    About "Jack Whyte"

    1. Jack Whyte

      Jack Whyte is an author and writer born and raised in Scotland, but has been living in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada since 1967.Whyte s major work to date is the A Dream of Eagles series as it is titled in Canada, but known as The Camulod Chronicles in the United States and elsewhere This series of historical novels presents the tale of King Arthur set against the backdrop of Roman Britain This retelling of the popular legend eschews the use of magic as in T H White s The Sword in the Stone to explain Arthur s ascent to power and instead relies on the historical condition with some artistic license of post Roman Britain to support the theory that Arthur was meant to counter the anarchy left by the Roman departure from Britain in 410 AD and the subsequent colonization and invasion of Britain by various peoples from Northwestern Europe, including the Saxons, Jutes, Franks, and Angles Whyte incorporates both traditional Arthurian names, places and events albeit in gaelic or Latin form as well as the names of various historical figures that have been suggested as being the possible basis for the original King Arthur legend The tacit implication is that Whyte s version of history is the true story that has become distorted over time to become the legend and stories of magic that we know today.Jack Whyte served as the official bard of The Calgary Highlanders and performed several tracks of poetry and song on the 1990 recording by the Regimental Pipes and Drums of The Calgary Highlanders entitled Eighty Years of Glory The Regimental Pipes, Drums and Bard of The Calgary Highlanders.

    1. Published 10 10 2013Author Jack WhyteRecommended for fans of the Arthurian eraJust finished reading this brilliant book I got for Christmas For anyone who enjoys fiction with a historial theme this book is a must It has an excellent discriptive text that makes you feel as though you are in the book going through all the trials and tribulations and battles with Clothar It seems they had the same cold wet weather then as we do now Seriously I thoroughly enjoyed this book as can t wait to read The [...]


    2. The final two novels in the Camulod Chronicles this one and book 9, The Eagle form a duology within the larger series and are told from the point of view of the young Frank, Clothar We know him as Lancelot but in keeping with the realistic and historically appropriate method in which this entire series is written, the name Clothar is much appropriate.This novel is mostly a coming of age novel for Clothar, written in his first person perspective, telling the tale from the viewpoint of his later [...]


    3. Another companion piece to Whyte s Dream of Eagles series, this, and its follow up book, The Eagle, can be read without having read the other series However, being a fan of the series, and having read them from Book One of the Dream series onward, as he wrote them, I recommend reading them before this one It is the story of Clothar, a Frankish knight who becomes known as The Lancer the character in other works called Lancelot , and how he comes to King Arthur s Court As usual, Whyte s writing st [...]


    4. If you are looking for the traditional tale of Lancelot and Arthur and Camelot as implied on the back of the book, look elsewhere If you want great book set mostly in Gaul, and much later on in Britain in the chaos after the Roman legions left, and learn the history of who Lancelot could have been before the tragedy began, then dive into this tale and enjoy The other books in the series are also overall great stories.


    5. It finally got to the point when I had to drop this series, even though I m close to the end I just don t care about anyone and the stories in the books seem to get slower and slower with each book I liked the first few books in the series, but past around number four, it goes downhill and I wish I had stopped reading then.



    6. This book is a unique and completely historical look on the story of Lancelot and how the Arthurian legend could have actually happened It is a nice change to read books based on myth that are actually historically acurate and aren t full of magic and witches and vampires and all of that fun stuff Don t get me wrong I like those kinds of books, i have read the twilight books and everything but Jack Whyte s historical fiction saga on the myth of King Artur is unlike any books I have ever read The [...]


    7. This is the second book written after the crowning of Arthur whose events happen almost entirely before the crowning I think it s also one of the best in a wobbly series, perhaps because it doesn t focus on Whyte s annoying version of Merlyn I liked the new main character he introduces and the theme of hidden or second names that goes throughout I feel like the book ended rather abruptly with at least one point oddly unresolved The tendency of all the good men in the book to think and talk the s [...]


