REVIEWS
PRAISE FOR LAVIE TIDHAR:

'As eclectic as the Sword in the Stone and as ruthless as A Game of Thrones, this retelling of the whole Arthurian legend stands alongside the very best' Daily Mail.

'A bloody, bravura performance, which Tidhar pulls off with graphic imagery and modern vernacular' Guardian.

'You can always trust Lavie Tidhar to create something brilliant, savage and endlessly entertaining' Starburst.

'By Force Alone eviscerates the complacent posturing of the Arthurian myth, explodes the well-worn conventions of the tale and from the shiny jagged pieces assembles a wholly fresh rollercoaster ride of cheap violence, vicious magic and messy human truth ... You'll never look at a wizard the same way again' Richard Morgan.

'A twisted Arthur retelling mixing the historical and the magical with a very modern eye. Brutal and vicious, funny, Peaky Blinders of the Round Table' Adrian Tchaikovsky.
