    This is a terrific refreshing retelling of the Arthurian legend

    In the Crystal Cave Water Goddess Coventina better known by her beloved Merlin as Viviane fears her loved one will soon fade into nothingness. The only way Merlin may be saved is if King Arthur avoids the darkness, but the monarch is depressed over his wife and best friend which expedites his going into the abyss.

    Increasingly desperate Viviane finally sees a slight possibility in twenty-first century photojournalist Isabel Cantelli after her car plummets off an Oklahoma bridge when she avoided a chipmunk. Viviane fast forwards Isabel into Camelot as a countess to seduce Lancelot away from Guinevere. However, instead of Lancelot, Isabel is attracted to King Arthur who wants her too, but a deal is a deal or is it.

    This is a terrific refreshing (hard to believe something new can be created from Camelot) retelling of the Arthurian legend as Isabel turns the romantic triangle into a quadrangle. The key cast is fully developed so that the reader will believe that the Sooner has landed in the midst of the Camelot threesome. Fast-paced fans will enjoy this charming romantic fantasy as Isabel sums up the plot quite nicely when she informs Arthur that he is better for her heart than a cardio workout.

    Great Read!

    I loved this book! I was just recently introduced to the Goddess series and enjoy them. I found this one so entertaining, I couldn't put it down! I bought it both in hard copy and digital format so I can read it over and over wherever I happen to be. I highly recommend this book!

    Terrible!

    Wow, this one was awful! I've read all of her books, including the others in the Goddess Summoning series, and this one was the worst by far. Most of her other books are at least entertaining, if not always literary gold. I had high hopes for one based out of Camelot (one of my favorite tales) but this was pure trash. There was no tension, no danger, no setbacks. It seemed like Cast was phoning it in, and the story was frankly silly and vapid. The characters were more like caricatures, and even the 2 possible villains were miraculously redeemed with zero effort. I want my money and my wasted time back!

    Awful waste of Time

    I have read all of P.C. cast's Goddess series books and really enjoyed them. So when I heard she was writing one based loosely on Arthurian legend I was super excited. When I really started to delve into the book I was sadly disappointed when the story felt rushed and main plot points of the storyline felt random and did not seem to fit. I did not connect with the characters as they seemed shallow and silly. I Would suggest sitting this one out.

    Horrible!

    I want my money back. I would have enjoyed this book more if it had cost a dollar, or maybe even had been free. What happened? She's annoying, he's a whimp, and the cheese level is at an all-time high. The story got old real quick. I was excited for this book to come out. Very disappointed.

    What a Disappointment!!!!!

    This book was a waste of time. The charathers was all over the place. The hero was a walk all over him wimp. And the heroine couldnt keep it in her head that she was in the past and act like it. There was no action at all. It was borrrrrring!!! The steamy parts was not even interesting! The ending was so boring I almost feel asleep reading it. It was a waste of money!

    I have read all of P.C's books including all of the Goddess ser

    I have read all of P.C's books including all of the Goddess series but this one was horrid. The story line could have been amazing. However I did not find one characters that i could respect at all. they are supposed to live on neighboring lands you would think that someone would have said there is no way that things are that different. I had to skip almost entire chapters because of how many different ways they can say I Love you... Oh come on.... At least i can say i finished the series that is the only good thing about this book

    Goddess Summoning Series

    Well I have just finished the Goddess of Love book. In my opinion I loved it just as allthe other Goddess books. It has meaning and love and a story that pulls you into the world she is writting. I laughed along with the characters as though I was there sharing their giggles. I do hope she continues to write more of these books. The are fun and exciting to read.

    Worst. Book. EVER.

    I cannot even finish this. Long winded, juvenile, no plot development, unlikeable characters, main character arrives in Camelot and immediately physically attacks crushes son because she is mortally offended that he is mean to his father, whom she JUST met - what? If that didnt make much sense and sounded really stupid, it's because it doesnt and it is. This is truly the worst book I have ever read. Do not waste your time.

    Honestly ridiculous

    This book is so different from Goddess of the Rose and Goddess of Spring as to be written by another author entirely. Those had well developed characters, motivations and plot lines as well as some surprising and enjoyably fresh twists on myths. This one has characters that aren't only juvenile (not expected since the heroine is in her 30's) but practically cartoon characters. It has no plot and is so silly in its dialogue and scene shifts as to stretch even those wanting escapism. I am sorry I spent the 12.99 on this, although I do recommend the books I mentioned in the first sentence.

    dissappointed

    I thought this book was ok but not up to par with the rest of the series. I didn't connect with the characters of this one like i did the other books in the series. And the ending had me surprised -SPOILER ALERT-, i mean shouldn't the ending be happy for the woman and the man and not just the woman?

    Not the best of the Summoning Series

    I was really excited to read Goddess of Legend. I gave enjoyed all of P.C. Cast's Goddess books. Goddess of Legend had the same type of premise -- goddess transports woman from current times back in time to correct a problem. Plus when I found it to be based loosely on Arthurian legend I was super excited. However the story line was silly, and while your waiting for the usual suspense of danger the main characters have to deal with, you end up reading right over it and thinking "oh, that was it?" the story was rushed and rather plain. Most of her novels do put emphasis on empowering women, which is great, but this novel made it annoying and out of place The only good thing i got out of this book were a few laughs which would have been fine if that's what this series was about. I would defiantly not recommend reading this.

    A Modern Gal in King Arthur's Court

    Anyone familiar with the books of P. C. Cast knows that much of the fun of reading her work comes from her unique retelling of commonly known mythological tales. While this wasn't my favorite of her novels--it felt a bit rushed in the beginning, and I never got a strong sense of the protagonist's life before she was transported to Camelot--the book was an engaging read and certainly worth my time and money.

    Such a Disappointment

    I absolutely love P.C. Cast and all her novels, but this one was so out of place compared to her others. Most of her novels do put emphasis on empowering women, which is great, but this novel made it annoying and out of place. Arthur is so needy that he needs to be sent back to high school. The plot moved to fast without detail, and the plot wasn't even that good. I still love her writing, but this book was the worst of the series hands down.
