Sword in the Stars


About The Book

A genderqueer romance of intergalactic proportions. The brilliant sequel to Once & Future

To save humanity’s future, Ari, Merlin and the Knights of the Rainbow must pull off a heist thousands of years in the past, and travel back in time to the unenlightened Middle Ages to steal King Arthur’s Grail.

But the time travellers must tread carefully. If they come face-to-face with the original Arthurian legend, it could alter the course of history. It’s a risky game of lies and chivalry for Ari, while Merlin confronts his nemesis, unravelling the dark truth about his wizard origins in this galaxy-altering conclusion.
