4.5*

Knight of Darkness é o segundo livro da série Lords of Avalon. Aqui encontramos Variant e algumas personagens como Blaise (o nosso dragão) e alguns cavaleiros da távola redonda. A história de Variant, muito como a de Kerrigan, é feita para apelar ao nosso instinto protector: temos o filho de Lancelot e da sua esposa que odeiam o filho por algo que ele não é, criando assim uma criança que suspeita de tudo e de todos, que acaba por se juntar à Merlin, que já conhecemos no livro anterior. Devido à desconfiança que os outros cavaleiros têm contra Variant, ele torna-se o homem a quem Merlin recorre quando precisa que algo "sujo" seja feito, especialmente quando precisa que alguém vá ter com Morgen, a má da fita, para tentar saber os seus planos.
(...)

Acontecem uma série de peripécias e provações que eu não vou contar e lá se descobre que algumas personagens, de quem eu já gostava bastante *cof cof Blaise cof cof*, passaram ainda mais a serem personagens favoritas, seja pela sua personalidade ou mais do que isso.

Um livro com amor verdadeiro à mistura, feiticeiros e lendas, aventuras, perseguições, transformações, tem de tudo um pouco e agrada a vários gostos.

Eu estava tão entusiasmada para ler o próximo que quando descobri que ainda não havia "próximo" fiquei tão triste que não imaginam. Esta série será, sem sombra de dúvida uma série a ler e reler :)

Impatiently waiting for the next book in the series - Darkness Within. ( )

I enjoyed the first LoA book, 'Sword of Darkness,' and I find the concept of an evil Camelot delightful. So, naturally, I picked this one up the day it came out. And I enjoyed it . . . for a while. Then everything became too cheesy to endure, the novelty wore off, and I realized I was forcing myself to finish out of some misplaced loyalty to the author. 'Knight of Darkness' is far from MacGregor/Kenyon's best or even mildly better work. ( )

Book description
For countless centuries, I've been the assassin for the infamous Merlin, even though the woman who birthed me sits at the right hand of our enemy, Morgen le Fey. Now both my mother and Morgen have decided that it's time I take my place on their side of this conflict.

Normally, telling them no wouldn't be a problem, except for the fact that the good guys I protect think that I'm an even worse demon than the ones we fight. Hmm, maybe they're right. I have to say that I do enjoy maiming anyone who gets in my way.

At least until my mother gives me a simple choice: join Morgen's Circle of the Damned or see an innocent woman die. I'm all for saving the innocent, but Merewyn isn't as innocent as she seems. And she's none too fond of the fact that her fate is in my dubious hands. Personally I'm all for taking the easy way out, but leaving her to Morgen is rough, even for me. Now the only way to save both our lives is to face the evilest forces ever known- my mother and Morgen. And two people who know nothing of trust must learn to rely on each other or die: provided we don't kill each other first.
