The Secret of Excalibur (Excalibur Saga)
"Warlight" by Michael Ondaatje
A dramatic coming-of-age story set in the decade after World War II, "Warlight" is the mesmerizing new novel from the best-selling author of "The English Patient." Learn more
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. - 5 star review by Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite
It's a wonderful page turner right from the beginning: when a cocky yet endearing Arthur Merlin exhibits his superpowers. 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. Extremely consistent with a clear theme, this book is certainly an enjoyable read! - 5 star Maria Beltran/Readers' Favorite
The characters are mismatched, yet have a great chemistry and a lot of unexpected depth. The plot is metered and springs unexpected turns that just really work, even the really, really unexpected ones. The book is odd, and it just works, really going above expectations from what a quick blurb can give you.
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.

Romance, mystery, and humor all underscore this unimaginable adventure to discover the secrets of the Lady of the Lake. Just when you think you know where it's going, the story shifts and you're left clueless again. Make another prediction, and BAM! It shifts again and you're left reeling. I love that- when the story is unpredictable and exciting.
My one negative- and it's a minor one- is the fact that our main character called his love interest "kid." She is in her thirties, and the moniker just kind of annoyed me, particularly at the end when he was using it every other sentence. The author is from the midwest, so it could be a regional thing that I don't understand.
Overall, I really liked the story. I can't wait to see what happens next and have the sequel: "The Revenge of Excalibur" already lined up on my Kindle to start tomorrow! Great job!
The ending was wacky and deeply sci-fi in the finish which I should've seen coming, but didn't. I will definitely read this author again.
