This book report is on the novel Sword of the Rightful King written by Jane Yolen The book is about the newly crowned King Arthur who rules the kingdom but not the peoples hearts If he fails to prove his worth his power will always be in question Too many want him dead and treachery is everywhere So the warlock Merlinnus secretley creates a test for Arthur A sword in a stone is founded-a stone that contains a legend promising that whosoever draws the blade from the stone will rule all England If all goes according to plan King Arthur will draw the blade from the stone With the help of Merlinnuss magic and the people will at last rally around the king Except someone else pulls the sword out first A young man by the name of Gawaine occasionally ventures to Arthurs court to practice swordsmanship and meet new folk His mother Morgause demands him to tell her everything that happens at Arthurs court yet Gawaine angrily refuses Three days later he set off for the court along with three of his younger brother Medraut Agravaine and Hwyll Once they arrive Gawaine becomes an even closer friend to the king but Arthur suspects the brothers were sent to kill him due to the mothers desire to have her children rule all Britain While the brothers are visiting Merlinnus starts to put his plan into effect He puts the stone in the churchyard for all to see and a crowd starts to gather Arthur holds a contest in which whoever pulls out the sword will obtain the crown I would recommend this book because it has an excellent storyline that is loaded with adventure action and romance The suspense urges you to read on and the endless fighting sequences have continous replay value It was a pleasure to read this book and Im sure many readers would enjoy it also
