The Fifth Knight (The Knights of Caerleon series Book 1) by Claire Luana & Jesikah Sundin – Review by Emma Haverstock

The Fifth Knight (The Knights of Caerleon #1)The Fifth Knight by Jesikah Sundin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Strong female character in an Arthurian tale? Sign me up.
Fionna is a fierce and talented warrior who is the key to breaking the fae curse that Arthur and his Knights are up against. I was hooked from start to finish. I have always enjoyed Arthurian legends and this is my first RH novel so it was pretty interesting to add to the mix of what I’ve already consumed in terms of Arthurian literature.
The story is told from several different POV characters, which I’ve always thought helps to flesh out characters. I also like that although Fionna is a strong willed character, she doesn’t have that irritating trope of getting in over her head to prove herself and then needing to be rescued like any old damsel in distress. It was kind of annoying that everyone seemed to fall in love with her like they’d never seen a woman before but I guess it fits in with the timeline/history/ story that the whole thing is based around. Can’t wait for the next book!
