Summary of the Book:

Avalon, city of kings. Sky towers and airships dominate its skyline, dinosaurs roam freely throughout its parklands, and bounty hunters lurk in its shadows.

Guinevere has always lived on the outskirts of Avalon, working as an archivist in the central library. While corruption runs rampant throughout the city, her life is fairly mundane and predictable. That is, until she discovers the map to Excalibur and uncovers a plot to usurp the throne.

Finding herself on the run from these would-be king-slayers, Guinevere sets out to find the mythical sword. But with no one to trust and no where to hide, she must form an uneasy alliance with a pair of notorious bounty hunters.

“My future, and the future of Avalon are forward.”

Rise of Knight and Sword is the first installment of the One Sword Saga. It reimagines Arthurian legend in a steampunk fantasy world at the height of the 1920’s. Follow Guinevere and crew as they face off against smugglers, wild dinosaurs, hidden motives, and mistrust.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have always been a fan of the Arthurian legends so I was excited to get my hands on this book. This is the story a bit reinvented. I love steampunk and this mixed those fantasy and sci-fi elements together so well. I know this is a debut novel and it was wonderfully done. It is a different way of going on the journey for him to become king and actually sit on that throne and Guinevere has always been a little off putting in most of the tales, but I did not feel that in this book as much as I have in other ones. I like that she was smart and worked in a library. I want to read more by this author.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
