The Other Merlin is a take on the Knights of the Round Table, set in Camelot. Arthur, Lancelot and Emry Merlin (daughter of the renowned wizard) are all teenagers in London. Emry, forced to take her twin brother's spot at court due to a magical mishap, is navigating her way around new court customs while Arthur, who recently drew the sword from the stone, is navigating a new role at court. This YA fantasy is engaging and interesting - a sure must-read!

The jacket cover illustrates the story's interesting take on Merlin as a female (whose bisexuality is refreshingly not a major plot point). Overall, the writing is reminiscent of J.K. Rowling and creates a world that draws the reader in - I can't wait to read more!
