Editorial Reviews

Review

“High-spirited and fun. Gives new life to Arthurian legends and may just send readers back to more traditional tellings.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Short, action-packed chapters and funny dialogue make this book a surefire hit with the legions of Rick Riordan fans.” (School Library Journal)

“An entertaining quest fantasy, sprinkled with hints of hidden agendas, and juiced with enough creativity to carry readers happily into future episodes.” (Booklist)

“The draw here is the action, and there is plenty of that. As Artie dodges fire spells and enchanted swords, gamers will find themselves reaching for their controllers while they await the series’ next installment.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“Fresh and fun, with plenty to offer the avid reader looking for a new series.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

The answers are not what he ever expected to find and actually, they're quite hard to really believe.

If you are looking for an imaginative story for you child around the age of 9 or 10, this is a great book to start with. I wish I would have read a story like this at that age. It has so many adventures and such neat characters that you'll love them all. The story begins with this boy named Arthur but they called him Artie. He loves playing video games and he's great at them, but not better than his sister Kay. She's a genius when it comes to video games and competes in them too. They both live with their single father, Kynder who is as sweet as can be, but does not allow them to drink to many soda pops.

One day when Artie, finally defeats a very difficult level that not even his sister could beat, he's very surprised to see a secret message in the game addressed to him specifically. He believes it to be a coincidence. They are preparing for his sisters tournament and leave to the hotel where they will be staying at. Once at the hotel, Artie begins to unpack the gaming system so that his sister can practice once she returns from registering with their dad. But when Artie can't find her "special" remote control, he just thinks that she took it with her. When Kay returns to the hotel and realizes that her control was left behind at her house, shes begins to panic. But Artie has a solution for his sister and what he does not know is that it will be the beginning of his new life. He will discover something about himself and his family that he never knew, and it will be the adventure of a lifetime.

Although, this book is not my style, I gave it a chance anyway and I am glad I did, because it's such an adorable book filled with imagination, adventure, and lovable characters. It is very well described, written and understandable for that age group.I highly recommend this book to all children, they will love it ! - Jenny

I picked up this book expecting it to be another poorly written clone of Harry Potter but was pleasantly surprised to find it compelling, well written and accessible to children of all ages. The story follows the popular format of a child who doesn't know of their power and destiny, but discovers it when thrust into the adventures they were born to have. In this case the boy is heir to King Arthur's throne and Excalibur, told in the modern day complete with video games, cell phones and references to pop culture. Our kids easily identify with the main characters.

I also need to say how much I enjoy the author's use of language. Using mostly simple words that my grade school nephew can easily read, he creates beautiful prose worthy of the greatest authors of our time.

"...the weapons met again in a song of steel. The sound spoke volumes to young King Artie, as if he'd been waiting to hear these notes of metal on metal his whole life."

So cool. Your kids will love it just as mine do.

Im always looking for books to read my son that i will enjoy as well (he is 6). I enjoy the Harry Potter Books but they are to dark for his age (parents die in the beginning of the book less reading and more explaining the meaning of life). I love the King Arthur stories so this was perfect. Its a really fun and a cleaver take on the familiar story. My son asks "One more Chapter ppppllease." a sign of a good book as far as I'm concerned.

If you're looking for a light-hearted fantasy adventure, look no further. Nils Johnson-Shelton brings to life a fun story of two contemporary tweens who find themselves pulled into an adventure to save the world the know and the world that they just discovered.

Arthur "Artie" Kingfisher was adopted by his family when he was just a baby. Until recently he's never really questioned where he came from, but after a not-so-chance meeting with Merlin, he's curious. The answers are not what he ever expected to find and actually, they're quite hard to really believe. He's King Arthur? As he and his sister and knight, Kay, embark on a series of adventures to save the worlds, they'll have to face dragons, elves, witches, and any number of magical beings to free Merlin in hopes of saving the world.

Artie and Kay were really fun characters to get to know. I really liked that they had a great family dynamic with their father, Kynder, and with each other. Their personalities were also quite complimentary--when Artie was nervous, Kay was strong and vice versa. As Artie learned more about who he was and Excalibur showed him new things, he came into his own (whereas at the beginning, Kay was clearly the dominant one).

Overall, I felt like this was a good fantasy adventure for young readers, probably between ages 9-10. While I personally didn't enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed some other MG fantasy novels, I felt like it had good pacing and a fun, adventurous storyline that will offer young fantasy readers something to enjoy. Slightly older MG readers may find that the dialogue and storyline is a tad simplistic and the non-ending is a bit unsatisfying. I walked away feeling like the cliffhanger ending was unnecessary and they never resolved the one thing that they really set out on the quest to do--save the world.

Fans of the Percy Jackson series,the Kane Chronicles, and any other spinoff on classic myths will devour this book! It pairs the classic story of King Arthur with the 21st century, making a boy the center of a "King Arthur lives once again." type story. But it's more than the classic King Arthur reincarnation story. Filled with plot twists and cliffhangers that will leave you wanting more,this book is a nice coming of age story incorporated with a King Arthur story (with a twist or two,)
