Fantasy Romance, Historical fiction, Historical Novel with Romantic Elements
History remembers Guinevere's sin, but it was Arthur who transgressed first.
Forced into a marriage she neither anticipated nor desired, Guinevere finds herself High Queen, ruling and fighting alongside Arthur as they try to subdue the Saxons, Irish and Picts who threaten Britain from every direction. Though her heart still longs for her lost love, Guinevere slowly grows to care for her husband as they join together to defeat their enemies.
Meanwhile, within the walls of Camelot their closest allies plot against them. One schemes to make Guinevere his own, another seeks revenge for past transgressions, while a third fixes her eyes on the throne. When the unthinkable happens and Guinevere is feared dead, Arthur installs a new woman in her place, one who will poison his affections toward her, threatening Guinevere's fragile sanity and eventually driving her into the arms of her champion.
Amid this tension a new challenge arises for the king and queen of Camelot: finding the Holy Grail, a sacred relic that promises lasting unity. But peace, as they will soon learn, can be just as dangerous as war. As the court begins to turn on itself, it becomes clear that the quest that was to be Arthur's lasting legacy may end in the burning fires of condemnation.
This highly anticipated sequel to Daughter of Destiny proves there is much more to Guinevere's story than her marriage and an affair. See the legend you think you know through her eyes and live the adventure of Camelot's golden days yourself – but be prepared to suffer its downfall as well.

Usually, everyone hates a sequel. It is never as good as the first one. That is not the case here. Guinevere is now married to King Arthur, and while it is not the marriage she wanted, there is very little she can do about it. They have come to respect each other to do what is best for the kingdom and find the Holy Grail. Unfortunately, there is evil at every turn. Just when you thought you knew who to trust, friends quickly become enemies.
CAMELOT'S QUEEN is extremely well written, and I could not put it down. I was captivated with every page, twists, and turns. In other stories, Guinevere is the adulterous wife, but that is not the case in this story. In this story, she is the scapegoat.
I loved every second of this story. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I hope it continues.
