The Singing Sword by Jack Whyte

Title: The Singing Sword

Author: Jack Whyte

Genre: Fantasy

Summary: The Colony fights its first battles, both as a official entity of the Roman forces and on personal levels.

The Take-Away: As the title suggests, Excalibur is born in this novel, but not until the very end. Again the history of the collapse of Roman is the background of the novel, but unlike The Skystone, I had a hard time putting this book down. The writing was better, I believe, as was the telling of the story.

Recommendation: Start with The Skystone but have this one close by.
