What makes this story fascinating is that the reader is learning about the modern day characters’ relationships to Arthur and Avalon as Anne and Adam do. And while the legendary Roland opens the story, his lineage is revealed through stories told by his father, his grandfather, and his grandmother. As each tale ends, the reader is compelled to turn the page to discover what secrets are revealed next.
However gripping each tale is, it is the final paragraph that will grab readers and have them waiting with eager anticipation for the next book Ogier’s Prayer. Tyler includes a peek at Ogier’s Prayer, but I have to confess: I did not read this. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to, but because I knew it wouldn’t be enough!
As a recent visitor to Great Britain and Avalon, I loved reading Melusine’s story of growing up in Avalon. I walked among the very apple trees she talks about and climbed the same hill—Glastonbury Tor—she did to see the whole of Britain. In fact, this was probably my favorite part.
For me, Tyler’s Arthurian stories always do two things—remind me of how much of Arthurian legend I still have to learn and how much I learn from his stories. For lovers of Arthurian lore, I can’t recommend this series enough.
I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I loved "Melusine’s Gift" even more than "Arthur’s Legacy," probably because while I know a fair amount about the stories of King Arthur and Camelot, I had never heard about Melusine before. It was fun being introduced to a completely new myth. Of course, I also liked the continuation of Adam and Anne's story as well.
Something I really liked about this book was that there were several places where I found myself relating to the characters. One instance I can remember was when one of the characters is climbing a steep mountain, and when he finally gets to the top, completely out of breath, he finds that Merlin, the old wizard, hasn't even broken a sweat. As I read that, I suddenly got flashbacks to doing exercise videos where I feel like I'm going to keel over while the trainer on the video is jumping around all happy and not panting or sweating. I could really relate to the character in that moment--a 21st century woman relating to a fictional, medieval man. That's what's so great about Tichelaar's characters. He finds a way to slip in humor and relateable moments no matter the character or time period.
I can’t wait for the twists and turns of "Ogier’s Prayer,” the third book in the series.
