The Child Queen
A spell-binding tale of Guinevere and Arthur, perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Judith Tarr.
On the night of Guinevere’s birth, a wise woman declares a prophecy of doom for the child: She will be gwenhwyfar, the white shadow, destined to betray her king, and be herself betrayed.
Years pass, and Guinevere becomes a great beauty, riding free across North Wales on her beloved horse. She is entranced by the tales of brave King Arthur, a courageous warrior who seems to Guinevere no mere man, but a legend.
Then she finds herself betrothed to that same famous king, a hero who commands her willing devotion. Just as his knights and all his subjects have before her, she falls under Arthur’s spell. And then the king’s young bride falls prey to a devastating betrayal...
This epic tale of love, adventure and treachery is brought to life anew in Nancy McKenzie's vivid retelling of the story of one of the most famous queens of them all.
