Guinevere: At the Dawn of Legend Review

"Think before acting," her father always warned. But Princess Guinevere is ruled by her heart. Her betrothal to King Arthur has not changed this.

When Guinevere and Cedwyn's latest adventure takes a dangerous turn, they find themselves embroiled in a life-or-death struggle as foretold by Merlyn's Goddess of the Stones.

Renegades--foiled in their attempt to kidnap the princess--steal the children of Cadbury Castle to sell as slaves. Guinevere and Cedwyn vow to rescue the children, but a miscalculation puts them all in more danger. The plan quickly unravels, and Guinevere's impassioned decisions come crashing down as Cedwyn chooses to turn his dream of becoming a knight into reality. Will their courage be strong enough to survive, or will one make the ultimate sacrifice?"

I’m a retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long past. Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and Medieval Worlds. Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-Heart to read more through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers set in these worlds—Ancient Egypt, Medieval Wales, and coming soon, a hair-raising adventure through ancient worlds in search of 5 rare Phoenix Feathers.

All of my books come with Free study guides and/or extensive Back-of-the-Book materials.

My husband and I love to travel. In 2008, we spent three weeks in Egypt traveling by local train from one end of the country to the other; in 2014, we spent three weeks in the UK driving over 1700 miles through England, Wales, and Scotland; and in 2016, we spent a week in Iceland. We’ve also traveled to Mexico, Jamaica, and Aruba. Our next big adventure will be to Greece and Italy.

When I’m not writing or traveling, our 4 grandkids keep us busy.

I reviewed Both Book 1 and Book 2

Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend 

4.5 Out of 5 Stars

I enjoyed reading this book. It was the perfect length for the age group and had fantastic pacing and wording as well.  There was a lot of adventure, pulling in loads of different aspects of the Arthurian legend. The book itself was quite light-hearted, and while there were some difficult choices to be made by the characters it was done in a way that is completely keeping with the target age group.

There really are no warnings. This is a perfect book for children and young teens.

Guinevere: At the Dawn of Legend

5 out of 5 Stars

This book was a complete change of pace from the first book. The main characters are forced to grow up fast. War has ravaged the land and all the horrors that come with war are thrown into the mix. The book sped past and ends of a cliffhanger, I actually had to check to make sure that I had downloaded the entire book because I thought there would be more. This is not necessarily a bad thing and it makes it easier for the age group to read shorted chapters and books.

There are a few warnings for this book. People are killed and others captured. It is however very well done and again appropriate for the age group. However unlike the first book, where I would be fine giving it to younger children, for this book you will definitely want to make sure they are not too young and can handle the darker storyline.
