Evil lurks. Camelot sits, vulnerable. The fate of a future king hangs in the balance.
After surviving a string of brutal trials, sixteen-year-old Morgan le Fay is an official member of Camelot. But beneath its shining façade, Camelot is a crumbling government where loyalties are divided.
Nobody believes Morgan’s suspicions that enemies are closing in. Prince Arthur, a boy more interested in playing video games than ruling, will not listen to her, and neither will Lancelot, Camelot’s head of security. Even Morgan's friend Merlin refuses to take action.
When Morgan discovers that someone is plotting to assassinate the future king, she must take her destiny—and his—into her own hands. With the sword Excalibur beckoning in the distance, Morgan embarks on a seemingly impossible mission. And before her journey ends, everyone will know what she is truly capable of . . .
In this second book in the LE FAY series, author Realm Lovejoy takes readers deep into the heart of a splintering Camelot. 
Hello everyone! Welcome to my review for Sword, the second book in the Le Fay series by Realm Lovejoy. If you haven't read the series, go check out my review for the first book Henge (HERE).

I'm currently writing this instead of paying attention in class because I just finished this book and I can't get it out of my head. I really enjoyed Henge and I've been anticipating the second book for forever. This book DID NOT disappoint. It was just as epic if not even more epic than the first book. The writing and pacing was absolutely amazing and I could not stop reading. It's been a while since a book has caught my attention to this level and I'm honestly going to die because I don't know when the next book is going to be released.

Diving more into the world, Camelot is a modern UK with cellphones, television, and a freaking amazing magic system. The writing in this novel just brought everything together. I finished Henge back in February of this year and I had no trouble getting back into the world. The whole thrill of the Luminaries and Morgan's desire to protect the Pendragons is just overwhelmingly amazing. (I have no other word to describe this book...)

The characters, oh my gods, I can't get enough of them. Morgan is such an amazing (there's that word again) protagonist and while she might be a little insane, she stays true to who she is even if that path may lead to dire consequences. While she is a bit hotheaded, her loyalty to what she believes in is unrivaled by any character. Merlin, my heart. I didn't like him that much in the first book, but this one brought him into a whole new spotlight. His talents as the Maven and his feelings for Morgan give me too many emotions to even talk. Of course, I have to mention Lancelot because (ahhh) more feels. Final character is Prince Arthur. He was such a brat in the first book, but he goes through so much character development and just grows up so much. My heart breaks for him, but he's going to be an amazing king.

All the plot twists in this novel are enough to give me a heart attack. While I can't reveal them for obvious reasons, just know that this book will take you on an amazingly epic journey that will leave in a state of shock by just how freaking amazing it it.

**I received a copy from the author for an honest review. Everything is 100% my own opinion.**
4.5 out of 5 stars

Foreverly Obsessed,
