Overview

Grail Prince by Nancy McKenzie

The wheel is turning and the world will change. . . . And a son of Lancelot, with a bloody sword and a righteous heart, shall renew the Light in Britain before the descent of savage dark. . . .

So spoke the Lady of the Lake. Now her grim prophecy is coming true. King Arthur lies dead, struck down along with Mordred, his son and heir, and the greatest knights of Camelot. Of that peerless company, only Lancelot survives, a broken man who has turned his back on Britain and his forbidden love of Guinevere. Yet one knight, scarcely more than a boy, fights amid the ruins to keep Arthur’s dream alive: Galahad, the son of Lancelot.

Before his death, Arthur swore the young knight to undertake a quest: a search for the scattered treasures of an ancient king. On the recovery of these powerful relics–a grail, a spear, and a sword–hinges the future of Britain. But it is the past that torments Galahad. He cannot forget or forgive his father’s betrayal of his king. Nor can he banish thoughts of the intoxicating Dandrane, sister of his friend Percival, from his mind. Yet only a man pure in heart can fulfill the prophecy of the Lady of the Lake.

Not since The Mists of Avalon has an author so brilliantly reimagined and brought to life the enduring Arthurian legends. Weaving back and forth through time, from Arthur’s mighty reign and commanding influence to Galahad’s ultimate quest to preserve the destiny of a nation, The Grail Prince is an unforgettable epic of adventure and romance, of clashing swords and hearts set in a magical world as deadly as it is beautiful.

This amazing chronicle of Galahad of Lanascol was enough to keep me from sleeping for three whole days! I couldn't put it down. The transition from present to past is effortless, although i confess, I was tempted at times to skip parts so I could continue the story from where she left it. This is one of the most awesome Arthurian books I've read in a long ime.

Having read & thoroughly enjoyed 'The Child Queen' and 'The High Queen' (now collectively 'Queen of Camelot'), I was very excited to get my hands on this book, and I was not disappointed. McKenzie does an excellent job of bringing her characters to life, and she does a particularly good job with the conflicted, always-searching Galahad. I found his romance with Dane deeply satisfying, and watching him grow and mature through the pages is very enjoyable. The author uses flashbacks to jump around in time. We see Galahad as a young boy, an adolescent, and a young man. Peeks into his past add further depth to his character. I highly recommend this book, as well as McKenzie's other novels.

Wow! Grail Prince is Fantastic! If you have read Queen of Camelot, this is a MUST have too! It's Wonderful! At first, I really didn't like Galahad, because of the way he treated Lancelot and Gwen, but I grew to love him just as much as the other characters in the book! I cried and cried at the end because I knew it was over and that the three characters I loved most (Arthur, Gwen, and Lancelot) were finally gone. You don't want it to stop!

I read The Grail Prince the day it hit bookstores. It was an awesome book. It was filled with so many emotions that made me laugh and cry. This book is wonderful because it helps the reader look deeper into the souls of the characters. Personally, I was holding a grudge towards some of the characters after I finished The Queen of Camelot, but this book helped me feel content with all of the characters. It is a wonderful book, a MUST read.

Nancy McKenzie is an amazing author. I have read many King Arthur tales, but none of those books have the energy, passion and drama that The Queen of Camelot has. Nancy McKenzie actually bring the characters to life. I was never really interested in the arthurian legend until I read The Child Queen. After that I was hooked. I have read the Queen of Camelot about ten times already, and I am still not bored of it. I got my sister addicted also. I am so glad that Nancy McKenzie wrote The Grail Prince. I can't wait tto read it. It will definately be amazing.

I have been waiting for a sequel for SO long! When I was younger and my mother told me the story of whom she named me after, I fell in love with the Arthurian tale. But I NEVER ever read anything as good as McKenzie's work. I am so incredibly psyched about this upcomming book... Queen of Camelot is my favorite... and I have read it about four times. I've bought it for all my friends for Christmas! This new book will definitely be outstanding, as all her other work, I'm sure. I cannot wait.

Galahad, the oldest son of Lancelot knows his father loves King Arthur¿s spouse Queen Guenivevre. Galahad also realizes that his weak mother despises her husband, but does nothing except rant to her children. Still he loathes his sire for giving his heart to the wrong person. He concludes that women are feeble and deceitful and vows to avoid all females, preferring abstinence to a woman¿s wiles. When Arthur nears death following the battle of Canlann against his own son, he asks Galahad to fulfill a quest. He wants Galahad to unite Excalibur with the Grail and the Spear so that his beloved Britain will never be invaded. Galahad travels forever seeking the answers to what Arthur laid on him. If he learns how to love, he would find the treasures are near, but the truth is even the woman who apparently is his destiny cannot seem to reach his heart. Mostly through Galahad¿s eyes, this fantasy is a strong look at Camelot after King Arthur¿s death. The story line is action-packed, but is more of a character study than the usual genre novel. Readers see inside into the soul of Lancelot paying the piper for his heroism and sacrifice. However, this is Galahad¿s tale as he struggles to overcome the lessons of his childhood that focused on his mother¿s hatred of his father for his unrequited love and subsequent family neglect. Arthur is more of a father to the troubled lad. The GRAIL PRINCE will enchant the Camelot crowd who will demand that this Yankee author provide more tales in King Arthur¿s Court. Harriet Klausner

Its finally here! A new Nancy McKenzie book! You have no Idea how LONG I have been waiting for a new story by this incredible author! I first read The Child Queen and The High Queen about four years ago, and since then I have had to replace my copies because they have fallen apart from exstensive re-readings! Serious, they are that good! If you are new to this author I highly recommend her, you will need a box of tissues! Incredible!
