A new King Arthur has risen and she's got a universe to save

Coming to terms with your identity is always difficult. But for Ari, the 42nd reincarnation of King Arthur, it just got a whole lot more complicated. Gender-bending royalty, caustic wit and a galaxy-wide fight for peace and equality all collide in this epic adventure.

With an awkward adolescent Merlin and a rusty spaceship, this is the Arthurian legend as you have never before seen it.

Review:

'A marvelous mythology remix for teens who enjoy action-packed speculative fiction and genderqueer romance.'

(Publishers Weekly starred review)

'Recommended to fans of Avalon High by Meg Cabot and Damar by Robin McKinley... A must-have for young adult collections.' (School Library Journal starred review)

'A rip-roaring, no holds-barred, gloriously queer reinvention of Arthurian legend.'

(Malinda Lo, author of Ash)

'Oh my goodness, I loved it so much! Utterly compelling, brilliantly witty, and delightfully queer, I absolutely raced through it and loved every second. It was so refreshing to see LGBTQIA characters front and centre of the plot, being the heroes and saving the day. And the humour is sharp and genuinely funny – who doesn’t love a barbed Spice Girls reference?!'

(Simon James Green, author of Noah Can't Even)

'Like White’s book, this manages to be exciting, earnest, and funny, and Capetta and McCarthy unapologetically take jabs at our current political climate.'

(Booklist)

‘All hail this worthier-than-ever, fresh, and affirming reincarnation of the legendary king and her round table of knights which dazzles with heroic flair, humour, and suspense.’

(Kirkus starred review)

‘When I read Once and Future, a bold unexpected re-telling of King Arthur as an immigrant teenage girl, I knew it had all the same thrilling elements that would make the legend...a modern favourite once again.’

(James Patterson)

'If a gender-bent retelling of King Arthur sounds as good to you as it does to me, then you’ll definitely want to add this one to your list.'

(Book Riot)

'Fun and fearless, this story romps right across the galaxy and into your heart.'

(Amie Kaufman, author of the Illuminae Files series)

‘A smart reclamation of well-worn mythology.’ 

(SciFi Now)
