A delightful spin to an old tale! What a fun series! It was nice to catch up with the characters I'd met in book one, and to meet new ones! I don't have one particular character that spoke to me most, but rather, I enjoyed the contrast in personalities. My favorite part was the aliens and their worlds. I thought the author did a fantastic job with her descriptions and I was certainly intrigued by her vision of extraterrestrial life. I thought the way she presented thoughts, telepathy, visions, and speech was helpful in my understanding of the events and conversations as well as identifying what communication was being utilized. Well done sci-fi. It's an interesting take on an old story, reinventing it to a fresh and modern adventure.
Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite The Revenge of Excalibur by author Sahara Foley is the sequel to The Secret of Excalibur. Both novels centre on a reworking of the Arthurian legend in a modern day science fiction setting. Whilst book one focused on central hero Arthur Merlin and his escapades with government agents and psychic researchers, book two centres on his daughter, Pam Breckenridge, who has reached the age of twenty-seven without ever finding a balance between her powerful psychic skills and living a normal life. So when Pam turns out to be completely instrumental in releasing an ancient power called the Shalit in order to rescue her long-estranged father, she takes up the mantle and is ready to save him. The only rub is that the Shalit is a very attractive human male, and his obvious talents are going to make Pam’s mission a lot more complicated. I think it’s safer to bill The Revenge of Excalibur as a book from the weird fiction genre rather than sci-fi from the start. With that in mind, readers can enjoy the bizarre twists of Foley’s unpredictable plot with a tongue in cheek attitude, laughing at the strange intrusions from aliens, brains, and the like. The Arthurian legend is borrowed from, though not overused, and this is by no means a true adaptation of that story, but the elements which do appear are timely and useful in moving the plot along. The characters are also larger than life, making for dynamic action in both the adventure and romance senses of the word. If you don’t take it too seriously, you’ll love it.

Pamela is alone in this world. When her father left with an alien woman 27 years ago, she did not understand what was happening around her.

The space ship tells her that her father has been imprisoned and only she can save him; she is ready to do anything for him. However, before that, she must release Shalit from its prison inside the Excalibur, the mysterious sword. If she releases this evil Shalit, the world and the entire universe will be in danger; however, if she does not, her father is as good as dead. The only way to ensure the safety of her father and universe is by controlling Shalit once it is out. But can she do that? Is she strong enough? Although I have not read the first novel in the series, I had no issues with reading this one. It was intense, filled with thrills and action, and I simply loved it. It literally took me a couple of hours to read because I did not want to put it down. I wanted to read on and see what happens next. The writing style is perfect for the theme. Sarah Foley made sure that the sci-fi elements of the novel did not become too ridiculous to be true. I could picture everything. An excellent, mind-boggling read. This is a bona fide 5 star novel!
