“Guinevere comes alive–a strong, resourceful, and compassionate woman, accessible to modern folk . . . McKenzie makes a quantum leap in defining the character of Guinevere as a real, flesh-and-blood woman. The Arthur-Guinevere-Lancelot triangle comes alive as well–believable, poignant, and bearing the seeds of tragedy.”–KATHERINE KURTZOn the night of Guinevere’s birth, a wise woman declares a prophecy of doom for the child: She will be gwenhwyfar, the white shadow, destined to betray her king, and be herself betrayed. Years pass, and Guinevere becomes a great beauty, riding free across Northern Wales on her beloved horse. She is entranced by the tales of the valorous Arthur, a courageous warrior who seems to Guinevere no mere man, but a legend. Then she finds herself betrothed to that same famous king, a hero who commands her willing devotion. Just as his knights and all his subjects, she falls under Arthur’s spell. At the side of King Arthur, Guinevere reigns strong and true. Yet she soon learns how the dark prophecy will reveal itself. She is unable to conceive. Arthur’s only true heir is Mordred, offspring of a cursed encounter with the witch Morgause. Now Guinevere must make a fateful choice: She decides to raise Mordred, teaching him to be a ruler and to honor Camelot. She will love him like a mother. Mordred will be her greatest joy–and the key to her ultimate downfall.Return to a time of legend–the days of Guinevere and Arthur and the glory that was to become Camelot

3.5 Before Love Triangles Were a Thing, We had Gwarthalot
Magical vag strikes again. Fion. Lancelot. Arthur. Mordred. Spin the wheel of fortune, and hope you pick the right man. I probably would have taken Fion right off the bat and would have never gotten a chance to meet the others because I thought he was pretty awesome. The very first guy who takes an ...

0.5 Trying hard to be a victim
This book made me angry, from Guinevere, who plays victim to everyone and is all the time trying to avoid being label a slut, to her cousin Elaine who hates on her because Guinevere is prettier than her. When it comes to Arthur I can't remember much of his character but Lancelot was Guinevere's do...

5.0 Queen of Camelot
This novel of the Arthurian legend is told strictly from Guinevere’s point of view. Being relatively new to the Arthurian legend, I greatly enjoyed the twists and turns and good and evil aspects running throughout the book. The way the novel is told is haunting and eloquent, without being pretentiou...

2.0 Queen of Camelot
Title character is too perfect, and every other woman is a cardboard cut-out.
