Summary:

Four cursed knights. One Warrior Princess. A faerie sword that binds their lives together.

Fionna's only hope to save her family lies across the Irish Sea. As a warrior princess of Ulster, the rival clann holding her father and sister for ransom knows she'll pay any price to get them back. But even she couldn't predict the task set before her-to steal a faerie sword from a king.

The Kingdom of Caerleon is dying under Morgan la Fay's dark magic. Her vengeful curse has locked Excalibur in its scabbard, placing Arthur Pendragon's kingship in jeopardy. Now Arthur and his sword brothers-Lancelot, Galahad, and Percival-have but one hope. The fifth knight. The one foretold by Merlin who will break the curse and heal the land.

But Arthur and his sword brothers didn't expect the warrior to be a fierce and captivating woman. Or the legendary White Fay, prophesied by Morgan la Fay to destroy Caerleon by claiming the heart of a king and three sworn knights.

Contains mature themes.

    The Fifth Knight is an engaging Arthurian fantasy with a reverse harem twist. In this story, Fiona is blackmailed into stealing Excalibur, and in the process of trying to do so meets Arthur, Lancelot, Gawain, and Percival. She develops feelings for them immediately while still being a strong warrior. I have read reviews from others, even one person calling Fiona a Mary Sue. I would disagree on this point. A Mary Sue is a perfect person who can do no wrong and who everyone love immediately. It would be Mary Sue-ish if she could wield Excalibur better than Arthur could, but she doesn’t. Her battle skills are great, including besting Gawain. While that would be impossible for a normal human woman, it Fiona has fae blood, something that has long been secret from herself. The story moves quickly, but it’s a fun read. This also means the infatuation plot moves just as quickly. I’m not a fan of insta-love, but this is mostly not portrayed as love but attraction that might turn into love with the right nurturing. For those readers who are new to reverse harem stories, this might seem implausible and outlandish. Those readers might not enjoy this story. If you’re willing to try, then this promises to be interesting on that front. If you’re not interested in any of the love aspects of the story, the adventure is still great, and I wonder how it will unfold over the series. I did listen to this as an audiobook, and the two narrators are very skilled. My only complaints are mild and have to do with the male narrator. He sounds much older than the age of the characters he’s narrating. (Arthur here is 23.) He also pronounced Zephyr in an odd way. Had I not already heard it in context earlier in the story from the female narrator, I might have missed it entirely. In the end, a fun book. Give it a shot!
