Win a Special Copy of Kinley MacGregor’s Sword of Darkness

November 29, 2010 by  

Though True Blood Season 4 is about to begin production, we still have a several month long wait until Season 4 actually premieres. Though talking with fellow fans here on helps ease the ache of not having new True Blood episodes to watch, I still find myself going to my bookshelf and grabbing my favorite books to read again.

Though anything with vampires and/or were-creatures tends to be my favorite reading material, if a writer I love writes another series, I’m often willing to try it out. In this case, my favorite author Sherrilyn Kenyon wrote an Arthurian legend series called the Lords of Avalon under the pseudonym Kinley MacGregor.

The first book is called Sword of Darkness, and when I read it, I was thrilled by the dark take on the legend of Camelot. In the series, the peaceful land of Camelot is no longer what it once was. Instead, we see Camelot past it’s prime, with the noble knights of the Round Table living in Avalon.

Beyond seeing darkness rule Camelot, there’s another couple of interesting changes to the legend of Arthur. First, Excalibur has an “evil twin” of sorts, the sword Caliburn. Second, Merlin is not a character. Instead, Merlin is a title for magical advisers, and those advisers are all led by the Penmerlin.

The lead characters of the book, Kerrigan and Seren, are quite the interesting pair and wonderful character foils. But in order to learn more about them, as well as meet the paranormal secondary characters who are tons of fun, you have to read the book!

Luckily for us, Sherrilyn Kenyon kindly donated two (2) copies of Sword of Darkness to to be given away as prizes. And this isn’t the version of the book that can be found in stores. Instead, it’s a special advanced copy that also includes a sneak peek at the next book in the Lords of Avalon series, Darkness Within. Two (2) lucky winners will be chosen to win a copy of Kinley Macgregor’s book Sword of Darkness.
