This book sucked me in and took me on a journey through time to find King Arthur (something I have always wanted to do!). It is funny, fast-paced and sometimes violent but always in a way that is meaningful and part of the story.
The story builds up as it goes along, with layer upon layer skillfully added to it that enriches the whole thing. The characters themselves are fantastic and I think that I've fallen in love with 2 or 3 of them in this book. There are some laugh out loud moments, sadness, death and action.
Absolutely brilliant for a debut novel and I immediately went to put the other two on my wishlist. These are keepers for sure.
