    2. 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 turne [...]

    3. 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 Excalibur Rising series and my voluntary review of a free copy.

    4. In the end, this is a real feel good story. As an Arthurian novel, this is one of the best I have encountered. I read every one I can find because I write in that genre myself. I read this novel with eager anticipation. Maybe this would be the next good one I was hoping for. I was not disappointed. There is so much about this story that advances the hope and wishes that the tale of King Arthur and his knights might have a strong element of truth to them. I believe that behind every legend there [...]

    5. The legend came to life.Amazing tale, terrific explanation of Camelot! A really wonderful story with excellent character development. From the beginning to the end the legend and the characters draw you in. By the end you KNOW the people. I rarely buy books but this one is so good, I have to read more by this author and more in this saga. Lead on Lady Eileen! On to Camelot!

    6. I really liked the book, I loved the characters even Mandretti (even though he was demanding as heck, but I guess that's the Las Vegas rich for you.)Todd and Violet were funny to read about especially Violet not using technology it seemed like she was too good of a person for it.I like how the hunted/ to search for Excalibur, King Arthur and the men of the Round Table. The book has some reality (modern age) and fantasy in it. I like it.

    7. This type of a novel is not, really, for me. I do not care for past history being "co-mingled" with the present. This story has to do with the search for King Arthur's Excalibur which brings the present with the past i.e. Camelot and King Arthur's return. I, did, in fact read the entire novel, however, I did skip certain portions for I wanted to end it.

    8. Unexpectedly entertaining!This was a surprisingly good read. At first it seemed to go at a slow pace but gradually picked up and then had so many surprises I was riveted to to the story. The characters were unexpectedly entertaining at times. The ending was especially surprising. I am now anxious to read the next book to find out what happens next.

    9. An enchanting bookThis was very interesting to get a glimpse of life in Arthurian times. Never a dull moment, but occasionally it took a moment to really the relationship of the characters. I would recommend it as a fun read.

    10. Two of my favorite things. Time travel and the Arthurian legend. This is such an imaginative combination of the two! I could not put this book down, it was exciting and I was really interested in how the many characters would come together.

    11. Different take on an old legendGreat read! I'm glad this book was free to read and already has the next book published. It ends with a cliffhanger and definitely makes you want to read the continuing story. Very few spelling or grammatical errors.

    12. Murder, mystery, parallel worlds, King Arthur and his Knights, Excalibur returned to his hand-held war must be won, Mordred must be defeated! I LOVED IT!!!! Great characters and storyline dynamics make this a fabulous read for anyone who loves the legends.

    13. I enjoyed learning more about the myth of Arthur and the round table. Time travel was interesting too and the way the myth was tied into modern day.

    14. Great book! I love the story line and the way she brought back King Arthur and his Knights of the round table!

    15. Very good. Interesting take on the Arthurian Legend. At first I thought I might not like it. It didn't take long to draw me in.

    16. EnchantmentHistory combined with the mystical legend of Avalon and king arthur. Present time inter mingled with tales of medical old.

    17. I had to stop reading this story because I ran into a cuss word. I don't remember if this was Christian fiction or not, but I don't read stories with cussing in them regardless.

    18. Myth or factI was surprised to read this modern day novel with a portal to the 12th century. A different approach to a King Arthur tale and quite entertaining!

    19. Excalibur Rising is a very fun fantasy-history novel. It is set in modern times, but features a terrific backdrop which involves the legend of King Authur and his sword, Excalibur. This adds great excitement. I thoroughly enjoyed every page right to the dramatic and satisfying ending. The plot is full of twists and turns. We are offered marvelously entertaining descriptions of modern day Vegas, the Florida Keys, ancient Britain and modern day Britain.The characters are wonderfully absorbing. We [...]

    20. A Great storyI could not put it down. It had every thing a great story should have. I will have to wait for the next book.
