I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. A B.R.A.G. MEDALLION HONOREE
The Golden Sword – The Camelot Inheritance Book 1 is an excellent book geared towards children and teens between 10 and 14 years of age. It is, in fact, a book that most adults will love as well!
Set in Cornwall, England, three young friends find themselves encountering weird people and incidents that leave them very much aware of danger. Arthur Penhaligon is an intelligent and courageous young man. He loves to skateboard and hang out with his friends: Tamar and Nick. Nick loves to eat and is relaxed, carefree while Tamar is more disciplined and a determined young woman. Together the three encounter Crow Man and others who are weaving this paranormal like tale of time travelers and watchers.
Arthur, Tamar and Nick are on a quest to discover who the Crow Man is and what is going on but like for most children, the adults involved are mysterious and purposely vague. Together they fight the evil minded characters and rescue themselves from danger with a little help from their “odd” friends.
The following is an excellent example of her word crafting – leaving no doubt what the evil witch’s intent is:
“Understand this Arthur Penhaligon; it is of little use trying to escape. Your destiny is to be with us. She said this so quietly he was chilled. Her indifference was far more terrifying than her anger.”
It is clear early on that Arthur is the chosen one and has a very close tie with Camelot and King Arthur.
Morgan is impressive in her ability to tell a story and not only capture the reader’s attention but immerse them in the tale. The characters are very believable and realistic as is the interaction between all the characters.
I would not be surprised to see this talented author with her Arthur Penhaligon stories catapult into the literary world surpassing other successful writers such as J. K. Rowley or Rick Riordan.
If you have children or you yourself enjoy adventure and fantasy, this is an excellent choice. WordsAPlenty gives this B.R.A.G. Medallion honoree a 5 star rating.
