I have read a couple of J. R. Rain's books mainly some of the Samantha Moon (vampire) stories and found that I really enjoyed this story-weavers works so when this was offered as a free download I thought why not.
I had been looking forward to reading this Arthurian outing by J. R. Rain and I wasn't disappointed, I have an affection for the legend of King Arthur I have loved reading about Arthur and Merlin since I was a little boy and J. R. Rain's story hooked me straight away especially the first chapter.
It was so powerful; the story is written in the first tense furthermore what is rare in this instance it is written as if the story-weaver is himself the main character.
The hero of this story is a man named James, who is obliged to seek out liberation from intense dreams concerning the Holy Grail and the legend of King Arthur he comes to Glastonbury, England, find answers.
I don't want to spoil the story but it's definitely not, what I anticipated, the writing is superb as expected from an experienced story-weaver of J. R. Rain's reputation.
For me personally the story ends too soon, just when James, and indeed I myself start to have a notion of what is happening, I guess we shall both just have to wait for the next episode, which should be "Merlin", to magically appear!
In conclusion, this is a well-woven story, which might not be some reader's idea of the Arthurian legends, but it is a breath of fresh air for a story I have loved since being a little boy.
The story-weaver has brought it up to date whilst keeping the original idea close to the legend, I myself do not know of many story-weavers who can do that credibly J. R. Rain can.

Arthur (The Grail Quest Trilogy #1)

I have been looking forward to reading this book. I love the legend of King Arthur and am seriously hooked on J R Rain's writing! The first chapter blew me away, it was so intense. The book is written in first tense and what is unusual in this case is, it's written as if J R himself is the main character. To be honest I have no idea what Mr Rains first name is but coincidently, the main character - James - is remarkably similiar to our Mr Rain himself! I am equally in love with and confused with how the novel progresses from here. The main character, James, is compelled to seek relief from some vivid dreams involving the Holy Grail and the legend of King Arthur and comes to England, namely Glastonbury, to find some answers. What follows is mind blowing. I don't want to spoil the surprise but it's certainly not what I expected. The writing is superb but I expected no less from J R Rain. The story ends much too soon, just when the reader, and James, begin to have an inkling of whats going on.... I'll just have to sit tight and wait for the next instalment, Merlin, to be written!

Being a fan of J.R. Rain, I have to ask what's happening to him? The story is certainly a bit daft but I did feel for some of the characters. Rain writes well - pulling the reader along nicely - but this story ends at a point where it should really be starting, and is an expensive book as a result. Many of the pages within the 152 calculated by Amazon are taken up with previews. Don't mind previews if the story is priced fairly. Rain has obviously begun churning out books (with the aid of co-writers) and I fear he's sold his soul like Cussler and a few other big name writers. Although I enjoyed the story (it is worth reading if you're a fan) I couldn't help but feel a little annoyed by the way he has taken a major liberty with the length of this story. I feel he is looking to increase the profits at a cost to his integrity.
Disappointing, Mr Rain (please come back down to earth).

This book reads more like a diary: a story written by an author who is trying to get away from writing crime stories, and fancies writing something more spiritual, and in the meantime is dragged to England by strange dreams he has about the Holy Grail. Once he reaches England he meets some strange characters and is soon involved in an adventure which does turn out to be vaguely spiritual (but not overbearingly so) and promises more excitement to come in further instalments.

Not up to normal standard and easily discarded when other works even by the same author so readily available.

I will read books by other writers in the short-term but could go back after time.

I am not normally a fan of King Arthur stories, and admit that the low price was the main thing driving my purchase of this book. However, I read the book very quickly, enjoyed it and found it to be a very modern "take" on the King Arthur genre - far from the usual.

The Author's quirky humor was also to my liking, and had me laughing out loud at some points.

So whilst this book did not have the depth or substance that I expected considering the blurb provided and subject-matter (I was expecting more along the lines of Mark Chadbourn's Lord of Misrule series, for some reason), it was a fun bit of fluff that I enjoyed and can recommend. I will try to catch the sequel when it is released.
