I must say that the myth of King Arthur and his Knights has always fascinated me, so I was immediately absorbed in the plot of this book and I couldn t put it down Such a page turner, I loved the tale of on the Ki
Indian Jones meets The Da Vinci Code Arthurian StyleBook one of Excalibur Rising is a bit like an Indian Jones adventure mixed with The Da Vinci Code , if Indian Jones had been a washed up, present day treasure hunter thrust into a quest to find Excalibur Filled with drama and adventure, this book is not another retelling of the Arthurian Legend, instead, it begins nine hundred years after Arthur has fallen at Camlann The king is still asleep and his people are awaiting his return, but that cannot happen without his sword.Most of book one takes place in modern day, beginning in Los Vegas with Marcus our once upon a time famous treasure hunter and his new employer a mafia boss obsessed with treasure , moving to Florida where they obtain the help of Violet a psychic with an uncanny ability to find things and end
I loved this twist on the King Arthur tale in this modern fantasy retelling Great characters and an absorbing plot Couldn t put it down.My Rating 5 stars Las Vegas hotel owner Mandretti collects artefacts, and ex TV personality and Dr Marcus Ryan finds them for him When Ryan s old university professor tells him he knows where the holy grail of history is Excalibur Ryan and Mandretti head to Florida Keys to seek the advice of mystic Violet With her ability to read the past of any object, soon Violet and Ryan are sent off to England to hunt down the famous sword.This book was great at exploring the unexpected Reimagining the legend of King Arthur s prophesied return to fit with missing historical documents to confirm the existence of Camelot and his knights, Hodgetts weaves an entertaining tale involving mobsters, academics, artefacts, murder and magic All characters were well defined, each an individual from the next the side characters held their own ground just as much as the main characters The twist Hodgetts gives to the Arthurian legends is an entertaining one, and seems entirely logical through her prose despite the inclusion of magical portals and parallel worlds.Th
This book took me by surprise because the author took a completely different slant to the story of King Arthur and I must admit that at the start of the book situated in America and of all places in Las Vegas, with a newscaster and a mafia sort of millionaire being interested in getting their hands on of all things Excalibur I was sure I was going to hate this book However, once they went to meet Violet the seer and Todd and they took a plane to England to follow up on some clues the tale turned than interesting to say the least
All the elements that make a fine story I really liked this book Time travel, Arthur and Camelot, dragons and griffins, all woven together with modern characters too Thus begins a treasure hunt for King Arthur s mysterious sword Excaliber to delight medieval era fans This is book1 of the
First I want to say I did not buy a copy of Excalibur Rising Book One Ms Hodgetts gave me a copy to read with no obligation for or preconception expectation of a positive GoodReads or Review Excalibur Rising was an interesting book in many ways It was, for the most part, well written, though some areas when moving back and forth between characters seemed out of place The characters were often simplistic and even stereotypical at times, though this did not detract from the story being told The best part of the book was the dialogue, which was realistic I m not sure if this book had a dedicated editor or if it was just proofed well There were only a few spelling or grammatical mistakes, yet it did not have the feel of a fully edited book It isn t that I didn t enjoy the novel, because I did Unfortunately, like so many self published books today, it just did not have that feel of a professionally edited tome or of an experienced, polished author.The main reason I chose to read this book is that I am an amateur scholar and lover of the Arthurian legend I have held screen names involving Merlin and attend Renaissance Faires in full wizard regalia The book had one of the most interesting slants on the origins of the King Arthur legend which I had not read before and actually makes sense when you suspend disbelief required when you read any sci fi fantasy book I look forw
