Reviews of Young King Arthur And The Round Table Knights by Cara Aisling

M.E. Aster reviewed on Aug. 5, 2021

Young King Arthur and the Round Table Knights was a fun read that I think people of any ages can enjoy.

I’ve always loved King Arthur retelling, and I was excited to read this one since I knew it had an LGBTQ+ twist. The author did a great job making the world of King Arthur their own and I loved how they wrote the characters, especially Merlin, he was my favorite.

On the other hand I was so excited for the romance that I found myself a bit disappointed that it wasn’t the main focus of the story. It was teased at then took a backseat until the end of the story which is totally fine. I was just hoping that it would play a bigger role in things since I’m a huge sucker for romance.

But overall this was a lovely story. I think all fans of YA fantasy will definitely enjoy this and I appreciated reading a retelling where Arthur is gay. I’m looking forward to more by this author!

I loved this story. I found it to be a nice retelling with many enjoyable characters. I loved how Arthur was able to grow into his role with the help of his knights and mage. The author has done an amazing job to ensure that readers are entertained throughout the story. I for one was not able to put the book down.

I look forward to the next book in this series. I can't wait to see what is in store for Arthur and his allies.

I would, without hesitation recommend this book to others, especially if you are interested in Arthurian legend

This is a new take of Arthurian Legend, and fits very nicely with YA LGBTQ+. I really don’t want to spoil that part but just know that there is more to Arthur than what we initially see, and I am eager to see how things develop.

Arthur is the fourteen-year-old son of a baker in the castle town of Camelot. The story begins two weeks after the death of King Uther Pendragon, and it is time for the Choosing Ceremony to see who the next King of Camelot will be. By that, each person will take a chance at pulling the Holy Sword Excalibur from the stone. The one who pulls the sword gets crowned King.

We all know that Arthur gets chosen. How he gets chosen changes with each book in Arthurian Legend but the end result is always the same: the Holy Sword chooses Arthur as the next King of Camelot.

This book is one non-stop action and had me eager to read the next page. Before I knew it, the end of the book arrived, and now I’m happily pestering the author for more books (and yes, there WILL be more books so Yay!)

This book has the struggles that any young teenage boy goes through. These include: Figuring where they fit in with the world, family, peers. Nervous, stressed, fearful to speak up. So much to learn in such a short span of time. Butterfly feelings in the stomach when around certain individuals. Petrified of bullies and scary people. Too scared to tell mum of certain secrets about themselves. This book also has the awesome best friends, mentors, loyal people, scary people, bullies, and the healer to help heal the wounds, both physical and emotional.

On top of all that, Arthur has to deal with being King. Which means more deadlier bullies and scary people, way more things to learn, and learning fast which people he can trust and not trust (or get killed in the process).

This book is perfect with introducing Arthur and his Knights, along with the mysterious Merlin. A great start to a brand new series as we see Arthur struggle to fit in, trip over his own feet multiple times, gain powerful allies and deadly enemies. We see how he tackles each hurdle that comes his way. He grows a lot as a character, both in knowledge and feelings. And he eventually realises that he doesn’t need an excuse just to wander down into the Castle Town just to visit his own mum.

This book is Young Adult, but I feel any age can enjoy this book, whether they are familiar with Arthurian Legend or not. I know people older than myself that have enjoyed this book. Either way, it’s a great book about a young teenager growing up in an unusual way in a Fantasy setting, and is worth checking out.

I love this book so much and very, very eager to get my hands on the rest of the series! Sadly, I have a long wait ahead of me.

Thank you! ^_^
