I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
THOMAS D. LEE is an author of fantastical and historical fiction. In 2019, he completed an MA in creative writing at the University of Manchester’s Center for New Writing. He has now embarked upon a Ph.D. at the same institution, specializing in queer interpretations of the Arthurian mythos. He frequently considers emulating Merlin and becoming a hermit in the woods who speaks only in riddles.
“Don’t listen to them.”
Kay is awoken again and sets out on a quest. He is ready and willing, though he would rather stay asleep. But adventure awaits, and a knight fulfills his duty.
This was a creative and interesting take on this mythology. I enjoyed the modern spin and the way things were developed. The whole concept was well done.
The writing was good, and there was a nice mix of new and old English. I enjoyed the character development. There were many characters to follow, but they were all well done.
I appreciated the humor mixed throughout; it helped break up the seriousness of the plot. The general theme was well represented, and the point was made.
This was a fantastical read for anyone who enjoys medieval lore and dystopian fiction!
