Born of the chaos of the Dark Ages, the Dream of Eagles produced a king, a country and an everlasting legend--Camelot

It is 395 A.D., and as the Roman armies withdraw from Britain, anarchy threatens the colony that will one day be known as Camelot. Creating their own army and joining with the Celtic people of King Ullic Pendragon, the colonists emerge as a new breed of Britons, ready to forge the government that will be the Round Table and its Knights and to prepare the groundwork for the future coronation of Arthur, first High King of Britain.

With all the drama, passion and violence of England's most vibrant history, The Singing Sword continues Jack Whyte's bestselling chronicle of the dream that gave birth to an enduring legend.

A worthwhile read into UK folklore. Excellent character development and story content. Roman, Brit, Saxon, Dane, Scots, and Irish (the wild people) glimpse from a master historical fiction author. Very highly recommended.

2nd book in the "Dream of Eagles" series. Whyte continues the story of a colony in medieval England trying to defend itself and to make laws. He describes warfare as though he lived in that time, and he shows the change in strategy as larger horses and longer swords are needed. The story is told through ironsmith Publius Varrus, whose oldest daughter marries the son of the Celtic king Ullic. Fascinating mixture of war and politics, for England is Roman in these years. Varrus has a friend Caius, a Roman senator, whose son found favor with the regent of the Emperor Honorius. History comes to life!
