Varian is one of those dangerous creatures that no one is quite sure of: is he good or evil, knight or beast? Even he isn't sure.

Merewyn was once a beautiful woman who had her looks stolen with one foolish wish. Only she can help Varian escape when he is caught by his evil mother and Morgen (of Arthur and Camelot fame). Together with Blaise, the mandrake who we've met previously in Sword of Darkness, they make their escape and flee into some haunted, spooky woods. Intriguing characters, humour, fantasy adventure and romance combine to make this a lovely read. It's not particularly intense or passionate, but there are some touching moments that make it an enoyable read.

Just lately, I've found that Sherrilyn Kenyon/Kinley MacGregor books to be lacking her initial depth and intensity. Good read, but I want her to get back to her fabulous best.

It's funny how different people view books I really enjoed this offering from Kinley MacGregor and soon forgot that it was Sherrilyn Kenyon writing in her alter ego. As usual she provides the reader with excellent secondary characters and some very funny moments that had me laughing out loud,(much to my daughters annoyance). As usual she doesn't pussyfoot around the sex scenes and she place's them with her usual deft touch. This book follows the traditional pattern of trials of adversity co-joined with moral dilema's where true love wins out. A true feel good escapist read without much realism intruding. Just as I like it.

The Grail Knights protect the treasures of Britain. They and some others battle Morgen who has control of Avalon. The Merlin is their boss, and she trusts Varian duFey, she uses him as an assassin, to protect the Grail Knight's secrets. He's the son of Morgen and is despised for his birth.

She's Merewyn, Morgen's captive and transformed into a hideous hag. She's offered a chance to reclaim her looks and to escape the constant terror in Avalon.

When the two meet they aren't sure whether they should trust each other. But they have to in order to escape.

It's fun, fun that doesn't stand up well to careful examination but that's not why you would read this, this is enjoyment reading not serious reading and once I got past the first few chapters I did enjoy it.

Good easy read but compared to sword of darkness I was a bit disappointed at the lack of depth and passion in this sequel. Although the characters are just as engaging and perfect, the storyline and interactions are nothing in comparison to what happend in Sword of Darkness. Still enjoyable and would recommend but hope Kinley MacGregor moves back to her form in her next.

If you like this author then this is a book you have to read. A great story with a lot of humour & love. Some very witty one liners that had me laughing & some very exciting love scenes that just made you fall in love with the hero. I read this book over 2 nights & just wished it had been longer as i didnt want it to finish. All KMG fans will have to read this !

Knight of Darkness (Lords of Avalon)

Ordered this book having read all Dark Hunter/Dream Hunter Books although stories not related was still a fantastic read.
