Reviewed by Foluso Falaye for Readers' Favorite

Despite a promising prophecy, seventeen-year-old Ryan is weighed down by powerful emotions. Ryan is the predicted chosen one, and he must use the sword Excalibur to help a secret agency called the ORT. His destiny is to save his homeworld from evil terrorists and establish a code of peace. Apart from having to fight the fierce monsters called fomori, he must defeat an old rival driven by passionate hatred and a lust for power. To make matters worse, Ryan feels betrayed by his parents for keeping his true identity a secret. Will Ryan be able to fulfill his destiny while facing monumental obstacles? Excalibur's Pendragon: Book One of the Aethervard Legacy by Parker C. Wilson spins a powerful tale about magic and a gifted young protagonist who struggles with feeling betrayed by those he once trusted.

If you're looking for an addictive plot, you're in for a treat. Right from the beginning, you get a clue about the exciting developments that are likely to spring up later in the story. For example, Ryan's mother trains him physically in preparation for his future role, prompting the reader to picture and anticipate a time when his skills would come in handy. The plot maintains a thrilling string of events throughout. From aliens and other worlds to fierce monsters and intricate magic, the otherworldly themes are expertly portrayed. I strongly recommend Excalibur's Pendragon to readers of young adult books and tales that evoke deep imagination. Parker C. Wilson's fast-paced, action-packed fantasy had me canceling some of my plans because I couldn't wait to unravel the plot. Now that I'm done, I'm very eager to read the sequel since the story ends with a cliffhanger.
