The Song of Albion trilogy are some of the best books I have ever read!! They deserve 10 stars! I read fiction critically, paying attention not only to the quality of plot, but also quality of writing and, most importantly, development of characters. Stephen Lawhead's books in general, and this trilogy in particular, satisfy me in every detail. The plots are original and very well researched, and the writing is excellent, with inspiring but not over-used metaphors and subtle alliteration. The characterization is excellent! I could not believe when reading some of these reviews that the reviewer had read the same books that I did. I can truly say that I have never read books in which the characters are better developed than in these. These books deserve to be compared with Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which are my all-time favorite books!
Read these books if you like, as I do: Celtic mythology; high fantasy; believable fictional characters; writing that is at once both poetic and gritty; anything written by Tolkien; well-written fantasy with Christian values...I could go on, actually--let's just say READ THESE BOOKS.
For those people who thought that the Celtic mythology setting of these books was not accurate and rather forced, I beg to disagree. Having studied Celtic mythology informally quite a lot for the past couple of years, I happen to know that these books are VERY well researched. The more that I learn about Celtic mythology, the more I am impressed by the accuracy of the Song of Albion setting. You will have learned more than you know, as you will find if these books inspire you to look further into this fascinating genre of mythology! And the Otherworld setting is, to me, very believable. I could almost believe it is real.

In this second book of the "Song of Albion" series, Lawhead fleshes out his landscape and characters, yes, and even the villians. For some reason, he switches narrators and unnecessarily forces the reader to make a mental jump, but once that jump is made, the story breezes along.
Tegid, the bard, and Llew, the reluctant king, set about carving a new life for themselves while Meldron, the usurper, thinks they're dead. They have time to rebuild and form a company of sorts, but when Meldron catches on to their survival, we know the showdown will eventually come--and to mostly satisfactory results.
Lawhead fills his story with rich details and memorable scenes, but, as in the first book, he makes some apparent blunders. Though I was intrigued by the re-appearance of Nettles from the first book, his character never played a true role in the events of the story. Lawhead seemed to set him up for significance, then let me down. This type of thing happens occasionally in Lawhead's writing, whether due to poor plotting or forgetfulness, I do not know.
Overall, though, I have to give this book a glowing recommendation. Once finished and set aside, I couldn't get it out of my mind. The scenes were still there, the characters still breathing, the questions still rumbling through my thoughts. Maybe, in this fictitous world come to life, like the real world we inhabit, people and events don't always react or go as planned. Maybe, there are bigger purposes, as of yet unknown to this reader. Maybe, I don't care...I just want to believe the Otherworld is out there, and the Song of Albion is being sung, bringing life to all who hear it.

Von Ein Kunde am 18. April 2001
Format: Taschenbuch
After the first Book, the Paradise War, Part 2 of the Song of Albion Trilogy follows : "The Silver Hand".
The first thing you'll notice when beginning to read the second book is the fact, that Lawhead switches the narrative view from Llew's to Tegid's, thus causing some confusion at the beginning.
Llews attempt to remove Simon from Albion failed, and problems grow even larger. Tegid makes Llew the new king, angering Meldron, who thought he'd be king after his father's death. Their imprisonment and escape are just the start of a long line of events, Llew loosing is right hand and Tegid his eyesight, both being maimed by cruel Meldron.
Again they manage to flee, and try to build up a new hope.
As in the first book, Lawhead writes and describes very detailed, but far from being boring. His knowledge of the Celtic Culture is used again and brings the world to life. Celtic words and Culture played an important role in creating the Story. The Story has no real "Time outs", where boring passages appear, it is all exciting from the beginning to the end.
I just couldn't stop until I finished reading this book, it was like a drug. It makes you wish to live in Albion for real, i even had alot of dreams about it. Lawheads utopian kind of world owns so many aspects i miss in our world. The book makes you think about everything, you start to see our world from a different angle. Is there some kind of world existing parallel to ours ? If yes, it would be my dearest wish to live there, among lots of honorable people who would give their lives for each other anytime.
Believe me, these thoughts will rumble through your mind, too...
