Shadow Grail 4: Victories
by Mercedes Lackey & Rosemary Edghill
Tor Teen Book, 2014, $22.99, 254pp
Publication Date: April 22, 2014
This resounding conclusion to the Shadow Grail series is the last battle between the immortal Mordred, who plans to bomb the world and dominate the survivors by magic, and the reincarnations of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, Lancelot, and others of Camelot, bound by Guinevere’s final spell to be born again and again until Mordred is vanquished. But not all the knights of Camelot chose to side with Arthur; many of the reincarnates have sworn allegiance to Mordred, reveling in the injudicious exercise of power, both magical and mundane. And Merlin has been reduced to a disembodied intelligence, finding a voice – sometimes – via the internet, a voice that will not survive Mordred’s destruction of technology.

For decades, Mordred has been recruiting young magicians by rendering them orphans and arranging for them to be sent to Oakhurst, an exclusive boarding school. There, in the guise of Master Ambrosius, he tests them in many ways and on many levels, drawing to himself the ambitious ones, getting rid of those who might pose a threat. But he made one mistake. He failed to recognize his greatest enemy: Guinevere.

Spirit finally comes into her own in Victories, as she discovers the nature of her latent magic. But before Burt, Loch , Addie and Spirit can hope to stop Mordred, they have to find four of the lost Hallows of Britain: the Sword, the Shield, the Spear, and the Cauldron. Without these artifacts, they haven’t got a chance. ~~ Chris R. Paige
