A Dog in King Arthur’s Court (Cavall in Camelot #1)
Follow Cavall as he embarks on a quest that will put the unbreakable bond between a dog and his person to the ultimate test.
When Cavall and his older brother, Glessic, leave the comfort of their simple barn to join the lavish court of Camelot, Cavall wants nothing more than to prove he’s a good dog to the great knights and dogs of the castle—especially to King Arthur.
But Gless says only the best dogs are worthy of greatness, and Cavall has never been as strong, brave, or fast as his brother.
Meanwhile, malevolent forces lurk in Camelot, and Cavall must figure out how to protect his person. To make matters worse, Arthur’s mysterious nightmares are threatening to shake his grip on reality and undermine his authority as king.
To fight back against the dangers of the dream world, Cavall will need help from some loyal hounds and the enchanting, sometimes frightening creatures who call themselves the fay.
In this captivating debut from Audrey Mackaman, Cavall will have to prove not only that he can be a good dog for his person, but that he is capable of a greatness all his own.
Refreshing and Original!
A DOG IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT is told from the point of view of a dog named Cavall. While out running with his brother Glessic, they run into King Arthur while he's out on a hunt. King Arthur is in need of a hunting dog, so he takes in Cavall. Cavall is so excited to have a person, but it isn't as easy as he thought it would be.
In King Arthur's home, there are rules and Cavall must be on his best behavior to avoid embarrassing his person. He's lucky to have other dogs in the court to help show him the way. Cavall is happy his brother is with him too, but Glessic isn't as willing to have a person as Cavall is. As dangers present themselves, Cavall must be his best to protect his person at all costs.
I love dogs and King Arthur and it was so much fun to read a story that combined the two. This one held my attention the whole time and I didn't think I would like it as much as I did because it was from a dog's POV. Instead, it's refreshing and different and I look forward to more books like this.
Final Verdict: This book is perfect for fans of dogs, King Arthur, adventure, and standing up for what's right.
