Rate this:
The bestselling author of the Valdemar novels pens a classic tale about King Arthur's legendary queen.

Gwenhwyfar moves in a world where gods walk among their pagan worshipers, where nebulous visions warn of future perils, and where there are two paths for a woman: the path of the Blessing or the rarer path of the Warrior. Gwenhwyfar chooses the latter, giving up the power that she is born into. Yet the daughter of a King is never truly free to follow her own calling. Acting as the "son" her father never had, when called upon to serve another purpose by the Ladies of the Well, she bows to circumstances to become Arthur's queen-only to find herself facing temptation and treachery, intrigue, love and redemption.

Very different than any of her other fantasy works, more along the lines of Mists of Avalon. I actually liked it better than that rather well known book. It was a beautiful historically accurate fiction, with less of the repetitavness of Mists of Avalon and more of the details about everyday life in that time. If you liked Mists of Avalon try this, it is different, unique, and yet similar.

not bad, but not one of her better works by a long shot. started off well but went downhill, especially towards the end.
