    1. This is a perfectly fun YA novel of the Arthurian Legend s, Lady in the Lake, set right in Saskatchewan s capital city, Regina.In the middle of the city, is Wascana Lake, and that s where the Lady s avatar resides Yes, Avatar, and Merlin is actually the antagonist What a brilliant move, taking an old trope and turning it into something fresh and special Ariane is a typical, teenage girl whose life has been turned upside down, and now, the Lady has chosen Ariane to go on a magical quest Ariane s [...]

    2. This is the second YA book I ve read in as many days where the female protagonist has to live aunt because her parents are missing or dead In the book, the aunt was strict but not evil, so the story worked much better Also the protagonist wasn t perfect and was proactive, so that also worked much better I m not sure how I feel about the heavily infused Arthurian legend I grew up with the Arthurian legend, so, while amusing, I even find Spamalot a little painful at times Still the writing and the [...]

    3. The first book in a five book series, Song of the Sword gives a fresh take on the Arthurian legends, bringing the Lady of the Lake, Merlin, and Excalibur to Regina, Toronto, and Yellowknife Wascana Lake plays a pivotal role in the magical beginnings of the heroine s story, as do bathroom showers and kitchen sinks, but the action isn t ruined by the sometimes silly circumstances The humour is part of what makes the book enjoyable The two main characters are relatable, and from the beginning, you [...]

    4. Don t you just love it when an author starts by saying, Remember that old story we all know and love Well, what if it had actually happened, but then it got mangled over the years in the retelling What do you suppose really happened, and what was really going on Well, that s exactly what Ed Willett has done here I ve read dozens of different books based on the legend of King Arthur, his sword, and his band of merry men, but this one stands out as a refreshing remix of that old tale, with plenty [...]

    5. I ve always found the Arthurian legend to be intriguing I picked this book up for that very reason but it was a let down.I ll be honest and say that I didn t have high expectations for Song of the Sword in the first place but yet it still didn t meet them.I lost interest very quickly and it just went downhill from there.They say don t judge a book by it s cover , this one is an exception The book is as dull as the cover art is juvenile And the writing is grade school level at best.

    6. Song of the Sword is ultimately a chase book reworking the Arthurian legend into contemporary time guised in the genre of teenage fantasy You really have to suspend belief to get into this story, especially as it s set in Regina, Saskatchewan That aside, Willett has constructed an exciting plot that features a teenage orphan Ariane and her scrawny but smart sidekick Wally The two set out on a quest to prevent Merlin, in human form known as Rex Major, from acquiring the first shard the point of t [...]

    7. This book was both full of tropes and unique which is a very weird mix I really liked it I though Ariane was a cool protagonist and Wally a wonderful best friend so smol, so precious, too sweet The world built in this book can go far and I expect the other books to go in detail about some characters or pieces of plot It s always fun to read a book set where you live and I really could picture Ariane walking to the Central Library and eating pizza in the foodcourt of the Cornwall Mall If you eve [...]

    8. Love the twist on this story Instead of coming up with your own story idea, take a classic legend and twist it around for a effective grab on people s attention I loved this book because of the wit that this girl and her side kick share.

    9. This looks interesting I think it s something I d like to put on my to read list.Unfortunately, the cover looks like it ought to go on the year s ten worst list.

    10. A modernized take on the Lady of the Lake and surrounding characters Not a favorite genre of mine, the fantasy that is hidden in our world.
