RATING: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
❥SYNOPSIS: I’ve been chased my whole life. As a fugitive refugee in the territory controlled by the tyrannical Mercer corporation, I’ve always had to hide who I am. Until I found Excalibur.
Now I’m done hiding.
My name is Ari Helix. I have a magic sword, a cranky wizard, and a revolution to start.
When Ari crash-lands on Old Earth and pulls a magic sword from its ancient resting place, she is revealed to be the newest reincarnation of King Arthur. Then she meets Merlin, who has aged backward over the centuries into a teenager, and together they must break the curse that keeps Arthur coming back. Their quest? Defeat the cruel, oppressive government and bring peace and equality to all humankind.
❥MY REVIEW: Ahhhh! What an amazing book! So in all transparency, I wasn’t very familiar with the story of King Arthur.. but you know what? That did not matter! The story hooked me and it all was so well written, I didn’t want it to end.
It’s a gender bent retelling of the King Arthur legend, and it did not disappoint. It’s so unique, in it’s own way. It has something for everyone, romance, magic, friendship, space.. yes SPACE!
With a strong cast of unique characters, and told in own-voices POV it was everything I needed this month. I have loved all of the Jimmy Patterson Books, and this one was among my favorite.. I truly recommend this wonderful read. You will be so glad you read it.. BELIEVE ME.. You NEED it!
Thank You #JimmyPattersonBooks for providing me with this beautiful ARC Galley in exchange for an honest review!
