Summary of the Book:

Can you craft a weapon out of healing?

Jamie discovers his hallucinations are fae spirits stealing life, and joins his childhood friend Drea in her quest to banish them. Along the way he accidentally unlocks a traitor’s healing ability, who in turn uses it as a sign to prove he is King Arthur returned. Drea has given up on the Phoenix but Jamie has not, and learns more about his magic from Viviane’s family. Not satisfied with the grail, the false Arthur’s search now spans both the the faewilds and the Earth.

Can they stop the impostor Arthur’s crusade when the one thing they need most to stop the fae is the most sure sign of Arthur’s return itself… to draw the Sword from the Throne.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is the second book in the series and I was just as excited to get my hands on this one after I read the first one. This continues the story of Jamie and Drea. Drae is starting to lose hope in the Phoenix but Jamie still feels the fire. I did not take me long to see that Drea was not the focus of this one but Jamie has now been thrust forward. I love this take on the Authurian legend. I am not so sure about Adhomai thinking that he is the reborn Arthur after some healing powers were restored. It is turns into a worldwind adventures, but I still have a lot of questions that I need answered. I hope book 3 will answer them.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
