My Review: (4/5 stars*)
My Boyfriend Merlin is incredibly engaging and fun. If you like the BBC television show Merlin you'll love reading this series (as this was the case for myself). Even if you just enjoy different spins on Arthurian Legend this is a fantastic read and the third and final book "Ever My Merlin" releases soon (TBA). Priya Ardis does an outstanding job creating and intertwining a modern world with mythological aspects. Merlin is swoon worthy and the heroine of the story Arriane DuLac doesn't lack for intrigue and wit. A fresh twist on an old Arthurian Legend. It's clear that with each book the writing only gets better.
Arriane "Ryan" DuLac is your typical 17-year-old until she finds out her ex boyfriend Matt has been lying about his age - by a few centuries. He's ancient and mythical - literally. Back then they called him Merlin the greatest wizard to ever live. Known by legend he helped Arthur become King. However, Ryan doesn't want anything to do with him or his past but apparently fate has other plans when Excalibur drops out of the sky and falls in the dead center of England fused to a rock. Still DuLac is uninterested until her family is attacked and her and her brother are forced into training to fight the enemies that threaten to destroy her life. Now she needs Matt's help more than ever.
