About this deal

This is very important, for it alerts us to the fact that when a believer chooses to take a worldly path, he sets himself in direct opposition to the godly path God desires for him. When the things of the world move from our hands into our hearts, that is the violation that concerns God the most! When Derfel is in a dangerous situation, you already know he’s going to survive because he’s alive to tell the tale. Constantly subverting the power structures of Britan, she is an enigma and the spiritual torchbearer of the mysticism of Merlin.

Camelot exists only in the poets' dreams, while in our Dumnonia, even in those good years, the harvests still failed, the plagues still ravaged us and wars were still fought. Abandoning his virtuous nature, Arthur storms and retakes the seat of kings at Caer Cadarn, a symbolic move which sends word to Dumnonia that Arthur lives and still has power. Derfel and Ceinwyn soon discover that Mordred is an insolent, wicked child whom they have difficulty controlling and who enjoys inflicting pain on others. I beg of you that when I am present I may not have to show boldness with such confidence as I count on showing against some who suspect us of walking according to the flesh. Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition.Although every chapter is still very long, with 13 chapters out of 470 pages, it never felt like a slog going through it because Cornwell’s prose worked so well for me. Derfel himself is to be rewarded with land and made the new champion of Dumnonia as well as the caretaker for the boy king Mordred, as Arthur wants to remove Mordred from the growing influence of the Christian faction within Dumnonia. On the night of Ceinwyn and Lancelot's betrothal feast, Derfel breaks the bone and Ceinwyn goes to Derfel instead of Lancelot. I thought he did a good job on the Winter King, but some of the Monty Python-esque women's voices were a bit awkward. This one was a little slow at the start and it took me a while to get back into the flow of the style and era but when things got going then the pages flew by.

Arthur now rules as regent for the child king Mordred, his enemies subdued - but chaos is always hovering in the chaotic fifth century. Their footsteps will not stir a rush on the floor nor frighten the mice that live in the monastery’s thatched roof. Because of Mordred's incompetence in allowing Lancelot and his Christian followers to ravage Dumnonia, Arthur declares Mordred unfit to rule as king, a proclamation recognized by Cuneglas and Merlin.Enemy of God is a fantastic sequel to bridge the gap towards the final book in the trilogy, 'Excalibur. What is to follow is an action-packed Warlord adventure which will show Arthur in full flow and his dream for peace hopefully come true. He creates the roundtable toward this end, though most of the names we are familiar with are missing.
