Very good book. I love the way the author has twisted in the stories of King Arthur and everything that goes with him so that it fits in well with the plot. I liked the twist at the end, as I wouldn've picked that person to have done it until it was really obvious. Nevertheless, a good read.

A lovely read, mysterious, scary and romantic. Always love a story about premonitions and spooky foretelling dreams; this one has shades of King Arthur and a murder mystery too.

I really wanted to like this story based on the premise (a mystery around who the real King Arthur was, where he truly died, etc.), but all-in-all I found it pretty dreadful. It gets 2 stars for the concept and for a writing style that flowed well and was "readable." But the story ended up being pretty predictable and one-note. I didn't find any of the characters very compelling, and the romance between Fleur and Remy was ridiculously contrived (they were at soul-mate, passionate 'I Love Yous' w ...more

I didn't like this book as much as I thought I would.
There was something about Fleur that really bothered me. She seemed too obnoxious with her surroundings, if that makes sense.

It think it could have been the writing style as well.

I loved this book, there were so many twists and turns and the ending was impossible (at least for me) to guess. Isabelle Merlin is a fantastic author and it's a shame her books never got more recognition.

I normally avoid mysteries, but this is the exception to the rule. Beautiful writing, and just when you think you have everything worked out it's turned upside down. And I like Fleur as a main character :-)

This is a really cool book. There's romance and mystery all together. It was fun reading it. I wanted to know what would happen and who had done this and most of all I wanted to know how her and Remy were going to - as they say ''Happily Ever After''. I full-on recommend this book.

I usually never quit a book and the story was o.k. I was just struggling too much getting into the book. I kept falling asleep reading the book.

The first stories Isabelle Merlin remembers are the traditional French fairytales told to her by her French grandmother. Later, she heard family stories, which proved to her that magic and romance and terror don't only appear in fairytales: like the romantic story of the beautiful ancestor who caught the eye of the Sun-King, Louis XIV; or the amazing story of the wily ancestor who went from being ...more
