The Dragon and the Unicorn
A queen, a pilgrim, a demon -- and a king with a world to save
Beneath every beloved legend there is a deeper legend still, etched in ancient stone. The Dragon and the Unicorn begins before the beginning of Time, as light first cools to matter, bearing within it the electron glow of lost Heaven. Attanasio's epic tale of a quest for immortality spans all history, human and demihuman, from the dung fires on the steppes to the snows of Himalayas, from the mudhut cities on the Euphrates to the glass and steel towers of tomorrow, from the hunt for the Unicorn's horn to the ceaseless wars of elf and dragon, Celt and Roman. It is a quest that end -- and begins -- in a legend-heavy place at the edge of the Western Sea, with the first cry of a King new born. A place called Tint gel. A King, the Heir Pendragon, called Eagle of Thor, or…Arthor.
One of today's boldest, most imaginative, and most inventive authors, A. A. Attanasio unites all the legends of creation and redemption into a dream song as old as the druid chants, and as timeless as the quantum hum at creation's shinning heart.
And so a new departure in epic fantasy takes flight.

Ask always is difficult to me to do a review with out spoilers. I think this is a history that all already now. But now the history is told from the perspective of the characters knowing his feelings and thoughts. Very long to my taste but great. Read full review

I LOVED this book. I thought it had great insights into how you live your life, and how life in general is. Of course, I liked it best for the Arthurian legend part, but it was really rather philosophical at the same time. Read full review
