A new King Arthur has risen and she's got a universe to save


Coming to terms with your identity is always difficult. But for Ari, the 42nd reincarnation of King Arthur, it just got a whole lot more complicated. Gender-bending royalty, caustic wit and a galaxy-wide fight for peace and equality all collide in this epic adventure.


With an awkward adolescent Merlin and a rusty spaceship, this is the Arthurian legend as you have never before seen it.

  • 'A marvellous mythology remix for teens who enjoy action-packed speculative fiction and genderqueer romance,' – Publishers Weekly starred review.

    'A rip-roaring, no holds-barred, gloriously queer reinvention of Arthurian legend,' – Malinda Lo, author of Ash.

    'Oh my goodness, I loved it so much! Utterly compelling, brilliantly witty, and delightfully queer, I absolutely raced through it and loved every second. It was so refreshing to see LGBTQIA characters front and centre of the plot, being the heroes and saving the day,' – Simon James Green, author of Noah Can't Even.
