While searching through ancient artifacts in an old museum, eighteen-year-old Katarina Cole is lured to the picture of a beautiful knight, whose malicious eyes and taunting joker's grin leave her mystified and infatuated. Doomed to an inquisitive nature, she soon learns that this face belongs to King Arthur's vanished cousin, Brendelon Beaumont. Told of the mysterious curse that incarcerated him into the portrait, pragmatic Katarina struggles to believe it, but as the story continues to haunt her, something draws her back.
Moved by the power of a stone bracelet from the past, she suddenly finds herself to be in the very presence of this arrogant and daunting prince-who is anything but a typical fairytale knight in shining armor. But the curse that left him confined for centuries is far from over when a vortex unexpectedly lands them back in time to a mystical realm.
Enchanted by the camaraderie of Arthur and his knights, Katarina quickly forgets this is not her home, but changing the past changes the future and when the formidable curse begins to unravel, revealing a dark secret that results in deadly consequences, they soon realize the return of this unscrupulous knight was no accident...
Faced with challenges from giant trolls, deceiving fairies, magical bonds, and the wrath of a powerful sorceress, two unlikely companions must learn to put aside their differences and tormenting pasts to find the spell's undoing and the key to send Katarina home before the legend of King Arthur is changed forever. In the ultimate battle of good verse evil and discovering there is more beyond the crimson, this unexpected twist on the Arthurian tale will leave readers absolutely spellbound.

One weeps for the beautiful and hapless trees cut down to print this drivel. There are so many good books available about the Arthurian legend , do yourself a favor and avoid reading this one. A complete waste of time and brain cellsWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

If you think you've heard all there is to the Arthurian legends, you need to read this book. Interesting twist with strong, new characters that leave the reader wanting more. The protagonist/ anti-hero, Brendelon Beaumont is ambiguously complex and frustrating,yet all together impossible to not fall in love with. Fun, exciting , and highly recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
