In this modern Arthurian, 17 year-old Boston high schooler Arriane, aka Ryan, DuLac just found out the guy she’s been crushing on, hot biker Matt, is a little older than he was letting on. In fact, he is really Merlin—the Merlin, King Arthur’s Merlin, the greatest wizard who ever lived. Frozen in a cave for over fifteen hundred years, he’s woken for a purpose. But Ryan’s not impressed. Tired of being a relationship loser, she’d rather kick his legendary behind.
Sure, the world has been crazy ever since the sword and the stone fell out of the sky like a meteor. But despite gruesome gargoyles, a deadly new world of magic, and the guy driving her crazy, Ryan knows that family is everything. Will Merlin sacrifice hers to save the world? Will she be able to stop him?
I loved the main character, Ryan. She was such a cool character! I love how she was constantly looking out for others, and how she wasn’t afraid to stand up for herself. Matt, aka Merlin, was cool too, but I didn’t like how he was always keeping secrets from Ryan. I wish he would have been more upfront with her. I also really liked Vane. I was intrigued by his character. One minute he was acting like a jerk, then the next he was being nice. I couldn’t figure him out.
There’s a love triangle in this book and usually I know right off the bat who I want the main character to choose, but in this story I’m having hard time choosing between Matt and Vane. Honestly, I’m not real sure who I want Ryan to choose. She has awesome chemistry with the both of them, so I think it will be interesting to see who she chooses in the upcoming books.
Overall, I thought this was a wonderful read and I honestly can’t wait to get my hands on the next book to see how this story continues!
