Overview

Seventeen year old Lady Guinevere holds the crown to an ancient kingdom. Without brothers to ascend the throne, marriage to her will assure any man the right to rule.

Arthur Pendragon has won his power through battle. His legions have elected him their king and protector but he seeks to legitimize his claim to High King through marrying Guinevere.

Lancelot, a valiant knight with a broken past, is driven by his desire to protect those in need. He's joined Arthur's forces because he believes in Arthur's dream of peace for a war-torn country.

But Lancelot possesses something that Arthur can never win...Guinevere's heart.

QUEEN'S HONOR is told from the point of view of a young Guinevere as she is caught between the responsibility of her crown and the desires of her heart. This romantic legend is imbued with Celtic lore and magic, as Guinevere discovers she holds an ancient power--a power of the old ones, the Druids. But without a reliable guide to develop her power, she finds herself caught in a dangerous web of ambition and manipulation. Queen's Honor puts a fresh spin on an age-old tale of love and honor.

Betrothal is a novella (about ½ the length of a novel). Queen's Honor will be told in episodic books meant to be read in a few hours each. What's an episodic book? It's formatted like your favorite television show or a miniseries where an overall story is broken down into smaller, self-contained stories. Each novella is a story by itself, yet the continuing characters will return for new stories that tie to an overall story-line. For those who don't have time for longer books, this is a great shorter read, while those who love longer books will get the benefit of more episodes and a deepening story through multiple episodes.

A. Bunk little book with no character development. None. 76 pages of the authors French Norman ramblings about a Welsh time period in pre Saxon Wales, lol. Thankfully this was free because I feel stupid just for reading it. Had I purchased it, I might need to hang myself. Just don't. Lol.

I think this would technically be classified as a “novelette,” but I’m not sure. I loved what I’ve read from this author’s Shadowlight Saga, but I’ve had mixed results when reading different series by the same author, so I was a little hesitant. Yet the indomitable fact is that I am a sucker for Arthurian lore so I finally caved and…well, you can see the five stars, you can see I should have read it sooner! Like I said, this is a novelette, so there isn’t a very long storyline. It’s really just introducing the main players and setting the stage and making you care about the characters. This is probably the first Arthurian retelling I’ve read where I actually didn’t like Arthur. Normally, he’s my favorite character, but here he was cast as more of a neutral/potentially villainous individual and I really don’t know where I stand on him. This was written very well with suspense and even a few twists as well as the beginning sparks of a glorious romance. I adore this author, I adore both her series and I look forward to getting Quest on my Kindle!
