An ancient evil rises. An ancient warrior awakens.
In an age clouded by legend, Gawain was one of King Arthur's greatest knights. When he awakens centuries after the fall of Camelot, he faces his most daunting quest yet - the search for his missing companions. His hope is that Tamsin Greene, the alluring historian at Medievaland Theme Park, can help him. Then he senses the magic within her. Gawain will now have to trust a witch - and his own heart - to rouse the knights of the Round Table and save humanity from a faery onslaught.
I don’t usually read King Arthur-type books but this sounded good so I started it about 11:00 last evening and read until 2:00 then got up today and started it again. I enjoyed this so much I hated to have it end. Mostly I think it was because of Napoleon Ryan’s reading. He is totally awesome. When a woman talks it sounds exactly like a woman. And he reads with such emotion. He has become my #1 favorite narrator. There’s other books in this series but they aren’t on audible so I think I’ll pass on them. Without Napoleon Ryan I don’t think I’d enjoy them as much.
This was about Merlin putting King Arthur and the knights of the round table in a deep sleep. Unfortunately, something went wrong and the slept for centuries. The first one to wake up in this century was Sir Gawain and he met Tamsin, who was an historian, to help him find King Arthur’s tomb because Arthur’s evil sister Morgan LaFaye and her just-as-evil son Mordred were about to try to take over the mortal realm.
Gawain had a hard time with Tamsin at first because Tamsin was a powerful witch and Gawain’s mother was a powerful witch who saw nothing wrong with killing someone just for the sake of killing, and his mother was the sister to Morgan LaFaye, so he thought all witches were evil but he really needed Tamsin to find Arthur and the knights.
I was surprised by this book. I had never read a Harlequin Nocturne before and I thought it would be a clean story. I couldn’t have been more wrong. There were 2 or 3 explicit sex scenes. However, there was no swearing. I guess authors think there’s nothing wrong with describing everything sexual going on BUT don’t swear. Crazy!
As to the narration: Napoleon Ryan is awesome. What more can I say?
