    One thought on “The Eagles' Brood

    1. Artemas on said:

      Not a review but As with the previous books, this was a great story, but the glossing over of some in my mind important events was a bit strange and ultimately made me remove a star from my rating.For those who have read this book view spoiler Cassandra Deirdre , Lot, and Uther s deaths left me feeling a bit unfulfilled I know we are in Merlyn s POV, and he wasn t present for these events, but still hide spoiler Edit after just finishing Uther I decided to bump this one from 4 stars to 5 because [...]

    2. Benjamin Thomas on said:

      Once again I am marveling at this series known as The Camulod Chronicles the vast epic story of the Legends of King Arthur, but told as historical novels rather than fantasy This is a series to savor over time rather than rush through from one book to the next, tempted as I am to do so simply because of the fantastic storytelling and pure reading enjoyment.This third volume starts a new chapter in the series as we have moved on to a new generation in the larger story The first two books are told [...]

    3. Lisa (Harmonybites) on said:

      This book is part of a series of books based on the legends of King Arthur I ve read quite a few books based on Arthurian lore, but this series is unique It doesn t stand out for the quality of the writing, which is no than decent It does stand out for the imagination and verisimilitude with which it uses history Few Arthurian books I ve read written in the last few decades are unabashed fantasy in the tradition of T.H White s The Once and Future King with a Merlin that lives backwards and chan [...]

    4. David on said:

      The Eagle s Brood brings this pre Arthurian tale to an important junction the birth of King Arthur Along the way, Caius Merlyn suspects his cousin, Uther, of an act or outrageous barbarism upon a young woman He brings the woman to his secret hideaway nicknamed Avalon and there nurses her back to health and eventually to love In the meantime, the question burns DID UTHER DO THIS THING The question in my mind Was Whyte watching pornography when he dreamed up the conflict between Uther and Merlyn s [...]

    5. Carrie Slager on said:

      For me, The Eagle s Brood was such a sad book I had to say goodbye to some of my favourite characters from the previous two books Picus, Publius Varrus and Equus Although Caius Merlyn doesn t have the flair and sense of humour of Publius Varrus, I really did grow to love him as a narrator.The characters were great in this We see everything through Merlyn s eyes, with all of his judgments and flaws He s a good person but not a perfect character and gradually realizes his flaws He can be than a l [...]

    6. Beorn on said:

      Initially a one star review may seem harsh, hostile or something else vindictive but hopefully I ll elucidate on why I felt that the only realistic score for me personally.The frustrating thing about Jack Whyte is that you only have to dip into one of his books to recognise that he has an undeniable talent at creating believable, realistic tangible characters and an atmosphere that is rich in detail immersive He just believes fervently in burying all that positive plus points beneath rhetorical [...]

    7. Jonathan on said:

      Recommended for Lovers of Arthurian Legend, Lovers of Feasible Historical FictionThis third installment in Whyte s A Dream of Eagles series eclipses the first two It skips a generation from the previous narrator, smith Publius Varrus, to Caius Merlyn Britannicus, a very particular and believable take on the Merlin character.While the story lacks a tidy development arc, there are subplots that keep it interesting The bread and butter of this book, though, is the writing itself There are some fier [...]

    8. Robert Risher on said:

      As wonderful as the previous books in the series were, this has far surpassed in quality and content anything that Whyte conceived previously His mythos grows ever richer with each passing story, and this in particular was truly spectacular The Eagles Brood is one of the few stories that I have so longed to hear since childhood, yet never suspected I would, and certainly not so grandly Though his work may not currently receive the credit it so duly deserves, I hope that history will boldly mark [...]

    9. Helen on said:

      I d love to edit it, but it s not here to edit The three books that take us from the Roman legions to the birth of Arthur are enthralling Every time I thought there was an historical point to note, Whyte noted it, everything I ever learned about the Eagles in Britain was there and a lot I never learned This is what historical fiction should be Now that I ve got as far as Arthur s birth I ll have to go through the pile of books here and find the rest Everyone thinks they have the best take on Art [...]

    10. Julie on said:

      I just finished it this weekend, I had goosebumps when I read the ending This series is a MUST read all the way so far, for anyone who s interested in Arthurian stuff I love how Jack Whyte humanized and rationalized the iconic symbols of the legend Avalon, the Round Table, Excalibur and such, even Merlyn But at the same time, he managed to keep them all magical all the same Again, a must read The whole series is a must read

    11. Karen on said:

      This is the third book in a row I ve read in this series and they are amazing His research is fantastic as is his writing I m going to read everything by this author.

    12. Joe Rohaly on said:

      If ever there was a story of immigration The Eagles Brood in the Camulod Chronicles series of books I am currently reading describes it in detail The era was 300 500 A.D and the story takes place in what is now known as England In those years the land belonged to the Roman Empire As all empires go, the politicians got greedy and the tax money lined their pockets instead of paying their armies to keep law, and order in the territories Reading about the society of that era is much like reading abo [...]

    13. Helena R-D on said:

      I was tired of the fantastical tales of Arthur and decided to try the realistic take on the tale and Jack Whyte doesn t disappoint I really loved Merlin s voice and the way that his voice was quite amused as he told his tale through the book Cassandra was heartbreaking and lovely at the same time and it just showed how a man can become a tale and a legend.I also liked the sympathetic take on Uther, since we don t get to see that very often.

