More inexpensive ebook goodies!

You can now download Stephen R. Lawhead's Taliesin, the first volume in The Pendragon Cycle, for only 0.99$ here.

Here's the blurb:

It was a time of legend, when the last shadows of the mighty Roman conqueror faded from the captured Isle of Britain. While across a vast sea, bloody war shattered a peace that had flourished for two thousand years in the doomed kingdom of Atlantis.

Taliesin is the remarkable adventure of Charis, the Atlantean princess who escaped the terrible devastation of her homeland, and of the fabled seer and druid prince Taliesin, singer at the dawn of the age. It is the story of an incomparable love that joined two worlds amid the fires of chaos, and spawned the miracles of Merlin...and Arthur the king.

I've read Taliesin many years ago and I'll say two things for Lawhead and this book:

- Nobody writes descriptions like him. The eruption of a volcano in this book is a multiple-page good example of it.

- This book is terribly boring. If you're looking for fantasy with at least some action, this one isn't for you.

Can't go wrong giving it a go for $0.99, but generally this is a book I would not recommend.

I'm inclined to agree with you Pedro. I read a few Lawhead books in the past, and while I wouldn't say they were awful, they weren't very interesting either.

For less than 1 euro I will give it a try, cheers for the head up though :)

I am a big Lawhead fan, but this is one of his poorer books.

"Song of Albion" trilogy and "Byzantium" were great.