    8. At last, Lancelot arrives Well, in his own way I have absolutely loved exploring the generations pre dating Arthur s birth and to have experienced his upbringing foundation of his reign Whats , the meticulous placement of the legends within beautifully written historical context has truly enriched these age old stories beyond compare, but to finally arrive at some of the most prominent characters of Arthurian tales is exciting The introduction of Lancelot and Guenivere in this book has inspired [...]


    9. This is the 8th book in the Camulod Chronicles Leaving Merlyn behind as narrator, this book switches to Lancelot, the first Arthurian book I ve come across to be told from Lancelot s point of view In this series, he has the historically likely name of Clothar, who is endowed with the nick name Lance thrower The previous book ended with Arthur s coronation as High King of Britain this book starts many years after that, with Clothar as on old man traveling back to Britain to pay a visit to Merlyn [...]


    10. Once again, good writing and a good story, but like Uther it s not part of the core storyline Although there are a lot of interesting setups here explaining some parts of the King Arthur myth, it s told by someone other than Merlyn and his uncle This is a problem because, like most authors, Jack Whyte only has one voice It s believable that one man and his nephew may think and write very similarly, especially since both are similar personalities, but extend that to a cousin who is known for havi [...]


    11. Another amazing series by Jack Whyte If you enjoy being immersed into the story, these tales will certainly provide you with the right tools.From The novels are a rendition of the Arthurian legend that attempt to propose a possible explanation for the foundation of Camulod an alternate spelling of Camelot , Arthur s heritage and the political situation surrounding his existence The setting series begins during the Roman departure from Britain and continues for 150 years ending during the settlem [...]


    12. I was pleasantly surprised by this book It was a flea market find and I guess I picked it up without even reading the cover because when I sat down to read it 6 months later I saw right away that it was the 8th book in a series I d never read I decided to give it a go anyway since it s a series based on Camelot and I absolute love Arthurian legend and figured I could keep up For being a fairly familiar story it was wildly novel and entertaining This book follows the author s re imagining Lancelo [...]


    13. This is really 3 stars plus I do like this series, and this one, about Launcelot s life before he joins King Arthur, is very good It helps to know that it needs to be read as a stand alone book, though, because it does not further the Camelot story and you will be disappointed in it if you hope for that That said, this is the 8th in the series Whyte s style is getting a bit wearing He writes well and tells an exciting story, but the bulk of the books, this one included, are each quite long mainl [...]


    14. This 8th novel in the Camulood series focuses on Clothar s journey into manhood as a leader and warrior Clothar is, in fact, Lancelot in the fabled King Arthur stories As a young boy, Clothar attends a school led by Bishop Germanus, who teaches all of his students logic, philosophy, Christian religion, as well as battle skills When Clothar is asked to return to his home with messages for his uncle, the King of Benwick, he comes to blows with many warriors and brigands He also becomes involved in [...]


    15. The eight book in the Camulod Chronicles This one moves away from Camulod, into Gaul, where we meet a new character Clothar, whom history will remember as Lancelot This is my least favourite book in the series Clothar displayed very little personality, and the things about him I found most interesting his relationship with his adoptive family, his devotion to Bishop Germanus and his brief intention to become a priest, his grief for his lost friend and his fear in the face of his first battle wer [...]


    16. Ugh absolutely horrible Atrocious This series has definitely gone downhill This didn t even have anything to do with Arthur except maybe in the last 2 pages The writing was terrible There were anachronisms all over the place, and worse yet, there were inconsistencies throughout the book I think Jack Whyte has definitely lost steam by this point I understand he didn t want to villainize Lancelot or Clothar any than he already has, but one of Whyte s biggest downfalls is trying to make a character [...]


    17. A very disappointing book by Jack Whyte s standards, as I found most of the action to come in the middle of the book, and rarely anywhere else This novel is about the young man who would grow up to become Sir Lancelot, and takes us right up until the time he first meets King Arthur While the premise is interesting, and the Lancelot story has had little exposure compared to his famous King, the knight s youth is rather humdrum There is the unique twist about him being born of noble blood, and, sa [...]


