It gets worse

Brutal Time is the latest in this series and it involves Myla and Lincoln travelling back in time to meet King Arthur.

Now I have always liked the concept of a King Arthur and his Round Table, Camelot and the Knights and so thought it was really cool that here we see the reality of the person on which the concept – ideal – was based. A smelly, drunk, rather nasty man, who made sure he was ‘bigged’ up by his bard!

I thought it was a shame that more was not made of King Arthur and his Knights and that the whole time with Merlin and Nimue was downplayed and really formed quite a short piece in the book. For me this spoilt it, and made the book a 4 star rather than a 5 – which it could have been.

I enjoy this series and the author’s writing and we get some good and unusual themes and additions. I would have also liked to see more time spent with Myla and Lincoln and their interactions. These are the things that make the story for me.

Author bio

bauer - It gets worse

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. 

Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.

I spy some myths

Books 2 and 3 in the Ria stories take us even further into the realm of myth and folk-lore.

It seems that Ria is or at least has been, friends with the Greek Gods of Mount Olympus and King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table (which is now situated in Wales just so you know).

The advantage for the author of this series is that she can get Ria chasing after many mythical objects with many mythical characeters from all of the world’s folklore. The disadvantage for the reader is that the storyline is now basically the same – Ria meets some old friends she has largely forgotten, they need to hunt for a object, they go n a hunt, they encounter lots of problems with baddies, but in the end they find the object.

The same story with different characters. Formulaic. Such a pity. I downgraded the books after reading both to just about a 3. But this is the nia3 - I spy some mythsend of this series for me.
