The Merlin Prophecy (Avalon High: Coronation #1)
Being a new student at Avalon High has been exciting for Ellie, to say the least—she's an honor student, a star on the track team, and, oh yeah, dating the super-hot class president, Will. Who also happens to be the alleged reincarnation of King Arthur.
Ellie couldn't be happier to have Will in her life, but she's also worried that his estrangement from his parents is t...more

She should write this story instead of leaving it as a manga. I think a lot of people will agree with me.
Sadly, I felt a little let-down. The sequel was more like a flashback into Ellie and Will’s ...more

Created and Written by Meg Cabot, Illustrated by Jinky Coronado
I grew up reading comics. I read them as a child and I collected them as an adult. I currently own 2 huge storage boxes filled with classics such as Ghost Rider, The Incredible Hulk, She Hulk, Wolverine, Sandman, Watchmen and more. For an MLS class, I needed to read two graphic novels. I thought to myself, ok, I can do this! I love comics, I love novels, what’s better than the two ...more

She's got an exciting - if not a bit predictable plot - but the real bonus for me was the artwork. It's drawn in comic book style, which makes it fun to read. It goes fast - and is technically only the first part of the whole story - frustrating because most of it is an explanation of what happened in Avalon High. The plot of this series focuses on the return of Marco (or Mordred, they might say) and a n ...more
In this graphic novel sequel to Cabot's Avalon High, Ellie Harrison is struggling with the aftermath of the book's events. With Marco in an asylum, her boyfriend Will refusing to acknowledge his place as the reincarnated King Arthur despite Mr. Morton's (aka Merlin)insistence, and Will's ex-girlfriend Jennifer acting like their best friends, Ellie is having a rather hard time. But then Mr. Morton drops a bomb - according to the Merlin Prophecy, if Will doesn't accept his de ...more
The cover is too dark and it's weird to read a Tokyopop publication in hardback. It doesn't seem natural.
I've read the original book years ago in Italian and I liked it. I've also seen the movie probably and I was curious about the graphic novel adaptation.
Is it a good OEL adaptation? Nope. It's bad, ugly, and the characters have too big boobs to be real.
The first 50 pages or ...more
I was quite happy when I found them because I thought that Avalon High could have used a sequel or two hahaha and I like how she continued them through these.
Elle and Will are going on with their teenage lives along with their friends Jennifer and Lance. Things should be going great for them from now, but always the idea of the reincarnations will linger over them as Elle is now set with a mission from ...more

I finished it in a couple of hours, and, in this case, that is NOT a good thing. It wasn't because it was so amazing, or because I loved it, it was simply 'cause I was bored and it was the only book I could find.
Frankly, I didn't like it. At all. I had seen the movie, and thought I'd give the book a shot, 'cause I loved the movie so much, but I just did ...more

I really liked the story line. It was quite interesting and it was based on historical myths of King Arthur and it put a modern spin on it which I really liked.
The characters were all really interesting. I quite liked Ellie and Jennifer but I found Will to be slightly annoying at times. I liked how genuine and down-to-earth Ellie and Jennifer seem more than anything.
Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun ...more
