#BookReview: The Fort at River's Bend (Camulod Chronicles #5) by Jack Whyte






Synopsis: Merlyn Britannicus, leader of the colony known as Camulod, is faced with the task of educating his young charge, Arthur, future King of the Britons. Fearing for the life of his nephew when an assassination attempt is thwarted, Merlyn takes Arthur and his boyhood companions Gwin, Ghilleadh, and Bedwyr, to the ruins of a long-abandoned Roman fort far from Camulod. Once there, Merlyn realizes it's time for Arthur to become worthy of the sword he is destined to wield later in his life-the mighty Excalibur.

But beyond their idyllic hiding place, forces threaten the tenuous peace of Camulod. In Cambria, the death of Arthur's father Uther has left his people leaderless, and in Cornwall, Merlyn's enemy Peter Ironhair is gathering forces to destroy all Merlyn holds dear.

And Merlyn himself is struggling, because in order to make his dream of a united Britain real, he must put the person he loves most in the world in mortal danger-he and Arthur must return to Camulod.

My Review: Like all of the others in this series, I absolutely loved this book. In this book, we get to watch Arthur and his companions grow up and train to become the warriors and leaders that they were meant to be while they are hiding in Mediobogdum among Derrik of Ravenglass' people. We also get to see Merlyn fall in love again which just melted my heart. I was excited to see the storyline get closer to Arthur becoming the great king.
