"Interesting twist to the Arthurian Legend!"
When she was but twelve years old, Lady Mary "Molly"
Pendragon was sent from her home and her mother when enemy
forces attacked her father's castle. Well, the man she
thought of as her father anyway. Turns out Molly's father
is none other than Arthur Pendragon and it was to him
Molly's mother sent her. And so Molly grew up with her
father and trained with Merlin. See, Molly is a witch and
with Merlin's training, she eventually became a warrior for
the Light, along with her best friend Adria and other
Now we jump forward to the present day and Molly is still
fighting for the Light. Of course, most of the other
warriors are gone now, including Adria. At least Adria had
her chance at love and even managed to have a child,
Adrian, who also had a son, Collin. Right now, Molly is
tracking down a little worm of a man who stole something
from her. Naturally, she does find him and he admits to the
theft and even tells Molly who he sold his ill-gotten gains
to. The items stolen were the Avalon Diaries, something
Molly was entrusted to keep safe. So when Molly finds out
who the worm sold the Diaries to, she is astounded for it
was none other than Collin Remington—Adria's grandson. Now
when Collin's father died, the surviving Light Bearers felt
it would be best for Collin to remain with his mother and
so they bound his powers until he would commit one selfless
act. When Collin shows up at the boarding house Molly is
currently living at, she is a bit stunned and after
battling some vampires, Lachlan—a leprechaun—and Morgause—
Molly's aunt and another warrior of the Light—show up. Of
course, when they go to retrieve the Avalon Diaries, they
find them gone! Stolen right out of Collin's safe. At this
point, Merlin shows up and transports them all back to
Camelot. Seems the timeline has been messed up and it's up
to Molly, Morgause, Lachlan and Collin to fix it.
Will Molly and her merry band be able to fix the timeline?
Who exactly stole the Avalon Diaries and why? Will Molly be
able to retrieve them? Is it wrong to feel such an
attraction to her best friend's grandson?
LADY PENDRAGON is a thrilling historical fantasy romance.
Marly Mathews keeps the action going nonstop. Have to
admit, I've always loved the Arthurian Legends and have
read a lot of stories about them. Marly Mathews definitely
puts her own twist on the legend and makes it her own. We
have all the normal characters from Arthur and Gwen to
Merlin, Lancelot, King Lot, and Mordred, but the author has
put a different slant to them all. And Arthur having a
daughter is an unusual, but quite interesting, spin to the
tale. The different settings in this story are all very
realistic and somewhere I would love to visit, from the
dragon stronghold to the isle of Avalon, and even Tintagel.
All in all, a very enjoyable tale and one I highly
recommend to all lovers of Arthurian Legend.
