If you haven't broken the rules, have you really lived?
Excalibur has been pulled from the stone, but what does it mean? Arriane (aka Ryan) DuLac doesn’t really care. She's got bigger problems—as student president, she's got to put on the Prom. While the Wizard Council debates their next move, she leaves the craziness behind and heads home.
But she can’t hide forever. Sooner than she’d like Merlin (aka Matt) has her chasing mermaids on the trail of the Fisher King. The wounded King, defeated by Merlin’s brother, Vane, in the past holds the key to save the future.
On the journey, Ryan begins to realize the friends she thought she knew, she may not know at all. At a time of shifting alliances, she must decide whose side she’s on—the brother who struggles to do right or the brother who dares to break the rules? And Ryan must decide who she is—a regular or a champion?
One wrong decision and her family falls apart. One wrong decision and the world falls apart. No pressure
I absolutely love reading this book. It was very compelling and the love triangle wasn't to much. I really enjoyed reading the dynamics of the characters and the way their life's filled the pages.
I will say the ending of this book just about killed me! My Merlin Awakening gets a tab bit darker then the first book in this series, which I enjoyed immensely. I dont really know what it is about this type of book but they always seem to pull me right into the books pages and they don't let me go till way after I'm finished reading them.
The story line and writing flow perfectly in this story and I for one can't get enough of these characters. Ryan would have to be my favorite character in this story. The way the author weaves the details of Merlin and Camelot with today is just amazing!
I would suggest this book to any of my fellow book lovers.
