    Very interesting spin on old fantasy characters The book is a collection of three stories.  It mixed characters from Arthurian era and gave them a new spin. Morgana and especially Merlin were etched very well as the characters developed well over the three stories. Liked it.

Very fitting subtitled “An Arthurian Modern Fantasy” the story loosely borrows Arthurian tropes and transforms them organically into a modern urban fantasy that spans centuries, crossing realms and blurs the boundaries between reality and legend. A veritable smørrebrød of action, unexpected twists, wonderful characters and mind-blowing descriptions, garnished with a good dose of magic some sprinkles of mythical lore and some paranormal romance on the side, and served with very well-crafted, with an accurate world building, interesting characters, captivating writing style and carefully editing. Druid’s Dance Elijah is the sole survivor of the fire that killed his whole family when he was barely a child. Years later Elijah has become a capable young man about to graduate high school and become a legal adult, and with adulthood Elijah also receives his surprising inheritance. He is in fact the sole heir of some centuries-old-lineage of wizards that have been fighting the creatures of lore for ages. As his powers begin to wake, some hard facts come to light (his family death, was not accident), and a mysterious girl (Celtic fans would recognize her immediately 😊) follows him relentlessly trying to gain his support in the upcoming battle to save the world, until Elijah is forced to make a choice, with appalling consequences. Bard’s Tale Elijah’s life has turn on his axe, the Tree of Life (his power source) is dying, and his friends are moved on, Elijah is at his weakest as the Samhuinn creatures crossed the veil to St. Louis and begin to terrify its habitants. Elijah would have to dig deep in his own power source to be able to halt the invasion from the other realm before it is too late. Ovate’s Call The balance in Annwn has finally be restored as the Morrigan and Grainne were reborn in each other’s tree. Nevertheless, as a princess of Annwn suddenly appears Elijah cannot help but being reluctant, she seems benevolent enough, but is she really what she appears to be, or could be the Morrigan in disguise. The fact that Tyler seem fully enrapture by her, doesn’t actually help the situation. The final battle between the Morrigan, Elijah and his Order is about to begin, and it threaten to end it all.

    Wow, this series flows with so much meaning. You will not want to put it down. Elija is going to go through so much suspense, action, the unbelievable, fighting within himself, and figuring out meanings of everything that happens, his friends, family and earth. So follow the journey and maybe you might find out what you think of life and what you might do with it to make everything better. If you want my reviews on each story please go to that book.

    I love this series it is definitely one of my favourite stories and I love every bit of reading it. I have already read the first book and reviewed it before and it was an awesome book and I really had nothing bad to say about it and the next two books are no different. The second book has a great storyline which really captivates you and most of the time it makes so much sense which brings me to my next point. This story is amazing in the way that it has things like time travel and most stories I love this series it is definitely one of my favourite stories and I love every bit of reading it.

The second book has a great storyline which really captivates you and most of the time it makes so much sense which brings me to my next point. This story is amazing in the way that it has things like time travel and most stories that contain time travel are so confusing and you have absolutely know idea what's going on and where in time you actually are but in this book it is explained in a relatively scientific way but still easy to understand and because I knew what was happening it was so much more engaging and interesting to read. Though eberyone was easy to read there was a party that was a bit confusing for me, it was when Taliesman was telling his story and I just didn't know exactly what was going on it was very confusing for me and I had to re-read it to understand it. These books contain a lot of character development which I love but the characters don't change at the same time, what I mean by this is that Elijah changes so much in his confidence but he still keeps the exact same sense of humour and the same love for Emilie. The endings of these stories are so great because they don't leave you on any kind of cliffhanger yet still makes you wanting to read the next one instantly. Though I think that the third book was a bit short, I think it could have been made a bit longer by adding a bit more to the fight on the end and maybe made a bit more problems that they could have gone through before beating the army as I think that after they meat the Morrigan it was a bit too easy. Lastly I love that all the of these books tie in with eachother so well, you get so much backstory and information in the second and third book which made the first book so much clearer and everything just made sense. Basically in the end there were some minor issues but these books are so amazing and I love reading it.

