Summary from Goodreads:
He was a little older than he was letting on. By a few eons...
In this modern Arthurian, 17 year-old Boston high schooler Arriane, aka Ryan, DuLac just found out the guy she's been crushing on, hot biker Matt, is a little older than he was letting on. In fact, he is really Merlin—the Merlin, King Arthur's Merlin, the greatest wizard who ever lived. Frozen in a cave for over fifteen hundred years, he's woken for a purpose. But Ryan's not impressed. Tired of being a relationship loser, she'd rather kick his legendary behind.
Sure, the world has been crazy ever since the sword and the stone fell out of the sky like a meteor. But despite gruesome gargoyles, a deadly new world of magic, and the guy driving her crazy, Ryan knows that family is everything. Will Merlin sacrifice hers to save the world? Will she be able to stop him?
Review By Alaiel Kreuz:
Seriously speaking people, aren't you tired of the constant books about vampires, werewolves, angels and demons? I mean, they are a HUGE constant right now. And I'm getting a little bit overwhelmed to be honest.
That's why, when I saw the chance (my chance!) to be part of this blog tour I knew I had to participate.
I mean, who hasn't heard the story about King Arthur and Merlin? Or about the roundtable? Or even watched that Disney movie that captured my heart? Damsels in distress and dragons, fights and quests, love and betrayal... Yes, I love these stories.
And a young Merlin?! A sexy, protective and powerful Merlin? Trust me, you will soon forget about the old man with the long beard (but don't let him go too far away, okay?).
This time Merlin is back to find and protect the reincarnation of King Arthur and deliver him to the Stone.
Because yes, the Stone is back too. In fact it appeared in the middle of London attracting thousands of people all around the world who want to have a chance at pulling the Sword out of it.
What they don't know is that something came following the Stone... Gargoyles and dragons are lurking around, waiting for the right moment to strike, kill and destroy everything between them and their chance to get Excalibur.
Only Merlin can sense and find the Candidates and this story is about Ryan, a girl that lost her mom not too long ago and now is living with her mother's best friend, Sylvia, and her soon-to-be-brothers, Alexa and Grey.
A terrible loss will trigger Ryan and Grey's decision to go with Matt (Merlin's incarnation... sort of) even if he drives Ryan crazy with his double personality -a few weeks ago he dumped her with a text message and now he is everywhere she looks- and is always pushing Grey's buttons just to make him angry.
And let's not forget about the love triangle (very interesting and I think necessary), the fights, the magic and the tension between characters.
Yes, I loved this book. It's different, quick and funny. The plot is great, the characters are intriguing and the twists will make you second guess yourself a lot.
By the end of the book I'm sure you will want to read the second part right away!
