Book Review: Henge

I know, I know, I am not a fan of reviewing but here I am with my second review this week! But I'm letting my kid take this post, since is a YA fantasy. 

But first, a bit about the book. Henge, by Realm Lovejoy. is the first book in the LeFay series. The book not only retells the King Arthur myth through the eyes of Morgan LeFay but it also sets it in modern day. Very cool stuff. Here's what my daughter thought:
Morgan wants to become Maven (a protector) to Prince Arthur. She enters the “Arthur’s Round,” a competition to become the Maven. She runs into a series of magical problems at the camp, while making friends (and enemies).  
Morgan is magical—she can conjure fire in her hand and use it to do all different things. 
Her mom got executed for using magic when she accidentally killed someone, but Morgan saw it and knew that her mom was protecting herself.  
I am a fan of the King Arthur story, and I loved that the book told it from Morgan’s point of view. I thought it was a neat twist to set the story in the present time with cell phones and cars and other modern things. But they still have Knights, and I am glad that they are in there.
I loved that there was a lot of action and the book kept my attention. I definitely want to read the next book in the series.  
You can find Realm Lovejoy online at her website or blog, or hang out with her on Facebook or Twitter.
