Six months ago, seventeen-year-old Rustin Hall thought he knew what he wanted. Then he travelled back in time with his best friend, Mila, to the world of Camelot, knights and magic, and everything changed.

Now Rustin is the artisan, and he knows his future because it's written in the past.

But Rustin's plan to build the first temple for the Gorian druids is cut down like the trees he talks to when the Round Table reveals the name of the newest knight of Camelot: a name that carves fear and unrest into the other knights. With Mila now in danger, Rustin, along with his friends, James and Jalaya, goes on a quest to find her before a new malevolent evil gets there first. A necromancer is building an army of the dead, and they are coming for Arthur's daughter.

Rustin will join forces with a young would-be knight called Galahad, as his quest takes him into the very heart of the Arthurian legends he grew up reading. A quest that could be the end of the artisan's life, not just in Logres, but for good.

About the Author

Donna Hosie is a hybrid YA author (repped by Beth Phelan, The Bent Agency, NY) and full time geek. Part Potterhead, Ringer, Whovian and Sherlockian with sprinkles of Whedonite on top. If it's fantastical, she's in. Originally from England, Donna currently resides in Australia with her husband, three children, and a crazy Golden Retriever named Harry (after a certain boy wizard, of course)!

Donna's first foray into writing came about from her time working on a Harry Potter website. Warner Bros and EA Games asked her to be a fan consultant on the Order of the Phoenix computer game. Her reports and podcasts were relayed around the world as fans of the books patiently awaited the next installment. From writing reports, she turned to fan fiction, eventually writing her own time-traveling novels while studying for an BA(Hons) in Modern Languages.

Donna is the author of the RETURN TO CAMELOT trilogy, THE RING OF MORGANA (May 2014), THE DEVIL'S INTERN (Holiday House, October 2014) and THE DEVIL'S DREAMCATCHER (Holiday House, Fall 2015).

The Quest of the Artisan is told completely from Rustin's point of view. As such, we get the clueless teenager who is trying to be friendly with girls, but doesn't understand when they want to take it further. His eyes are set on Mila, and he misses her. He hopes that she will return to him soon, but doesn't know for sure. It appears that fate has an interest though, as things happen to make Mila return to Rustin's side when he least expects it. There is adventure, friendship, loyalty, and treachery afoot in this finale. Mila and Rustin don't actually get to spend that much time together as circumstances conspire for Rustin to find his own path. This is a brilliantly written book, that rounds off The Children of Camelot and The Return to Camelot series. It is a fresh and exciting take on the tales of King Arthur, Lady Morgana, Nimue, and the Fisher King, to name but some. With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, you can lose yourself in the tales of time gone by, told by people of the 21st century as they lived it. Completely enthralling and highly recommended by me. Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
