Genre: YA Fantasy
Inspired by one of the greatest legends of all time…
Modern-day Camelot. Where knights no longer carry swords. Magic is dangerous. And those who seek control are not to be trusted.
Sixteen-year-old Morgan le Fay is a fire user. An ordinary girl with an extraordinary skill, she has the ability to create and command fire at will. Her dream is to become the Maven—the right hand of the future King Arthur. In the chance of a lifetime, Morgan is selected to join Arthur’s Round, an elite group of young magic users from which the new Maven will be chosen.
Along with the other fire, water, and wind users in Arthur’s Round, Morgan is rigorously trained and tested. The handsome Merlin, a brilliant water user, takes a particular interest in her. Is his friendship to be trusted, or is Merlin simply trying to win the position of Maven for himself? Among the many rivals Morgan faces is the current Maven, Mordred, who seems determined to see her fail.
But Morgan has a secret—years ago, her mother was executed for using fire magic, and Morgan’s desire for justice makes her more than ready to take on the challenge before her. Can she prevail in Camelot’s tests of survival and magic? Only time—and Morgan’s powerful fire—will tell.
Realm Lovejoy’s modern Arthurian series features one of literature’s most complicated and powerful female figures.Henge is the first book in the LE FAY series, and—like Morgan le Fay’s magic—it is sure to dazzle and amaze.
Sixteen-year-old Morgan Le Fay can control fire. Her father is against it though, against her using her powers in general, and doesn’t want her to join Arthur’s Round, a competition at court. The most talented magician of the competition will become the next Maven. Becoming Maven is Morgan’s dream, but she’s up against some fierce competition, among them Merlin, a water user, who is extremely powerful. But when freak accidents start to happen and someone seems out to get her, Morgan can’t be sure Merlin isn’t behind it all.
An engaging, entertaining book and retelling of the story of King Arthur with YA protagonists. I loved Morgan, she’s one of my favorite characters ever. I would recommend this book to all YA fans, especially if they like fantasy.
