Melissa | 8 comments I remember in the late 90’s picking up a book with the premise that Arthur didn’t die but was put to sleep by Merlin and the Lady of the Lake to return when Britain needed him again. Flash forward to modern times he wakes up and is trying to figure out what’s going on. I remember that it was the start of a series but I didn’t purchase it and when I went back to get it the book was gone. Really interested in finishing this series now.

No- those are similar but this was a start of a new series and the author was male but not this one.

Melissa, is this book for adults or teens?

Are there fantasy elements?

Melissa | 8 comments I believe there are fantasy elements. I remember the synopsis talking about magic versus technology- but the short amount I read didn’t clarify to what extent. It might be older teen to adult- again I didn’t read enough to clarify. Sorry!

Brad Eichstadt | 129 comments Perhaps the Forever King trilogy by Molly Cochran?

The first book The Forever King was from 1992.

"Set in modern and medieval times, here is the story of the return of King Arthur--as a ten-year-old--and his greatest enemy, Saladin, a powerful, almost immortal sorcerer, whose goal is to wrest the Holy Grail from the boy."
