King Arthur's Sister in Washington's Court - Kim Iverson Headlee (book review)

I got this book for an honest review

Story
Morgan le Fay, 6th-century Queen of Gore and the only major character not killed off by Mark Twain in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, vows revenge upon the Yankee Hank Morgan. She casts a spell to take her to 1879 Connecticut so she may waylay Sir Boss before he can travel back in time to destroy her world. But the spell misses by 300 miles and 200 years, landing her in the Washington, D.C., of 2079, replete with flying limousines, hovering office buildings, virtual-reality television, and sundry other technological marvels.


Whatever is a time-displaced queen of magic and minions to do? Why, rebuild her kingdom, of course—two kingdoms, in fact: as Campaign Boss for the reelection of American President Malory Beckham Hinton, and as owner of the London Knights world-champion baseball franchise.


Written as though by the old master himself, King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court by Mark Twain as channeled by Kim Iverson Headlee offers laughs, love, and a candid look at American society, popular culture, politics, baseball...and the human heart.
 

My Thoughts
This book is a really great book. It is a continuing story from Mark Twains story about the famous king. I dont really know what to say about the book more than that I really enjoyed reading it. The story is well written and well presented. IT is easy to follow and from time to time very funny.

I like the style the book is written in, and how it is presented. I couldnt put the book down when I was reading it so my reading before bed turned out to be a whole nighter. Even if this book is different from other books I have read latley, it is still a really good read and the mix of things and the mix of feelings it gives me is awesome.

I can really recommend this book to others.
