The Book Knights: An Arthurian Fantasy by J.G. McKenney


Hello readers,

Spoiler free review


Thank you, NetGalley for the chance to read this ebook for free in exchange for an honest review.

As I have previously mentioned I have a fascination with History and myths and legends, through books, tv or my latest guilty pleasure podcasts. This book was a good match for me as it was a retelling of the Arthur tales.

The introduction to this books world broke me and I do not ever wish to ever travel to this world at that time. The beautifully descriptive writing makes this world an easy to imagine and makes the opening that much harder hitting (no spoilers!).  But reading is a crime in this world! (not a spoiler) 

The Book Knights is an Arthurian tale with all the characters you know and love with wonderfully inventive name play (the myths and legends geek in me laughed and loved them).   The story was effortless to read,  the old myths and legends that I enjoy being rebuilt in a captivating new dystopian world with new characters and old characters being reinvented was perfect.

Shout out to the the author J.G. McKenney for managing to get all the facts and small details together perfectly in this story, for me anyway. This book is everything I could ever hope for in a good story, it made me laugh, cry, and cheer. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this story and if you love fantastical tales or fantasy read this book.
