Book Review Of “Once & Future” By Amy Rose Capetta And Cori McCarthy @jimmy_books @AmyRoseCapetta @CoriMcCarthy


I’ve been chased my whole life. As a fugitive refugee in the territory controlled by the tyrannical Mercer corporation, I’ve always had to hide who I am. Until I found Excalibur.

Now I’m done hiding.

My name is Ari Helix. I have a magic sword, a cranky wizard, and a revolution to start.


When Ari crash-lands on Old Earth and pulls a magic sword from its ancient resting place, she is revealed to be the newest reincarnation of King Arthur. Then she meets Merlin, who has aged backward over the centuries into a teenager, and together they must break the curse that keeps Arthur coming back. Their quest? Defeat the cruel, oppressive government and bring peace and equality to all humankind

Thank you Jimmy Patterson Books for gifting me a copy of this book, in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Simply put, I loved this book, everything about it. I love that it ripped my heart out, and I love that it put it back together. This was the perfect retelling, and the cover is freaking stunning.

This is my first Capetta and McCarthy book, and honestly I need them to hurry up and right the second book to this, because I need more, and I need it now. I am so in love with this cast of characters, and I need to see what happens next for them, because that was one hell of a cliff hanger. I love Ari, and Merlin, and lady Gwen, and all of the Knights. They are such an eclectic group, but they also balance each other out perfectly.

My one complaint originally had been how fast the relationships progressed, but then I realized they had to, because a lot of things happened in this book, so there wasn’t any time to drag things out, and once I realized that I appreciated it very much.

“It’s true, I’m no murderer. But I do have an impulse control problem. And a sword.
