When a god desires a mortal woman.
Accompanied by Gwenhwyfar, King Arthur is healed on the holy isle of Avalon. But Avalon is surrounded by the ever-shifting Land of Faerie. When Myrddin attempts to pass them through, Cernunnos, god of the Wild Hunt, captures Gwenhwyfar and keeps her in Avalon, intending to make her his mistress.
Can a half-fey prince keep her from her Fate?
Enraged that Gwenhwyfar has been abducted, Lancelot swears he will bring her back to Camelot. A vision of the Holy Grail allows him to find the portal to the Land of Faerie, but Morgan le Fey has other designs for him. Will Lancelot's love for Gwenhwyfar be strong enough to endure in a world where Time is distorted and illusion reigns?
Have you ever wondered about the real story of King Arthur, Sir Lancelot and Queen Gwenhyfar? Have questions like; “Who was the Lady of the Lake, was there really an extraordinary sword called Excaliber, was there a real Arthur, what became of Camelot”… come to you?
Fate of Camelot is a well-researched story and adheres to what we know as the Arthurian legend. The main characters Arthur, Lancelot and Qwenhyfar cross these pages in a magical way. The characters appear realistic, both to our inner beliefs of the story and almost as if they were there in front of us. Pieces of that long ago story are explained realistically as the author weaves the story. That’s what this story is really; a woven tapestry of characters, places, events, taking place and ending in a plausible way. It’s a masterful story that has held me enthralled throughout the reading (as soon as this is done I plan to re-read it savoring the love, honor and explanations of that long ago time).
If you love historical fiction you will love this story. There is not one mistake in the storytelling. The characters, language and events all ring true. The love scenes are sweet sensualism at it’s best. I promise that you will not be disappointed.
