An interesting read. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I ended up enjoying this book, and look forward to reading more. Well written and easy to read.

I really cannot pass up King Arthur or his knights and this book was awash with stories of the Round Table knights. New stories always fascinate me and keep me enthralled. This book had several good short stories. I especially like "Ghost Child". Anyone well versed in the "older" stories of the knights will find these new stories refreshing and consistent with the genre of the Round Table. Loads of fun and easy to read. Go ahead and take yourself back to the age of chivalry. ( )

I love stories based on Arthurian legends so I was happy to win this collection from Early Reviewers. Usually, anthologies of this sort are a mixed bag and invariably contain a few duds. However, I was pleasantly surprised in that I found all the stories engaging and enjoyable, even if the quality of the writing varied. My favourite stories were "The House of the Knight's Nail" by Rick Overwater, "Ghost Child" by J. R. Campbell, and "The Song of the Star" by Renee Bennett. ( )

I thought that this would retelling of the King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table stories but as I began to read this I discovered it is a collection of short stories by different authors that reference the King Arthur stories - interesting idea. For me, this was a uneven collection of stories with some better than others. A few of the stories I greatly enjoyed such as "Brannon and the Raven" and few I found too slow paced such as "Before All Else." ( )

I got this book for free from EarlyReviewers.

I love stories of Camelot, so I was looking forward to reading it, but most of the short stories really weren't that interesting to me. I thought the book was okay, but nothing too special. ( )
