Good thing I'm already interested in Wales & the Arthurian mythos. Wooden in a bad way that wouldn't draw in newcomers.

Unfortunately I agree with this reviewer

"A disappointing example of how thorough research can hobble a novel."(Kirkus Reviews, November 1, 2012)

Fascinating premise -- an archealogist and a linguist are on a quest to find out more about Arthur -- and also fall in love. There are several layers of history being examined -- pre-history in Britain, the failed Welsh rebellions, and the history of the main characters and their families. Unfortunately, the author can't quite pull it all together credibly, but his learned storytelling is still worth indulging in.
