From the publisher:
Lili, an apprentice of the Lady of the Lake, is the childhood friend of Percy, the boy who will become one of Arthur’s greatest knights. But as they grow older, Lili begins to see their differences. She has otherworldly magic while he has the magic that lives within the Human Heart. Lili dreams of knowing human love while Percy dreams of finding the Holy Grail. Neither can succeed without the other.

My Review:
I did not enjoy this author's style of writing. I did like the story but the broken sentences and dialog were very hard to follow. I found myself having to go back and re-read too many sentences to enjoy this story as I felt I could have if it were easier to read. The relationship between the two characters, Percival (human) and Lili (Fey) was indescribable. I didn't know if they were real friends or just two companions on a journey and I definitely didn't see a love story here so the ending didn't make much sense to me. I love the cover and the characters are interesting to say the least but this just wasn't my type of story. If you're a fan of the Arthurian Legend you may enjoy this different twist.

Content Note: Some strong language and mild sexual content.
