The Winter Princeby Elizabeth E. Wein
Medraut is the eldest son of Artos, high king of Britain and, but for an accident of birth, would be heir to the throne. Instead, his younger half-brother, Lleu, fragile and inexperienced, is chosen. Medraut cannot bear to be commanded and contradicted by this weakling brother who he feels has usurped both his birthright and his father's favor. Torn and bitter, he joins Morgause, the high king's treacherous sister, in a plot to force Artos to forfeit his power and kingdom in exchange for Lleu's life. But this plot soon proves to be much more-a battlefield on which Medraut is forced to decide, for good or evil, where his own allegiance truly lies.

I have loved this book ever since I first read it in 1997. I had been unable to find a copy of it anywhere other than my public library, and have had it checked out constantly. This is an intriguing twist on the perhaps overused Arthurian legend, and I can't wait to read Wein's next book.
I love the story and the people in this book! I thought that it was all great! I have read the book many of times and every time i reas it, it was like a new book I had never readed before. I think this book is great!!
I read this book in about two days, would have been one if I hadn't made my mother take the book away so I didn't finish it so fast. Very entertainging and enjoyful. I would recommend it to any reader.
