Myths and fairy tales come to life.’”Samantha Warren has succeeded in weaving multiple times and places, legends and fairy tales, into a tightly woven and beautiful tapestry of a story.For such an incredibly multi-faceted story, the book flows easily. It contains so many elements: in 2012 Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table have been resurrected, the kingdom of Faery is at war, and a faery hunter of the human realm is just discovering her complicated and royal lineage. It would seem impossible for all of these plot lines to come together as one, but they do just that.Among the epic, exciting, and well- described battles and jostling for control of the Faery realm, a romance blossoms between two outsiders, from different times and places, but with an undeniable chemistry: King Arthur (yes, that King Arthur) has found his romantic counterpart in Aiofe, a half-human faery hunter and descendent of faery royalty. Arthur is as you would expect him, chivalrous and strong, a true Knight. Aiofe is a great female lead, strong and tough, with a sense of humor and ready to find love. Arthur and Aiofe’s story is my favorite part of the book, and I look forward to seeing it develop in future installments of the series.“Her cheeks flushed as she looked up, meeting his clear blue eyes. He was so handsome, so amazing. He would die for her, she could feel it deep in her soul. This was the man she could trust completely with her mind, body, and soul.”This book does as the first book in a series should, it introduces the reader to important players, solves some initial mysteries, provides it’s own intense action and intrigue and sets the stage for what promises to be an epic series. It finishes on a cliffhanger and I am eagerly awaiting more of this story!*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
