Fans of last year's hit THE LIGHTNING THIEF will eat this up. It seems that the legendary EXCALIBUR, sword of King Arthur, is still around. Being that the person wielding it is invincible, everybody, including our hero, Alfred Kropp, wants to get his or her hands on it. Paul Michael brings emotional realism to a lonely boy who starts the story lost, confused, and somewhat apathetic and convincingly turns him into a thoughtful, caring young adult. Of course, along the way there are plenty of car chases and gunfights to keep the story moving forward. A fine addition to the quest genre of young adult fiction.
