Quirky characters make it a fun read, but there's nothing particularly memorable about it. Dec 6 2012
By Nicole - Published on
Format: Paperback
I love Arthurian based stories. King Arthur and Guinevere are one of my favorite couples in history - well, until Lancelot comes in; Merlin is freaking amazing; Morgan le Fay is my favorite villainess ever; The Lady of the Lake is my favorite mystery lady.

Needless to say, when this was offered, it didn't take me too long to agree to review it.

I thought, for the concept that was being used, it was very well done indeed. I'm never going to be a fan of evil Merlin. I love Merlin far too much. But I thought Willett did an excellent job here - it's not that Merlin is evil so much as stuck in at time that's not his own, with an idea that he doesn't consider evil.

It just kind of happens to be.

I like Ariana - she's got quite a bit of personality and spunk, and I like that. I wish she didn't get a hold of her powers quite so fast, but hey, she was pressed for time. Wally is definitley my favorite character. He's got a bit of King Arthur potential, but he's so very quirky. He fences. I like him. And I sense his sister becoming a bit of a Morgan le Fay character, which should prove to be entertaining.

All in all, it was very well executed - nothing compared to some of the other Arthurian novels I've read, but hey, it makes a fun read.
Very interesting and engaging fantasy Nov. 26 2012
By Casandra Perry - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a great YA level fantasy novel using the legend of Excalibur in a new and exciting way. Mordred is alive, has been alive, and is up to NO GOOD. The Lady of the Lake has been unable to prevent Mordred's evil from taking hold because she is unable to come over to the "real" world. It is up to her descendants to learn to use their powers as water spirits to thwart Mordred's plan to reunite the shards of Excalibur and thus take over the world.
The characters in this interesting adaptation of the Camelot mythos are very real and sympathetic. Though set in Canada, the young man and woman caught up in the events of this story could have come from anywhere in any modern country. The backgound of each character is unique and interesting, and is only revealed in glimpses of each person's past. The author keeps the reader engaged by revealing details that make the characters more human (while making them more un-human at the same time!) This young lady and gentleman have very real problems that tweens, teens, and young adults can understand and sympathize with, and oh, they're supposed to save the world, too. No pressure!
There is no sex and I don't remember any cursing in this novel. The material is high fantasy with faerie and human worlds intertwined. My verdict is: Read it! and then, read it again! I plan to!
Recommended for any reader, probably 8 and up can understand completely.
