"The Witch, the Sword, and the Cursed Knights is a joy to read - a delightful, heartfelt adventure with characters you'll root for. It has all the intrigue of the original source material, but it's also packed full of imagination. Perfect for any child who's ever wished for magic!"--Carli Sorosiak, author of I, Cosmo
"This is a delightful book that cleverly combines reimagined elements of Arthurian legend and fairytales in a fresh adventure full of magic lessons, dangerous quests, lost lands, and true friends - with a sugar-dusting of humor sprinkled throughout. I enjoyed every page!"--Jennifer Adam, author of The Last Windwitch
"Rogers deftly weaves Arthurian legend around universal concerns of the target audience, and the ending is both satisfying and sequel-ready."--Publishers Weekly
"From page one, Rogers' debut delivers.'s the vibrant bond between the two leads that gives the story its abounding heart. Middle-grade fantasy at its most epic."--Booklist, starred review
"Rogers's creativity in constructing the multiple-realm setting is outstanding, including minute details that keep its audience riveted. A kinetic and novel fairy tale with themes of friendship and perseverance that will engage fans of Kelly Barnhill's The Girl Who Drank the Moon."
--School Library Journal, starred review
"Debut author Rogers combines elements from beloved fairy tales and legends, blending recognizable patterns with humor and excitement to produce something charming and new."--Horn Book

An engaging and intelligent fantasy: up there with the best of them."--Kirkus, starred review
