#43. At the Crossing-Places

At the Crossing-Places by Kevin Crossley-Holland
Number 2 in the Arthur Trilogy

Pages: 367
Finished: July 20, 2007
Reason for Reading: Second in the trilogy
Rating: 5/5

First Sentence:

The first day of my new life began with ice and ended with flames.

Recommend: Yes. Arthurian tales are one of my favourite sub-genres whether they be fantasy or historical and this trilogy is no exception. This book continues the story from The Seeing Stone and while maybe not quite as good as the first is pretty close. A mixture of historical fiction with a bit of fantasy this is a satisfying read. The ending leaves me anxious to read the final book.
