When Ari crash-lands on Old Earth and pulls a magic sword from its ancient resting place, she is revealed to be the newest reincarnation of King Arthur. Then she meets Merlin, who has aged backward over the centuries into a teenager, and together they must break the curse that keeps Arthur coming back. Their quest? Defeat the cruel, oppressive government and bring peace and equality to all humankind.
This book was a really enjoyable read — I can’t wait to read the sequel! While the book covers harsh topics (like a universe controlled by a greedy corporation in what’s definitely a capitalistic nightmare), the characters are all funny and their own complicated part of the story. With twists taken from the well known King Arthur story, this book definitely is its own with a great plot and witty jokes.
