There was a lot of story elements that seem all too convenient to be true. One was that all these English characters happen to all be in Canada, and the small city of Regina no less.
I liked the main character a lot. The narrator did a splendid job. I loved her Canadian accent, it really brought the story alive.
The ending dragged on for more than 30 minutes after the climax. This had me checking the time, wondering when it was going to be over.
This story is the first book in a new series, Song of the Sword. Merlin, from Camelot fame, is living in Toronto. He goes by the name of Rex Major (yup, High King). But after a millennia and a half, his magic is barely there. He wants to return to Faerie, so he needs magic to open the door. When Arthur died, Excalibur returned to the Lady of the Lake . She broke into pieces and hid them all over the mortal world. Merlin has been searching, but to no avail. The Lady feels him getting close so she searches for one of her descendants to whom she can transfer her power. She has been trying for a long time. She may have found someone.
Join the quest of two young teens, from Regina, as they get involved in this conflict that is mired in mythology and legend. Can they locate the pieces of Excalibur? Can they help stop Merlin? How has Merlin been able to continue his search for so long?
Elizabeth Klett adds an authenticity to the story. She does great British and Canadian accents.. I was given this audiobook, at my request, in exchange for an honest review.. I am glad I did as I really enjoyed the story and look forward to the next.
