      I had been fortunate to receive a copy from the author and here's my honest review.The first honest confession. For a very long period, I hadn't known that the book was around Arthurian legends and stories. So I'd been reading it and savouring it like a normal action fantasy. For some bizarre reason, I looked up the reviews on for it, and to my embarrassment, realised that I had missed out the very thing that the book was inspired from. Blame it on my lack of knowledge. (I knew I should've read [...]

      Source: I downloaded this book via Kindle Unlimited. Cost: Free Title:The Future King: LogresSeries:The Future King #1 Author:M.L. Mackworth-Praed Overall Rating:5 starsAdmittedly, the Arthurian Legends hold a nostalgic place in my heart. As a child, I grew up being told them by my Dad and I loved them so much, this is something that has stayed with me as I've gotten older. I was so excited when I was told about this book! A modern take on these legends that I love so much? Yes please!The year i [...]

      Logres: The Future King is a story of the second coming of King Arthur set in a dystopian future Britain. Our MC, Gwen, recently moved from Wales to England with her parents and now has to join a new school. She basically immediately crushes on Arthur, makes some good friends, some not so good friends, and some enemies and all that while starting to question the system she's been growing up in and trying to figure out what she wants to do about this world.Now, this review is a bit tricky, so I g [...]

      Well written, but just not for me. Maybe I'm too old for it

      An order among chaosFirst of all a huge thanks to Kavita Ramesh and the author herself for introducing me to the book and letting me have a copy of the book to read and review Before I start with the review I just want to emphasize on one thing that the book definitely do stand apart from the usual high school themed book we see and I really feel that emerge beautifully through the proceeding of the book. In spite of being filled with teenagers and everything akin to their life,from crushes, bul [...]

    6. Brian Lang says:

      A fascinating future King Arthur story with several key twists to the theme. One, all of your Arthurian favorites are essentially in high school. Two, the future political climate is authoritarian and frightening (and depicts how things could worsen from our current IRL climate). I absolutely loved M.L.'s depiction of the future. It's extremely well done. It's not presented so much as an overt authoritarianism but as a creeping sense of the government applying authority in the name of public saf [...]

      A refreshing retelling of one of the oldest and most enthralling legends of medieval fantasy.A modern--no--future take on the Arthurian legend, a creative twist that made things really interesting. The modern renditions of Arthur and Guinevere were especially inventive and tactfully done. It was interesting to see their stories play out. I was especially impressed how the author was able to switch the setting while still incorporating the chief archetypes that the original legend was known for.I [...]

    8. Arthurianmaiden says:

      This is an high school romance and novel about Guinevere and Arthur, set in the future, with some Lancelot-Guinevere-Arthur love triangle and activism/rebellion plot in it too.First things first, I have to admit that I haven't read the blurb, when I started it. This is the 200th arthurian novel I've read (yay!) and I collect arthurian novels so for me the fact that it was arthurian was enough, I didn't need the blurb to convince me to read it as I consider a blurb a summary that will let people [...]

    9. Robert Lampros says:

      An outstanding work of dystopian fiction, The Future King: Logres centers around Gwenhwyfar, a high school student who seeks a right path as her world grows increasingly dangerous. Set in mid-21st century England, Gwen and her friends must navigate a turbulent and mysterious political scene, oppressive school conditions, and the intricate landscape of their personal lives to survive and hopefully fulfill their destinies. M.L. Mackworth-Praed creates a multi-layered and inventive story, based on [...]

    10. J.M. Hofer says:

      In Logres, by M.L. Mackworth-Praed, the author offers a modern take on some of our most beloved Arthurian characters. Not surprisingly, Gwenhwyfar (Gwen) and Arthur star in the main roles. Lancelot is the “bad boy” in her telling, and Bedivere makes an appearance in a supporting role. She sets her story in a dystopian, politically-charged Britain approximately 30 years in the future.Gwen and her parents have moved from Wales to Logres, where Gwen finds herself in the awkward role of “the n [...]

    11. Robert Bjork says:

      Ernest Hemingway revised the last page of A Farewell to Arms 39 times. When asked what had stumped him, he replied, "Getting the words right." On the whole, M. L. Mackworth-Praed gets the words right in this dystopian novel set in post-Brexit Britain in 2052. A delight to read, the book is graced by a nuanced, delicate style attuned to the rich sounds and images occasioned by words and by the variegated rhythms emerging from varied syntactic constructions. If you revel in good prose as much as g [...]

      What a great retelling of a classic legend. I loved the names of the characters, echoes of the past myths. The political intrigue was exciting and well-woven. The slightly future world the author has created is realistic, dangerous, and interesting. I truly appreciate the characters being three-dimensional. The scene-setting is very well done without being overblown. Despite his bad-boy status, I enjoyed the character of Lance very much. I loved the personal interactions of the characters and th [...]

      This is my 9th Indie author review since I joined in May 2017, about 6 months ago. 4 were close to film-ready, another 4 close to sci-fi channel tv-ready. This, "Logres," would fit into the 2nd category I think, and here are a few reasons. First-off, the CHARACTER descriptions are very fluid, very much modern and realistic, but in a way that needs to unfold naturally, rather than be forced into a shoot-'em-up, zombie-crawl, or thriller-romance mold. M.L.'s WRITING STYLE is superbly adapted to t [...]

      LOGRES (The Future King, # 1) M.L. Mackworth-PraedFifteen-year-old Gwenhwyfar, the new Welsh girl at the Logres school in London, falls for a scholarly type named Arthur during a time of growing political turmoil a few decades from nowd dangerous complications arise.This is not quite an Arthurian novel and not quite your typical YA dystopian novel, either. The setting is England in 2052 – although the daily technology in many places seemed to me to be closer to 2000. The government is proto-fa [...]

    15. TarZen says:

      Wow! I don't have any words to describe what I just read. Logres is definitely one of those books that leaves you feeling kind of shocked in a good way!

    16. Kelly Diserens says:

      When I first started reading it I didn't have the time to sit and properly engage with the story so it took me a little while to get to grips with the characters and develop an interest in them. Having said that, once I had more available time, I really wanted to find out what happened to the characters. The idea of setting the Arthurian legend in the future is a really good one and the way that the society is described, with the 'big brother' mentality of the government, definitely left me with [...]

    17. Kristof says:

      I'm a novice when it comes to the Arthurian legends. The blurry line between history and myth is of course a fascinating one, and leaves plenty of room to work with in fiction. The Future King, as the title suggests, takes that line into the future and runs wild with it. I started reading without any idea what to expect, and kept reading until its thundering conclusion 500 pages later. Can't wait for the sequel.

    18. Monique says:

      I really did like this story, although I am usually not the type to enjoy any kind of historic fiction.The way the story was build was really pleasant and easy to read. Such a petty the next book is not a sure thing (yet?).If you do not like open ends maybe you should not read this, because the open ending is quite obvious and can bother you. But all in all, it is a good and enjoyable story.
