I will post my review of the whole series in this one review. This is another person's attempt at retelling the Arthurian legend. Whyte sets up Arthur as the son of a pioneering Roman colonist in England. As the Roman Empire crumbles, Arthur's father and his friend, who are both ex-legionaires, try to set up a communial settlement where they can preserve what they see as civilization. Whyte has clearly studied his Roman military history and does a wonderful job putting across a Roman view on the events taking place. However, he misses some very obvious points in the history of other cultures, leaving the reader wondering why he took so much time to get Rome right, but left the rest of the world's civilizations wanting. Anyway, I find them to be well writen and entertaining. Each two or three books go together as a set and are told from the perspective of one of the main characters, who's telling the story changes as you go from set to set. A fresh look at the Arthurian tales.
