Review by: Mary Josefina Cade on Nov. 24, 2014 :
‘Bedwyr’s Loss’, the fourth book in L.A.Wilson’s epic King Arthur series, is compulsive reading. Never more so than after the loss has occurred. These pages are awesome writing, taking us into Bedwyr’s heart and soul and deeply into his relationship with Arthur. A magical sequence in the truest sense, an alchemical union that generates healing power. For this brief time Arthur and Bedwyr are bound together in a place of love, hidden from the harsh judgemental people who force others into narrow templates, none of them Fox shaped. No wonder Bedwyr, the wild Fox, dreams of ‘that land they called Avalon, the Land of Youth, where souls joined with souls and lived forever in love.’

L.A. Wilson is a word artist, using simple phrases to create powerful emotional experiences, visions of love, the kind that float past me in dreams. ‘The Silurian’ series makes me feel that I’m present in fifth century Britain, a place of intense passion, life on the edge of death, so much loss, constant heart breaking experiences that make everything super real. Bedwyr’s words express this. ‘So many times I had stood at the graves for lost brothers. One day it would be me, and sometimes, I could not wait for that day, and then on other days, I loved life so much it burned me raw and I saw the sky like a wild washed streak of blue that touched the far beyond, where at night, adamant-stones fell to earth and everything was so real, it could only be a dream. I loved it. And hated it both.’

Bedwyr’s loss is also Arthur’s loss. Only Bedwyr jokes around with Arthur, the Imperator, the ‘ebony eyed’ High King, the heroic defender of Britain against invasion and enslavement by the Saxons. Arthur, the ‘wonder-boy’ needs the Fox as much as Bedwyr needs him. Although Bedwyr isn’t always the ideal candidate for a highly disciplined fighting force. Bedwyr just is. A force of nature. Plus the wild courage and individuality of the handsome Fox makes him heart stoppingly attractive to both men and women. Loving whoever he loves. The love making described is as intense as everything else in ‘Bedwyr’s Loss’ and a natural part of his life. Although the Romani Christians lie in wait, scaring me with their prejudice.

The agony of separation and/or the death of loved ones affects many of the characters in ‘Bedwyr’s Loss’. But still there is love. In L.A. Wilson’s books there is always love. ‘ are all I want, you are all I need. I love you...I love you to death and die I will for you...I love you.’ So beautiful, so intense.

This series of books is one of the better renditions of the Arthurian Legend I have read. If you are looking for a Camelot fairytale, look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a narrative that places you in the middle of post-Roman Briton, with convincing characters and exciting battle scenes and situations, I can highly recommend this series. I found it hard to put down once I started reading. There are currently 9 books in the series with the 10th, and final volume, due for release later this year.
