5 out of 5 stars
The story The Fifth Knight: An Arthurian Legend Reverse Harem Romance (The Knights of Caerleon series Book 1) by Jesikah Sundin and Claire Luana is a medieval/fantasy book. It is a story that hooks you in from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put it down until I had read the final page. I love fantasy books as they spark my imagination and I find myself lost in the pages of the story. I loved reading about the character of Fionna. She is a fierce and talented warrior. She is also independent and stubborn. She is forced into a course of action to save her father and sister. That action will have her stealing a faerie sword from a king. She is unprepared for what happens next. I also enjoyed reading about Arthur Pendragon and his sword brothers Lancelot, Galahad, and Percival. These four have a strong bond between them and I loved hearing them playfully banter back and forth with each other. Lancelot is one that has feelings for guilt and also a secret that he keeps. Arthur is a man of honor and believes that all that is happening in the Kingdom of Caerleon is his burden to bear. These brothers are all shocked and surprised when the fifth knight that Merlin has spoken of turns out to be Fionna. That the brothers and she are attracted to each other is undeniable. Their thoughts frequently turn toward each other. Is Fionna as the fifth knight the key to breaking the curse on the Kingdom of Caerleon? Fionna feels conflicted as she has to choose between betraying the king and knights that she has feelings for and saving her family. What will she do? Read this book to find out. This is a story that does have passion and romance included. There is also magic, enchantments, and danger. There is one that has their own selfish plans and will do anything to achieve them. The story is told from the POV of several of the characters. This is a wonderfully written story that had me turning pages to find out what happens next as well as rooting for the success of Fionna, Arthur, and the knights. This is the first book in a series and I look forward to reading further stories.
