Publisher's Summary

Four cursed knights. One Warrior Princess. A faerie sword that binds their lives together...

Fionna's only hope to save her family lies across the Irish Sea. As a warrior princess of Ulster, the rival clan holding her father and sister for ransom knows she'll pay any price to get them back. But even she couldn't predict the task set before her - to steal a faerie sword from a king.

The Kingdom of Caerleon is dying under Morgan le Fay's dark magic. Her vengeful curse has locked Excalibur in its scabbard, placing Arthur Pendragon's kingship in jeopardy. Now Arthur and his sword brothers - Lancelot, Galahad, and Percival - have but one hope. The fifth knight. The one foretold by Merlin who will break the curse and heal the land.

But Arthur and his sword brothers didn't expect the warrior to be a fierce and captivating woman. Or the legendary White Fay, prophesied by Morgan la Fay to destroy Caerleon by claiming the heart of a king and three sworn knights.

Contains mature themes.

Excellent

I absolutely love this take on Arthur and his knights. Fionna sets out on a quest to rescue her sister and father. This was a very good book.

Great story! Excellent narration!

I'm an RH lover for sure and the idea of this story was interesting to me as someone that also enjoys kings, knights, castles, princesses, and fae. The story is quite unique and the characters are fantastic. The narrators are top notch and that makes all the difference in the world when the different accents play a role in the individual characters. There is some steam but not a whole lot. It's more romance without being too mushy. So if you're hoping for lots of sex then this isn't what your looking for. Fionna is a badass warrior that isn't afraid to show a bit of weakness around the men in her life. I'm kind of burnt out on the whole "I'm a badass that can't show my feelings" characters and Fionna definitely has more depth than that. I can't wait to read the next in the series!

Interesting storyline!

I loved the storyline. It was a fun story but I would have liked to read it before listening. The narrator was not my favorite. I did not think the gentleman narrating worked the voices well enough and the female voices were nasally so it was hard to follow along while doing other things like working or cleaning. The female narrating didn’t convey emotions through her voice either.

Overall a great story. I would like to read it to see if I missed anything while trying to follow along. Fiona is awesome and kickass.

King Arthur Reverse Harem

I really enjoyed listening to this book. The narrators did a fantastic job. This story was a very creative way to turn the classic King Arthur Tales into a reverse harem. Fiona is the FMC and she becomes the fifth knight. She has to decide to stay loyal to Arthur or betray him and the other knights. I can't wait to see where this story continues in the next book. I recommend this book if you enjoy RH and fantasy.

A new twist on the King Arthur legend

This book was delightfully surprising. I found it quite enjoyable. The narration was super. The accents authentic. The story will continue, but this book had a satisfying conclusion. I recommend it.

I want more

The Fifth Knight has a unique take on King Arthur and his Knights. The story also includes Merlin & Morganah the Fae. Fiona is a tough, highly skilled fighter, and irresistible princess given a task to save her family only to find her heart and morals getting in the way. This story is interesting, entertaining, and memorable. It does end on a small cliffhanger but I’m looking forward to the next book! The narrators did a good job! I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
