The Camulod Chronicles

The Camulod Chronicles are a series of nine book by Jack Whyte. These stories 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 settlement of Britain by the Germanic Angles, Saxons and Jutes. (from wiki)

This series was recommended by my brother and I've heard nothing but great things about it from him. "It was interesting seeing the Arthurian legend in a more 'realistic' light...I enjoyed how Jack Whyte tied in historical events and characters in with the story to show a basis for the legend." -Ben (my brother)
