Sword of Darkness

Sword of Darkness by Kinley MacGregor (Lords of Avalon Book 1)

What was this book about?
Peasant girl Seren is approached by two knights who inform her that she is to be the next “Mother of a Merlin” and that they need to guard her. This startling (and unbelievable) revolution, only scares her into the arms of Kerrigan. Kerrigan has made the decision to participate on the side of evil for many years and is King to Morgen’s Queen of Camelot. Nevertheless Seren’s refreshing ability to make him remember his human days can’t help but affect him. Can Seren help save him?

What was your favorite part about this book?

I really enjoyed the story of Camelot, Merlin, and Morgen. It is really an interesting take on the whole Lancelot, Guinevere, King Arthur story that we have all heard a million times.

What was your least favorite part about this book?

If you are looking for a happy fest where good overcomes evil and banishes it to the far ends of the earth you will not enjoy this book. But even though I am a happily ever after kinda person it didn’t take too much away from this story.

What genre would you consider this?

Overall: B, I am interested in seeing where this story ends up. More of the Lords of Avalon should shed some light on things.
