A Celtic scholar is brutally murdered when she discovers a clue to a priceless fifth-century manuscript that could prove the identity of King Arthur. Determined to find the ancient relic and avenge her sister's death, Maren Southcott begins a quest that immediately puts her own life in danger.
In the tradition of Mary Higgins Clark, The Arthurian Omen weaves a tale of mystery and suspense as pursuit of the manuscript winds through the medieval castles and monasteries of Wales. Stalked by a psychopath with delusions of a Welsh revolution, Maren is shaken to the core when a new crisis threatens to destroy the one person she loves most.
Can she find the manuscript before the murderer strikes again? Or, is the manuscript--and the legend--better left buried in the past? Summary from Dust Jacket
I found out about this book through my ward’s book club. The author’s LDS and lives in Provo. She came, as a special guest, to the book club meeting. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to go.
I liked the book, even though it felt like there were too many story lines going on at the same time and the ending was a little disappointing. I’m not really sure why the ending felt disappointing, except that I was expecting more. The story had a good concept. And, the mystery surrounding the story was very intriguing. I also liked the alternate theory of the Arthurian Legend since I’m a big fan of King Arthur and Camelot. I actually wished the story would’ve focused on that aspect of the story more.
