Synopsis from Goodreads
The quest for Camelot’s survival continues… King Arthur’s secret daughter, Rhianna Pendragon, has faced mortal danger, ice-breathing dragons and dark magic to win Excalibur, the Sword of Light. But the sword is just one of four magical Lights that she must find to restore Arthur’s soul to his body and bring him back to life. Now Rhianna must head into the wilds of the North, to find the second Light, the Lance of Truth, before her evil cousin Mordred claims it. But Mordred is holding her mother Guinevere captive – can Rhianna stay true to her quest for the Lights and save the mother she’s never known, before Mordred wreaks his terrible revenge?
REVIEW BY CHRIS 9:1
The Lance of Truth is one in a set of four fictional fantasy books (set in the ‘Dark Ages) Each of these books includes exciting jousts, fierece dragons and mighty Magic. Katherine Roberts has aimed the writing style within the book at children between the ages 9 – 12.
It delivers a well written story and the words are ‘toned down’ so that younger readers can enjoy the plot. The story takes place in the Arthurian era, and follows some of it’s folklore and culture assisting the world building and delivery of the plot.
The main character, Rhianna Pendragon, who is Arthur’s daughter, is on a quest to revive her father and rescue her mother, to do this she needs to collect four ‘lights’ to restore Camelot. On her way there she must overcome challenges desicions and enemies of her and her father.
Although this genre does not suit my tastes or likes, it was well written and enjoyable. I would recommend it for anybody who likes the Fantasy/Magic/Action genre.
