Looking for the King: An Inklings Novel

Looking for the King: An Inklings Novel - David C. Downing While I love the Inklings, this book was just a bit too juvenile. Set in England just as WWII is beginning, American's Laura and Tom meet and join forces on an adventure to find evidence for the real King Arthur. They attend a lecture by Charles Williams, have tea with C. S. Lewis, meet the Inklings, and at the same time stay ahead of the bad guys who are also trying to find Arthurian artifacts to give to the Nazis. A bit too pat of a plot, a bit too predictable. But the quotes from Lewis, Tolkien and others are fun. The author uses letters and books to supply the words and situations from each of the Inklings, which makes that part the most enjoyable of the book!
