Book: Henge ( Le Fay Series)
Written By: Realm Lovejoy
Released: November 11th 2014
Modern-day Camelot. Where knights no longer carry swords. Magic is dangerous. And those who seek control are not to be trusted.
Sixteen-year-old Morgan le Fay is a fire user. An ordinary girl with an extraordinary skill, she has the ability to create and command fire at will. Her dream is to become the Maven—the right hand of the future King Arthur. In the chance of a lifetime, Morgan is selected to join Arthur’s Round, an elite group of young magic users from which the new Maven will be chosen.
Along with the other fire, water, and wind users in Arthur’s Round, Morgan is rigorously trained and tested. The handsome Merlin, a brilliant water user, takes a particular interest in her. Is his friendship to be trusted, or is Merlin simply trying to win the position of Maven for himself? Among the many rivals Morgan faces is the current Maven, Mordred, who seems determined to see her fail.
But Morgan has a secret—years ago, her mother was executed for using fire magic, and Morgan’s desire for justice makes her more than ready to take on the challenge before her. Can she prevail in Camelot’s tests of survival and magic? Only time—and Morgan’s powerful fire—will tell.
‘Mother always told me to be wary of people with two faces.’
I just finished Henge before sitting down to write this, and I REALLY want the second book right now. What an glorious mix of Arthurian legend and fantasy. Only – This takes place in the UK, and there is technology such as guns, phones, cars. ‘Hogwarts meets Panem’ was the first thing that caught my eye when people described this book, and indeed it was just as amazing as both of those series.
Morgan was such a great, strong female lead, even though she has quite the interesting, deep past. Merlin had me wondering up until the very end if he was a friend or foe. Even right now, I don’t know what I think of him. He keeps me wondering, curious, wanting to know what the heck is going on with him. I love that about a character. Mystery is an attractive feature to anyone.
Most of all, I want to know more about the king, and how the kingdom is being lead forward. Something does not seem right, which once again, left me wanting to know more. ( But not in a negative way. )
I loved the writing style and the story, it was just what I needed to get me out of the reading slump I was in. I can’t wait for the second book, and I will also be checking out Clan, another book written by Realm Lovejoy.
