This was the kind of book that if you like the Percy Jackson series you will probably like this one. Artie finds that he is different and not just different but extremely special in being King Authur.
Artie goes on this journey following clues. It is a fun ride to see everything that he has to go through and who he meets. Plus he has to deal with the fact that he is King Arthur. I also like that this started with a video game. You see this sometimes where a kid will play a game and things start coming to life like the game or someone that has played the game is the only one who can save the world.
Those stories happen but they don't happen very often that it would be a tiring storyline. So, take a look and let someone tell Artie that he is King Arthur and find out what really happens to him.
Part of the spell has already been broken.
The first stones have begun to crumble.
In Artie Kingfisher's world, wizards named Merlin, fire-breathing dragons, and swords called Excalibur exist only in legends and lore-until the day his video game Otherworld springs to life.
You are special, Arthur,
Says the mysterious message in his game.
In one week's time you will come to me at the it.
Cryptic clues lead Artie to a strange place called the Invisible Tower, where he discovers that nothing in his life is as it seems. Artie is none other than King Arthur, brought to life in the twenty-first century. Artie has won the battle in the virtual Otherworld-now the key to saving the real Otherworld lies in his hands as well.
Green dragons, hungry wolves, powerful sorcerers-suddenly Artie must battle them all as he wields Excalibur and embarks on a quest worthy of the Knights of the Round Table. With his sister, Kay, by his side, Artie steps into the Otherworld-straight toward his destiny.
