I bought this book directly from the author at a literary event. The story is not what you might expect, bearing the name of King Arthur's best knight, but I found it fascinating and enjoyable. It is the tale of an older Lancelot who is seeking enlightenment.

His motivation is to lead the youngsters to enlightenment, but of cour ...more

I was wary of this book, because of the subtitle "New age teachings on self-awareness and enlightenment in an Arthurian story."

Disclaimer: I received this book from a first-read giveaway.

In all honesty, I entered this giveaway because I love Arthurian legends (and generally enjoy stories set in that world). The spirituality felt a little forced on the reader, but it wasn't a bad story overall. Just don't go into it expecting a more traditional Arthurian tale, as I did, and you will most likely enjoy it.

Not exactly what I was expecting. There where some typographical errors. The characters were very shallow.

I did like the lessons learned that you need to be aware and live in the now and not dwell on the past or what will happen in the future. Control you thoughts, so they don't control you.

Except for a few editing mistakes (certain words being cut short) this book was a fantastic read.
