grail quest review
a totally awesome book for kids and teens who have sense of adventure and intrest in the holy grail and king arthur. its a tale about how kids saved camelot from king arthurs evil half sister morgian le fay. it also shows that girls in this book are not just items with hearts to be one by 'brave' but totally senseless nights.Was this review helpful?

A fun young adult Arthurian fantasy
King Arthur declares that he and 9*3 knights will seek the Holy Grail. In Camelot, a gala occurs to celebrate the upcoming quest. However, something strange occurs when all the adults abruptly fall asleep while all the children remain awake adding to the discomfit of those not asleep is the fact Merlin is missing. Gerard squire to Sir Rhaymond d¿Abmont realizes an enchantment has occurred, but that the children must pretend all is normal or their enemies will take advantage of the vulnerability.------ Gerard, Queen Guinevere¿s handmaiden Ailis, and Newt the horse boy know only Merlin can reverse the spell. They begin a trek to find the missing wizard unaware that a malevolent force will kill anyone who tries to prevent the destruction of Camelot.------ GRAIL QUEST is a fun young adult Arthurian fantasy that looks at Camelot from an entirely different perspective as children must save the day. Though his appearances are limited, Merlin steals the show as everyone knows not to mess with someone who can turn you into a rat in some ways he seems like the Merlin in the Disney cartoon The Sword in the Stone. The three heroes are terrific with differing personalities as the squire and the horse boy squabble all the time while the handmaiden tries to keep the peace. Targeting the Potter crowd, Laura Anne Gilman enchants her audience with her version of the Knights of the Round Table.------ Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
