Let me just say that you,Ms Kenyon, are too good to be true. Please forgive me for having thought that you would not be able to surprise me after writing the dark hunter series. I apologize for having believed, even for a second, I would not like this series. There were some reviews that were not good so I thought this series would disappoint me, but boy was I wrong...
This book was amazing. I enjoyed every page of it. Maybe the reason for why many didn't like it is that they were expect ...more
Whether writing as Sherrilyn Kenyon or Kinley MacGregor, this author knows how to give us amazing characters who are people we love – or love to hate – and worlds unlike any others. Sword of Darkness, the first book in the Lords of Avalon series, is a tale centered on the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and is no exception.
There are so many things to love about this book, but standing out most of all is the hero! Kerrigan was incredibly tortured, scarred, angry and soli ...more
This is one of those books with a plot that exists only for the sole purpose of romance. ...more

Lets start with the first problem. If you read the description of the book it says that it's a Arthurian Legend: knights, helpless maidens & magical destinies. Ok, sounds good. I start to read it and oh, well looks like it's really part fantasy romance and part urban fantasy. There's a whole slew of these characters that can travel by popping in and out of existence, can heal any wound and they can go forward and backwa ...more
Kerrigan, once a scared, defenceless young peasant, is now king and ruler of Camelot.
Thinking he would have all he most desired at his disposal - riches, respect, power and women - he chose to follow Morgen le Fey, King Arthur's evil sorceress of a sister, to her desolate world.
There he found the bitter truth. He was lord and master of everything that surrounded him, commanding an army of powerful creatures, such as dark fey, dragons and gargoyles, but only darkness surrounded him and not even ...more

Ever since a friend of mine showed me the Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunters Series I’ve decided that I would not lose sight of this author. I found on Goodreads this "Lord of Avalon" series that took me to Camelot- but this Camelot is not the one you know.
Kerrigan is the male lead and he’s the owner of the Caliburn sword, the “evil twin” of Excalibur – he carries the sword of Darkness. For those of you who may not know, these two ...more
Downtrodden peasant girl is taken by a prince of darkness, but he turns into a prince of goodness due to her influence. In the beginning, she stood up to him, did not fear him, this intriqued him, and he then fell for her. Their falling for each other seemed a little too quick and unexplained for me. I also did not like the many references to 20th century living. This story takes place in the middle ages, ...more
I adore Sherrilyn, love her writing style. She creates colourful characters that you love to love and love to hate. As any of the best authors that I love, she makes me laugh, cry, and get right down pissed, and I ad ...more
The story is set in mythological Camelot and the King is Karrigan who is a very tortured soul, he lives a miserable existence alone in his hell. Along comes Serena an innocent girl who slowly breaks down the ice that surrounds him. It is an interesting sto ...more
I'm beginning to wonder if it is even possible for Sherrilyn Kenyon (AKA Kinley MacGregor) to ever write a book or plot concept that doesn't work or kick major ass!
Taking the old Camelot story and reworking it to fit not only an historical setting, but combining a paranormal feel to the book as well makes this introductory book to the Lords of Avalon series excessively interesting.
I LOVE how Sherri takes the idea of an antagonist, which is technically the nature of the character of Kerriga ...more
A mí me encantan los libros de Sherrilyn Kenyon pero jamás me había animado a leer esta serie, sin embargo, compré este libro hace tiempo y lo guardé, por si se me antojaba leerlo después. Al final me animé a leerlo porque supe que alguien de esta serie aparecerá en Son of No One, el siguiente libro de los Dark Hunters y honestamente, me llevé una gratísima sorpresa con esta novela.
Kerrigan es un ladronzuelo que mientras está huyendo de sus captores se encuentra con la espada Calibur y al aga...more
second half - 0 stars.
It started great and I was sucked in the story. But then in one point, around 2/3 I was like : "Wait. I think I skipped a few pages ( 100-150 of them). I loooove Sherilyn's books. The way she does anti-hero(es) is magnificent. But this... It felt like she started to write 500-page book, and then , in the middle, her publisher called and said " Hey, sorry, I forgot to say that you are allowed to have only 200 pages. So she switched, and than you have --- ...more

Cos this series is so frickin' good. I finished the first book in less than a day. I love the concept of the series. The twist that Kinley MacGregor aka Sherrilyn Kenyon added to the legends of King Arthur tale is amazing. I shouldn't be surprised cos it's Sherrilyn Kenyon. She always tells such a spectacular stories. It has everything. A cool history and a good humor, a great time traveling twist, the Arthurian time was refreshing! ...more
