Product description

Product Description

‘This novel has the type of cross age-appeal as say, Harry Potter or Percy Jackson. Kids will love it, but so will the adults!’
Indie Book Reviews.

Packed with action and adventure, fantasy and magic, perfect for middle-grade children, and boys and girls of all ages, including teens and adults! The Golden Sword is a present-day coming of age King Arthur book with a twist; a mystery story from beginning to end.


Finalist in the 2014 Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards;
2015 IndieBRAG Medallion honouree;
Nominated for the 2015 Holyer an Gof Awards.

Arthur Penhaligon thinks he’s just an ordinary kid but his destiny is calling and it involves a sword ... of the legendary variety.
Skateboarding might just have to take second place.
Who is the mysterious Crow Man? Why is he following Arthur and his friends? And who is the new teacher who's arrived at school?

Arthur and his friends find themselves sucked into an epic world of magic, mystery and danger.
A world where people travel through time, animals take control, and rivals are willing to resort to murder.
Myth and legend, fantasy and adventure have never seemed so real, or so dangerous.

Excalibur is waiting.

THE GOLDEN SWORD is the first in this epic fantasy series.
It’s Arthurian, but not as you know it.

A thrilling mystery and fantasy book with action & adventure. Ideal for boys and girls and teenagers from 10 to 14 and older.

The second and third in THE CAMELOT INHERITANCE series have now been released:
THE TIME SMUGGLERS and MERLIN’S VOW continue the story of Arthur’s quest – and the story of four teenagers, some ancient knights ... and a dragon (a very tiny one), pitted against time-defying enemies.
Camelot is calling.


When I was about 10 -14 years old, I loved reading action & adventure stories and mysteries filled with magic. I used to haunt our local library, borrowing anything with a vaguely magical theme. It had to be well-written with a gripping story, action-filled and a page-turner. (My all-time favourite author? C.S.Lewis.) So the seeds were sown. One day I’d write books for children too!

The next question: So is this book for boys or girls?
The answer: For both!
Boys and girls between the ages of 10-14, teens and preteens, have read and loved it; although lots of adults are enjoying it too!
If you love a fast-paced fantasy, then THE CAMELOT INHERITANCE series could be right for you.
I'd be absolutely delighted (and honoured) if you like it enough to leave a review.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Golden Sword 25 November 2014
By R3 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I always enjoy a tale that has anything to do with King Arthur, and this one was no exception. The beginning reminded me a bit about the first book of Harry Potter, but the rest of the story is its own unique tale. I think the fact that it is set in modern times will appeal more to today's MG/YA groups, who may not understand much of the Arthurian times.

The book is well-written with well-developed characters, even down to the animals. There are a lot of lovely descriptions and it was easy to find myself swept away with the excitement and adventure these young people were going through. The glimmers into other dimensions was well done and easy to understand. This will definitely be a book the young and old alike will enjoy reading.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, I loved the chapter images. They are beautiful and intricate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Story 13 August 2013
By This Kid Reviews Books - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Arthur Penhaligon didn't know why a strange "Crow Man" was following him and his friends around. Or why that man would break into Arthur's house just to change Arthur's screen saver for his computer. Or why storms keep happening whenever the Crow Man is around - it's the middle of August and HAIL is coming down! And there is also the small matter of a big army of cats protecting the group of friends. Something strange is going on... Arthur finds himself being captured by unknown enemies and caught up in a battle between good and evil.

Don't think this is another King Arthur story because of the name. This one is very different! I love the action in this book, and the plot was great. The characters were very good and likeable. There were a couple of instances when characters appear in the story and were not introduced to the reader right away that I found a bit confusing (like when Tamar first appeared). The book was a quick read and very appropriate for any age. The ending left me wanting more! I will be looking for the second book in the series to come out. I think the cover is good, but I wish it showed a golden sword!
**NOTE - I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

5.0 out of 5 stars The Golden Sword 23 September 2013
By Elise - Published on

I wondered what the title had to do with the story until the end of the book and I am still wondering. Is this Arthur a reincarnation of King Arthur or is he someone completely different. It was hard to tell. One thing that does need more work is having all of Arthur's and the readers questions answered. Just who is he and what is his purpose in Cornwall. King Arthur may have been born int Tintengel, but he lived or may lived near Glastonbury (Avalon) according to legend which is where Camelot was supposedly located. If the Arthur in the story is King Arthur, just who are Nick and Tamara supposed to be? And what about Arthur's parents. Weren't both Igraine and Uther dead by the time Arthur becomes King at age 15, and just how old is this Arthur supposed to be 11-12 something like that. I do no know what parents are like in Brittan, but having a pair of 11 year old twins I will not let them just go off on their own, without knowing where, with who, and when they will be coming back. I also expect that they are accompanied by a responsible adult or older sibling. There are too many dangers in this world to let young people just wonder off by themselves. I do like that fact that both of my sons enjoyed this story and want to know when the next installment is coming out. I do like the fact that there is no sex, bad language or violence in this story All too many times books these days have all of that for kids of a very impressionable age. I try to make sure that my sons don't get hold of it, but it is not easy and I for one am greatfull to the author for writing this story. Even I want to know when the next installment comes out. GOOD READ ALL AROUND.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legends meets modern day 2 July 2014
By Jayem - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. The kids were easy to relate to, and just how you'd expect kids to be.
It was easy to feel Arthur's frustrations when everyone around you knows what's going on and answer your questions with lines like, "You'll find out when the time is right." The only person who doesn't know is the one person who should know.
The supernatural characters had that air of mystery about them. I was particularly taken with the Watchers and Writer.

Even if kids don't know the legend of Arthur. this story should keep them interested. There is plenty of room for development for the series. It will be a fun journey to see where it goes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aurthurian Legend Reborn 2 December 2013
By Jodi - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is another great allegory. I love all things Arthurian and this one was no exception. It defiantly doesn't fit the mold of the usual Kink Arthur legends. The young man (no age is given, but I am assuming high school age) and two of his friends in modern Cornwall, face up against an old evil, with the help of some strange characters. A good read and I am looking forward to the next book. I recommend for ages pre-teen and up. I give "The Golden Sword" 4 stars.
