This sequel to Daughter of Destiny is amazing! I received a free copy of this book with the option of leaving an honest review. Continuing where the first book left off, Camelot's Queen is a well-written Arthurian fantasy with political intrigue, war, an epic quest, religious intrusion, and romance. As with the first book, the tale is told from Guinevere's point of view; a fact that is strongly reflected in her role as a queen and Arthur's advisor, her belief system, in her innermost thoughts and feelings, and in her actions. Evelina does an amazing job of narrating Guinevere's innermost thoughts and feelings, which reflect the fact that Guinevere is a priestess of Avalon and not Christian. An excellent example of this is Guinevere's "affair" with Lancelot. From Guinevere's perspective, marriage is an equal partnership in which men and women play different but equal roles. Since Arthur is able to practice bigamy under his religious laws, why shouldn't she? However, she is intelligent enough to understand that the society she lives in will not agree with her point of view, so she keeps it secret. I found the political intrigue and religious intrusion fascinating. In the beginning of the tale, church and state have a somewhat steady peace; however, as we are drawn deeper into the tale, we see the degree of separation between the two dwindle and watch as Camelot's political system and interpersonal relationships are affected. Evelina weaves an intricate and fascinating narrative that makes Guinevere's role in Camelot as important as Arthur's and sheds new light on a tale that is traditionally male-centric; making Camelot's Queen a fantastic choice for Arthurian fantasy fans who are looking for a non-traditional twist on a classic story, or for romantic fantasy fans who enjoy plots centered around strong female protagonists.
