Enchanted Warrior Camelot Reborn #1 An ancient evil rises An ancient warrior awakensIn an age clouded by legend Gawain was one of King Arthur’s greatest knights When he awakens centuries after the fall of Camelot he faces his most daunting uest yet—the search for his missing companions His hope is that Tamsin Greene the alluring historian at Medievaland Theme Park can help him Then he senses the magic within her Gawain will now have to trust a witch—and his own heart—to rouse the knights of the Round Table and save humanity from a faery onslaught My Overall ThoughtsSharon Ashwood reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing her novels Enchanted Warrior and Enchanted Guardian Of course I accepted and was so excited that an author reached out to me to review not one but two of their novels So I received these two books for free in exchange for my completely honest review My review of Enchanted Warrior will be coming soon so be on the lookout for that as wellNow overall I was extremely impressed with the book It was really actiony at times which doesn’t make it a bad thing just different from what I normally read This book definitely took me out of my comfort zone which I really loved The word choices in this book are also very well chosen Even if action and books with a tie to Medieval times doesn’t seem interesting to you I will still urge you to give this book a try It’s way than it seems and has a little bit of something for everyone I really enjoyed this book and I’m definitely looking forward to reading the second book in the seriesProsI just have to start with saying THAT PROLOGUE THOUGH OMG was that thing amazing It definitely drew me in and it made my expectations for the book skyrocket I really enjoyed the underlying premise of the book The idea of forbidden love with a lot of family drama thrown in is part of what kept me interested in the book during the slow parts Tamsin and Gawain’s mistrust of each other is a major concept in this book This mistrust stems from nothing other than Gawain’s background because he can only see Tamsin for what she is instead of who she is This is a huge frustration for me and its extremely sad but I think it was necessary for the storylineI loved that Ashwood didn’t just stop at including witches in the book but also included many other supernatural creatures as well demons gargoyles fae dragons etc It really made the story interesting for me I also really really loved the tie to Camelot and King Arthur because it made this book unlike anything I’ve ever read beforeI really enjoy books that are told from multiple points of view and this one was set up that way switching between Tamsin and GawainOne of the most admirable ualities that Gawain possesses is his undying loyalty to something or someone he has pledged himself to Over the course of the book you can slowly see Gawain’s loyalty shifting from one person to another even though he tries to fight it It was amazing to see Gawain’s love force him to face the realities of who he really is I know this seems silly and a little insignificant but I really liked the names of the main characters– Tamsin and GawainBest part of the book was watching reading Tamsin and Gawain’s relationship grow and blossom into something that is beautiful and envy provoking It was such a relief to see Gawain finally open himself up completely to TamsinConsThe beginning of the book seemed like it was making no progress at all and the same things just kept happening over and over again Like I mentioned in the Pros section of this review the book is told in 2 points of view The reason I’m bringing it up here is because I prefer when the chapters are told in different POVs and this one wasn’t like that Instead when the POV switched it would just start a new paragraph So my mind would have to switch gears and realize who was talkingSometimes things can get a little carried away in books As I mentioned in the Pros section of this review I really loved that supernatural creatures were included in the storyline However I think it was taken a little too far when zombies made their appearance Luckily they didn’t stick around very long because it was a major turn off I just want to make it clear that my dislike of the zombies being included is not because I despise anything to do with zombies I love The Walking Dead I just felt like it wasn’t necessaryGawain’s inner struggle and stubbornness when it comes to Tamsin was extremely frustrating I found myself telling him out loud how stupid he was and to just get over it LOL To top that off he struggles to trust Tamsin who proves herself time and time again and then trusts his worst enemy for a split second that proves to be a bad decision I mean come one You can’t be that stupid GRRThe ending was slightly confusing to the point I couldn’t really understand exactly what was happening until it was all over That’s the only time I feel the articulation in the book was a bad thing In this stretch of the book I’m talking it in my opinion it became a little too wordy for the amount of action that was happening So it made it hard to followMost disappointing part of the book was the fact that King Arthur was NOTHING like I was expecting My mind set about how great King Arthur was and the way he was talked in the book had me expecting this great king Once we meet him in the book he seems like nothing they have describedYet how could he love someone who would be his downfall – Gawain With evil on the rise Gawain has awakened centuries after the fall of Camelot facing his most daring uest and finds himself having to trust the witch Tamsin Greene to save humanity from a faery onslaught in this enchanting paranormal romanceTamsin is a historian at Medievaland Theme Park but she didn’t expect her world to be turned upside down by a real Knight and the readers can’t help but get caught up in the adventure of a lifetime as Tamsin joins Gawain in his search for his missing companions The chemistry between Gawain and Tamsin is certainly hot enough but there is the small matter of Gawain not trusting witches that keeps this relationship from blossoming to its full potential which has uite a bit of emotional turmoil to grip the heart and these strong compelling character know just how to ensnare readers into going along with them on their uest in this fast paced smooth flowing plot full of suspense action and romance Anticipation catches readers by their throat and refuses to let go as the excitement continues to build almost from the very first page with magical battles dangerous spells and an ancient evil to ensure that the thrills keep on coming The setting is modern day but with a twist as they travel through a couple of portals and unexpected surprises along the way keeps things interesting The scenes are well written with lots of vivid details that make it easy for the reader to stay glued to the pages as they capture the imaginationWhen I was a little girl I feel in love with King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table so you can imagine my delight when I discovered this new series Sharon Ashwood has brought sexy Knights to life in a modern world but managed to keep the medieval feel of the sorcery that took place in Camelot in what is currently taking place and I really wish that I didn’t have to wait so long for my next sword wielding knight fixsigh Once upon a time Arthur and his Knights the witches fae fought a war against demons One of Merlin's spells had an unfortunate cost It took the fae's souls and left them emotionless husks and power from the witches reducing their power Of course this lead to them becoming enemiesInteresting take on the popular Arthur and Knight of the Round Table Arthur and his knights were frozenturned to stone and are awakened in the modern age to fight again The difference is there are no longer in England They are in the US Washington to be precise Gawain at first was not a likable character for me I thought he was rude demanding I was also annoyed at the explanation for his adjusting to the modern age magic I like him by the end but it took me the whole book to get there I did like Tamsin; she was able to defend herself and showed her strength kindness Gawain whole thought process where witches bad got old I also thought it interesting that modern day covens had strict rules ie need permission to travel they arranged marriages Men have roles and women have theirs Tamsin would be the first Loremaster This was never dived into and was nothing than a few paragraphs A blend of Arthurian legend and witchery this modern day improvisation lends itself well to the world of the Knights of the Round table Tamsin is the perfect heroine and Gawain a swoonworthy hero I enjoyed the updated twist to this legend and the idea that knights could be frozen in time until they were needed to be of service Combustible scenes between the two MC's rocked it This was the first book I've read by Sharon Ashwood but it won't be my last
