Waiting on Wednesday - Mar. 17, 2010

This weekly event is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we get to share which upcoming reads/new releases that we just can't wait to get our hands on.

My WoW for this week is Shadow of the King by Helen Hollick:

At long last, the peace King Arthur was born to usher in has settled over the realm. But Arthur was also born to be a warrior… and all true warriors are restless without a fight.

Ever since Mel @ He Followed Me Home told me about Helen Hollick and had reviewed the second book in the series, Pendragon's Banner (click here to see her review), I've been looking forward to reading this version of the Arthur tale (The first in the series is The Kingmaking.) And while, truly, I don't have to wait that much longer (Shadow of the King is next on my reading list) I've heard great things about Helen's work, so I just can't wait!

For more information on Helen Hollick, check out her website here:

Shadow Of The King looks good!

I do love Arthurian Legends -- I took a whole course on it in college. ;-) Awesome pick! I will be on the lookout for this author's work.

Jackie said...

Sheila - Yes! I just want to finish 2 more books and then I'll start :-)

Stephanie - A whole course on it! I'd think I'd died and gone to heaven, lol. I must admit I read Holy Blood, Holy Grail long before Dan Brown made that theory sound cool, but have a few other Arthur-ish books around too.

I've seen this on some other blogs lately and it does look like an interesting series.

By the way, you have an award on my blog.

Jackie said...

Christina - Thanks for the award! (And for stopping by :-)
