Sequel to Knight Life. Further adventures of King Arthur and his crew in present day. Very clever premise. Light, but fun read.
Arthur Pendragon, aka Arthur Penn, continues his illustrious modern political career, moving from mayor of New York to president of the U.S. A man of the people and wildly popular, he takes to the presidency like a duck to water, though it is far more challenging than kingship was in days of old. For one thing, Arthur's friend and mentor Merlin has been turned into a stone statue gracing the White House gardens but leaving Arthur to bear the weight of leadership alone. He is still reasonably happy, but then an assassin's bullet puts his beloved wife, Gwen, in a hospital bed, near death. One night as Arthur keeps vigil at her bedside, an old, deadly enemy comes to him with an offer and a choice. Either way he chooses, he will lose something dear to him. David's latest is a fabulous tale of ancient gods, mythical beasts, and the Holy Grail in contemporary America. Laced with intelligent humor, it is simply enchanting. Paula Luedtke

I love arthuran legend and these books were just a kick in the pants. I really enjoyed them and Peter David became one of my favorite authors. I finished this book in two days.
the book was ok but not nearly as good as the first in the series, in my opinion.
