What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Arlena had no idea that magic existed.
She’s never fit in, but didn’t exactly think it was because she’s the literal stuff of legend.
When a sword-wielding maniac and a giant boar try to kill her, four handsome knights save her, and tell her she’s their lost queen.
Just like that, she’s whisked away into a world of shifter knights and magic.
Can she accept her place as a returned queen? Or will the world of magic reject her, too?
My Thoughts on Knight Hunted
I love pretty much anything pertaining to Arthurian Legends, so of course I snapped this Kindle Unlimited book up….. and now I am not quite sure what to think. One one hand, it’s unique and presents a rather twisted, modern approach to the legend. On the other hand, it is far too fast, with far too few details and jumps around in a hyperactive fashion that annoyed more than intrigued.
In so many ways, this feels like a ‘starter’ book – and it surely has potential, it just needs some work. A few edits, a beta reader or two, and this story could be a solid punch to the RH genre. As it stands, it will take a patient reader, though it truly DOES have some resoundingly good selling points, from shapeshifting knights to reborn villains, a gender swapped ‘king’ to an eccentric wizard. Like I said, there are some really good parts about it. They just need to fit together a bit better.
Yet despite my misgivings, it is still earning a 3.5 from me for several reasons: It’s Arthurian. It has too few reviews, and I will continue the series.

My Final Verdict on Knight Hunted
This is an interesting tale that weaves through a mythology it is trying to make its own. It’s not perfect, but there is something about it that requires a bit further exploration. King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table? Who wouldn’t love that?
