Excalibur has been pulled from the stone, but what does it mean? Arriane (aka Ryan) DuLac’s got bigger problems—as student president, she’s got to put on the Prom. While the Wizard Council debates their next move, she leaves the craziness behind and heads home. But she can’t hide forever. Sooner than she’d like Merlin (aka Matt) has her chasing mermaids on the trail of the Fisher King in Greece. The wounded King, defeated by Merlin’s brother, Vane, in the past holds the key to save the future. On the journey, Ryan begins to realize the friends she thought she knew, she may not know at all. At a time of shifting alliances, she must decide whose side she’s on—the brother who struggles to do right or the brother who dares to break the rules? And Ryan must decide who she is—a regular or a champion? One wrong decision and her family falls apart. One wrong decision and the world falls apart. No pressure.
I always love it when I find a new author I like. Though these are ebook only books (as far as I know they aren’t in print) so I can only recommend them to people who have an e-reader. My Merlin Awakening was good, but not as good as the first I felt. Though I am interested to see what comes next and I have already started Book 3. I’m so sick of the love triangles though. Does every teen book HAVE to have a triangle? It’s to the point where I hope they both tell her to take a hike. Don’t get me wrong I like Ryan, there really isn’t anything to like except her indecision in who she loves. I like that Grey stepped up in this book. He was obnoxious in book one, but I really liked him in this book. It will be really interesting to see how the series ends. I also really like how they tie in all the Greek mythology. It gives everything a new take.
