After posing with a rusty sword for a photo in a British graveyard, Britt Arthurs is pulled through time all the way back to the age of King Arthur where the shockingly young and handsome Merlin is waiting for her. The wizard has some bad news: the real Arthur has run off with a shepherdess, and whoever pulls the sword from the stone is to become the King of England. Unfortunately for Britt, the sword slides out like butter when she pulls it after fighting with Merlin. Long Live King Arthurs!
Ah, this is quite a different take on the Arthur story. Now personally, I have never read the original King Arthur. I should but I haven’t. I do know some of the important stuff. That Arthur pulled a sword from the stone, his sword was Excalibur, he had a romance with Guinevere who then was with Lancelot. He also had a round table and his knights were chivalrous.
I like a female Arthur. It makes it interesting. At first, though, the story was slow and I didn’t really care for Britt. Also, I like a younger Merlin. I wonder if there will be a romance between Sir Kay and Britt. It seems Kay is a bit smitten with her.
Anyway on to the second book.
