Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy
I’ve been chased my whole life. An illegal immigrant in Mercer-controlled territory, I’ve always had to hide who I am. Until now.
When Ari crash lands on Old Earth, and pulls a magic sword from its ancient resting place, she becomes the forty-second reincarnation of King Arthur. Merlin awakes to find that having aged backward over the last forty-one Arthurs, he is now-wretchedly-a teenager. Ari may be Merlin’s final chance to complete the steps of the cycle: 1) Train Arthur 2) Defeat the greatest evil in the universe. 3) Unite all of mankind. No pressure.
I don’t know about prophecies or kings, but I do know this: Mercer is evil. They’ve imprisoned my parents, enslaved worlds, and now they’re after my friends. I’m done hiding.
My name is Ari Helix. I have a magic sword, a cranky wizard, and a revolution to start.
This sounds so good and if you follow my reviews, you’ve probably noticed that I’m loving all the James Patterson Presents books. I’m getting an arc of this soon and I’m so excited. Have you had a chance to read it yet?
