Ruins of Camelot Paperback – November 21, 2011
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

About the Author
George Norman Lippert made a name for himself by writing fan fiction. His first book, “James Potter and the Hall of Elders’ Crossing”, was written in a bout of Post-Potter Depression after the release of the final Harry Potter book. Released online, JPHEC garnered a surprisingly large worldwide readership and attracted the attention of both Warner Bros. and J. K. Rowling (this when both parties were asked by the media if they were secretly responsible for it.) The following sequels, “Gatekeepers Curse” and “Vault of Destinies”, were well-received and well-reviewed enough, earning well over a million total readers worldwide, that the author decided to try his hand at writing something entirely original. “The Riverhouse,” a historical ghost story, reached number two on the amazon best-sellers list. “Ruins of Camelot” is the hopeful beginning of a new fantasy series, which will soon continue with the adventures of Gabriella’s progeny as they face the scattered remnants of the vampyre army that haunt their world. For now, however, Lippert has promised a new James Potter sequel, tentatively titled “James Potter and the Morrigan Web”. George Norman Lippert currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri with his wife and two children.

The summary says enough about the plot that I'm not going to add anything in case I spoil something, so all I'll say is that it's a fast paced, intense, magic filled, adventurous read. I loved how it was being told from 2 separate generations and how they collide. It was really well written and described and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The characters were all well written and developed but my favourite was Gabriella. She was such a great role model. She was brave, loyal, impulsive but also kick ass and not afraid to do what is right.
In all, this is a really great read. It has everything a good book should and I look forward to more from this author.
Jus Sargeant did a good job with the narration. There was enough different tones for each character that I had no problem following who was talking.
*I received this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*
I read this on my Kindle and at times would have prefered to quickly flip back to reread a section. The story was well written.
