Publisher's Summary

King Arthur as you've never imagined! This bold, sizzling YA retells the popular legend with the once and future king as a teenage girl - and she has a universe to save.

I've been chased my whole life. As a fugitive refugee in the territory controlled by the tyrannical Mercer corporation, I've always had to hide who I am. Until I found Excalibur.

Now, I'm done hiding.

My name is Ari Helix. I have a magic sword, a cranky wizard, and a revolution to start.

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. 

No pressure. 

"All hail this worthier-than-ever, fresh, and affirming reincarnation of the legendary king and her round table of knights which dazzles with heroic flair, humor, and suspense." (Kirkus)

"This epic space adventure...is a must-have." (School Library Journal)

Only Arthurian legend I’ve been able to enjoy, so miracles can happen with a new enough story to make me change my mind
