Wish someone would review this...there aren't even any editorial reviews. I am tempted to buy it but the info about it is so minimal? My only worry is that it might be 'romance'.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Shadow of Excalibur by Joan Upton Hall
The Shadow of Excalibur is the second in this futuristic suspense series by Joan Upton Hall. The Shadow of Excalibur is set in a post-plague world, where the new leader is the ¿reincarnation¿ of King Arthur. At the start of the book, years have passed since the plague but problems are not over. As in Camelot, everyday life in this new world has unexpected, sometimes horrific, turns and lives are tested to determine the true mettle. I enjoyed the story and the characters. The plot is suspenseful with a lot of action and the characters are multi-dimensional. Hall brings in some fantasy-touched characters in the Truthers. The Truthers can read minds, which is an interesting twist when they¿re used in court and when they are advisors to the King. The farther I got in the book, the faster I read. I assume there will be another in the series, and I look forward to reading it. Hall has a unique idea in recreating the King Arthur story set in a modern, post-apocalyptic world.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
