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.

Although I am a voracious reader, I rarely read fantasy...I suppose because I am tired of being dragged into "created worlds" that rarely seem to be believeable or worthy of the time involved in figuring them out. This series of books (and I will tell you right now, like previous reviewers, GET THEM ALL, you will want to start Book II the MINUTE you finish the first!) is completely engrossing. I knew nothing of Celtic history or legends, but this author wove the threads of "real" legends and lore into his "otherworld" so completely and so perfectly you never question the reality of it all!! And to be perfectly honest, right up to the LAST sentence of the LAST book, he had me hooked. I am ashamed to say I put off more than one chore/responsiblity to get in ONE MORE CHAPTER before falling asleep at night!! (haha) It is rare that literature of this caliber comes along anymore and I for one cannot wait to read everything else Stephen Lawhead has written or will write in the future!! He has a true gift! Do yourself a favor and curl up with a set of books and a story that is completely sensory and real!!! ENJOY!!!!

From Stephen R. Lawhead's "Song of Albion" series, "The Paradise War" is one book that any lover of fiction will want to read. When Simon Rawnson accidentally steps into a portal, linking this world to the Otherworld in ancient Celtic Mythology, it is chaos for his roommate Lewis Gillies. Lewis at first doesn't think much of it, but as time goes on and Simon doesn't show up, Lewis starts seeing things that make him think the old Celtic Mythology is true. When, four months later, (and four years later in the Otherworld), Lewis finds himself trapped in a Celtic circle maze, Professor Nettleton, AKA Nettles, comes to help out. Nettles helps Lewis figure out what is going on with his friend and how it is slowly destroying our world. When Lewis starts to understand, he goes to find his friend in Albion, the Otherworld. When Lewis arrives, he finds himself all alone and trapped in between two warbands. Fortunately, Simon finds him and slays the opposing army's champion. To save Lewis's life, Simon lets Lewis get the honor of slaying the Champion, not getting the credit that Simon deserves. But as things progress, Lewis's role in Albion begins to change. The king sends him off to a warriors camp on Ynnys Sci. There, he is trained for seven years. When he goes back to the king, chaos has erupted. The chief bard of the king is dead, and someone is plotting to kill the king. What will happen next? Will Lewis get back to his world with Simon and stop the chaos that is destroying both worlds, or will Lewis die in a battle against the evil Lord Nudd, the king of the Otherworld's version of Hell. Read on and find out. If you liked the Pendragon or The Dragon King Trilogy Series, I will guarantee that you will love this book. There are two more books in this series, so the end of this one will leave you begging for more.
