Different perspective of Camelot as told by of Gwynhwyfar. It still is the same basic story of the love triangle and the scheming and treacherous plots of Arthur's son and of some of the other rulers who wanted to seize power and become Emperor. Author paints a vivid picture of sixth century Britain's peoples and country sides. The battle scenes put you into the fighting and its' aftermaths. The included map helped the reader visualized the journey that the characters took in order to go to Less Britain. An exceptional read for those who love everything about Camelot and for those who want to enjoy an excellent book that takes one into fantasy and past history. I especially liked how she interrelated the end of Camlann (Camelot) with all the surviving characters.

I love all the stories and legends about King Arthuur and this time in Britain's history. Although this novel tries to give a very realistic account it is so slow moving that this did not eve. Draw me in. The characters were either flat or unbelievable. The storyline somewhat confusing and unbelievable. The dynamics of the main characters were so unpleasant but not in a way that caused suspense and interest. I wanted to put it down after just a few chapters but forces myself to read it because i hate not fi using books and figured it had to get better. It didn't! My recommendation is - DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY OR YOUR TIME WITH THIS BOOK!

Inevitable, depressing ending of Arthur's story. Still an excellent retelling of the story

This novel is written from the perspective of Gwynhyfyr, but that's about all that's potentially "new." Readable, but not memorable.

Not too thrilled with this book. Too many strange names for characters we should know from Camelot and not much indication about where the story is going.
