What do Excalibur, Enoch, and Lord of the Rings all have in common? The answer is "Heart" by Simon Morden. The plot starts out deceptively simple. An almost cheesy prologue eventually turns into a rather straightforward detective story and almost a third of the way through the story the reader is rather perplexed as to what the author is driving at. I didn't expect this novel to be a King Arthur story—it really surprised me when I found it that it was. Surprised and skeptical. But this is one of the best retellings I have ever read, and one of the most moving and riveting novels I've laid my hands on. And as the final icing on the cake it's been rereleased under Creative Commons and the ebook is available for free on the author's website. There was nothing I didn't like about this book. Go read it.
