I really liked the concept of this book. I've always been interested in what is happening behind the scenes. Like watching a movie and seeing an extra in the background and wondering what brought that person here. What happens with that character after this scene ends? This book has this in spades. This was a very fun read.

Disclaimer. I did receive an ARC of the book, but this is no way influenced my review of the book. If it was crap I would've let you know it was crap.

Heartwrenching, beautiful tale bringing us back to Arthur's world through Anna's eyes

The lyrical writing immediately drew me in and set me right in Arthur's family and court, but through the eyes of his oft-forgotten sister Anna. As someone who also studied Arthurian legends in college, there was both a familiarity and bright newness to Anna's Arthurian setting. Brilliant plot twists and turns, and characters that remind us, ultimately, of the sad falling of Arthur's kingdom before his very eyes

Women are traded like pawns, bred for the bloodlines, and forgotten once they'd served their purpose; but none so much as Anne. Anne who is cursed to be forgotten by Merlin's word. No matter her status as the only full blooded sister of King Arthur, she's nothing more than a servicing womb. Or is she? Down the dark and twisted court of Arthurian legend, behind the glamour of noble deeds, a bevy of women languish in regrets as they come to terms with the machinations of the men in the lives, leas ...more

A brilliant book. I was captivated by the voice of Lady Anna, finding it a delight to walk around inside her head. Much of this tale rends the heart, but it is a worthy pain, deeply felt. The magic is deliciously otherworldly. The relationships are compelling, and really sit at the heart of this story. I loved it.
