At the end of Chapter One, the characters begin to interact and it becomes a fascinating story with intrigue that begs to be explained. This was the compelling device that beckoned to me and drew me along with it until I commenced to feel as though I were part of the story. There is a mysterious elder man who appears in a passionate tirade and then inexplicably disappears. I loved that bit, and even more so once he appears again. Further, in the writers explanation of the musings of the main character, the introduction of the theory of genetic memory is a subject that is completely believable and fascinating. Later, the past comes to life in a dream as a descendant of King Arthur becomes fully immersed in the telling's of Merlin.
At a certain point, I began to see a new and refreshing story unfolding. A story that I had never read of the many that illuminated the times of King Arthur. We see that beloved king through a prism that portrays him as more of a man with human qualities. He has his failings, his relationships are strewn with problems stemming from his inability to be loving to those closest to him. Even his professed love of Britain is shadowed by his resentment of those who try to tell him how to live his life which cost him so much.
By altering the roles some of the characters play in contrast to the original story, as it is commonly depicted, the author weaves an unknown progress through the tale. Characters familiar to us in a certain role now come to us in an opposite guise. It is a new and refreshing view that creates a story the author reveals which carries us further into the realm of the future of the king so many believe will come to pass.This proves that when King Arthur and his promise is revealed in the final pages of the novel, that these are the standards all should aspire to achieve. It is a beautiful ending full of grace and compassion.
In this story, again and again the author puts his characters in impossible situations that look like moral dead-ends, and then he spins the resolution you never saw coming. The pacing of this story never lets up. I was always looking for a few more minutes to get back to the story and find out what was coming next. In both the 20th century chapters and the Arthurian time period, the plot charges full-steam ahead.
The religious and moral values of the story are unique and engaging. I read a lot of Christian fiction, and keep an open mind for novels that stray "outside the box" yet do not offend my core values. This novel is one I heartily endorse for committed Christians who are open to a new flavor for their fiction pallet. Keep in mind that characters in this story, as well as in many Christian titles, have moments of indiscretion where they stray from the standards they have embraced, and then suffer remorse. That is the reason why this story is "Adult" fantasy and not "Young Adult" fantasy. However, in this story as in life, resolutions must be found, a way to return to "grace", and the author does not disappoint.
Another aspect of this story that I fully appreciate is the lack of offensive language. I am always cautious about the possibility of wretched curse words appearing in non-Christian fiction, but you won't find them here. The author has respected his readers too much to offend them in this manner.
I would be remiss if I did not mention the wealth of knowledge this author has brought to his story. Tichelaar has spent decades studying and writing about the Arthurian Legends in both fiction and non-fiction formats, but he has waited until now to release his fictional version. No one else could have written this story with such depth of knowledge and such freshness in characters and plot.
So if you are not a fantasy reader and wonder what you are missing, try this title! If you are already reading fantasy fiction, here is a new twist on ancient legends that fully engages your imagination!
If you love the mystical magic of Camelot but thrive on the excitement and tribulations of Game of Thrones, this book is for you. Tichelaar encompasses the familiarity of contemporary times and skillfully interweaves history and mysticism into the Arthurian legend that has withstood the test of time, and brings the characters all to life.
This story is so full of twists, turns, and delightful surprises, it will keep you up late at night turning the pages. Tichelaar writes in a style that is easy to read, yet incorporates a philosophy that will have you pondering this tale for days. It offers a great message and demonstrates how our lives are all interwoven and connected by threads that rival the strength of a spider's illustrious web.
