This book's greatest strength lies in it's memorable characters. The authors have created a host of well developed personalities that keep you coming back for more. And Saladin is the kind of bad guy that you never forget! Could not put this book down!

An inventive retelling of the story of king Arthur, now reborn into modern America. Not predicable, but always enjoyable, this novel explores how one persons life can make a difference. And you'll love Saladin as the villain.

Not worth the energy or money. Predictable plot, no character development very shallow read does not hold the interest

I was enjoying the book until it started to delve into aspects of Christianity which I found distasteful. At one point it insinuated that Christ was not the true Messiah. I stopped reading after that and deleted from my library.
