L.A. Wilson is an unconventional independent writer and published author, whose ten book series called 'The Silurian' will challenge everything you have ever read before about King Arthur and his knights.
L.A. is dedicated to bringing to the reader a whole new world of authoring original works. The Silurian series, standing at well over a million words, and still counting, has opened the door to new interpretations within the Arthurian genre, that is, a writer of imagination, able to create characters who stand alone within genre fiction writing.
Having studied the craft of writing in action, actually committing to 'on the job learning', L.A. has been crafting The Silurian books now for ten years, with an apprenticeship in creative writing extending long before that: from midnight-dark vampires, to a golden lost boy of a speculative world, to a mysterious place within the Universe and its Master creator, to early and extensively studied writing arts, L.A. Wilson produces unique books coming from a unique point of view: that of the iconoclast, ever seeking to break the mold of mass produced and formulaic novel construction.
Note about the new book numbering:
All of The Silurian books have now been compacted into 7 books, with book 8 - Last Man to Avalon - still a work in progress.
The books series is still the same, and all the books are still in sequence: the old book 2, "King of Battles" is now Part Two of Book 1.
The old book 4, "Hunters and Killers", is now Part Two of "Arthur's Army"
And old book 7, "The Blacksmith's Hammer" is now the opening to "Facing the Bear."
No books have been cut or lost or removed from the The Silurian series.

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.

I was a fool not to prepare my heart before reading this book. The battles were so powerful, so exhilarating. I could feel Arthur's power and supremacy. There was this time when my friend had to slap me to get my attention because I couldn't get my eyes off the book. The love story between the fox and the bear showed me that there's so much more to learn when it comes to love. It left me hungry for more. This series gives a high level of realism and the emotions are so true. I admire L.A. Wilson for creating such amazing books. 10 stars for this.
