Henge (Le Fay, #1)

Book & Author details:

Henge by Realm Lovejoy
(Le Fay #1)

Publication date: November 11th 2014
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Synopsis:
Modern-day Camelot. Where knights no longer carry swords. Magic is dangerous. And those who seek control are not to be trusted.
Sixteen-year-old Morgan le Fay is a fire user. An ordinary girl with an extraordinary skill, she has the ability to create and command fire at will. Her dream is to become the Maven—the right hand of the future King Arthur. In the chance of a lifetime, Morgan is selected to join Arthur’s Round, an elite group of young magic users from which the new Maven will be chosen.
Along with the other fire, water, and wind users in Arthur’s Round, Morgan is rigorously trained and tested. The handsome Merlin, a brilliant water user, takes a particular interest in her. Is his friendship to be trusted, or is Merlin simply trying to win the position of Maven for himself? Among the many rivals Morgan faces is the current Maven, Mordred, who seems determined to see her fail.
But Morgan has a secret—years ago, her mother was executed for using fire magic, and Morgan’s desire for justice makes her more than ready to take on the challenge before her. Can she prevail in Camelot’s tests of survival and magic? Only time—and Morgan’s powerful fire—will tell.

Take everything you know about King Arthur, think about it, and now throw it out the window. Holy crap this is a fantastic book!! This is a retelling for the other side. Morgan, or as most know her Morgana or Morgause. Morgan is the daughter of Morgause and her competition with Merlin for King Author. King Uther and Mordred. Wow, and Prince Arthur is a boy, like 13 years old. You see, magic uses compete to work along side Arthur and his court and kingdom. One will win the coveted spot of his right hand man. Morgan wants that spot, because she wants revenge for her mother's murder and to take so much restriction off of magic users. She wants to change the laws. Except some want her gone and some want her dead. And once she gets to the schooling to train for this spot, things get pretty awesome. 

Morgan has lived in hiding with her father after her mothers murder. He used to be a knight but quit to be with her. He's a sweet man and he knows what will happen if Morgan goes to this school but he won't suppress his daughter's dreams.  And so she goes, where she learns many things, including how to survive many attempted murder plots lol and she finally makes a friend. And almost a boyfriend. And she is also learning secrets and betrayals. We all know what Morgana was but I'm curious to see what Morgan will be. At the end of the book, her threat, her words, it's so... I just need more lol. 

Yes the famous Merlin, well, we're gunna see him lots. And I am not quite sure which way I'm leaning for with him. I want him to be awesome but that's because I can't help cheering for Morgan right now. Uther is still brainwashed by Mordred who is freaking evil. And Arthur well we're gunna see what will happen :) I look forward to this fascinating modern day Camelot tale! 5 PAWS!!
