The Iron Locket (Book One of the Risen King)

ISBN Number: 

Arthur Pendragon spent centuries in blissful nothingness, until the day the four queens banded together to raise him from the dead. Along with his twelve most talented knights, he leads the warring armies of Faery against the greatest enemy they have ever known: one of their own. Aiofe Callaghan comes from a long line of faery hunters. Hired by one of the faery queens, they protect the human world from chaos and destruction. But when Aiofe stumbles through an open door into the land of Faery, she discovers the job isn't as simple as it seems, nor is she. 

This is a  great new take on the Arthur revival story! The Iron Locket has faeries, the Knights of the Round Table, new faeries, and a few new twists on the original Camelot stories, as well as a faery hunter with a complicated family history and a knife. The story is fast, the characters intriguing, the romance quick to start, and the war begins almost from the beginning.  Many plot threads are left open, leaving the reader guessing what will happen next.  The reader is drawn in immediately and will be screaming in frustration when they reach the final pages and realize it ends in a cliff hanger!  The Iron Locket is worth the quick read and should top any to-read stack that involves Arthur.
