Overview

The Seven Swords have been united, and Artie Kingfisher and his knights are ready to take their place at the Round Table. . . .

What began as a video game has become all too real for Artie Kingfisher. He has escaped the evil Lordess Morgaine, reclaimed Excalibur, and finally opened the gate to the legendary isle of Avalon, where he will take his rightful place as King Arthur reborn. Now Artie and his friends—each with a mythical sword in hand—are ready to become the new Knights of the Round Table. In Avalon they are safe, but their fight is far from over. . . .

Reeling from her defeat, Morgaine still plots to overthrow Artie and claim Excalibur as her own, while Merlin's blind quest for power grows wilder and more dangerous. In preparation for the greatest battle of his life, Artie must discover the secrets of an ancient and mysterious tool called Scarffern and recover nothing less than the mythical Holy Grail. And he may soon find that his final fight won't be against an enemy—but against someone who he used to call friend.

In this exhilarating final chapter of Otherworld Chronicles, Artie and his sister, Kay, will struggle for their right to return home, save their father and their friends, and of course rescue the worlds themselves. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“The draw here is the action, and there is plenty of that. As Artie dodges fire spells and enchanted swords, gamers will find themselves reaching for their controllers while they await the series’ next installment.”
ALA Booklist
“An entertaining quest fantasy—laid back but far from nonviolent, sprinkled with hints of hidden agendas, and juiced with enough creativity to carry readers happily into future episodes.”
Kirkus Reviews
2013-10-01
In the conclusion to the three-volume Otherworld Chronicles, King Artie Kingfisher and his New Knights of the Round Table fight Merlin to control the fate of the world. In a frenetic, action-packed tale, Artie is King Arthur Pendragon the Second, the medieval King Arthur's latter-day genetic sibling, poised to battle Merlin. The adventure opens on the legendary island of Avalon. Merlin is plotting an attack to punish Morgaine for imprisoning him, but he can't go to Avalon without being invited by Artie, which Artie is not about to do since Merlin has gone over to the dark side. "Very Darth Vader. Creepy," as Artie says. Besides, Merlin wants to kill Artie, but if he does, he'll never get to Avalon. Whew! So much going on, including witches and wizards, dragons, giant prehistoric creatures, Excalibur, the Holy Grail, purple knights, battle-filled days and one of the most memorable creatures in recent fantasy literature--a 60-foot-long Questing Beast, created, with 100 Questling accomplices, to battle Artie's loyal dragons. Battle scenes are well-drawn, and there are enough of them to keep readers flipping the pages all the way to the series' rewarding end. A satisfying adventure and series closer. (Adventure. 8-12)

    I did not want this series to end. I really hope that this author comes out with more books. I would love to see his take on other mythical characters. The ending surprised me a little because I expected the setting to be the opposite of what it was (there are 2 main settings I am referring to. Artie's world or Arthur's world). However I can understand why the author chose the ending he did. This book really brought the legend of Arthur into today's world. The Holy Grail, Avalon, and of course Morgaine were all in this final installment. I liked the music key versus a door key "clue". This is definitely a book that I will be reading with my nieces and nephew! I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
