Will dazzle and amaze - Henge (Le Fay, #1) by Realm Lovejoy

The idea of modernizing the Arthurian legends came naturally to me since I didn't want to set the story up the same way it's been done many times. As a writer, I wanted to write something that I'd have fun with so I wanted the story to be fresh for me and to create something I can believe and relate to. Read full interview here

Description:

Published: November 11th, 2014

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.

Wow, sounds like an awesome spin on these legends and far more female friendly than most Arthur type books. I'll be picking this one up!

I'm an Arthurian legend nut, so I'm absolutely in love with this book's concept! Really curious about what Morgan's mother did exactly with fire to get executed.
