I have read the first two, but this one was right down with the darkness. The Shadow Grail is about Merlin and Mordred's battle. Which hasn't ended yet, their knights and warriors are reborn and waiting for the battle where either good or evil will win. Spirit and her friends must figure out what Mordred and his followers want. I enjoy Mercedes writing and characters. They are always bright and beautiful with attitude and this book doesn't let me down at all. There are some sad times, some crazy times, and a bit of romance in the air. I will be hungryly waiting for book 4 to be written and released.
