Can a modern heart entwined with an ancient mystery prevail against a terrifying future?

When she was three, Halley Winsted was given a mysterious family legacy and told to follow her heart. But now that she’s thirty-three, love and commitment don’t come easy, even in the arms of sexy Tom Rutledge. A trip to England seems the perfect chance to sort out her feelings, and to indulge her obsession with the Arthurian legends.

But the legends are true. Arthur is alive in Avalon, teetering on the brink of madness, unable to fulfill his role in mankind’s terrifying future. Can the legacy Halley bears heal Arthur’s mind in time? Can she trust her heart to lead her to her destiny?

Being a great fan of the mighty Arthur Pendragon, Stonehenge and of course Avalon I just had to read this book. Pamela Hearon does not disappoint, I was intrigued from the very beginning of this story. What could be more romantic than the love of Arthur and his time?

Halley has loved England and Arthur since she can remember as is fitting since she was born into a family that loved him just as much. From having family jousting games and even an Uncle who had a round table with throne like chairs how could she not love Arthur and his legend?

Halley has dreamed of going to England all her life to experience for herself firsthand the sights and sounds of all the places related to Arthur and his time. As Tom her boyfriend waits behind, Halley sets off to England alone. Once there she begins on the adventure of her life. One that seemed to begin even before she left Tom and home as her dreams began days before she left. Halley must try and understand all that happens to her from visions to voices and even such raw emotions at times that she can hardly bear it. She is given a special task and it seems only Halley can bring Arthur back from the edge. As Merlin and others weave their magic to help and guide Halley on her journey she must also learn and guide herself when it comes to the matters of the heart.

This story is full of Arthurian lore and just as romantic as his time seems to be. As Halley finds herself and the answers to her questions, her love for Tom and her family always shines through. Halley has a big heart and great strength. If you enjoy Arthurian legends you will not be disappointed if you read this book. I enjoyed it from start to finish. Pamela Heron did a great job of intertwining the facts and lore into the present time and through the journey that Halley takes.
