Swords of Avalon

by Kinley MacGregor (pseudonym of Sherrilyn Kenyon)

‘Lords of Avalon’ series Book #1

The new king of Camelot wears no shining armor: Arthur and his knights have fallen and a new king rules.

In the darkest forest…

A scared, forsaken youth has become the most powerful – and feared – man in the world. Ruthless and unrestrained, Kerrigan has long ceased to be human.

In the heart of London…

A spririted peasant mired in drudgery, Seren dreams of becoming her own woman, but never expects that by fleeing her fate, she will meet her destiny.

Their worlds are forever changed…

Kerrigan’s goal is simple: barter or kill Seren to claim Arthur’s Round Table. Yet she is the one person who holds no fear of him. More than that, her nobility sparks something foreign inside him. In his nether realm, kindness is weakness and a king who harbors any sort of compassion loses his throne.

Four countless centuries, Kerrigan has lived alone in the shadows. Now Seren’s courage has forced him into the light that will bring either salvation to both of them … or death.

Review: June 6th, 2006. I agree, Trina, that she did spend a lot of time on background info, but I believed it was necessary. I don’t think the second book, which will be out in November 2006, will have much, considering how much Sword of Darkness gave us about the past. She might recap, but not full out.

I adore Sherrilyn, love her writing style. She creates colourful characters that you love to love and love to hate. As any of the best authors that I love, she makes me laugh, cry, and get right down pissed, and I adore her for that. 

LOL, what I found funny was the quote on the cover of the book. She explains that she had said it to her editor as a joke, and since the editor thought it was a brilliant idea, they put her quote on the cover. LMAO, I burst out laughing when I read it.

I adore every single one of Sherrilyn’s books, whether she writes as Sherrilyn or Kinley, and I can’t wait for the next installment of Lords of Avalon.

(My fave part is in the ending ~ the mischief Kerrigan causes Agravain. LOL, I loved it!)
