Book Review: The Revenge of Excalibur by Sahara Foley

The Revenge of Excalibur is the second in Sahara Foley’s Excalibur Saga. I enjoyed the story.The Revenge of Excalibur by Sahara Foley cover Arthur’s daughter Pamela is the heroine of this story, though she’s somewhat of a reluctant heroine. She has the same abilities of her father, which makes living a normal life on earth difficult. Pam withdraws socially because she cannot fully be herself among ordinary people who do not understand and fear her gifts when they find out.  Though Arthur left to live on another planet before she was born, Pam is whisked away to save her father and his alien wife, who are the King and Queen of Calen. 

The Calens who took Pam to help rescue their King and Queen had to give Pam a short history of their people before she was willing to do what needed to be done for the rescue to be successful. I understood that Pam needed to know these things, but, I found that part becoming tedious and it terminated at just about that point. Pam interrupted the speakers because she too was getting tired of the history lesson. I’m not sure the author intended it to be that way or not, but, I thought it interesting that the protagonist had the same thought as I at about the same point in the story. Good timing.

There is some telepathic voyeurism which I find a disturbing concept though it was part of the character development. Pam is rather immature and belligerent at first though she does step up to the challenges faced in the rescue. I did find the fixation on her love interest a little excessive, but, she’s young and the unique bond that was developed explained her fixation. There is a little alien ménage taking place near the latter part of the story.  I would not recommend the book for teens under 18 because of the sexual content. The character development was well done and the plot is good with a satisfactory ending, though it wasn’t what I expected from the beginning.

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.
