Max and Olivia have discovered that Morgana Le Fay is plotting to use a mysterious 'Swordspell' against King Arthur at the Festival of Chivalry.
They don't know what the spell is or how to stop it, and Olivia also has her training for the Squire's Challenge to worry about. But things are made even worse when Merlin is called away unexpectedly, leaving Max and Olivia without his magical protection.

With the help of Sir Lancelot, Sir Bertram and Adolphus the dragon, Ferocious the rat and Vortigern the duck, the Pendragon children must quickly uncover Morgana's evil plan, before it is too late for Arthur and Camelot.

My Review
So this is it, the last one in the series and the toughest challenge yet. Morgana is determined to get rid of Arthur once and for all so Max, Olivia, Merlin and friends must try to find a way to stop her, forever.
With no idea what the Swordspell involves it's hard to make a plan, but once again they fall into mischief and end up in the middle of the plot. 
This book wraps the series up nicely, I didn't think it was quite as exciting as the one before it (Icespell) but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. There were some interesting twists and turns and it was great to see Snotty get what's coming to him!
These really are excellent, fun little books that I'm sure kids will love and it's a great way to introduce them to the world and time of King Arthur. 
I'm actually a bit sorry to see the series end.

My Rating
