There are some really charming and colorful characters in this book, like Woodsmoke, Finnlugh the faerie, as well as Brenna the girl who can turn into a bird. I also liked Beansprout, Tom’s cousin who finds herself in trouble often including falling basically face first into a whole new world. She is a do now, think later kind of girl and I thought it was a great addition to the story. In addition to being blissfully adventurous, she also is heartwarming and I can tell that her cousin Tom looks up to her in many ways.
Beansprout is probably one of my favorite of the supporting characters and I wish that we could’ve known a bit more about her. This introduction would’ve probably helped the readers answer some of the unknown questions that we are left with. Such as why did she decide to do what she did at the end?
We’re also left wondering why did Tom decide to make the decision he did at the end? These two very different decisions, one reflecting growth and the other reflecting a regression, doesn’t seem to make sense. I wish we could’ve known more about this.
While there are many great characters, I sadly must say that I did not particularly enjoy Tom as a main character. At the beginning he didn’t seem like an insensitive person, but there were several moments in this story where I couldn’t believe he would even consider saying what he had just said. It’s like he didn’t even think about how this would make the other person feel. This is unfortunate because I was really rooting for him as a character and I kept wanting him to grow from this boy who just always has to have his way, to someone a bit more...well, in the words of the Hatter “muchier”.
I also wish King Arthur had been introduced into the story earlier, but instead he almost seemed like a side note. I feel like Tom needed his influence the whole time, to help him grow and mature as a person. However, this story is not complete yet and so I’m interested to see where it goes from here! It is truly a great collection of adventures and I would highly recommend this story for young readers.
This story is an easy, fun read!

The main character's are different and likable. Tom is like a typical teenage boy moody and curious.
A great read that as a new take on fantasy mixed in with legends and myths. Looking forward to book 2!
I received an advanced copy and I enjoyed it so much that I want to review
I would highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in the stories of King Arthur and Avalon. It's a clean read, so no matter what your age it's sure to satisfy and would also make the perfect introduction to Arthur if you want to know more about him.
The pace was perfect and I especially enjoyed the "story within a story" element. It had just the right mix of interest in the shorter tale and desire to get back to the main action, for me.
I can't wait for the sequel, I'll definitely be buying it.
