Book Review: Sword of Darkness by: Kinley Macgregor (RAT4)

Summary: A scared, forsaken youth has become the most powerful-and feared-man in the world. Ruthless and unrestrained, Kerrigan has long ceased to be human. A spirited peasant mired in drudgery, Seren dreams of becoming her own woman, but never expects that by fleeing fate, she will meet her destiny. Kerrigan’s goal is simple: barter or kill Seren to claim Arthur’s Round Table. Yet she is the one person who holds no fear of him. More than that, her nobility sparks something foreign inside him. In his nether realm, kindness is weakness and king who harbors any sort of compassion loses his throne. For countless centuries, Kerrigan has lived alone in the shadows. Now Seren’s courage has forced him into the light that will bring either salvation to both of them…or death.

So, I haven’t decided if  I only liked this book a little bit, or if the 17 hours of straight reading…with 8 more to go has hindered my ability to actually enjoy anything I read at this point. Oh well, I am going with it. I think this book was just ok, I finished it, which is more than I can say about the last pseudo-Arthurian legend book I have read lately (see Lucan) , so that is a step up. I liked how strong Seren is in this book, just doing what needed to be done when it needed to be done. I did not like how Kerrigan was all over the “I’m to evil for my shirt” role, it got pretty boring a little ways in. We know he had a crappy life and all…we got that, but he just would not let it go. Anyway, I like how Macgregor kept it closhish to the legends and added her own twist enough so that it didn’t resemble an insane babble of nothingness. As  I said, it was just ok. Sorry if this review or my last offends anyone…I apparently get grumpy when tired, lol. Enjoy!
