Popular Ebook A Coalition of Lions I gave this book and The Winter Prince which comes before it four stars as they just were not five star reads for me - but the books together and my interest in reading the next ones are reaching toward a five star series. I can not really put my finger on just what draws me in to them as the writing is different than anything else I have read. The relationship between Medraut and his half brother Lleu is one burned into my brain and when a book does that, it's great writing. But that is the previous book, and this one begins six years after Medraut returned to England from Aksum Ethiopia which is when the previous book began.A Coalition of Lions is told by Goewin, twin sister of Lleu, and begins after Artos' kingdom of Camlam is destroyed and the King is dead. From the book: "Camlan shattered Medraut. He began the battle: he drew his sword to kill an adder at my father's heel, and the host mustered by Cynric of the West Saxons fell on our own soldiers at the flash of light on metal." Lleu is dead and Medraut has disappeared after terrible injuries and presumed to have died. Goewin is Princess of Britain but a woman can not rule, so she makes the decision to go to Aksum where her bethrothed and her father's chosen heir Constantine holds a position of power. She goes to hand him the crown of Britain and to get him to return to ensure the safety of their people.When Goewin gets to Ethiopia she finds that her brother Medraud has a six year old son who he never knew existed. The child has Medraud's snow white hair and is called Telemakos. The child will play a large part in the rest of the book and is wise beyond his years. I am not going to tell the story here but it is a tale of intrigue, discovery of things from the past, the relationship between Goewin and Constantine and between her and Priamos who traveled with her from Britain. Priamos is a prince in this country but only by blood and has been serving as an ambassador to Britain and as the Aksumite imperial translator. The ensuing story involving these people was one that started out a little slow for me, but at about 100 pages it turned into one I could not put down. That is nearly half of the book, but the story and characters were worth a bit of a slow start as I got deeper and deeper into this book - and series. I found this a wonderful explanation of the name of the book. It is wound throughout the story:"Male lions form lifelong allegiances. Not with their mates, but with one another. They may leave a pride, they may leave their lionesses and cubs, or a rival coalition may send them off. But an allied group of males stays together, and hunts together, and fights together. Coalition lions will defend their comrades to the death."I have already bought the third book. These books are not easy to find, and I got this one on abe books as well as the third one, The Sunbird.These books are a take on the Arthur legend with Medraut loosely representing Mordred, and I enjoyed reading the author's notes at the end which show how much she studied the illusive often unwritten history of so many centuries ago. Good reads if you like history, good writing, the Arthur legend (but don't demand it always be the same), and really memorable characters.
