News from Avalon...

Sword of Darkness (Lords of Avalon, #1)Sword of Darkness by Kinley MacGregor

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A new twist to an old tale.

We all know that the battle between good and evil ended on the fields of Camlan, where King Arthur Pendragon was wounded by his son Mordred. We know that both are waiting to meet again and make clear once and for all who wins this century old battle. But what happened after that? What happened after the isle of Avalon disappeared in the mists, what happened after Lancelot betrayed his king and friend?

The Author Kinley MacGregor answers this question in a wonderful writing stile. She takes us into a world where the old battles are still fought and time travelling is normal. She is able to entwine old elements of medieval stories with modern pieces.

In this story the bad guy is easy to spot but not easy to judge. The twists are unforeseeable and the atmosphere as well as the story telling is good. You can see that Kinley MacGregor knows what she is doing.

A recommendation for fans of Arthurian legends with modern twists. For fans of stories about love and friendship and for people who like reading about the old battle of good and evil. Definitely not the best book in this genre but a good read after all.
