Interesting and Surprising Concept.
, May 8, 2015
This review is from: The Secret of Excalibur (Kindle Edition)
Such a new and interesting concept! Sci-fi is
taking over my life at the moment and this one was no slouch in grabbing
my immediate interest.
I loved that this book was set in England
in the Institute of Psychic Research in London, but amidst all the
tales surrounding the Artharian and Excalibur legends. The descriptions
of Arthur Merlin's adventures are sometimes written in an almost comic
book style with sound effects of his frequent telekinesis feats and
teleportations adding drama and action to this well paced Sci-fi book.
descriptions are well thought out, bringing you right into the action.
There are some funny moments, romantic moments and even tear jerking
moments as Arthur and Ruth tear about the countryside avoiding CIA and
MI6 agents who need them for information and research. Authur mezmerises
everyone from Ruth's ex lover to a butch pub brawler demanding displays
of magic while on their journey to discover the implications of
Arthur's multiple powers. (He has some that he uses for wildly naughty
and raunchy episodes during his journey to Excalibur)
Ruth has an
agenda all her own, but finding out that the incredible events in her
own past are intertwined with Arthur's own makes for a fabulously
exciting read. The final few pages and the discovery of Arthur's true
calling are incredible (if a bit bloody in places)
Thoroughly enjoyed this very different book. It will keep you interested and intrigued right up until the end. Highly recommend!
