 My Merlin Awakening (My Merlin, #2)My Merlin Awakening by Priya Ardis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From the moment she pulled Excalibur free of the stone, Ryan DuLac’s life went from being practically unknown to being plunged into the limelight, so to speak. It didn’t help that Matt had revealed himself to be Merlin before the entire world thereafter. Oh no, that’s quite a little thing compared to the enormous weight that now sits upon her shoulders. Her priorities have taken a different turn and she’s supposed to fulfill the obligations that surround the life of a sword-bearer now that she can wield Excalibur. That, unfortunately, is the least of her worries.

Determined to shun the responsibility of being the sword-bearer, Ryan claims that she needs more to time to come to grasp with her new status. She wants nothing to do with Camelot or the sword itself. In her mind, she did her duty and Matt can take care of the rest. Yet when a second tremor rocks the entire world, she realizes she can’t quite run from her past or the rocky onset of the future. Read on »

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Arriane DuLac, or Ryan, as she prefers to be called has had to put up with a lot of pain and heartache. Her mother was taken from her unexpectedly as she’d tried to protect her from outside forces. Forces that are hell-bent on ending her own life, once and for all. Ryan, on the other hand, refuses to go down without a fight. Deep inside, she yearns to avenge her mother’s death and hopes to get that very chance some day soon.

When a giant stone with King Arthur’s stone, Excalibur, falls smack dab in the middle of Trafalgar Square, Ryan and the entire world are thrown for a loop. Her ex-boyfriend, Matt Emrys seems to know something about the spectacle itself, yet he refuses to say exactly what it is he knows. Ryan does her best to get Matt to divulge his secrets, but her feminine wiles can only go so far. Not that Matt’s falling for them, mind you. He has a much larger agenda on his hands and he’s not quite paying attention to the situation at hand. Or so Ryan thinks. Read on »
