    It's Dark Ages Britain. Arthur is a genocidal maniac. Merlin is a sycophantic creep. They're out to make a dragon, and scrappy mercenary pair Mael Mac Ronan and his pal Starkad the Dane are going to help them, like it or not.There's some fun stuff and some good ideas here, but it is Baen military SFF so be prepared for cardboard characters clinging to a mighty, well-jointed oaken oxcart of exposition bolstered by a firm, hard-packed Roman highway of miscellaneous detail.

    This book was a disappointment for me on many levels. The biggest disappointment was the title; had absolutely nothing to do with the book(view spoiler)[; it would have been more correct to have called it The Wannabe Dragon Lord or King Arthur Was A Crippled Jerk, or something other than the title given (hide spoiler)]. I kept expecting something other than what actually happened in the book; the ending was beyond anticlimactic for me. The character development was between weak and so-so. Not on [...]

    Very descriptive, and considering the size of the book it has a huge story with great characters. Definitely would recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy.

    Arthurian fantasy (another thing I was big into, you will see). Heavy on the military aspects of the Pendragon, but not surprising, given the author.

    A King Arthur tale. It was fairly entertaining and definitely well written, but the subject matter rather bores me. This book is on its way to the thrift store. =)
