This book is a great combination of the stories of King Arthur, the bloodline of Odysseus, and of the great writers, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.
The plot is a little more complicated than in previous novels, and may take some rereading to understand fully, but overall it is just as good as its companions in the series. (Though the talking badgers, I think, are a bit much.)
