Book: Half Sick of Shadows
Author: Laura Sebastian
This is my 61st read for the year.
I got this as an early copy through my Book Of The Month Club
This is the story of Arthur, Lancelot, Guinevere, Morgana and Elaine. Everyone knows the story. Arthur who is to be king. Guinevere who betrays Arthur with Lancelot. Morgana who turns against them all. And Elaine - who is cursed to know the fuure before the rest of them.
When the time comes for Arthur to claim the throne, the group accompany him Camelot. Elaine tries her hardest to keep everyone together and everyone safe, but no matter what she does - the future never really changes for her closest group of friends. She must decide how far she will go to change their fates.
This was an okay book. I always love a good spin on a classic story. It did move a little slower and more like a YA book (even thought these characters are in their 20s.) The characters are a bit bland and I never really got fully invested in any of their stories. The timeline was a bit of a mess, didn't really develop well. And the ending - for me it just fell apart. It left me wanting mor.
I had high hopes for this one. I loved the idea. But for me it fell flat.
