    Pendragon has been receiving some great reviews. That’s always hugely gratifying when you’ve laboured over a novel for a year, but it’s particularly nice when people ‘get’ what you’re trying to do.

    Pendragon – The Times Review

    by  • July 8, 2017 • Book News, reviews • 0 Comments

    Great review of Pendragon in The Times today: Pendragon has all the hallmarks of a traditional historical adventure story – there are battles, swords, and he bantering of violent men, all done with style. However, there is also intellectual heft to the story, with its themes of myth-making and the nature of power. You can...

    Review: The Devil’s Looking Glass

    by  • March 13, 2013 • reviews • 0 Comments

    “If you are a fan of Elizabethan England, the Fair Folk, Christopher Marlowe, spy novels, dark fantasy, swordplay, daring heroics, adventure serials, or any combination of the above, I highly recommend both novels in this ravishingly exciting, heartpoundingly intense, and extremely intelligent series–one which will stimulate your brain as well as your heart.” By...

    Hounds of Avalon Review

    by  • July 24, 2010 • reviews • 0 Comments

    “Each successive volume I read makes me fall further and further in love with Chadbourn’s overall vision, an immense narrative tapestry that utilizes countless mythologies, folk tales, legends, philosophies in what is in many ways a complex reimagining of the fantasy epic for the new millennium, built not only on extremely intelligent uses of...
