Not as magical as McKenzie's other works, but certainly worth reading to sort of round out following the characters from the Queen of Camelot series.

The King Arthur story told from Guinevere perspective. It is a good read.

One of my favorite books and a beautiful retelling of the King Arthur story.

At her birth, an old wise woman prophesied that Guinevere would someday be the highest woman in the land, wed to a mighty king. Guinevere doesn't believe it -- as the orphaned ward of King Pellinore and Queen Alyse of Gwynedd, Guinevere has no dowry, no prospects, and no interest in becoming a great lady. She'd rather be off riding her horse. But many others do believe in the prophecy, including the part that nobody has ever told Guinevere: that she will betray the great king, as well. Guinevere must come to terms with her destiny and decide how much the prophecy will shape her future. When she uncovers a dangerous plot that only she can foil, she may be taking her first steps toward her unknown future.

I thought this was an interesting approach to Arthurian legend, looking at the young Guinevere before she met Arthur. I found it a decent story -- not fantastic, but worth the time it took to read it. I didn't realize that it was the start of a series, going into it, so I found the ending a little off-putting. It's not a cliffhanger, but it's obvious that there's more to the story. I'd recommend this only to readers who can't get enough of Arthurian retellings.
