ENCHANTER REDEEMED is an epic adventure of betrayal, salvation, and hopefulness. The Camelot Reborn miniseries has been very imaginative, as the first three books told of King Arthur and several of his knights living in the modern world and preparing to fight demons plus the fae. These two groups want retribution for what was done to them when a spell was cast by Merlin many years ago, and now a big battle is looming ever closer. Sharon Ashwood has created an extremely original story where hearts and lives are on the line, and if good does not triumph over evil, the world will forever be changed. I was immediately drawn into each fascinating detail in this novel, where all developments come across as believable.
In order to rid Camelot of demons during the time of Arthur, the magical abilities of Merlin were used and the attempt was successful. But not all were happy with the way everything turned out, and the enchanter has been trying to correct a horrendous wrong ever since. But it seems his time has run out when a foe once banished has come back into his life.
There is one demon in particular that wants to make sure Merlin suffers for what he did to her. He once knew the talented Vivian very well, and has no doubt about her current feelings for him. Though he never wanted to associate with her again in any manner, an incident lets her know something personal about him. Now the unforgiving demon is inside a witch named Clary Greene who is Merlin’s apprentice, and the outcome is uncertain when something so powerful is seeking revenge.
The Camelot Reborn miniseries has been so innovative from the start, and ENCHANTER REDEEMED takes creativeness to new heights. Many beloved characters from the King Arthur fable are featured, and I was especially impressed with how the author made Merlin such an interesting individual. While he is certainly gifted with it comes to using magic, Sharon Ashwood also showed a very personal side to this man, one which desires the same things an ordinary person would crave. I have always been intrigued with Merlin, and after reading this account of possible truths concerning him, I am even more riveted by the myths surrounding him.
Though Clary is a witch, she has come to Merlin in order to enhance her abilities. When her body is hijacked by a demon, I totally enjoyed all the conversations between the two, as they were informative plus even amusing at times. How Clary and Merlin interacted at first had me wondering if they could ever be a couple. Then several unexpected events take place, and their lives are altered in ways they never saw coming.
Any actual physical clashes in the story are packed with action, and all the different species involved were definitely attention-grabbing. Sharon Ashwood always supplied numerous vivid descriptions when it came to locations or beings, thus letting me easily envision the scene in my mind. ENCHANTER REDEEMED will long be remembered for its realistic portrayal of legendary characters.
I voluntarily reviewed the book and all comments are my honest opinion
