Superb retelling of a classic legend
The first thing to remember is that King Arthur did not actually exist in the ways he has been portrayed by historical researchers and film makers. The danger is that you will compare this retelling of the tale not to fact but to other imaginings on a same theme. Please don't. Look at Camelot from a fresh perspective, and you get a familiar theme told with a very different slant. Yes, you have some of the main characters (Arthur, Guinevere, Merlin) but their situations abilities and characters are far from what you would expect. It can be hard to swallow at first but you soon find yourself liking the sullen and vicious Merlin, the prat-with-a-heart Arthur or the hideously confused Morgana. You also find yourself wishing you could shove Guinevere off a cliff, but lets not go there. What you get is a storming retelling, with character development, progression and a few "I didn't see that one coming" moments. And the best thing of all? NOBODY is immune from death. A fantastic romp, not for the kiddies, and certainly different.
