THE SEVEN SWORDS
Book 2 of the Otherworld Chronicles
By Nils Johnson-Shelton
The Kingfisher children, Artie and Kay, have found that an Otherworld and magic exist, and that in that world, Artie is King Arthur. They also found that freeing Merlin from The Invisible Tower was not the end of their adventures.
Now, Artie, Kay and the rest of Artie’s court and friends must find and rejoin the Seven Swords: Excalibur, Cleomede, Gram, Kusanagi, Orgulus, the Anguish and the Peace Sword. This quest brings them many perils, new friends and allies, and knowledge about what is right and wrong. Artie, especially, learns what the duties and expectations of a good king are.
While this is the second book in a series it can easily stand alone and you won't feel lost....personally I am looking forward to getting to know these characters better!
