Humans are the enemy! That's what Rick's been taught to believe by the Fey Folk who stole him. Taken to the magical realm of Avalon, he's been trained - alongside other kids like him - into an elite force of warriors. When rumours start that a new generation of knights are re-forming the Round Table to attack Avalon, the Fey entrust Rick with a mission: go to Earth, find the knights, and stop them. Simple, right?
Well, not exactly No training could prepare him for the shock of being a modern teenager. And when he discovers that the Fey have been lying to him, Rick has to ask: if humans aren't the enemy - who is?
Cosa pensano gli ascoltatori di Young Knights of the Round Table
Julia Golding is a gifted writer and I loved her previous books, especially the Cat Royal series. This is the reason why I wanted to read this new one.
This book however was a big disappointment. Here are the reasons:
- it seems to be an imitation of the Artemis Fowl genre, without the wit and geniality
- the reader is terrible, especially when reading teenager voices (kids aged 12/13). He lowers his voice to a raucous tone making them sound like lifetime smokers
- the story is relatively boring from the beginning.
I did not make it past chapter 3 and returned the book.
