Product Description

Product Description

'The Golden Sword', for children aged 9-14 years, has received 5* reviews from fantasy lovers of all ages in the UK and the US and reached #1 in Arthurian children's ebooks.
It’s Arthurian, but not as you know it.

'Later Arthur would wonder why he’d wished for a more interesting life. His had been fine as it was. School, skateboarding and hanging out with his friends should have been enough. But maybe it wasn’t his wish that changed everything - maybe it would have happened anyway........

Arthur and his friends find themselves pulled into a dark world of magic, mystery and danger.
A world where people travel through time, animals take control and a mythical sword becomes real.
A world where the murderous Crow Man is determined to rob Arthur of his ancient birth-right - at any cost.
Normal is about to go out of the window.'

The illustrations, drawn by Rosie Morgan, have been likened to those found in 'Inkheart'.

The second in the Camelot Inheritance series has now been released:
'The Time Smugglers' is the story of four teenagers, ancient knights....and a dragon, a very tiny one, pitted against time-defying enemies.

About the Author

Rosie Morgan lives, writes and draws in the county of Cornwall, UK. Before she started writing, she used to teach in primary schools dotted throughout south-east Cornwall. Apart from working with children in classrooms, she has also been involved with church youth groups, even being brave enough to go camping with them!(No mean feat for someone who hates the cold.) Rosie, and her husband Peter, have a growing family, some of whom have been generous enough to give them some rather wonderful mini-grandkids. But now they share their Cornish house with two, very slightly, mad cats. One has blue eyes, the other has green eyes and both need lots and lots of attention. When they can, Rosie and her husband escape to a tiny cottage in southern Brittany, France. Their French is slowly improving!

More About the Author

For many years I taught some great kids in some great, little schools, I loved it. (One of the schools even had an outdoor toilet, complete with a resident spider.)
Now I'm writing stories and I'm loving that too!

I live with my husband, Pete, in Cornwall.
It's a fabulous county on the toe of the UK. It also happens to be the setting for this series and has legendary links with King Arthur.

Pete and I have grown-up children and mini grandchildren - so now we share our house with two mad, attention-seeking cats.

The illustrated versions of the books will be hitting the shelves soon, both in kindle and paperback format. I post some of the pictures on my facebook page and blog as they come along, pop in and have a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to what is hopefully if great series 20 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rosie Morgan's children's book, Arthur and the Last Knight, is a great read for adults as well. It kept me interested and engaged throughout, waiting to see what happened next.

In the book Arthur and his two friends find rather unusual things suddenly happening around them. As things progress it seems that the past is breaking through to the present, in the classic battle of good against evil. This novel is based in and around Bodmin Moor in Cornwall and provides links to the legend of King Arthur and his knights.

It's clear that this is the first of what will become a series, so I'm really looking forward to Rosie Morgan writing the next instalment to find out how Arthur fulfils his destiny that is outlined in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars King Arthur's Legend - WooHoo! I love it! 13 July 2013
By CeDany
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wonderful story with a twist on the King Arthur's Legends. Yes, it is for children but it's one subject that I continue to enjoy and read even though I'm not under 16 any more LOL!

Since it is a subject that I totally enjoyed since I was very young, even though it was only 3 chapters from the preview offered free here at Amazon.

I'm hoping sincerely, to put my hands on a copy eventually - it is delightful!

But if you are going to look at it and say: 'Duh it's just another King Arthur Legends re-hashed!' - well you're not giving it a chance and that's not fair to the author.

Otherwise if you enjoy the various Legends on paper and in films - you will enjoy this one tremendously!

5.0 out of 5 stars There went my weekend 13 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I downloaded this in the morning, after a long week at work. My plan for the weekend was to do some jobs around the house, go out to the shops and various other bits and bobs. All that went out the window because, much to the chagrin of my family, I couldn't put this down. A really great little book, keeps you right on edge throughout and leaves you wanting more. Just wish it was longer!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent and easy read 9 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A very different take on the Arthur legend. The main characters are likable and the baddies are sinister enough to keep you gripped. Leaves you wanting more.

A great read for kids from 9 to 99!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this idea and thought it was very fresh 29 Oct. 2014
By steven
Format:Kindle Edition
I was a little worried at first because I don't know a lot about Camelot (so many different interpretations!) so was pleasantly surprised that this is a modern re-telling recasting Arthur as a kid who loves his skateboard, before heading into the adventure.

I loved this idea and thought it was very fresh. Arthur felt very real to me, like any kid I might have grown up with but with a quiet strength that unveils as the story goes on.

This was brilliantly paced, and easy to read so I'd recommend to all ages. I enjoyed the fusion of past and present, but without being gimmicky or using the premise as a crutch, instead creating a blend that was surprisingly awesome.

A must read!

By Lucinda
"There are more things under the heavens than we could ever imagine..."

Reminiscent of `Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone' , when the story starts with Dumbledore appearing in Privet Drive with McGonagal (as a Cat); the stranger & the bird was very similar! Plunging into a supremely magical world where nothing is as it seems, I felt like I had uncovered an exciting *new* children's fantasy world and the start of something truly EPIC.
Inspired concepts, creatures and breathtaking settings transport readers both young and old into the most remarkable creation of wondrous delights. Despite being a middle grade/ YA story it is also a novel that the older reader can connect with and enjoy, as something containing universal meaning and thought-provoking nuance. Action-packed, fast-paced and engaging "The Golden Sword" is a thrilling story that's mesmirizingly magical and which cleverly combines modern-day with ancient myths & legends.

I have always loved Arthurian mythology and so as a fan of BBC Merlin and tales of King Arthur, I was delighted to encounter those iconic elements within the deftly woven narrative {i.e. Sword Excalibur and Arthur}. Stalked by a sinister crow man, observed by invisible watchers and surveyed by a mysterious writer...this one boy's ordinary life transforms into something quite extraordinary. If the dazzling cover of this book doesn't catch your eye then the exquisitely beautiful illustrations by author Rosie Morgan will, as like in the book `Inkheart' the written world is brought to life on the page!!

The past and present collides in an explosive fusion of 21st century school life and archaic prophecies relating to Merlin & Arthur, that's brilliantly realised in gloriously rich detail.
