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.

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!

"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.

Had this book downloaded for a while and am now kicking myself for not having read it sooner. This is one book that is impossible to put down - and I left school a loooong time ago! Speaking as a Cornish girl born and bred, I found the dialogue natural and easy to follow, and had great fun in trying to work out the real life locations. There are some lovely passages throughout and as a debut novel it is very well written. Best news of all is that I can now go straight into book 2.. . . . . and I believe book 3 is nearly here - yayyy!

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!

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!

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

This is the first book in a series for middle grade children that takes the myths and legends of Arthur and gives it a modern twist. I loved it!

Arthur Penhaligon is a fabulous character. I liked him very much. He is an intelligent young man, with some wonderful friends. He's a normal teenager, who loves to use his skate board and hang with his friends. Little does he know what danger awaits.

This story intrigued me. I have read many stories about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, from history text books to fictional re-tellings. King Arthur's myth and legend has intrigued many people over the years. There have been several books, TV programmes and movies made over the years. However, this book is a completely unique and modern tale that captured me from the first page! Set in Cornwall, England, this book was eerily creepy and spooky in places, especially some of the scenes on Bodmin Moor - I had chills! There are some interesting characters in this book. Arthur's friends, Nick and Tamar, are complete opposites. Nick is fun loving, and has an easy going attitude. Tamar is a more serious and studious person; she is quite logical in her thinking.
This tale has magic and myth wrapped in an exciting adventure that will capture young readers' imaginations. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

Rosie Morgan is a debut author who has written an extremely atmospheric tale that children will love. Her take on the Arthurian legend is most certainly unique! I will follow her career with interest.

I highly recommend this story to both boys and girls in the 7 to 14 age range. However, I also recommend this book to adults if you love YA or fantasy genres. - Lynn Worton
