Knight of Darkness (Lords of Avalon, Bk 2)
Knight of Darkness - Lords of Avalon, Bk 2 Author:Kinley MacGregor Second in the Lords of Avalon series, this is a new twist on the Arthurian legend where you just have to love the "bad" guy! — Varian has known almost nothing but hatred and being despised by those who should have protected him and from birth he has carried the seeds of good and evil at war within him. Which seed will grow and choke out the other... more ». Enter a new kind of Camelot and Avalon--you won't want to leave.« less
Liked it as much as "Sword of Darkness," book one. Storyline is a mix of Arthur's tales, his knights, his magic, and a lot of humor thrown in. MacGregor definitely has a passion for Arthurian legend. Characters are memorable and unique, and very funny. Worth spending the credit. The sex is a bit more detailed than in book 1, but the story has enough foundation to back it up.

This is a great example of Kinley MacGregor/Sherilyn Kenyon's mix of action, romance, fantasy and humor. This is another installment that takes place after the fall of Camelot into the evil Morgen's hands. If you love Monty Python quotes and other silliness, you will thoroughly enjoy this time with the main character, Varian duFey!
Kinley McGregor a.k.a. Sherrilyn Kenyon has a winner in her Lords Of Avalon series. Her sense of humor interwoven with a dark Camelot and the worlds protectors, who are remnants of the Round Table, spin a great story. I read this in a few hours and was ready for another!
I went into to this book with the same lame idea it was going to be just another stupid romance (i really don't care much for lame romance) BUT this one isn't your typical book. The title caught my eye, "Knights of Darkness" and I was hopeing that it would have something to do with the "Merlin/Arthor" time line. I was not dissappointed at all! It was a WONDERFULL BOOK! A great plot with lots of wonderful charictures, good background into the Knights of the round table time line. You will find only two sexually related parts (both very mild) and not until close to the end. The rest is a lot of action, good laughs, hateing the bad guys, and wanting to know if there are other's in this series. :)
This is the second story in a new series by Sherrilyn Kenyon under the pen name of Kinley McGregor.. Kenyon delivers a great tale in this book just as she does previously with her Dark Hunter series.. if you are a fan of Kenyon, this is a must read.. for lovers of fantasy with a Knights of the Round Table twist
Interesting take on the Arthurian legend. A "dark" knight risks all to return to Camelot to avenge the death of a grail knight. He becomes involved with a servant and his true colors shine. Who could resist a book with references to Monty Python and Spamalot? Oh and the "pet" rock is a hoot! 3.5 stars
I loved the imagery! Quite the imagination. The forest that the characters get trapped in is a little "Princess Bride" like with it's "Pit of Despair", etc. The banter between the characters is also pretty amusing, with quotes from Monty Python's Holy Grail and "Spamalot".
