Sinopsis:

With Uther, Jack Whyte, author of the richly praised Camulod Chronicles, has given us a portrait of Uther Pendragon, Merlyn's shadow--his boyhood companion and closest friend. And the man who would sire the King of the Britons.

From the trials of boyhood to the new cloak of adult responsibility, we see Uther with fresh eyes. He will travel the length of the land, have adventures, and, through fate or tragedy, fall in love with the one woman he must not have. Uther is a compelling love story and, like the other books in the Camulod Chronicles, a version of the legend that is more realistic than anything that has been available to readers before.

Review:

The seventh book in Jack Whyte's Camulod Chronicles, Uther is a parallel novel to The Eagle's Brood. It fills in some gaps about another major character in the Arthurian legend, Uther Pendragon, who is Merlyn's cousin and King Arthur's father.

Uther tells the tale of a young man torn between his love for his adopted Camulod and for the land of his birth, Cambria. Born to be one of the seven Chiefs of the Pendragon federation of Cambria, with the possibility of becoming its king one day, Uther goes from being a carefree boy to a seasoned leader of his people who must wage war to protect his land. Along the way, Uther loses his friendship with Merlyn and falls in love with the wife of his enemy, thereby forging a union that will lead to the birth of Arthur, King of the Britons.

Once again Whyte weaves a tale of intrigue, betrayal, love, and war in a gritty and realistic tale that continues to explore the legend of Camelot. With Uther, Whyte is at his best--he takes his time telling the story and allows his main characters to be both flawed and heroic. Fans of the Camulod Chronicles will be familiar with the inevitable ending of this book, but Uther is a worthwhile addition to the series. For those new to the series, Uther can stand alone as an entry to the story, but it might be best to start with The Skystone, where Whyte's tale truly begins. --Kathie Huddleston

Descripción de la librería

Welcome to Lime Bay and our home page. We started our on-line books in September of 1997. Why?.. because years of loving, reading and collecting books has gotten out of hand - that the hobby has grown bigger than the numerous book shelves throughout the house. Recently we were also asked to help with two family estates. One of these libraries was as eclectic as it was massive. So here we are¿ Our own interests are B.C. History, Art, Science and Nature, Collectables (especially toys, bottles), militaria, mystery and science fiction. If you didn¿t see books you were interested in listed in the system, especially Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, Ruth Rendell, Piers Anthony, please ask, especially if you are interested in pocket books. We tend not to list our pocketbooks, but we have a lot of mystery and science fiction. So where on earth is Lime Bay? It is an historic little cove off Victoria¿s outer harbour which looks out at the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic mountains, a view we fortunately get to share. The history of Lime Bay dates roughly to the 13th Century when it was used as a defensive site by the Salish peoples. In Historic times it served as a burial area for native peoples. Few traces remain of its past history, and today the bay¿s claim to fame is Spinnaker¿s Brew Pub, a must-stop on your waterfront stroll. Victoria has always maintained a strong British influence. It is situated on Vancouver Island on the far west Coast of North America. It is a city of gardens, antiques, lots of book stores, and a beautiful spot for a holiday.
