Guinevere has one role to play when she arrives in Camelot. She has to protect King Arthur with her life. In Camelot, magic is banned and those being suppressed from using it might try to rise against Arthur. Guinevere is a changeling and has the capability to do magic, especially since she was trained by Merlin, but she has to be careful. If someone sees her doing magic, she could be executed and King Arthur would be exposed.

Guinevere poses as Arthur's future bride, but doesn't let the "queenly" duties distract her from her main mission: protect the king. However, things aren't always as they seem and it's a lesson Guinevere will never forget. Everyone has there secrets but who will be the one to pay when they finally come to light?

I absolutely love anything from the Arthurian time period and this book didn't disappoint. We see the characters we all love, but in different lights. Kiersten White brings a dark fantasy twist to the classic stories and characters that will always be close to my heart.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of fantasy, Arthurian legend, magic, betrayal, and secrets.
