That issue aside, the author attempts to create an original plot based on a classic tale that has been told, retold and twisted for many centuries. Does she succeed? For the most part, yes. But it is not an entirely easy story to follow.
Given that ebooks allow the author to hyperlink text, I think this should have been done to enable the reader to easily search for an explanation of the character. I've loved Arthurian legend since the first time I saw Camelot performed with Julie Andrews and Richard Harris. Ever since I've read any version of the story I could get my hands on so I had high hopes for this book.
Overall, the storytelling is good and I wasn't disappointed but confusion ruled in many areas of the story which can affect the reader a lot depending on how much the know and understand the Arthurian legend. Aside from the tried-and-true plot line, the well-drawn, variety of characters make this book a joy to read. Do I recommend this book? If you are looking for something original, then yes. If you are looking for a book that leaves you with no questions, you may not enjoy all of this book.

Meanwhile in the human world we meet a young girl who is being trained as a hunter by her grandfather. Her mother was killed by a fairy. The mother was also a hunter, as well as her grandmother. It's a generational trait that was started by one of the fairy queens in order for the hunters to hunt any rogue fairies that crossed into the human world; fairies are not suppose to leave fairy and humans are not to cross over into fairy land.
The story goes pretty well until the girl stumbles into the fairy world when on a hunt. She and Arthur, as in king Arthur, have one of those "love at first sight" things. Only problem is that it's not believable. There isn't any kind of emotion, guessing, wonder, fear, or elation,; there's none of that. They basically see each other, then they're in each others arms saying " I love you". Really????? Then there's this point in the story where the knight group splits up, one going to the human world, the other to the evil fairy's castle to destroy it and her. We get one part: the human world drama, but the other, the castle scene, is completely missing! No battle. Not one word from any of the parties about what occurred,or if anything happened at all. the evil fairy woman even returns to that same castle with a wound, and nothing is mentioned about any army attacking. What the heck happened? I feel completely let down and perturbed! Perhaps if the writer would have continued, then she could have finished the story. I mean... the book is only ~ 190 pages, so it's a really a very short story. She needs to try again in my opinion. I know there's another book in the series; that book is only ~ 160 pages, its even less pages than the first! Come on! I'M guessing here, but i believe with only ~160pages that this book is merely the rest of the story that should have been in the first book! Combining the two books would give the reader a complete story in ~350 pages. Great! Unfortunately, that's not the case. I do not appreciate writers who write in this style: chopping the books up, minimal pages and unfinished stories within a series. She wants ~$3.00 for those ~160 pages but she will not be getting from me. It makes me sad and mad ,all in one because I'd like to know what happens to the characters but the writing, size of book and the potential for another incomplete story prohibits buying the next book. Sorry. Ms Warren has potential; she just really needs a great editor or perhaps, partner with another author until she can build her creative writing skills.
Even though that was free on Amazon, I'm ticked off that I spent the time reading (or in this case, skimming) it at all! Don't waste your time! 😢😬😤
