I was given a free copy of this book for review and thank goodness because I would have been disappointed if I'd paid for it. The book seems unedited and published prematurely before the author got anyone to read it and give their feedback. The first few pages of the book are absolutely drenched in adjectives "heaving bosoms" and "moving one luscious hip at a time"?! I nearly gave up reading but then the story really picked up and I started to enjoy it. However about 1/3 of the way into the story it ended. No drawing together of threads. No satisfactory ending to the story at all. It just ended. Now I can only presume it has been left like this for an obvious sequel but normally each sequel has its own story which is wrapped up leaving the overall theme open for further expansion but not here. Nope nothing is clarified or explained - it simply stops. It's a real shame as the concept and the middle of the book were good and had real potential but it failed to meet that potential and just frustrated me. Maybe if the sequel had been published and I could have read it immediately after I might not have felt that way - my advice to the author is withdraw this from sale and edit it and complete the cycle of the story or I fear you will get more review like this. Sorry

I'm a big fan of Arthurian legends and so, perhaps, I felt that the book could have been better. Arthur and his 12 knights are brought back to fight the battle of the faery queens. Had it been so plausible to reawaken Arthur, it does make the reader question why Arthur was not awakened any earlier?

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.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

2.0 out of 5 stars Book was ok but their are some definite issues! 6 Dec. 2014
By Jules - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Book 1 in the risen king series. The book was ok, but there are some definite issues! It starts out well with a fairy world along side the human world. In the fairy world there's a war happening over leadership. The four queens bring the knights of the round table back to life to help them win the war. They have been betrayed by one of the queens sons and another very bad and sadistic fairy.
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars insta-love, snowstorm and too many loose ends 31 July 2015
By MKH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wanted to like this one, because of the King Arthur plus fairies things....it sounded intriguing! However, the reality was that the first HALF of the book was extremely slow (where nothing of import happened). Also, Arthur and Aiofe (what kind of name is that anyway!) Fall desperately in love in less than 24 hours and there wasn't even a love story to go with it...... they literally gaze into each other's eyes once and are making out (really!).

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! 😢😬😤

5.0 out of 5 stars King Arthur and so much more 14 May 2013
By Pamela Beckford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am not a fantasy genre reader. But I read this book and absolutely loved it. It melted the read/human world with the fairae world. I cannot wait for the second installment in this series. The book grabbed me from the very beginning and I was driven to read and read to finish - but then I was disappointed that it was over. I highly recommend this book
5.0 out of 5 stars Twist of King Arthur and his knights 23 Aug. 2015
By Anna Katherine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A wonderful twist of King Arthur, loved it with the plot, evil witch, four fairy Queens. Can't wait to get the next book. Samantha Warren has taken a wonderful different direction with what we know about King Arthur and that he would have a better ending with his true love and still have his knights
3.0 out of 5 stars More like 3. 5 if it were possible 7 Dec. 2014
By Carol Bosselman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
More like 3.5 if it were possible, enjoyed it very much but there were quite a few distracting errors that editing should have caught. Would have also liked to have seen more characterization of the knights, altho that may come in later books; the human characters, and most of the main faery, were pretty well done.
