[Review] - Percival's Angel

Title: Percival's Angel
Author: Anne Eliot Crompton
Series: Arthurian
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: March 1, 2011

I received this book for review from Sourcebooks.

Summary:  Lili's eyes can see in the dark like an owl. She can sense spirit auras of all creatures and perform magic more powerful than most. But because Lili is Fey, she does not possess the world's greatest power--Love.

Lili wants to understand Love more than anything, and her human friend Percy is just the right person to help. Together they begin a treacherous journey--for nothing is more dangerous than the power of the human heart.

Thoughts: Lili is fey, once part of the Children Guard. She yearns to learn about the human heart and this power called "Love", that Merlin speaks of. Her friend Percy is a human that was raised in the Fey Forest. Never knowing of King Arthur or his Knights.  They embark on a journey together to the human world to seek out what they most desire.

Percival's Angel is the third book in Crompton's Arthurian series and my first time delving into the series. A mystical and magical tale. The writing is like nothing I've read before.  It's written in such a way that is almost poetic, which made for a delightful story. I was most intrigued and in the end enjoyed reading it. I have always loved the King Arthur legends, especially from the female point of view.  I think fans of Fantasy and Arthurian Legends will like this one too.

Score: 3 Stars
