    A really fast read, with an enjoyable story line and interesting characters you already love. It is fascinating how Engler combines a younger version of Arthur, history and magical myths into a story that will reach readers of all ages. I do realize that this book is written to captivate younger readers, the character development and in depth details that I’m use to would bore the younger audience… That being said, I did find that it had enough framework to keep me interested.This copy was given to me by Goodreads First Reads and Linda Engler in exchange for an honest review.

    This book was great! I understand it was probably written for someone in their early teens, but I really enjoy stories about Merlin. I am never able to find enough about his childhood.The writing and descriptions were great. It dragged me in from the first page. Even though this was a novela it was stil wonderfulul. I would definitely recommendnd this book.

    A good, reasonably well-written fantasy using familiar mythical? characters from another angle. There are battles to be fought and it is interesting to see how Arthur fares.Great artwork gives yet another dimension.Worth a look.

    I won this novel from the Goodreads Giveaway.  At first I found the pacing a bit slow. I was hard to feel connected to the characters. Once Arthur was introduced the pacing picked up. I am not sure if this is the writing style or my lack of background knowledge on pure-druid England.  In The Forgotten Isle, Arthur is transported back in time to help out. Bronze age  people under attack by demons from the underworld. L.E Engler's writing style is simplistic and easy to understand which is a plus for striving readers. Although I agree with another review that the story would be greatly enhanced by more character development, I think the character development is perfect for middle school readers, especially those who might be studying Arthurian legends in Social Studies or Reading class. This book would also be of great interest to striving readers who find it difficult to stay focused on books that focus more on character development and background information. The Forgotten Isle , once Arthur enters the scene , gets straight to the action. This is key to keeping young readers' focus. I would recommend The Forgotten Isle to middle school students and ages 9-11.Overall it was a quick and enjoyable read that I will pass on to some of my students. I am interested in reading L.E Engler's  book Out of Ewr.

    ***I received this book from the Goodreads First Reads program***Let's start with the positives and work our way from there. Ms. Engler -- thank you for taking part in the first reads program to try and get your work out into the public to garnish reviews. I admire anyone who can go through the process of writing a book, managing to get it published, and then releasing it to the critical public. For that, I admire and thank you.In my first library science class they taught us "every book its reader", and with that in mind, I'll say that I was not the reader for this book. There are glaring spelling and grammatical errors, an excessive use of exclamation points, and sentence structure that makes me want to cry. I entered the giveaway because of my love of history and a fascination with Ireland, but unfortunately this book fell absolutely flat for me and I didn't make it past the first 40 pages. Not every book is meant for every reader, but thank you for the opportunity!

    I was so lucky to win this in a goodreads first reads giveaway! The Forgotten Isle is a middle grade book about King Arthur before he was king, when he was just a boy of twelve. He is swept back in time to try to help the people of Finias from the Bronze Age defeat the evil Kulluck creatures. I appreciated how two boys, Arthur and Taran, from two completely different time periods, worked together and became friends. Reading about their friendship was wonderful. I loved this book and read it quickly! A great book full of action appropriate for this age-group, The Forgotten Isle will be a book you will not soon forget! Five stars!

    I won this book from a giveaway on Goodreads.I just got this book in the mail earlier today and I finished it in about two and a half hours. This book was intended for a younger audience. The plot was interesting but, when I read this book I felt the story was very rushed. The story did not explain things further than what it should have done and a few loopholes that didn’t make sense.I did not care for the ending. I mean, when Dis didn’t take back minions at the bronze circle then a five days later takes them back in the middle of the battle to end the story was lame!

    I thought The Forgotten Isle was a very entertaining book. Prince Arthur is transported back through time by Earth Mother, Danu, to help save King Tuan’s city from the evil Kullucks. Arthur has many futuristic ideas to help, which only slow the Kullucks. Arthur never really knows if his ideas help as he is pulled back to his own time at the worst possible moment. The Kullucks are taken back to the UnderWorld at the end.
