Review

I have read several adaptations of King Arthur, but The Secret of Excalibur is a fast-paced, urban fantasy by Sahara Foley. She has created a sci-fi theme that is intriguing, and the main characters - who are not afraid to speak their minds or express their feelings - narrate it. She writes very nicely and allows all her characters to participate in the drama, whether it is a big scene or a minor one. This strengthened the story, which has witty dialogue and adventure. Just when you get comfortable with the events unfolding, Sahara Foley pulls another creative twist without warnings or previous hints that divert The Secret of Excalibur onto a new route. Although the conclusion is unexpected as well, I still liked it and recommend this entertaining book. - 5 star review by Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite


If you come to think of it, Sahara Foley, author of The Secret of Excalibur, is a literary magician. It's a wonderful page turner right from the beginning: when a cocky yet endearing Arthur Merlin exhibits his superpowers, it makes us want to read more. She writes a very compelling narrative, tickling the fancy of adult readers - it almost feels like she brings back the magical air of childhood stories in The Secret of Excalibur. It's an adventure readers will not want to miss out on. The characters in this book are well defined and the main protagonist is easy to empathize with, that is, many of us would like to be transformed from an average human being into one with special abilities who can save the world. Extremely consistent with a clear theme, this book is certainly an enjoyable read! - 5 star review by Maria Beltran for Readers' Favorite

About the Author

Born and raised in Omaha Ne. I met the love of my life here and we were together for 30 years before he passed on 12-25-12. The stories that I'm publishing are his brain children. He loved writing, but never had any luck getting his stories published back in the late 1980's and early 1990's. So now, with the advent of self-publishing and him glaring over my shoulder, I'm finally able to bring his children to life for the world of readers. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. He had a wonderful but dark imagination. So much of himself and me are in these characters. As authors our recognition comes from readers and their reviews. So please leave a review, whether good or bad, when done. They will be very much appreciated. Thank you.

I'm mixed on this one, which is rare for me. My two main gripes are the spelling problems and the sheer amount of hormone dances. I don't remember if there was a disclaimer on this one, but it needs a warning for sexual content. This is why librarians read books first before reading aloud to people. The Typo Bunny also has big pointy teeth and attacked pretty savagely. I have to wonder if perhaps the wrong draft got uploaded, or if corrections that were made didn't save. As for the levels of hormones I can understand that we're supposed to pick up that something is exaggerating everything for Arthur. That was a bit much though. Yes, parts were romantic, and ok there is that scene of swimming back up that I'll admit is going to stick with me and I somewhat wish I could experience. However the amount of such escapades almost had me giving up since the line was close to going from erotica to beyond, for me. There were also places where it went a little slow for me. It is harder to thumb ahead to skip the excessively naughty bits on a kindle.

I really do not like giving such a low rating. This book isn't for everyone. It does have some good parts though. I had to actually think on this one as to where on the star chart it fell.

Now for what I DID like. I really enjoyed this modern day take on the Arthurian tale. I enjoyed the combination of the roles of Arthur and Merlin. Some of the characters were more fleshed out than others. The interplay between characters was pretty believable. The god-level amount of powers was adequately shown to have limits and drawbacks, even to the point of such actually being able to be thrown off. I have to wonder what the beer in those square cans was actually wreaking on them when drunk. I even actually felt equally for Daisy and Ruth in this.

The Secret of Excalibur is an interesting twist on the Lady of the Lake legends. Arthur Merlin, used to be an ordinary guy, until a freak accident changed his life, he ends up with powers beyond his imagination.

He can teleport anywhere he wants to, and for some unknown reason England is calling to him. After the American government agencies try to control him, he goes to London; where he meets Dr Ruth Burns at the London Institute of Psychic Research, run by MI6.

Soon Arthur and Ruth start a passionate love affair. They end up at Lake George, where Ruth saw The Lady of the Lake, and Excalibur many years before. There they find more than they bargained for.

For me the love affair between Arthur and Ruth happened a little too quickly, I would have liked to watch their relationship develop.
I highly recommend this book with its twist, turns and unusual plot.

I don’t want to say too much about the book’s story – I think too much has been said about that already, and, after all, it’s up to us to find out for ourselves. And besides, it doesn’t take long to find out; this book moves along, reads, as rapidly as a Bond film.

The story is narrated by our mind-reading super-powered hero, Arthur Merlin, and when he’s not around, the author affords us the choice of either assuming she has taken over as omniscient author, or – and this is clever – that Arthur is still telling the tale because he can be where he wants when he wants…

Clever.

But back to the “Bond” thing. I can’t help thinking that, along with his own experiences, had ‘The Paranormal’ been so big in Ian Fleming’s day, he might have written something like this. Arthur Merlin is a wonderful fantasy figure, though hardly the alpha hero in that, to be honest, he’s very tongue-in-cheek too: he’s non-negotiable on most things – as for terrorists, they’ve got no chance – he’s a governmental loose cannon… Oh, and he has a sex-drive like mine. Except he can pull it off, as it were – hell, he can even convert the staunchest lesbian to come out of the closet and see what she’s missing: a man. He’s a real man, you see, and he just can’t get enough. Anyone remember Bond doing that, by the way? Well, Arthur can spy on her taking a shower while pouring brandies in the kitchen. Can Bond do that? No!

Maybe I’m exaggerating a tad, but the book is great fun.

And then there’s the whole King Arthur angle, adding a whole new dimension – Bond meets Merlin, it’s a fantasy world gone mad. And yet the author somehow pulls it off; she has a wonderful imagination.

I recommend this book to anyone wondering what to do at the weekend. Escapism at its best.

A wonderful meld of magic, paranormal powers and myth. What happened to Excalibur? Did it exist? Did Excalibur give Arthur special powers? I have always been fascinated by the story of King Arthur and Knights of the Round Table. This book takes me back to those original tales of legend or fantasy, I doubt if we will ever know which.

If you think this is just another Arthurian tale, you’re mistaken. It combines fantasy with intrigue and suspense and with the reality of the world we live in now. It takes you on a lovely trip through the English countryside to the lake where Excalibur is said to lie. The author must have done a lot of research on the book and it is very interesting to read all the legends of Excalibur.

The characters are full of quirks and you will find them amusing. I got a bit confused at the end with all the revelations, since there were Russian subs and aliens popping up. I feel like the story has been left dangling a bit at the end. I’m not sure whether it was intentional, and if we will be hearing more about Arthur Merlin soon but I do hope so. I wouldn’t mind meeting these characters again. I recommend this book to all lovers of fantasy and lore. Great job, Sahara Foley!
