Again I have found I have greatly enjoyed Nancy McKenzie's work. Her character development and knowledge of the time period makes the story and the people seem more real. I cannot wait until the next ones in the quartet come out. In the meantime, I think i will check out her other novels of Arthurian legends...

Guinevere is still struggling to come to terms with the prophecy given at the time of her birth; a prophecy that foretold Guinevere would one day be wed to a great king and be the highest lady in the land.

She's also trying to come to terms with the young man the ancient tribe appointed as her personal guardian. As a ward of Queen Alyse and King Pellinore, she is invited to join them and her cousin, Princess Elaine, as they travel to a meeting of the
I thought I had already written my review for this book ... It has been a while since I read it now, but I still remember that it was just as wonderful as the first one. I'll have to go get it and read it again. I wonder when the third one will come out.
Guinevere travels with her aunt, uncle, and cousin to meet King Arthur, but instead the meet Morgan, Arthur's sister. When Guinevere's guardian Llyr is accused of stealing a precious dagger, Guinevere must find out who is trying to hurt her and why.
This is a fun little series. This book is #2 apparently, but it was totally readable without having read the first one. It's about King Arthur's Guinevere when she's 13 and her first meet-up with Morgan Le Fey.
I enjoyed this book. The only thing I didn't enjoy was how the story didn't end. I'll have to wait for book three to find out how will end. Of course we all know the legends so I could probably just guess.
The second book in the Queen's Quartet, Gwen must save her friend Llyr from death, while exposing the true thief. But that could be hard when the thief might be the High King's own sister, Morgan.
It's overall very good. There are some references to mature content and pagan gods.
Not as engaging as the first book. still a good read.
Again, I have a thing about Guinevere. Very much liked it.

“She felt her future close upon her but unseen, like the sea behind the blowing veil of snow... She would follow Llyr's advice and face it a little every day...Day by day, step by step life would go forward. Eventually, the veil would lift, the cold would yield to the sun's warmth, and the world would be reborn. This dark time would pass.” 5 likes
