Whosoever wields the Sword of Power shall be the one true King.
But what if the Sword has chosen a Queen?
Nimue grew up an outcast. Her connection to dark magic made her something to be feared in her Druid village, and that made her desperate to leave…
That is, until her entire village is slaughtered by Red Paladins, and Nimue’s fate is forever altered. Charged by her dying mother to reunite an ancient sword with a legendary sorcerer, Nimue is now her people’s only hope. Her mission leaves little room for revenge, but the growing power within her can think of little else.
Nimue teams up with a charming mercenary named Arthur and refugee Fey Folk from across England. She wields a sword meant for the one true king, battling paladins and the armies of a corrupt king. She struggles to unite her people, avenge her family, and discover the truth about her destiny.
But perhaps the one thing that can change Destiny itself is found at the edge of a blade.
First and foremost: I did not care for the art style though I did love how there were images in the book. Some of them were really cool while others detracted from my reading experience. Other than that I really enjoyed this story! Nimue is a seriously badass woman and I loved reading about a woman who was worthy of Excalibur. This story did have a few of the mythos from the original King Arthur story. And honestly I did not like Arthur though we’re not supposed to, he does things that make me hate hiiiimmm.
