The valleys of the downland with their clear chalk streams held small settlements and farms. The southern slopes were worked with terraced strip fields, the greens of sturdy growths of wheat and barley and oats patch working the land. Now, too, they came across flocks of cattle and sheep herded and guarded by family groups who lived and slept under rough shelters on the.

The Crimson Chalice (1979). About book: Another reworking of the Arthurian legend, but so bereft of Arthurian resonance that it might have worked better as an unvarnished or unvarnished historical novel of the Roman twilight in Britain. As the Saxon pillagers sweep ever farther west, young Baradoc, Roman army veteran & son of a British tribal chief, meets Tia, a Roman girl fleeing the troubles.

I loved this book years ago, and so glad I was able to find it again. Great story!
By far, the best book I have read on this topic. It's a more serious read, not filled with a bunch of child-like Magic and hocus pocus. Such a good read. And also I did buy it from this seller. It took about 3-4 weeks for it to arrive. But other than that the book came in great condition. I will try and post a picture of it :)
One of the best books I have ever read. Would recommend it to King Author fans. All three books were excellent.
A fantastic book that takes a more 'realistic' approach to tge Authurian legend. Highly recommend for those who want fantasy without loosing the perspective of real history.
I enjoyed reading this book, and found it captivating and very hard to put down. The author managed to convincingly bring both the times and the legend alive for me by adding details and interesting dimensions to the old legend. I found it interesting to read of Arturo as a minor 'warlord' who fought his way to power, and yet managed to retain his sense of love for humanity. A compassionate warrior, wise and forgiving. I also enjoyed reading of his parents' journeys and lives. That section of the book lays important framework for Arturo's life and adventures, as well as being extremely interesting on its own merits. When I was finished with the book, I felt as if I'd just read a bit of very interesting if this person really could have lived and fought and added something to the history of his country. I really enjoyed it.
This book was the author (victor canning) own interpretation of the Aurthurian legend. Much of the story was changed as i saw it, but the basic concept remained the same. I especially liked the first section of the novel. the journey of Baradock and Tia to Aqua Silis, because you really had no idea how arthur would fit in until they came across the chalice, but even then they planned to part, and it was a surprise how everything was brought together. in the second book, the growing up of Arto, not very much action too place, but it set up the scene for the great life Arto was destined to live. finally the third book had a lot of boring parts as the arm was being formed, and many battles took place, but i really liked the ending, althought i will not give it away. One thing i did not like about this book was that some of the names were changed while others were left. Gwenevier, and Merlin remained the same, so why was it neccissary to call arther Aruturo rather than arthur? that was the only thing that bothered me.
Natuwa ako ng mabasa ko ang librong ito. Hindi kasi siya boring.

Ang ganda ng kwento lalo na sa part kung saan nagkakilala at naging magkasama sa paglalakbay sina Baradock at Tia - grabe kaka-inlove. Ah basta lahat ng pwede mong maramdaman nasa librong ito : kaka-inlove,kakalungkot,kakainis, kakatuwa, kakaiyak.
