The Lance Thrower

I got a copy of the Jack Whyte’s The Lance Thrower from Amazon some time ago. It was very hard for my relatives to find that on my Xmas book list. It was, I thought, the continuation of the book Clothar the Frank from Whyte’s Arthurian series.

I started reading it, and thought…. gee he’s really recapping a lot. As I read more, I realized that someone he was saying it all again. Only maybe with fewer words.

Well, today I learnt the truth.

The Lance Thrower is the US edition. Clothar the Frank is the Canadian (maybe world) title, and is definitely a longer book. That also explains why the book was so hard to find.

So, I guess I’m still waiting for the next installment in the series that started as The Skystone.
