Kemp continues the extraordinary story of King Arthur's estranged daughter, Lin. Adjusting from her life as an orphaned and abused slave to that of Arthur, the Pendragon's daughter does not prove an easy task for young Lin. She struggles to adapt and find her place within the sumptuous palace walls of Camelot. Her mother, Queen Gwenhwyfar, expects Lin to conform to the life of royalty and the duties of a princess, including an arranged marriage. But having survived the cruelty of life as Modred's slave, Lin wants more than a tedious life of weaving and gossip within the world of women. Rejected by her cold, unloving mother, Lin seeks the role of training to become a soldier. Her fighting spirit meets resistance at every turn. Can Lin prevail as a recruit in the Pendragon's army? Or will her past return to haunt her?

Read an Excerpt

Cai grinned. "It's true, lass. Whatever your idealistic visions might be," he said, winking at Dafydd. "Men sit in these chairs at Beltane and Samhain. Oft times it's a marvel that anything gets settled here. But your da has a way."

"What is his magic?"

"Magic? My brother is as human as the rest."

"But any man who can envision this"--my hand caressed the Table--"and make it a reality..."

"Exactly, lass. I never said he was not special. Any other questions?"

I had many, but did not wish to detain him from his work any longer.

I shook my head and thanked him.

"I am always at your service, lass. And Dafydd's. Never hesitate to ask."

We regarded each other for what seemed a long time. Then Cai's gaze shifted to the Round Table behind me.

"Seat of Peril," Cai said with a chuckle. "I dare say, you are a bard in the rough, lad."

Dafydd's cheeks reddened, as Cai patted his shoulder.

Still grinning, the Seneschal left, reminding us to close the shutter.

I turned to the Round Table again, extending my arms as though to embrace my father's dream.

A wicked thought possessed me. I stroked the edge of the Table where the name would be.
