Lucan
Pendragon Legacy, Book 1

by Susan Kearney

     

Lucan Roarke and his twin sister, Marisa, knew that Earth was dying. No children had been born in the last 20 years. Every human being on Earth was sterile, and all efforts by scientific researchers to correct the condition had failed. Their only hope was to find the Holy Grail King Arthur had hidden in Avalon. However, finding Avalon had proved impossible until Lucan and Marisa went exploring and found a different cave. There was a crack in the floor and Marisa fell through it into a cold river underground. Lucanís efforts to save her failed, and they were both swept downstream. However, they finally came out of the cave to a muddy bank. While there, Lucan found an old parchment with a map, a star map to Avalon.

Avalon was an obelisk located on a moon in a distant solar system. The moon was called Pendragon, which was King Arthurís last name. However, the obelisk had a shield that proved impenetrable by even Earthís technology, which was farther advanced than that on Pendragon. There was also a sinkhole opening up under the obelisk that threatened to swallow Avalon before they could get to the Holy Grail. If they failed, the human species on Earth would be extinct in a couple of generations.

Lucan is a story that keeps your attention from beginning to end. However, the real story is told around the romance between Lucan and the Dragonian High Priestess, Cael. Personally, I feel that the graphic sex was totally unnecessary. The romance could have been told without it. There was very little profanity in this one, a refreshing situation. I enjoyed the book minus the sex. The complications that arise compel you to read every word. Without some of the graphic sex, the book takes you on a delightful adventure. Pick up Lucan and watch out for the other volumes in "The Pendragon Legacy."
