This book takes place in the present day and the knights of Camelot who fought alongside Arthur and Merlin have been living for over one thousand years. A spell that Merlin cast granted immortality to the knights and held Morgan and Mordred and their creatures at bay until the knights find their other halves, their Tresors. Once the Tresors are all found a new and final battle will begin. As the first book in this series there is a lot of world building and information introduced.
I definitely felt this story is strong on plot. In this book, Lance (Lancelot) rescues Mel (Merlin) and immediately recognizes him as a Tresor but has doubts about which knight Mel is meant to be with. There is no connection between Mel and the other knights there though he is attracted to Lance. Lance does appear to feel some connection with Mel but for some reason he is in denial. I tried to get in his head a little and figure out why. One possible reason is that Lance was expecting Guinevere. After all legend says that they had a thing when Arthur was king. Though that is debunked and mostly rumors in this book. It is possible it is because Mel is male and Lance isn't gay, though he has been intimate with men so that doesn't seem likely either. There is also what Merlin told Lance before the curse started, that once Lance met his mate, that it was the beginning of the new war. In the end, I don't know what exactly made Lance so bull-headed about it but maybe he just has a stubborn trait.
Though Lance eventually accepts his fate and he and Mel do happily engage in sexy times, it isn't quite settled for them. There are forces that don't want the knights to find their happiness. Mel's life is threatened a few times and there are suspicious side characters that are playing a role in the drama but I'm not sure if they are side of Morgan or the knights. There was a good amount of mystery in this book.
I am definitely intrigued by the whole concept of this series and while this book was about Lance and Mel, I expect the future books will be about the other knights and their Tresors. I did enjoy the romance of Lance and Mel but there were times it felt disjointed. I think their characters and their falling for each other could have used a little bit more attention with all the times they seemed to stutter step their way into a relationship. While the romance fell a little short for me, I am very excited about where the story will go from here, and can't wait to read more.
However, and that's a big HOWEVER, I wish the MCs(Lancelot and Mel) simply communicated. There was a whole lot of jumping to conclusions for which I wasn't amused by in the least. Lance was also so frustrating to read about. I don't think I fully warmed up to him but at least he was honest. I'll give him that . I just wished he had spoken to Mel about all the issues before they got out of control.
So overall, this book had pretty strong writing and the world building was good but definitely could've really knocked it out of the park had it had the "more" factor. Also,this book detailed great backbone of what could be a good series if set up right.
I Will definitely be reading the next books in the series
