Must Read : 'Looking For The King: An Inklings Novel'



With winter fast approaching, nothing better then a good by by the fire in the evening. Here is my 'must read' for this month , a brand new novel by Dr. David C. Downing, pubblished by Ignatius Press. 'Looking For The King- An Inklings Novel' is set in Oxford in the 1940s, where two young Americans, Tom and Laura, are researching the historical evidence for the legendary King Arthur. They are helped by of the most prolific members of the Inklings, the illustrious circle of scholars, C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. Hunted by dark mysterious figures, and trying to unravel Laura's dreams in the search for the truth, along the way they will make a great discovery that will change their lives forever. This an incredibly gripping novel which gives an interesting insight into Lewis and Tolkien's personalities and ideas, as well as lots of action in the search for King Arthur. Fans of Middle-earth ,Narnia , and Camelot will simply love this book. A 'must read' ! 10/10 :)
