This is the third book in an urban fantasy Camelot retelling where the last battle between the knights of the round table and Mordrid hasnt happened yet. The Destined One must reunite the knights and reclaim the lost relics of Camelot in order to defeat Mordrid once and for all. In this installement we get to explore more of Camelots past. We follow the same characters but at a different time in their lives. We get a few scenes in the present time but not enough in my opinion.To be honest I felt like a good chunk of this book dragged on. There was a lot of details and uneventful scenes that didnt seem that important. I was in that kind of mood where I just didnt care how many ribbons her dress had. I know why the author repeated a lot of info we learned in the first two books but it was really boring reading through those first couple chapters. I read the other two books back to back and remembered everything so it felt very redundant for me.I had to reread a lot of scenes several times because I just couldnt focus. I think it could have been edited down a bit to make it flow better. Its not that there wasnt any action because there was, its just the inbetween parts felt longer than they really were. I noticed a couple errors and a scene where the author wrote Merlins name when I know she meant Mordrids and Morgana hiding spot. I also didnt understand why Aliana didnt understand the gypsie song if she cast a spell to be able to understand different languages.I missed the characters from the first two books, especially the main character best friends Dawn and Lacy. I loved the whole underworld scene and when Aliana finally meets up with her best friends to kick butt. I enjoyed learning more about Camelot and the knights past. We get some heart warming reunions that totally made me gush. Dagg was still one of my favorite characters. I loved meeting Vira and Arthurs mother. The last half of the story was a lot better and I managed to read it quicker. The first half felt like 2.5 Star while the last half was more of a 4 Star so I ended up rating this 3 Stars but it could easily have been a 3.5 Star book if I had been in a better reading mood. Looking back on it now Id probably give it a 3.5 Star rating. I was sick with gallstones and in the hospital emergency waiting room while reading this so maybe that effected my enjoyement. I was already irratable and had a hard time concentrating.I hope I get a chance to review the fourth book as Im already really invested in the story and the characters. Urban fantasy hasnt really been my thing lately and I really appreciated how this series doesnt feel like your typical urban fantasy. Ive never read a Camelot retelling but I found it rather entertaining making comparisons to what I already know of King Arthur and the season of Once Upon a Time that Im currently watching. *Received a copy in exchange for an honest review*Popular Relics of Camelot Author L.H.

  2. I just had to get this one as soon as it became available and once I did finished it in under 2 days I couldn t put it down I loved getting to see all the Knights and King Arthur back before they were cursed and how they interacted with each other and a total stranger which Aliana was to them I LOVED the new characters Guinevere, Queen Igraine Arthur s mother , Sophvira Galahad s sister and Delphina I couldn t believe her whole revelation view spoiler She s Arthur s ghost girl Or at least we tho [...]


  3. I ve enjoyed this series and give this third book a solid four out of five stars.This book felt longer than the first two and that gave time for the character arc to feel natural Aliana finally becomes worthy of her title in this book I m still annoyed by the strange love triangle if you ve read my other reviews, you know I m not a fan , but there are hints now that there s a magical reason.Some of the secrets were uncovered As with the other books, the epilogue sets up the next book It looks l [...]


  4. I ve had such mixed feelings with these books I love the idea of this story I love what the author is trying to do, and I really do love elements of this series I like Aliana as a character and I feel like she s growing in each book, which is definitely a good thing But I m still not really invested in this love triangle and I still find these books to be rather slow reading I want to be in love with these books, but there s just a gap for me between my love for the story line and my ambivalence [...]

  7. The third book is Relics of Camelot and it doesn t get any better Aliana is still the most perfect person in the world, despite her victim complex and how stupid she is, LaDawn are still annoying, and King Arthur and the Knights are still worshiping at Aliana s feet.Read my review of the entire series here magicandmachinesssicaandgra
