Lancelot and the King
A love long-held, the love of a knight for his king, a love which must be denied.
Lancelot is banished from Camelot in disgrace, not only has he lost his honour and country, but too late he realises he has lost his love.
When duty calls him to return, Lancelot doesn’t think twice and once more puts on his armour. If his king needs him and he is called to the sword, he knows...more

Some reviewers (especially on Am.) focus on its gay content hurling insults at the author for the gay twist she chooses to give to the Arthurian myth. While everyone is certainly entitled to his own opinions a simple reading of the editorial blurb would have prevented their delicate heterosexuality from being tarnished by this "sinful" work.
Let us concentrate on this work's REAL assets and issues:

I'm a huge Arthurian legend fan, so reading this was a pleasure. The fey/magical elements were pretty on form, and I loved the fact that it was told, 1st person, from Lancelot's POV.
The take on Arthur and Lancelot's relationship was brilliant, and again, sta ...more
And that's ignoring it does actually have no "decent" female characters. Like, I could be okay with how things were in some instances but the way things turned out at the start, in the middle and... well, at the end, there is no nice female character - there are only a few that are evil and wrong and bad - that ...more
This is a different take on Arthur and the knights of the round table. Poor Lancelot has a lot to figure out when it comes to his emotions and the purple he is closest to. He broke his spirit when Arthur had to banish him and he hurt even more for the pain that Arthur was going through. He was decided by someone he thought he loved, but he hurt the one that he loved the most when his secrecy was reveale ...more

Written in the voice of Lancelot did Lac, set after his punishment for betraying King Arthur, the fey seek to capture the kingdom. The tale focuses on the removal of these influences and the relationship between the king and his champion. Well developed with great detail, this reader thoroughly enjoyed a different take on the mythology of Camelot.

A very different take on Lancelot and Arthur, and definitely in the paranormal vein. The author did a good job with the world building, and the book was filled with a lot of action and drama. It was a fast paced book, and only book one in a long series. Most of the first book sees Lancelot in a m/f relationship and that did catch me off guard. I would say it’s important for the world building and in setting up Arthur and Lancelot’s relationship. If you like historical no ...more

I really enjoy reading book about knights and gladiators, especially in Lancelot and King Arthur time. There was a lot of suffering and deceit going on. A power struggle among the Feys to gain control over Camelot. The threats and damage they had to face to save each other. I'm really going to enjoy reading the other books in this series, it's going to be a exciting journey.
This is one fantastic read. Lancelot is injured and banished from Camelot. He is strong and honorable with a touch of humanity causing a lapse in judgement. He is on a journey to find himself and in the process save his King and Camelot. This is so exciting and at times heartbreaking. Do yourself a favor and read this book. I'm getting book two now!
Wow what a story! Ms. Huffington took Camelot and rewrote its history and what a history of is! Poignant, heartbreaking yet heartwarming is Arthur's love for Camelot, Guinevere and Lancelot. Definitely a version that will wring tears, teeth gnashing and euphoria from the reader....so glad she has written a whole series!
I love anything to do with Arthurian legand! I really loved this story! Arthur and Lancelot were just to amazing! Their love is beautiful to read. I also really enjoyed Else and Geraint. They were amazing and I hope they are happy. Well worth the read! ❤️
Upfront: I've never read any of the King Arthur legends. I watched that one Sean Connery and Richard Gere movie and found it trite. I made a couple of half-hearted attempts to watch "Merlin" and lost interest. Not that these aren't my kind of stories. I love a good fantasy tale. But King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table just never called to me, for whatever reason. The only reason I got this book was because of all the one-star reviews gay-bashing it. ...more
