    So I clicked on I m finished but to be accurate, I m simply finished with Arthur Imperator, and this series as a whole My Kindle says I m 53% through and honestly, I ve lost the will to continue Again this was another free book through the Lending Library, and I was hopeful after reading Arthur Britannicus, the first in the series, that things would pick up for our hero, who really did have a pretty easy go of taking over Britain initially.And in fairness things are dire for Arthur in this second book, as he faces challenges from Picts, Saxons, Jutes and other barbarians, as well as Rome looking to reclaim its lost island The problem for me here is that I just wasn t convinced enough to care Technically speaking the book suffers, in my opinion, from the author s choice to switch from first to third person voice at regular intervals I don t like first person to begin with in my stories, and here Arthur appears to be recounting events as they happened from a period in the future But this is never made clear Sometimes he allud...

    Enjoyed the premise Did not enjoy the repetitive explanations of this character being a Druid, etc Maybe once, near the beginning of the book, but not over and over, at least once a chapter if that particular character came up.

  5. Chris Mort says:

    The author does a good job of weaving the historical fact and the fiction However, a large part of the book regurgitated the previous book and there is a lot of repeating and explaining past events.

    Britons, Saxons, Celts, Picts, and Romans Throw in a Wizard and a Sorceress and you have a great story Can t wait to finish the Trilogy.
