A great review of Song of the Sword has appeared on McNally Robinson Booksellers’ website. Chadwick Ginther begins:
If you think you know Arthur, Merlin and the Lady of the Lake guess again. Ariane is a troubled teen, starting a new life with her aunt in Regina. A new school would be hard enough, but learning you’re a descendant of the Lady of the Lake too?

Read the whole thing!
