Arthur Penhaligon didn’t know why a strange “Crow Man” was following him and his friends around. Or why that man would break into Arthur’s house just to change Arthur’s screen saver for his computer. Or why storms keep happening whenever the Crow Man is around – it’s the middle of August and HAIL is coming down! And there is also the small matter of a big army of cats protecting the group of friends. Something strange is going on… Arthur finds himself being captured by unknown enemies and caught up in a battle between good and evil.

Don’t think this is another King Arthur story because of the name. This one is very different! I love the action in this book, and the plot was great. The characters were very good and likeable.  There were a couple of instances when characters appear in the story and were not introduced to the reader right away that I found a bit confusing (like when Tamar first appeared). The book was a quick read and very appropriate for any age. The ending left me wanting more! I will be looking for the second book in the series to come out.  I think the cover is good, but I wish it showed a golden sword!

I give this book 4 our of 5 book worms.fourbooks

  1. Sounds like a good read! I agree with you on the cover. It’s not bad, and I always like faces, but it does look a little homemade. The cost of getting a manuscript edited and professionally covered is daunting for an indie author–I know!–especially when MG books are so slow to recover those costs.

  2. I was immediately captured by the title, Erik, because I LOVE stories about King Arthur! But then you described it as “not another King Arthur story” so now my interest is really piqued!

  3. You are right about the sword missing from the cover. Too bad they did not simply incorporate one into the title font!

  4. Well, I’m quite curious about this one. Camelot, but not King Arthur? Is it some kind of time travel story? Or kind of King Arthur in present day? Sounds interesting.

  5. I find the title interesting. Although the author isn’t writing the traditional King Arthur, the names are very close. I even find the author’s last name interesting — Morgan — which is Celtic/Welsh. And Morgain or variations of the name were prominent in adult novels like “Mists of Avalon.” This one catches my attention! Good review.

  6. How fun that this is a unique book about King Arthur. Great review! Thanks for telling me about this one!
