The road topped a gentle rise, and suddenly Isca Dumnoniorum lay before them, with the fortress-crowned Red Mount dark with shadows against the evening sky; and Marcus came back to the present with a jerk. The farm in the Etruscan hills could wait until he was old and tired and famous; in the present was the glory of his first command.

Great for my grandson.

-But still a worthy read.
Sutcliff captures the dark, dreary mood in the settings and descriptions of this book as Arthur slowly realizes Merlin's prophecy from the first book (Sword and the Circle); that one day, his reign would come to dismal end, is finally coming true.
While at times I felt kind of rushed during the story telling, I never lost interest and still felt the emotions of the characters very well.
In particular, Sir Gawaine, who,together with his youngest brother Gareth, have been my favorites ever since I first picked up an Arthur book.
After the loss of his brothers(a sad but unfortunatly fast part of the story), Gawaine's attitude is extremely believable, and well brought out from the more authoratative reading in La Morte D'Arthur.
And King Arthur's feelings and reactions to everything around him are also believable, as he becomes more embroiled in the war against Mordred (who is well portrayed as a slinky, sly man who loves to wear black capes and hangs around in doorways fiddling a peacock feather between his fingers. . .).
In very sad fashion, the book ends, much like the actual La Morte D'Arthur, leaving you wishing Camelot and the Round Table didn't have to crumble as sadly as it did in both Morte D'Arthur and Sutcliff's fine retelling.
Read this book,and the first two.
Then read La Morte D'Arthur. It will give you an even bigger picture, and a greater appreciation for this exceptional retelling of one of the greatest stories.
READ IT!!!

Do you like mythology? Do you like suspense and action? Well, I have the book for you. This book is about the death of King Arthur, and what leads up to his death. The Road to Camlann is about the darkest days of the Round Table. Some of the characters in this book are, of course King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, Sir Lancelot, Sir Gawain, and King Arthur's evil son Mordred. In this book Mordred tries to defeat King Arthur.
I loved The Road to Camlann. It was very suspenseful. It was full of action and intensity. This might be the last book in the series by Sutchcliff, but it is really good. I would definitely recommend this book. It is wonderful!

This book is about the worst times of the Round Table. There are many wars, treacherous events, and lots of hatred. One of the treacherous events is the love between Queen Guenever and Sir Lancelot. The king's stepson Mordred causes all of this destruction. He wants to destroy the Round Table and gain the throne for himself. In the end everyone loses and many die including King Arthur and Mordred.
I liked some parts of this book and didn't like others. It sometimes got boring but I am very much interested in the medieval times. Especially of King Arthur and the Round Table. The thing that interested me most was a phrase on the front cover. "The darkest days of the Round Table are at hand." This pharse describes the book in one sentence.
I also found another pharse that I liked. " After years of Arthur's fair rule, evil has come to Camelot." This sentence describes the plot of the story. You can conclude from this that many calamities will happen in the book. This is a good book to read if you like suspense, treachery, and wars. Otherwise you may not like it.
My least favorite part was when the final war took place at Camlann. There many knights died and one of them was Mordred. However Sir Gawain died there and King Arthur was wounded and later died aftere the war. The war was very bloody and got a little boring. The most boring part was at the end when a few of the knights including Sir Lancelot become monks. They all eventually died of old age.

I read The Road to Camlann for the first time several years ago and I couldn't put it down. It was suspenseful, well written, touching and definitely one of Rosemary Sutcliff's finest books.
It is an Arthurian legend, based on the downfall of the round table afrer Arthur's illegitimate son Mordred arrives at Camelot and the love affair between Guinivere and Lancelot.
I've read several other Arthurian legends aimed at young adults, and none of them have measured up to The Road to Camlann, which remains to this day one of the best books I've ever read.

The Road to Camlann is the story of the betrayal and conflict that brought about the end of King Arthur.

With the affair between Guenevere and Lancelot discovered, the
conflict and jealousy between Gawain and Lancelot intensifies. This
gives Modred something to work with, in bringing about the beginning of
the end.

Perhaps not quite as good as the first two books in this trilogy.
Modred
Sutcliff depicts these authorian tales with the pace, technique and vigour I have become to associate with her writing. I recommend this particular novel for anybody above the age of 10 years who is interested in historical fiction.
The book was intresting and had many twists. Most stories have a happy ending, but this one didn't. I had to read the book for school, the teacher would assign us a chapter a night and I would want to read more.
