Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange  for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book: 
It’s a big bowl of mashed Arthurian Legend with hints of Hunger Games and Harry Potter folded in. Henge is the sort of book that’s rapidly becoming my favorite — a classic recipe infused with a new round of flavor. The writing wasn’t earth-shattering, but then . . . I don’t eat mac-and-cheese when I’m hungry for seviche. It’s a fun, tasty version of Camelot, and I can’t wait to read the next installment.

Would I recommend it: If seeing teenage versions of Morgan and Merlin exchanging cell phone numbers isn’t reason enough to read this book I don’t know what is. Go for it.

About the book – from Goodreads: 
Modern-day Camelot. Where knights no longer carry swords. Magic is dangerous. And those who seek control are not to be trusted.

Sixteen-year-old Morgan le Fay is a fire user. An ordinary girl with an extraordinary skill, she has the ability to create and command fire at will. Her dream is to become the Maven—the right hand of the future King Arthur. In the chance of a lifetime, Morgan is selected to join Arthur’s Round, an elite group of young magic users from which the new Maven will be chosen.

Along with the other fire, water, and wind users in Arthur’s Round, Morgan is rigorously trained and tested. The handsome Merlin, a brilliant water user, takes a particular interest in her. Is his friendship to be trusted, or is Merlin simply trying to win the position of Maven for himself? Among the many rivals Morgan faces is the current Maven, Mordred, who seems determined to see her fail.

But Morgan has a secret—years ago, her mother was executed for using fire magic, and Morgan’s desire for justice makes her more than ready to take on the challenge before her. Can she prevail in Camelot’s tests of survival and magic? Only time—and Morgan’s powerful fire—will tell.