    18. Up to this point we had a consistent Chronicle of the growth and interaction of several families whose histories were comingled with the shaping of the post Roman Britain Now the author goes totally outside of that familiar structure to introduce wholly new characters with whom we are not familiar The author does make a half hearted attempt to tie the new characters to the old, but it only magnifies the lack of continuity The reader is forced to consider did the author have an inventory of chapt [...]


    19. the blurb on the back of the book is Lancelot , raised to champion justice and righteousness in his boyhood Gaul seeks sanctuary in a new home Britain , where he meets Arthur The book is 501 pages long , and Lancelot doesn t even see Britain till 400 pages have gone bye , and meets Arthur with 3 pages left , there in a nutshell is why this author is so bloody frustrating ,once again , remove 300 pages and get the same storyline , the only time this one picks up pace is the cival war of Benwick.


    20. The eighth book in the Camulod series and of the same detailed descriptions of such things as the king s bedchamber, two nasty villains with no shred of decency, wise military mentors, a need to hide the young hero from attempts on his life from two nasty villains , and happy coincidences to make our heroes lives easier Still an interesting enough read and a fast read especially through the boring parts These eight books featuring the supermen behind King Arthur will culminate with The Man Hims [...]


    21. Not nearly as good as the rest of the series Fun to read and learn the origins of Lancelot , but the book did not live up to what I was expecting after having read the first 100 pages or so Strong start, slower in the middle, got really slow near the end, then just kind of fizzled out One book to go in the series, I hope it is a better read than this one I debated even reading these last two, as the series could have and should have ended after the previous book, which I loved, but he wrote the [...]


    22. Mr Whyte has wonderful, accurate history with sometimes excruciating detail although it s not boring or hard to read The fiction is fairly entrancing as well, with characters who are invariably strong and witty, whether good or bad The only thing that I would have to say is that the good are very, very good, and the bad are very naughty Seems a few of them would have to have a curl in the middle of their forehead.


    23. Book Six of the Camolod Chronicles continues an alternate version of the Arthurian legend, one base on likely historical facts and not magic or mysticism In The Lance Thrower we met Clothar the Frank from Gaul and later known as Lancelot Merlin and Arthur don t show up until the end of the book and at times I found the story a tad plodding Still it is rich in historical detail and worth the read if you like stories from this time period or want a different perspective on the legends.


    24. Here is another first half of a longer story Whyte is trying to tell, and it doesn t hold up to the amazing ending of the last one, because the battle scenes get rather monotonous and they aren t crafted as well as some of his others There are also some editing issues late in the book However, the character moments are as wonderful as ever when the focus lies on Clothar The prologue is as good as anything Whyte has written, and the ending is well done Very enjoyable.


    25. The Lance Thrower wasn t the best of the Camulod stories, but look at what it had to live up to The Skystone and The Eagles Brood are two of the best books I ve ever read Clothar s personal history was a little tedious but, in order for the reader to understand Clothar himself, it was essential to the story And what a cliffhanger


    26. Jan 2015 So I didn t really read this book for two reasons 1 I think I ve read this before but I was fooled because the title is different Canadian Edition 2 I read the series so long ago I d have to re read the previous 8 books to know what s up.This series was my favorite of all the Arthurian tales I ve read.


    27. I ve enjoyed the entire Camulod series Jack Whyte has put a very plausible spin on the events in 5th Century England I would recommend the series to anyone who enjoys historical fiction these are NOT romances.


    28. If it has one star I liked it a lot If it has two stars I liked it a lot and would recommend itIf it has three stars I really really liked it a lot If it has four stars I insist you read it If it has five stars it was life changing


    29. This one went back to the gritty harshness of life that made the first two books so good The author has woven a brilliant tale I can t stop marvelling at the amount of research he must have poured into this to make it so historically plausible I forget it s fiction.
