An Exciting New Entry in the King Arthur Mythology

Tags: ,

King Arthur and I are friends, I’ve let myself indulge in probably too many of his tales through various types of media. When I got my hands of King of Ages: A King Arthur Anthology I was excited. Have multiple perspectives and going through time in reverse was a unique and interesting concept to me.

All 13 stories had something to add and each author had their own flair. Each tale stayed true to the tragedy that is the King Arthur mythology. Being able to experience it in different time periods was exceptional. These weren’t singular tales of Arthur and his Knights of the Round, the various incarnations of Arthur and his trusted seer Merlin learned and changed. The character’s were adequately represented through their short stories as being real people with ambitions, loyalty, and love. Some of the twists inside the novel are engaging and unexpected. If it sounds vague it’s because I don’t want to spoil it.

Admittedly the tales that were closer to King Arthur’s middle ages captured my interest the most. I believe it is because the romanticism of the age and the mythology of which he and Merlin represent. Two of my favorite tales involved Arthur as a swashbuckling pirate captain and another where he was a Viking leader. Both of the scenario’s seemed true to character and contributed to his mythology.

One of the most unique tales involves Arthur as a woman in the 1900’s organizing labor. It showed a more down to earth side to the king and represented him (or her in this case) as a champion of the people. It veered away from Arthur’s combat heavy history and really focused on character development and trust.

If you are a fan of the King Arthur Mythology I highly recommend the anthology. If you are a fan of Sci-Fi and Fantasy I highly recommend the anthology as well. If your thing is romance novels and biographies…maybe steer clear. Even then, branch out, you never know what may sway your desires.
