I’ve been chased my whole life As a fugitive refugee in the territory controlled by the tyrannical Mercer corporation I’ve always had to hide who I am Until I found ExcaliburNow I’m done hidingMy name is Ari Helix I have a. He apologized for breaking his promise not to use magic as he took down the guard with the needle Then another apology sorry uite sorry as he zinged the one holding HexWhy are you being so nice to them right now Hex askedI m British Merlin cried It s times like this when I really wish I d never started leaving star ratings for books because it just doesn t adeuately express all that I want to say There were some moments of comedy gold in this book and so much wonderful diversity and ueerness but overall I think I have to admit that this book was written in a particular style that has never been to my tastes I didn t realize this before reading but Once Future is that strange blend of sci fi and uirky comedy that some people seem to love think The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy but way diverse and modern I ve never really got it With important themes like illegal refugees and corporatocracy I had wrongly assumed this book would feel drama and politics based The plot follows Ari who is the 42nd reincarnation of King Arthur 42nd Definite Douglas Adams vibe We learn from Merlin who is aging backwards that the Arthurs are doomed to repeat the same cycle of Arthur obtaining Excalibur Arthur falling into a doomed romance with Guinevere and Morgana finally killing him Ari is a bit different though and not just because she s a girlThis reincarnation of Arthur takes place centuries into the future when Old Earth has been left behind and humanity is spread over three galaxies all controlled by the evil corporate giant Mercer In this future gender and sexuality are just not a big deal The characters are boys girls fluids gay bi pan and literally no one gives a shit It s freaking awesome What s less awesome is the reach of Mercer who has placed a barricade on the entire Arab settled planet of Ketchan Ari s home planet Making Ari an illegal refugeeIt s actually very light and silly in parts but not in the straight up comedy way of say The Gentleman s Guide to Vice and Virtue To me it reads like it doesn t know what it wants to be The book zips between a brewing revolution revisiting tragedies of the past and Merlin getting drunk and singing Katy Perry to himself as he lets off fireworks It s funny sure but it doesn t seem to fit together with the rest of the bookThe pacing too is all over the place At certain points we are bombarded by an almost constant stream of action which made it even noticeable and comparatively dull when the pace slowed I saw another person note that they thought the romance between Ari and Gwen felt forced which I didn t but I did think it felt rushed They had so much chemistry in the early chapters that I was disappointed that the authors had them jumping into a political marriage consummated off page immediately I swear ueer girls never get sexy build up and that was pretty much that It is also strange that what is set up as Ari s main motivation is or less resolved just over halfway through the bookI think I would have preferred Once Future if it had picked one or the other I would have been so ready for an action packed sci fi retelling of King Arthur that was about critiuing capitalism and defeating the all powerful Mercer corporation I also would have very much enjoyed a light fluffy romcom about drunk wizards and lots of ueer romance Having the two all mixed up together gave me a huge emotional disconnect Still if sci fi comedy is something that sounds appealing you should definitely read this While I did have some general complaints a lot came down to personal taste If it doesn t sound like it floats your boat I highly recommend Capetta s The Brilliant Death insteadBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube
