Knight of Darkness
by Kinley MacGregor (pseudonym of Sherrilyn Kenyon)
‘Lords of Avalon’ series Book #2
For countless centuries, I’ve been the assassin for the infamous Merlin, even though the woman who birthed me sits at the right hand of our enemy, Morgen le Fey. Now both omy mother and Morgen have decided that it’s time I take my place on their side of this conflict.
Normally, telling them no wouldn’t be a problem, except for the fact that the good guys I protect think that I’m an even worse demon than the ones we fight. Hmm, maybe they’re right. I have to say that I do enjoy maiming anyone who gets in my way.
At least until my mother gives me a simple choice: join Morgen’s Circle of the Damned or see an innocent woman die. I’m all for saving the innocent, but Merewyn isn’t as innocent as she seems. And she’s none too fond of the fact that her fate is in my dubious hands. Personally I’m all for taking the easy way out, but leaving her to Morgen is rough, even for me. Now the only way to save both ourlives is to face the evilest forces ever known – my mother and Morgen. And two people who know nothing of trust must learn to rely on each other or die: provided we don’t kill each other first.
Review: Finished Saturday, November 18th, 2006. Absolutely loved it! To quote again: Unputdownable! In the first chapter, I was instantly hooked, and I had a damn hard time trying to put this book down! The characters have distinct personalities, especially Varian, and I loved the banter between characters. I loved his ‘take shit from no one’ attitude, it suited him well. And the way he instigates… this book makes you laugh while holding your breath to see what happens next. And darn it, after checking out her website, I didn’t realize that she’d put an anthology in between Sword of Darkness and Knight of Darkness, titled Elemental. Looks like I’m hunting for another book! To the gang at Coles, see you Friday! LOL! As much as I’ve loved Angela Knight’s version of Avalon and Camelot, I adore Kinley’s just as much! This is definitely an awesome series!
