The Guinevere Deception (Camelot Rising Trilogy)

We rated this book:


Guinevere is to marry Arthur, the new king of Camelot. Magic is forbidden within its borders as the king tries to build a new city better than any before. However, Guinevere is not whom she says she is, but a changeling sent by Merlin to help and protect Arthur. Her magic is for small, little things, just enough to help in certain situations, but she must make sure no one sees. And there’s a force, a dark force that refuses to let go. When that force threatens the troops and Arthur himself, Guinevere uses her magic to help and just hopes that she can keep her secret from destroying everything that Arthur has built.

Told from Guinevere’s point of view, this follows the tale of Arthur after he has pulled Excalibur from the stone and been named king, offering a new vivid depiction of a long-ago legend, with witty dialogue and beloved characters. True to White’s previous re-imaginings, like The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein and The Conqueror’s Saga about Vlad the Impaler, this one is dark and twisted, altering characters and events to fit a new, creative tale. This does for the Arthurian legend what Twilight did for vampires and werewolves.
