Paranormal and sci-fi author Susan Kearney has taken the quest for the Holy Grail and turned the legend on its head in her new Pendragon Legacy series.
Lucan Roarke has always been fascinated with King Arthur and the legend of the Holy Grail. He believes that finding the Grail may save civilization from extinction. When he discovers a star map pointing to a planet called Pendragon, he is compelled to follow the trail across the galaxy. Will he find the Grail or is it another dead end?
High Priestess Cael has a personal stake in locating the Grail. As the spiritual leader of Pendragon, she hopes that the team of scientists can break through Avalon's shield to reveal the treasure within. Only the Grail's magic can save her nephew from death and she is determined to give him a chance at life.
When the team is betrayed and the Grail endangered, Cael and Lucan must trust each other. Neither one of them has been completely honest about their interest in the Grail or in each other.
Ms. Kearney really stepped out on a limb with this twist on a familiar legend. It was a risk that paid off with a page-turning novel filled with danger and passion. I could not put Lucan down and look forward to the next book in the series.
