The Last Pendragon Reviews:

“The Last Pendragon, (Walker) is ‘a persuasive reinvention of the Arthurian legend…. Rice is an accomplished storyteller and scene setter, but what gives the story greater heft is his concern, albeit low-keyed, for more transcendental themes in a world as much physically as spiritually under threat. An absorbing whirl of a read.’” – Kirkus Reviews

“A fine storyteller, Rice employs the right magic touches in this winningtale of heroism, glory and romance.” – Publishers Weekly

“Rice’s story is more than another reenactment of the usual King Arthur legend: It takes place eleven years after Arthur’s fall and focuses on the quest of Bedwyr, who sets out to complete an unfulfilled promise to destroy Arthur’s legendary sword. The dual storyof Irion, a new young leader trying to live with his father’s treachery, makes for a spellbinding account of a Britain teetering on a new Dark Age.” – The Bookwatch

“This rousing tale of love and war and the mystical rising of the Last Pendragon will enchant readers who have never forgotten The Once and Future King.” – Omnibus

“Do we need yet another Arthurian novel after the seeming thousands of the last decade? One would think not, and yet a good book is a good book, and yes, one needs an Arthurian novel when it’s a good novel. Robert Rice’s The Last Pendragon is a good novel.” – Isaac Asimov’s Science Fiction

The Nature of Midnight Reviews:

Ranked along with Dashiell Hammett’s Red Harvest and James Lee Burke’s Black Cherry Blues as “one of the great Montana crime novels” by Booklist Online’s senior editor.

“Despite the menacing action, Rice never loses control of his characters, who balance strength and weakness with familiar authenticity. In his hands, pulsing adventure and complicated characters are wonderfully compatible.” – Boston Globe

“Author Robert Rice cleverly teases out details as the inspectors encounter more death and mayhem, learn about each other’s personal demons, try to find letters lost since 1918, and figure out what any of this has to do with the 1915 sinking of the Lusitania. Rice writes a tightly plotted and convoluted tale that is intriguing, suspenseful, gripping, and satisfying.” – The Post and Courier
