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.Read more ›
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.
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…
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.
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!
