Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Young Arthur, rebooted in our era from the DNA of his original parents, takes leaps toward his royal destiny in this second episode of the Otherworld Chronicles. Here, he has 10 days to track down seven legendary swords (with help from an iPad app crafted by the ageless Merlin) and to spring two captives in the magical Otherworld from the overdecorated castle of evil sorceress Morgaine. Readers unfamiliar with the series opener will struggle to make sense of some characters and situations, but unlike many middle volumes, the central story line in this fast-moving, not always earnest epic makes significant advances. Grades 5-8. --John Peters

Review

“A wild mix of Arthurian tales and a 21st century world. Real excitement and horror await readers in this new take on classic Arthurian lore.” (Kirkus Reviews)

It's a good continuation of the previous story and great fun to read, especially for kids (or grown ups that are still kids).

My 8 year old reads this series over and over. This story of Merlin has captured his imagination and he continues to go back to live it over and over.

Otherworld Chronicles: Book 2 The Seven Swords by Nils Johnson-Shelton. Across Both Worlds Are Seven Legendary Blades. Some Have Been Uncovered, Some Forgotten, Others Secreted Away. Very Soon All Must Be United. I totally recommend this book because the author has made it full of action, terror, and surprises that will keep others on the edge of their seats like it did to me.

Artie and Kay Kingfisher must go to the Otherworld so save their missing friend Qwon Onakea and both their world and the Otherworld from total destruction. The only way to save both worlds and their friends is for Artie to claim his throne as King Arthur reborn. To do this, Artie must gather his knights so they can venture across and between the globe and the Otherworld to find and recover the Seven Swords. And finding all of them is Artie's only hope for victory. But some big surprises await them and all the video games in the world couldn't have prepared Artie and his knights for the battles against giants, dragons, ogres, and a sorceress. Nor is he ready for the unexpected threat of the Peace Sword, one of the seven swords and also a mysterious weapon used by the treacherous Mordred to kill the original King Arthur more than a thousand years ago.

The author made each character very unique in their own way like Lance is very good with a bow and is good at modifying arrows. Also the author made sure that not just one, two, or three characters got the swords but that seven different unique characters got each one.

While I was reading through this book I noticed that the author sets the tone throughout the entire book. Some parts were funny like when Erik tells a story on how he used to be a dragon slayer…kind of.

A lot of times I read the middle book of a trilogy and it is just filler. That is not the case with this book. There was more action and the author expanded on the characters more. I enjoyed reading the author's take on old characters, and I liked that Artie has his round table members ready to go. I did not like the end and it was too much of a cliff hanger for me. However since I had the final book ready to go it did not damage the characters or plot. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.

The Seven Swords is a fun follow-up to The Invisible Tower. Artie and his knights are looking for seven swords so they can reach Avalon and Artie can become King.

The Good

Artie is a teenager that loves video games who found out in the first book that he is the reincarnation of King Arthur. His sister Kay is one of his knights as well as a group of other friends they made in the first book.

I really enjoyed the parts with Qwon where she was being held by Dred along with the fairy Shallot. The fairies in this story expel scents that have different effects on their victims. Shallot has an incredibly sweet scent that renders people stupified. Dred appears to have a crush on Qwon so he doesn't make the best kidnapper. Given that he's doing it at his mother's insistence doesn't really help matters either.

Dred's mother is the evil witch Morgaine. She is their nemesis and is trying to have Qwon killed so she can get Artie there and retrieve his swords. I love Dred's growth in this book as he goes from just doing what he is told in the beginning to really questioning morals and who he should be by the end.

Artie, Kay, and the group are still a lot of fun and the action starts early in the book. Johnson-Shelton is great at making me laugh aloud while reading. Also, there is a mysteriousness surrounding Merlin that adds layers to an already known character which I really enjoyed.

I also loved the chapter titles which normally I do not even pay attention to! A couple of examples include: Chapter 1 In Which Qwon Thinks She is in Canada and Chapter 13 Concerning a Bunch of Stuff Including a Surprise for Kynder.

The Bad

I wasn't really a fan of how this one ended.
