From Scotland and now living in Canada, Jack Whyte writes fictionalized accounts of historical events and thereby brings long-dead figures to life.
In Uther, he describes a realistic Camulod (Camelot) and the politics of the tribes living on the island we know as Britain. Moreover, he proposes a version of the events leading to the birth of Arthur Pendragon, eventually to become King Arthur of Camelot, different from those portrayed in movies.
The writing is rich, the story compelling, and I find myself still haunted by the ending that may well be how Arthur came under the tutelage of Merlin.
Do you ever find that a book stays with you long after you have read it?
