If you love romances with a fantasy twist, this is the story for you! The time of Arthur has passed and Camelot has fallen to Morgen le Fey. There is a king of Camelot, who wields the twin sword of Excalibur with relish. Our heroine is a pleasure to get to know and her true magic comes from the heart.
Get a cup of hot tea, and curl up with this wonderful book.
First book in the Lords of Avalon series. Kerrigan is the king of Camelot and assassin for the queen, Morgen. He has become the most powerful and feared man in the world and has long ceased to be human. Seren is a spirited peasant, apprenticed to a weaver and dreams of entering the guild and owning her own life. Their world's collide and their lives are forever changed...but will Kerrigan find a spark of compassion in his heart or will Seren's life be forfit in exchange for Kerrigan's dreams of complete power over the worlds of Camelot and Avalon and the world of men. This a new twist on the Arthurian legend and one that will draw you into a world of magic which you will not want to leave.
Camelot has fallen into darkness ruled by Morgan le Fey and Kerrigan. This romantic fantasy kept me reading straight through in one reading. I especially liked the feisty heroine that tamed the fearsome King of Camelot.
Well...SIIIGH..I hate to give this one up, but it would be unfair not to share this book with others..if only for the gorgeous hunk on the cover..lol. This is the first Lords of Avalon book I've read, and I am definitely on the lookout for others. It is the most interesting story of Kerrigan(mmmmmm) and his feisty captive Seren. At first you may not really even like Kerrigan, but you will find yourself, shortly, falling in love with him! A VERY EXCELLENT READ!
These books are written by Sherrilyn Kenyon. ww.sherrilynkenyon.com/series.php?id=11
The exhilarating story line contains a dark "villain" who has to choose between the redemption of love and the power of evil both very enticing. Same general plot theme ho, hum. Though the characters were well written and you come to like them all [Blaise the Mandrake] and with employing humor to enhance an overall dark plot works well.
I read the book and enjoyed it but I will not be reading any of the other in the series. Same Old, Same Old.
I didn't know what to expect from this book, it's was my first time reading Kinley MacGregor. This book turned out to be one of those books you can't put down I read it late into the evening and finished it the next day. Kerrigan is a great charactor, I loved watching him evolve thoughout the story (don't want to give to much away) and Seren (again without giving anything away) was a great heroine, she true to herself, strong and funny.
Ms. MacGregor or should I say Ms. Kenyon really know how to weave a great story around strong charactors, she keeps the story moving with action, fantasy and wonderful secondary charactors. Give this book a try if your on the fence, you won't reget it! I've already ordered the second in the series and I hope it's as fabulous as the first.
