Avalon Revamped is that book for O. M. Grey. It deals with some horrific truths and should be read by every person on the planet. It is a great adventure, with serious underpinnings that elevate it into a higher realm of genre literature." C. L. Stegall, author of The Blood of Others...

Avalon Revamped Reviews
I really don't know how to feel about this book. There was a LOT going on. All of Arthur's charm and whit from the first book, the narration that made Avalon Revisited so... unique and unexpected, were completely invalidated in Avalon Revamped. The plot: Too busy, too many narrators, too much going on. The characters: None of them were ever fully developed because so many were playing key roles. Arthur was obnoxious, Avalon was one-dimensional, and Constance was literally too many people at once. The supporting cast was just as bloated and I found it incredibly difficult to keep ladies whose name start with "C" straight, not to mention the men who abused her/them. And that Polly character. Dude. That's mental illness and it aint' right. There were complaints that Avalon Revisited was raunchy and the sex was too much, the scenes too frequent, the feelings too detached. Well... anyone who had problems with the first book will NOT be able to handle the second one. At all. There is not one good, healthy, positive, loving, or even mutually respectful sexual encounter in this book. But with all of that said... I still finished Avalon Revamped and I still think there was a lot of originality here. The Author took big risks with this story, as many if not more than she did with the first. There aren't many paranormal historical steampunk romances narrated by the hero, and I can't think of any that have a glorified Dandy leading the charge. But these did. Read this one only if you're prepared to lose all respect for Arthur and gain a small amount for Avalon. But if you're a victim of sexual abuse, tread carefully. This book opens with a warning for a reason.
I read the book - the Constance story was a good one. The change in Arthur since the first book was disappointing. And the journey into the psyche of abused women and their abusers was a learning experience however a little much for me. Gruesome.
