"An enjoyable and even thoughtful entry into a mythos that has
obsessed us for generations." --NPR "Spellbinding, ... Unique and
refreshing" --Hypable "A fresh take on Camelot . . . this should be
another hit." --Booklist "An acclaimed master of the female-centric
retelling turns her hand to Arthuriana . . More diverse than many
Camelot representations, this is a retelling designed for a modern
audience more interested in people than battles and more intrigued
by identity and affection than honor and questing. A promising
series opener."--Kirkus Reviews "With immersive prose, White
captures the spirit of Arthurian legend while adding diversity and
a bit of powerful feminist flair in this appealing series
opener.... Leaves much to be explored in future installments."
"First in a series, this fantasy novel will appeal to fans familiar with stories of Arthur, and provides an introduction to those unfamiliar.... Full of battling knights and romance, this is a must." --School Library Journal "Readers will be dying to fill in the gaps of Guinevere's memory and to continue the atmospheric adventure in this Arthurian retelling." --Bulletin