    Excellent Spin on the Tales of King Arthur I certainly enjoyed this trilogy that blends Arthurian mythology with modern-day characters and places. I thought the first book was a little uneven in its pacing but still enjoyable. The author upped the stakes in the second and third books, both of which I enjoyed. I like it when authors gather books of a trilogy into one convenient box set. That way, you don't even have to go to an online bookseller to pick up the next installment!

Here’s my review of the first book: Druid’s Dance: Modern Arthurian Fantasy While fantasy isn't my go-to read, I do enjoy a few authors, and I'm always on the lookout for new authors and series. This series certainly has promise. The author pulls you right into the story with a dramatic and tragic event in the young hero's life. I thought the pacing was a little off at times. Sometimes, a lot was happening, while at others, I felt like I was waiting for something interesting to happen. But, overall, I still enjoyed the story. I nearly always enjoy a spin on Arthurian tales and characters, especially if there are druids! I look forward to seeing what will happen in the next book.

    I had the privilege to become an Arc for this three book series and I must say I really enjoyed it! The development of the characters as the story wove it's way through timelines! The legends, sacrifices and adventures were breathtaking and mindboggling! The way this author writes, it pulled me in and I couldn't let go until I read all three books.

    I am very picky about this kind of book. Anyone looking for mythological accuracy should look elsewhere. Anyone looking for theological or philosophical accuracy, then likewise. But, if you are looking for well written, and involving storytelling then look no further. The characters are well written, consistent and believable. The story is well written, very well developed and totally pulled me in. It read huge chunks at a time.

    Legacies are forged through sacrifice. Elijah Wadsworth lost his parents and twin sister in what he thought was a tragic accident. Five years later, when Elijah begins showing signs of magic and strange abilities which he cannot control, he finds that his family has been at the center of a cosmic battle for centuries and their deaths were not accidental!

    Elijah, Emilie and Tyler are just normal high schoolers, at least from the outside. On the inside, that could not be further from the truth. Druids, bards and other mystical beings are about to flood your imagination, leaving only enough space to keep moving forward with the adventure. Camelot even plays a huge part with Merlin, knights and dragons. The are so many similarities and pop culture references hidden throughout that is fun to see if you can catch them all, like pokemon.

    I loved this series! The character development was everything I've come to expect from Mr. Monroe - complex, involved, and realistic! Same with the story world. I love Merlin stories and I love Druid books, so what's not to like with this book? :) I highly recommend this book to anyone that is interested in the Merlin mythos or Druid mythology.

    This series focuses on Elijah who discovers he has magic and must protect the world from the Morrigan with his friends. If you love fantasy then this is a book you will love. It has everything from Merlin to altered time travel in it mixed with druids and dryads and everything in between. It's nicely done. I volunteered to read this book via Booksprout.

    I love this book set. Theophilus Monroe is a fantastic writer who draws the reader into a fantasy world like no other. The stories follow two teenage boys and a girl as they find out they are a Druid, a Bard, and an Ovate just like in the time of Arthur and The Knights of the Round Table. I can't wait to read more of his books. Highly recommended for anyone who loves to read fantasy! I love this book set.

    I really liked this series. It just drew me in and kept me reading to see what would happen next to Elija and what other secrets he would discover on his wild journey. Loved the magic, the world and the characters. Loved watching Elija discover and grow in his magic. Full of wild and fun creatures full of magic.

    Entertaining This book is loaded with lots of characters, plenty of action, and the mythos that embraces the whole of the British isles. Some of the characters introduced in this series play a part in the "Voodoo Academy" series. This is an entertaining epic.

    Master of twists I was not fond of the 2nd book and I was not happy with many of the twists in this series. However, the final book left me convinced there could be no happy ending...until the final twists...there may not be a HEA.. but there is Hope...
