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: A Fantasy Novel (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!
Disappointing, Mr Rain (please come back down to earth).
I will read books by other writers in the short-term but could go back after time.
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.
