THE FUTURE KING – LOGRES
Britain, 2052. In a world of war, disease and hunger the UK stands alone as a beacon of prosperity under an all-powerful ruling party. Life at new school Logres seems promising for fifteen-year-old Gwenhwyfar, and quickly she falls for the school’s handsome catch, Arthur. When Arthur’s rival, Lancelot, returns after a suspension, her heart is soon divided. Realising that behind the UK’s prosperity lies unspeakable cruelty, Gwenhwyfar sets off on a path to dismantle everything the government stands for. Suspenseful, raw and awash in a dystopian setting, The Future King: Logres is a story of identity and discovery against this backdrop, the second coming of the Arthurian legend.
My Review – I had two books in hand when I started reading this week. One of them was “ A Game of thrones (A song of ice and fire Part 1)” and another was “The Future King – Logres”
I am not comparing the books or anything. I am just telling that my instinct went with TFK-L and I started the book. I know nothing about Arthurian legends. I read this book (the first 70 pages) to just READ. After 70 pages, I guess I was in the (Britain of 2052) other world.
I have never been to Britain. I love Jane Austen, Lisa Kleypas, and J.K.Rowling.
Gwen came out as a strong character throughout the book. Arthur was in my eyes a ‘gentleman’ with the way he treated Gwen and Lancelot was a …well he was big “?” Lancelot was the character who looked a little like this guy.
Gwen stole the show though. She was fierce, easily trusting and not dumb. Her and Arthur’s story was quite interesting. The book is isn’t dull. I knew since the start that it was the first part so there might be some things unexplained.
The editing was good, there were some mistakes (like punctuation) in the story but overall the story was meticulously edited.
The story went slowly, it was lingering. There were some things that I think I didn’t need to know, like the conversations between characters. The story is set up in a different time zone and I liked that very much.
The best thing – The love triangle! The jealousy brewing!
If you have read “All these things I’ve done”, you will see some points similar, for instance, the lack of real chocolates. The author is quite good with creating a new atmosphere, characters and above all plot.
Favourite character – Gwen
It is the first part and I am very excited about the second! Hoping to read it very soon!
Rating – 4 stars
The book is a little lingering which is why I cut a star.
Do I recommend this – HELL YEAH!
