The Future King: Logres (review)

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 the Arthurian legends, through concise and descriptive prose and a unique sensitivity to the elements of successful storytelling.  This is an amazing novel and a great literary achievement.
* some bad language, brief violence, and scenes of physical intimacy

Summary:  Britain, 2052.  In a world of war, disease and hunger the UK stands alone as a beacon of prosperity under an all-powerful ruling party.  Life at new school Logres seems promising for fifteen-year-old Gwenhwyfar, and quickly she falls for the school’s handsome catch, Arthur.  When Arthur’s rival, Lancelot, returns after a suspension, her heart is soon divided.  Realising that behind the UK’s prosperity lies unspeakable cruelty, Gwenhwyfar sets off on a path to dismantle everything the government stands for.  Suspenseful, raw and awash in a dystopian setting, The Future King: Logres is a story of identity and discovery against this backdrop, the second coming of the Arthurian legends.

Author Bio:  I’m a prolific doodler, which over the years has translated into being an illustrator; a here-there artist who dabbles with embroidery, and a keen writer with a taste for fantasy, sci-fi and young adult fiction.  I just self-published my first novel, The Future King: Logres, an Arthurian second-coming set in dystopian 2052 Britain.  If you like YA Fantasy or are a lover of the Arthurian legends then check it out!
