Legend by Kylie C. Stewart #review

Life as she knew it had ended…

When Alexandria York fatefully met the Duke of Avalon in the woods she never imagined she’d be working for him. A rising star of the art scene in London, Alexandria agrees to commission a piece for the infamous noble. His intentions quickly become confusing as chemistry grows between the two.
As she dreams of the man she can’t have, the one she can lures her deeper into his lair. Will the man she once loved be her Knight in shining armor and slay the Dragon? Or will the Dragon consume her before it’s too late?

In this life, his heart was the stone and her love was the sword…

The Duke of Avalon has lived a long and lonely life. He has chased his love through the centuries and every time she has jilted him, but not this time. Tormented by inner demons, Avalon seeks to keep his secret safe while vowing to win Alexandria York. When his former charge, Lancer Rivers comes back into both their lives, he finds he more than one challenger for her hand. Can he protect Alexandria not only from the man after her very life, but also himself?

Set in stone is the first book in a very promising fantasy series. It tells the story of Alexandria, the lover of King Arthur and everything she goes through when the love of her past life comes back to her. Romantic, right? Too bad the girl doesn’t remember anything at all and has the maturity of a teen when it comes to relationships. I really wanted to like the heroine but she was just too confused with her suitors and it kills me from the inside to see out handsome king behind scared of losing his lady once again. Aside from the silly attitude Alexandria had when it came to her love life, she was a likable character. After all, who doesn’t love an artist? It is quite funny but appropriate that an artist is the past lover of King Arthur because magic lives in art. 
I had a bittersweet feeling when it came to Arthur/Avalon. I really wanted to shout at him or slap him in the face for letting his fears run his life. He was quite a brute with Alexandria every occasionally because he feared he will lose her like he did in the past. Nevertheless, there was no denying their intense connection. Call me a romantic but, there were moments where I just couldn’t help but feel that those two were meant to be. The only problem is that our girl didn’t see it quite as clearly as I did. I was 2 seconds away from getting the book to open her eyes for her. I mean, give the poor king a break. On the other hand, I must admit the love rival was quite enticing himself. I mean, who doesn’t love a bad guy? The problem is that he was bad to the core and there was no chance of redemption.
I truly love this story because it let me see a whole new side of the King Arthur we have been sold in movies, books, tv series, and cartoons. He was not the jerk teenager that we saw at Merlin or the smart weakling with a good heart that we were introduced to in the Sword in The Stone. Duke of Avalon / King Arthur was a very enigmatic, seductive and mysterious character that made you want to keep reading his story. Despite his mistakes and difficult attitude, it was impossible not to sympathize with him. I may love twists of fairy tales and popular stories but this one was unlike any other I have heard before and I will definitely be reading it again very soon.
