I enjoyed this more realistic take on the legend of Arthur. Here he is not presented as a King, but as a Warlord who is trying(and many times failing) to unite Britons against the invading Saxons, but just as often, he is battling other Britons who are vying for more power. This was first published in 1996 and I think, even though this is more definitely historical fiction (less fantasy), this influenced a lot of the grimdark fiction that came after this in the fantasy genre. It is dark, violent, gory, ruthless, and at times hard to read, especially the sexual assault scenes. The author was trying to accurately portray the violence of daily life that was inescapable during this time, and in that regard he was successful. As far as the story goes, the plot meandered a bit before an overarching story revealed itself. A lot of time was spent establishing the characters and this world. The characters are well-rounded and interesting. Arthur is a flawed, tragic human whose nature has him fighting himself as much as his enemies. Merlin is a crazed, single-minded asshole who is only looking to reestablish Britain's "natural gods" and to kick out any invaders. Our narrator is very sympathetic, and at the beginning of this story, has a bit of hero-worship for Arthur going on. As the story progresses, and as he matures, our narrator learns that Arthur is still a hero, but he's also just a man, not some God-like being. And that's what I find interesting about this novel, it reimagines a legend and mythic character as a real person, with ambitions, flaws, and weaknesses. I'm looking forward to seeing how this story plays out, even though I know if it follows the legend, it won't end well for Arthur... ( )

High King Uther has died, leaving his infant grandson as heir and his bastard son and gifted warlord Arthur as his protector in a country that has fallen into chaos, with threats from both within and without. Told in the first person from the flawed perspective of one of Arthur’s sworn soldiers, Derfel, in his old age, The Winter King humanizes many of the characters from the legendary tale of Arthur, bringing both perspective and realism to the story.

I picked this up on the recommendation of some of the readers of /r/Fantasy, who suggested it as an Arthurian tale that might not drive me nuts. Unfortunately, I really just do not click with ye olde Arthur of the Britons, and I was honestly glad to be finished with this story, even though it was really written very well.

I did kind of get a kick out of some of the locales of this book, though, as on one of my trips to England I went to Glastonbury and got to see the holy thorn and the tor, and see some of the locales legend has associated with the story, and this is the first Arthurian tale I’ve picked up since that visit.

Either way, very good historical fiction; I’d have loved it more if they’d changed all the names to protect the guilty. ( )

Long chapters and lots of detail made this an intricate story.

A more realistic imagining of the legend of Arthur and Merlin. I found this to be a heavy read, and not particularly engaging. ( )

Los romanos por fin han abandonado Britania, y enseguida se ha desencadenado una lucha a muerte para cubrir el vacío de poder y, al mismo tiempo, los sajones aguardan en la frontera la ocasión para invadir el país. La muerte del rey supremo, Uther Pendragon, dejando como heredero al trono a Mordred, aún un bebé, no hace sin o complicar la situación y acabar con el último atisbo de unidad. Sólo un hombre es capaz de hacerse cargo de la tutela del niño y evitar así que el reino caiga en manos de sajones o acabe arrasado por las luchas intestinas, y ese hombre es un hijo ilegítimo de Pendragon que vive en el exilio, un guerrero mítico protegido por el mago Merlín que responde al nombre de Arturo. Sumergirse en estas páginas es entrar en un mundo violento y despiadado, en una época convulsa de batallas, luchas y emboscadas, en las que de vez en cuando surgen personajes tan fascinantes como la reina Ginebra o el enigmático Lancelot, y el talento narrativo de Bernard Cornwell consigue que el lector sienta el peso de la cota de malla, oiga el fragor del combate y se lance a la carrera hacia un desenlace inesperado. En esta primera entrega de las Crónicas del señor de la guerra, Derfel, uno de los guerreros a las órdenes de Arturo que sirve de hilo conductor de la historia, adentra al lector en una época convulsa de sangre, fuego y acero.
