Master of Swords by Angela Knight

Jenn passed this book on to me and I thought I needed a quick reading interlude. I'm reading one of Ben's Isaac Asimov books right now and it was annoying me so I had to put it away for a bit!

This romance novel was very unique - and had many of my favorite story elements. It had Knights of the Round Table, Vampires, Magic, Dragons, and romance. The overall story is that Arthur and the Knights of the round table became immortal vampires after drinking from Merlin's grail. They live in a magical universe and come back to ours to help human kind through a portal. Gawain must mentor Lark (Mortal who becomes immortal at the beginning of this book who is also the great-granddaughter of Tristan) to help defeat a band of evil vampires that are terrorizing Earth.

There is a review at the beginning of the book that pretty much sums it up for me "A powerful romantic suspece and sensuous tale all rolled into one alluring an explosive package. . . twists and turns, fairies, vampires and sex hot enough to burn" Romance Reviews today.

I enjoyed it. If you are looking for a unique romance novel that delves into the fantasy genre - I recommend Master of Swords!
