The High Queen
A spell-binding tale of Guinevere and Arthur, perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Judith Tarr.
At the side of King Arthur, Guinevere reigns strong and true. However, she soon learns how the dark prophecy of her birth will reveal itself. She is unable to conceive, and Arthur’s only true heir is Mordred, offspring of a cursed encounter with the witch Morgause.
Now Guinevere must make a fateful choice. She decides to raise Mordred, teaching him to become a ruler and to honour Camelot. She will love him like a mother.
Mordred will be her greatest joy – and the key to her ultimate downfall.
This epic tale of love, adventure and treachery is brought to life anew in Nancy McKenzie's vivid retelling of one of the most famous queens of them all.
