Description

An international bestseller written by New York Times bestselling authors Molly Cochran and Warren Murphy.

When ten-year-old Arthur Blessing finds a strange antique cup, he has no idea it’s the most sought after object in history. Nor does he realize the discovery of the Holy Grail will take him on a journey that defies the rules of space and time.

As the cup’s fate-appointed guardian, Arthur is charged with protecting it from dark magic and a madman determined to harness the Grail’s legendary power. The mission threatens his very life, with assassins aligned against him at every turn.

Along the way, a washed-up ex-FBI agent and a mysteriously knowledgeable old man join Arthur in his dangerous task to keep the cup safe…and unlock the secrets of the boy’s own destiny.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 29, 1992 – Cochran and Murphy's ( Grandmaster ) new novel melds two plots, one taking place in Arthurian England, where the evil knight Saladin is trying to gain possession of the Holy Grail and make himself immortal, and the other set in the modern world, where the evil knight Saladin, now a mental patient, is again seeking the Grail and immortality. is trying to gain posses sion of the Holy Grail and thus become immortal. The Arthurian section is well written, with some clever new twists on familiar characters, especially Merlin and Nimue. Rather than echoing the conventional portrayal of Nimue as a scheming enchantress who bespells and traps Merlin, the authors depict her as a naive young waif who becomes the wizard's adopted daughter and helps him foil Saladin's plans. But the chapters set in modern times, where Arthur is reincarnated as a 10-year-old boy, are embarrassingly trite, with two-dimensional characters who spout dialogue that would be considered cliched in a made-for-TV movie. There is always room in the fantasy genre for a good new Arthurian novel. This, unfortunately, is not it.

Customer Reviews

Highly Recommend

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I am a very picky reader and most free books I get off I I-books I delete before finishing because they're terrible. This book, however, is really well written, with good pros and good pacing. The characters are pretty well-developed (the one with the most focus is the villain, which I appreciated because he's quite interesting). Even if you're not a huge fan of the King Arthur legend (which I am not), I would recommend this book if you like fantasy stories or adventures.
