This is the seventh book in the Goddess Summoning Series and I have got to say that unfortunately if wasn't as good as the others. This one tells the tale of Camelot with our heroine Isabel being transported back into the past and falling for King Arthur. Although not as good as the other books in the series I did still enjoy it however I was a little bit disappointed as other reviewers appear to be with the fact that the story seems to have been done before. I would still recommend the Goddess Summoning Series however not so much this book. My favourite is still by far Goddess of Spring. Hopefully the next Goddess Summoning book (if one is brought out) will get back to the normal brilliant story lines that the other books had. If you like the series though it is still worth a read.

1. Goddess of the Sea: A Goddess Summoning Novel (Goddess Summoning Series)
2. Goddess of Spring: A Goddess Summoning Novel (Goddess Summoning Series)
3. Goddess of Light: A Goddess Summoning Novel (Goddess Summoning Series)
4. Goddess of the Rose: A Goddess Summoning Novel (Goddess Summoning Series)
5. Goddess of Love: A Goddess Summoning Novel (Goddess Summoning Series)
6. Warrior Rising (Berkley Sensation) now re-named Goddess of Troy: A Goddess Summoning Novel (Goddess Summoning Series)

Having read no other books in the series, I cannot compare this to any other Goddess Summoning book - however I can say that this is a thoroughly average book. The problem is too simple - as is the solution. The sex scenes are light comparative to other PC Cast books. There's no action. In fact this book seems to be more about politics than anything else. On top of that, the storyline is self defeating. When reading the end bear in mind that the reason Isabel went to Camelot was to make Arthur happy.
But (there's always a but) this is a very well written story, promoting feminism and extremely funny throughout - look out for the pickles! And if - like me - you're a Camelot obsessed freak, this isn't that bad a story.

Please don't read this book expecting it to be anywhere near the standard of the other Goddess Summoning Series because you are going to be sorely disappointed!
Even though I found myself laughing out loud almost throughout the book, it couldn't make up for what seemed like an unresearched, rushed and flimsy storyline.
As for the ending. I'm at a loss for words. It is beyond lame! I had to reread it a couple of times, thinking I must have missed something.
There are very few P.C Cast Books I have not read. I am a huge P.C Cast fan. This book is a disappointment and not her usual standard of work. I feel let down!

I dont have to go over the plot again, as its been discribed already.
I have read all other goddess summoning series and I have to admit, it was the most boring one. the story seemed to be very unrealistic to me, as everything just seemed to be too nice, too beautiful and no problem was too difficult to solve, the whole set was just too predictable. I couldnt identify myself with the heroine at all. I love to read about strong women who kick ass, but isabel just couldnt shut up and she saved the day every day... etc.
sorry ms cast, but this book was just a let down to me and I know u can do much better!

It was bleeding awful.
I like some of PC Cast's books, because they're just silly fun and have made my way through the goddess series hoping to find some of the good storytelling I liked in the divine books, but these were just not as good (with the possible exception of Goddess of the Spring), and none were worse than this one.
For a feminist writer, she apparently thinks all women were complete morons until the invention of the shopping channel, but not to worry because the goddesses are there to zap 21st century women back to resolve everyone's issues with TV references that no one gets because they're living in the past.
She makes the goddess and main character speak in really terrible laboured rhymes to each other for no apparent reason. The main character's best friends are actually called Tom, Dick and Harry.
Quinevere has no personality, just decides to be bezzie mates or mortal enemies depending on the weather. Arthur is incapable of running a meeting, let alone a kingdom. Despite the fact that women are supposedly terribly oppressed and taken for granted, the men all just happily accept being shouted at by a strange woman who decides to reorganise the castle she's visiting as a guest.
You can defeat an oncoming army by leaving out a picnic for them. Mordred's daddy issues can be immediately resolved by being beaten up by dad's new girlfriend.
The whole thing is moronic, lazy and just plain weird in places. I liked PC Cast before I started reading these books but the quality just declined and declined over this series, from the first couple, which were actually pretty good, to the awfulness of Troy and then this absolute wreck. She left out any potential for real conflict, painted over all the issues she did bring up with the most unrealistic solutions, and then ripped off the ending of one of her other books.

Whilst many know PC more for her House of Night series which are written alongside her daughter, PC comes to her own in what I can only term the Urban Fantasy Bodice Ripper where strong female leads walk the fine line of independence backed within the rules and restrictions of the society into which they're placed. Here in this, the first novel in the Goddess of Summoning series the reader is transported back to the days of Camelot where a water goddess seeks to save her love, Merlin, from the fates by attempting to save Arthur from despair.

It's beautifully written, its definitely a title that is a bit of a guilty pleasure and one that the reader will more than likely enjoy under the duvet with a glass of wine and a box of chocs. Ideal fare for the busy holiday and a great opportunity for the reader to escape the chaos to a world of their own as this title weaves its own eldritch spell of calmness within the storm.

To me this is one of the best book by PC Cast. I am a lover of Mythology and this book kept me turning the pages. If you are a fan of Mythology, this book is definitely for you.

I eenjoyed this book from beginning to end and intend to read the rest of the books in this series.

Overall, I was not all too interested in the idea of Camelot and King Arthur, and although I have not given Cast a full 5 stars the book did impress me. However, it did differ slightly from what I had orginally thought of the plot. Not in a bad way, but it still didn't exactly pitch up to be my favourite in the Goddess Summoning Series. Isabel annoyed me slightly - many say that Mikki was the worst character, but frankly I loved Mikki and disliked Isabel. Well, not so much that I couldn't stand her, but there were times were I wished she would just stop.
Mary was wonderful, and the talks of 'pickles' was fantastic! Overall I say give it a try, give all of the books in the series a good old try. It was just this one that I didn't completely enjoy.

This is the first P.C Cast book I've read; though seen her book's advertised. The plot intrigued me. I mean who wouldn't want to go back in time and meet King Arthur, Lancelot and Gwen? Isobel - the heroine - is a feisty; early forties, character - which appealed, and sent back in time to rescue the breaking heart of Arthur.
I liked Isobel's cheeky manner' but her answer for all occasions at times become a tad annoying toward the end. It didn't stop me enjoying the story.
Overall it was appealing, warm ,funny and a good read. I thought the conclusion tied together nicely, and glad Mz Cast left me feeling....Oh, I enjoyed that, and wanting to try on her other Goddess novels for size.

This is the seventh book in the Goddess Summoning Series. I found some of the others books in the Goddess Summoning series light hearted and fun to read. However, I found this one to be pretty awful. Somehow I couldn't get into this book, I'm not sure why. I wanted to like the premise; Camelot, Knights etc. But I found myself becoming irritated with the pace and style of the writing and unable to like any of the characters written into the plot. I got about half way through the book and then gave up. Like I wrote previously, I found the other books in the series fun to read but, I would not recommend this one.
