Publisher's Summary

The gripping conclusion to the acclaimed Arthurian fantasy trilogy from New York Times best-selling author Kiersten White finds Guinevere questioning everything - friends and enemies, good and evil, and, most of all, herself.

While journeying north toward the Dark Queen, Guinevere falls into the hands of her enemies. Behind her are Lancelot, trapped on the other side of the magical barrier they created to protect Camelot, and Arthur, who has been led away from his kingdom, chasing after false promises. But the greatest danger isn’t what lies ahead of Guinevere - it’s what’s been buried inside her. 

Vowing to unravel the truth of her past with or without Merlin’s help, Guinevere joins forces with the sorceress Morgana and her son, Mordred - and faces the confusing, forbidden feelings she still harbors for him. When Guinevere makes an agonizing discovery about who she is and how she came to be, she finds herself with an impossible choice: fix a terrible crime, or help prevent war. 

Guinevere is determined to set things right, whatever the cost. To defeat a rising evil. To remake a kingdom. To undo the mistakes of the past...even if it means destroying herself. 

Guinevere has been a changeling, a witch, a queen - but what does it mean to be just a girl?

Brilliant Narration

Bring the tissues and your favorite treat. You're going to need them. This has both enriched and bleached my heart. So much love and dispear, plotting and planning and stunningly brilliant realizations are lovingly crafted into this memorable tale. It's epic and it's so much grander than it's predecessors. This is the Arthurian legend that should always have been told!

Guinevere has my heart, like all of it. She desires to do the right thing, and sometimes the way forward is covered in brambles and briar. But always, it's her wish to save the island and it's people. It's ingrained into her make-up. She is the perfectly imperfect character that you're going to adore.

I have to say the twist of Lancelot's gender was vastly intriguing. It made for a lot of whats ifs and what could bes. And it's my belief that this spectacular author created a version that is easy to champion.

Arthur has my heart as well. Who doesn't want him to have his queen's heart? He was just a boy trying to rule an kingdom when so much was against him. And having magical influenced that had unsavory intentions was never going to serve him well.

Unique Retelling of a Classic

I have such mixed feelings. I really enjoyed the unique perspective while at the same time I had such a hard time with how foolish Guinevere is in the story. With each book of the trilogy she becomes more irrational, reckless, and foolish. Arthur is such a non entity with 1/3 to 1/2 of the story is just repeated sulking, guilt, and remorse that could have been used to give more character development for Arthur and Lancelot providing them with depth. These two characters were flat and symbolic more than they were characters and did nothing to move the story forward. It was actually very annoying and at times made me upset and to some degree bored. BUT the actual story is unique and very creative so I do recommend it.

It was a pretty good ending

I found myself bored through some parts of this story. It wasn't bad at all but it wasn't great either. I'm not sure about the ending but as long as everyone is happy I guess that's all that matthers
