A new King Arthur has risen and she's got a universe to save
Coming to terms with your identity is always difficult. But for Ari, the 42nd reincarnation of King Arthur, it just got a whole lot more complicated.
Gender-bending royalty, caustic wit and a galaxy-wide fight for peace and equality all collide in this epic adventure.
With an awkward adolescent Merlin and a rusty spaceship, this is the Arthurian legend as you have never before seen it.
'A marvellous mythology remix for teens who enjoy action-packed speculative fiction and genderqueer romance.'
(Publishers Weekly starred review)
(School Library Journal starred review)
'A rip-roaring, no holds-barred, gloriously queer reinvention of Arthurian legend.'
(Malinda Lo, author of Ash)
'Oh my goodness, I loved it so much! Utterly compelling, brilliantly witty, and delightfully queer, I absolutely raced through it and loved every second. It was so refreshing to see LGBTQIA characters front and centre of the plot, being the heroes and saving the day. And the humour is sharp and genuinely funny – who doesn’t love a barbed Spice Girls reference?!'
(Simon James Green, author of Noah Can't Even)
'Like White’s The Once and Future King, this manages to be exciting, earnest, and funny, and Capetta and McCarthy unapologetically take jabs at our current political climate.'
‘All hail this worthier-than-ever, fresh, and affirming reincarnation of the legendary king and her round table of knights which dazzles with heroic flair, humour, and suspense.’
