Lance is a hero.

With his friend Megan, he does his best to survive high school in a world that doesn't always make sense, and is almost never fair.

When their school receives a donation from an anonymous millionaire, Lance and Megan find themselves on an international field trip to England, where the two receive an irresistible call to a supernatural adventure that could change their destinies, and the destiny of the country, forever.

Together with three mysterious adults who all claim to be wizards, Lance must safe-guard the legendary Excalibur. Traveling into a strange parallel world and keeping his friends, new and old, safe from harm at the hands of a malevolent army of magical soldiers, Lance discovers the truth about heroism and the content of his character.

My Rating: 4.5 Stars 

I'm a big fan of King Author Retellings and I was giddy to get my hands on this one. 

Reading you can tell something big is going to happen, there is dark undertone that puts you on edge. I wan't disappointed.  The action was wicked, dark and a little quick for my taste, but still great at the same time. The story telling was spot on, though there are some flash backs that caught me off guard, and made Lace out to be a call ass jerk, but it did make sense in the end. 

In all I was impressed with this retelling and I'm hoping there is more to come. 

Happy Reading. :) 

Alexander Charalambides was born in London and grew up in Berkshire.

As a freelance writer Alexander enjoys storytelling just as much as editing and analysis, but often takes time off to enjoy wind surfing, do the sickest of motorcycle flips, wrestle with deadly animals and lie about his hobbies.
