Owen weaves a charming fantasy tale in this novel that takes beloved stories and weaves them together. The legend of King Arthur is blended with Dickens characters and Greek Mythology. I've seen re-tellings of Greek myths and Arthurian legends before, but it is rare to find a book that involves re-tellings of stories drawn from so many sources. Even the three main characters are famous authors. Whether or not you’ve read the various stories it is based on, you’ll enjoy this fast-paced fantasy adventure.
