This is a great story, taking the Arthurian legend into the modern day. The events are delightfully unbelievable, yet they spin together well and the flow and logic is excellent. That is what such fantasy should be all about, and the author is very inventive.
I loved the various levels of baddies, from fireborn, who are naked, blue, resurrected zombies, to the ‘berserkers’ or ‘goonies’, to the regulars, who are drug-induced, stop-at-nothing, fireborn facsimilies. They are all dangerous, but can be tackled in various ways.
The intuitive consultant, who know more than even he thinks, is the main protagonist, Elliot Everett-Jones. His brother features heavily, although not heavily enough in my opinion, and there is much conflict between the pair.
There are many parallels between the contemporary characters and those of Arthurian legend. This makes for an enjoyable read.
The story is great, and the full-on action is gripping. The conclusion is kept me awake until I had finished reading. As I closed the book, my final thought was, “There is plenty of scope for a sequel.” I look forward to that.
The only problem that I had was that there are still lots of irritable typos throughout the text. They distract me from the flow of the story. I have contacted the author and promised to send him those that I managed to record.
As I say, I look forward to the sequel.
