Críticas

"Written in a credible pastiche of Twain's style, ... Headlee evokes the spirit of the original book [in this] solidly entertaining tale." -Publishers Weekly "Full of wit, woman power and clever critiques of the political scene as well as the 'good old boy' network of professional sports, King Arthur's Sister in Washington's Court by Kim Iverson Headlee... crosses all types of preconceived ideas about style, substance, time and place." -Readers' Favorite "If you're a fan of historical romance, sarcastic humor, slapstick, and just generally great reading, pick up a copy of King Arthur's Sister in Washington's Court today!" -Mama Reads, Hazel Sleeps blog King Arthur's Sister in Washington's Court "is laugh out loud funny, but at the same time some of the topics that Kim explores really made me think about how little things have actually changed between Morgan's world and our own." -Arthurian author Mary Anne Yarde "Wow! Just wow! What Kim Headlee has done here is just amazing. The story begins with Mark Twain talking from beyond his grave. He wants a sequel to A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court and he's chosen Kim to deliver it. And man does she!" -Author Liza O'Connor "Packed with politics, pop culture, sports, business, time travel, magic, deceit, humor and love, this story will keep you enthralled right up to the end." -Romance Junkies "[King Arthur's Sister in Washington's Court] is irresistible, passionate, and intriguing. Definitely check out this amazing... Arthurian Romance!" -Arthurian Romances blog

Descripción del producto

Are you sick of US politics? Afraid of what will become of America because your chosen candidate didn’t prevail? Do you believe the world is doomed now that King Donald has claimed the Oval Office throne?

Refresh your spirit and allay your fears by laughing along with what Mark Twain might have written about today’s political falderal.

“Entertaining.” –Publishers Weekly.

WINNER 2016 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal for Science Fiction & Fantasy.

Morgan le Fay, sixth-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, DC, 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.
