Content descriptions

General Note: "JIMMY Patterson Books."
Summary, etc.: "In this epic sequel to Once & Future, Ari and her Rainbow knights must pull off a Holy Grail heist thousands of years in the past -- without destroying their own destinies. Ari Helix may have won her battle against the tyrannical Mercer corporation, but the larger war has just begun. Ari and her cursed wizard Merlin must travel back in time to the unenlightened Middle Ages and steal the King Arthur's Grail -- the very definition of impossible. It's imperative that the time travelers not skew the timeline and alter the course of history. Coming face to face with the original Arthurian legend could produce a ripple effect that changes everything. Somehow Merlin forgot that the past can be even more dangerous than the future . . ." ~ Amazon.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 February #2
    The delightful escapades of Ari and her queer cadre of "knights" continue in this satisfyingly irreverent follow-up to Once & Future (2019). Those rusty on the first book's events, especially the role of the Mercer Corporation, will want to refresh before jumping into Capetta and McCarthy's madcap reworking of the Arthurian quest for the Holy Grail. Through a powerful bit of magic, Ari and company go back to the original Arthur's time, in hope of using the Grail to break the cycle of Arthur's reincarnation, as well as Merlin's cursed backward aging. As with any good time travel story, tension over messing up the future by disrupting the past thrums, not to mention the dangers of narrow-minded medieval society. It is a surprisingly eye-opening experience, and not just for the historical residents. Gwen, pregnant with Kay's baby, takes her prescribed place as Arthur's wife, turning Ari into this story's Lancelot. Meanwhile, Merlin's quest to discover his origins (and contend with his crotchety former self) is heart-wrenching and hilarious by turns. Empowering and boisterously modern. Grades 8-12.