    14. Dean on said:

      I am not a fan of fantasy and never been a big fan of King Arthur however this series is so realistic, if there were a King Arthur then this series is about as close to realism as you will getI have become a huge fan of Jack Whyte, I have read all his books This book series is no different than the others Always he has great characters and lots of action The historical events are always well researched.

    15. Megan on said:

      3.5 I liked all the individual parts, but looking back on the book as a whole, I can barely say what it was about, or how it moved along the greater story of the series Merlyn grows up and Uther grows up and they have experiences but what does it mean Other parts of the book were obviously meant to be important, but then they were very suddenly over and I felt I must be missing something I ll continue the series, though I m still liking this post Rome Britain development.

    16. Mandy on said:

      I m enjoying this book series, but this one had a lot fighting and descriptions of battle, which isn t my favorite, but the story is so well done and I m enjoying the way it is told that I can hardly wait for the next chapter.

      Entertaining, Enthralling I am truly enjoying this series I read totally for entertainment and the series does not disappoint I can t wait to start the next book.

      The Eagle s Brood is book three of the Camulod Chronicles and the story continues in great style.This book revolves around the eagle s offspring Caius Merlyn Britannicus grandson of Caius and Uther Pendragon grandson of Publius , both born at the same time on the same day and as close as brothers.Merlyn is a scholar and a thinker as well as a soldier Brought up in Camulod his childhood is greatly influenced by Caius, Publius and Luceiia, and as he grows older, by his father Picus.Uther is much w [...]

      This is actually the same book as The Eagles Brood, book 3 of Camulod Chronicles.

      Concluso il libro 3 8.Con questo terzo romanzo della serie de Le Cronache di Camelot, si inizia a intravedere lo scorcio della leggenda I primi due romanzi avevano timidamente aperto la strada a quella che la famosa leggenda del ciclo arturiano per come si conosce, sebbene con le relative trasformazioni dovute a una trasposizione letteraria della leggenda in una versione dal taglio pi storico per questo motivo che Merlino, protagonista e narratore in prima persona delle vicende, sminuisce la sua [...]

    22. Gary on said:

      I was first introduced to the tales of King Arthur, whose realm is made magical by the intriguing wizard Merlin at six or seven And in my teens I was very much impressed by the 1981 John Boorman movie Excalibur starring Helen Mirren, Nigel Terry and Nicol Williamson, starring a rather sinister and hard to like Merlin Later I saw the sympathetic Merlin in the highly engaging 1998 TV series Merlin starring Sam Neil Have read Queen of Camelot by Nancy McKenzie which I loved and its sequels The med [...]

    23. Jason Munson on said:

      This author is quickly becoming another favorite of mine I love this series so far and look forward to getting into the fourth book I did not see the end coming in the second book, did not see the end coming in the third book and was sadden by the event that took place in this book To me, as a reader, that is bordering on the line of greatness as an author I am still not wanting however to give this book five stars becasue to me, that is left for great books and I think that early books in the s [...]

    24. Rusty on said:

      Book 1, Hatchlings, and Book 2, Fledglings, were about the childhood and youth of two friends Caius who will become known as Merlin or Cais Merlin and Uther In addition, their uncle tells Caius about the making of Excalibur His uncle fashioned Excalibur using a little known process to make it Caius is told that he will become the keeper of the sword when his uncle dies.Uther and Cais Merlin know each other well based on their boyhood ether Each can anticipate the actions of the other Both have l [...]

    25. Elaine on said:

      The third in the excellent Whyte Camelot series and once again, he has struck gold Although the major players are there, he focuses intently on the ordinary members of the community It s fascinating series examining the social and political foundation of Camelot, and as such is hugely speculative Yet in some repsects it reads like a factual work Am limiting myself to an aoocasional fix to make the series las as long as possible So it might be quite some time before I get around to book 4 Having [...]

    26. Shane on said:

      Having read the first two books, I was slightly unimpressed by this third one The plot endpoints were good, but getting there was somewhat droll I ve always been entertained by the building part of a story and this just wasn t a part of it It will lend a lot to the rest of the story and provided quite a bit of character reference for later as well, but there just wasn t much for world building or any major plot building aside from the very end One thing that I must give Whyte credit for, is the [...]

    27. Aaron Althuizen on said:

      Another amazing series by Jack Whyte If you enjoy being immersed into the story, these tales will certainly provide you with the right tools.From The novels are a rendition of the Arthurian legend that attempt to propose a possible explanation for the foundation of Camulod an alternate spelling of Camelot , Arthur s heritage and the political situation surrounding his existence The setting series begins during the Roman departure from Britain and continues for 150 years ending during the settlem [...]

    28. bkjunkie on said:

      This story like the two before it continues to introduce the background of the characters behind the camulod story This book is mostly told from the perspective of the character who becomes Merlyn It has less story and military scences which for me is where I checked out a for a bit But, at the end picks up the ongoing story and has a climatic ending leaving me wanting to immediatley pick up the Saxon Shore to see what will happen next This is why I gave it three stars If you are really into de [...]
