The Seven Swords by Nils Johnson Shelton

Across both worlds are seven legendary blades. Some have been uncovered, Some forgotten, Others secreted away.
Very soon all must be united.
Spending the summer fighting dragons, rescuing wizards, and leaping through portals into the Otherworld was only the beginning for Artie and Kay Kingfisher. The two worlds remain divided, Merlin is missing, and worst of all, Qwon Onakea, their kidnapped friend, may be lost to the Otherworld forever. It seems the only way to save both worlds—and to save his friends—is for Artie to claim his throne as King Arthur reborn.
To do this, Artie must gather his knights so they can venture forth and recover each of the Seven Swords. Finding them all is Artie's only hope for victory.
But all the video games in the world haven't prepared Artie for the battles to come against giants, dragons, ogres, and sorcerers. Nor is he ready for the unexpected threat of the Peace Sword, a mysterious weapon used by the treacherous Mordred to kill the original King Arthur more than a thousand years ago. . . .

The Seven Swords is a must-read book. It is a well-written, funny, exciting, scary and adventuresome story. Artie Kingfisher spends his summer rescuing wizards and leaping through portals into the Otherworld. His current mission is to recover the mythical Seven Swords to defeat the evil Lordess Morgaine. There is danger at every turn and the people that Artie thinks he can trust may turn on him at any moment. I could not wait to turn each page and see what would happen next. I highly recommend this book for girls and boys ages 8-12. I recommend that you read the first book in this series if you want The Seven Swords to make the most sense.

Thank you to Harpers Collins Children's Books for this amazing book, I loved it.

This book is on shelves now! 

Happy reading!
