Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but I actually changed jobs so there was a huge lack in posts but I have several reviews for you and this is the first one of the next bunch. By the light of Camelot was a collection of Arthurian stories that range from the past to present. It was an interesting collection but I have to admit that it was not exactly my favorite collection. It’s not the books fault though, when you have a collection you are bound to have some stories that are not as great as others. So let’s get to it.

Star rating: 3 out of 5
This collection of Arthurian tales varied incredibly. It is unfair to give the book a low score because some authors were not as strong as others. This became evident from story to story.There were a few poems and tales that took place in modern and ancient times. I enjoyed that the tales gave you some background on lesser known knights of the round table, but not all of them were well written.
- It was fun to read the stories of some of the lesser known knights of the round table
- The tale that was set in present time was pretty fantastic. I loved how the author was able to mix together the myths of old with a blend of modern times. Seriously, a knight of the round table with memories of that past life stuck in a world where that life was only seen as myths….fantastic
- While there were several stories that were very interesting it did not seem like an even spread.
Overall: The book was interesting and some of the tales were pretty fantastic, but be aware that some parts will absolutely drag. When I got to the stories that were written well I devoured them, but the other stories just dragged.
