The Book Knights: An Arthurian Fantasy by J.G. McKenney

Netgalley TBR

 

When her parents are condemned to death by Morgan Fay for the crime of reading, Arti Penderhagen becomes a fugitive. Hunted by Mordred, the sadistic police captain who recites poetry to enhance his physical strength, Arti escapes to the Isle of Avalon, a sanctuary for outlaws. There she meets an old librarian named Merl who tells her about the Grail Tome, an ancient book in Morgan Fay's possession that can alter the course of history. Can Arti steal the book in time to save her family? 

THE BOOK KNIGHTS is an Arthurian YA fantasy adventure in which knights wield words as weapons, librarians are wizards, and books can change the future.

Harry Potter Fans Would Enjoy This
Ice Wolves - Amie Kaufman

I almost didn't read this when I saw it was middle school level. It's hard, I'm a well aged adult, yes well aged. I like to think I'm mature and need adult level book to be entertained. But, I really loved the Illuminae Files she wrote so I dove in. I am not not mature or this was really good writing. I loved it.
The story follows two orphans, twins as they struggle to live free in a world separated by war and hate. There are humans who need protection, wolves who provide it and dragons who cause all the trouble. When one twin changes and the other goes another way the questions start forming and the truth slowly starts to unfold. One goes to be sacrificed one goes to a magical military school. There are a lot of unknowns, lies, hidden secrets and magic all new to them. One of the twins struggles with the need to save the other twin and new friendships who to trust. Meanwhile something is not adding up, and the teachers know more.
I got Harry Potter like vibes from this. Young magical child who never knew he held magic, finds he is so much more and attends a school for other like him, where a smart loner type girl befriends him. That is were the likeness ends. I think fans of Harry Potter might really enjoy this. There is no sex, no romance.

quote 2018-06-22 11:00
Flashing those perfect teeth, he stood on his tip toes and kissed Giovanni's cheek. “It was really, really hot,” he whispered, his hand lifting to touch the buttons on his shirt.
As green eyes flicked up to meet his gaze, he couldn't help himself. He caught the kid's head in his hand and dragged him into one last kiss. Their lips met halfway and it was intense right from the start.
Darren opened his mouth and whined, as he struggled to maintain the height difference. With his back already sore, from various uncomfortable positions last night, Giovanni grasped his thighs and lifted him off his feet.
A long, low 'mmph' accompanied Darren's rush to wrap legs around his waist. A tongue battled with his, as Giovanni blindly reached for the back of the armchair and managed to slid over the arm into the seat. He landed with a bump, but ignored it in favour of feeding on Darren's delicious mouth. He was on the verge of dragging him back to bed.
“Wow!”
Giovanni gently pushed Darren's chest, until they stared at each other in surprise. In unison, they looked over Darren's shoulder towards the door to the living room, where one of the youngest members of the frat house stood. “What are you gawking at?” he bit out, frustrated that they'd been interrupted.
The kid flinched and grabbed the strap of his bag, with both hands. “Um...only the hottest thing I've ever seen,” he claimed.
