A captivating new take on Arthurian legend
Morgan, the elder half-sister of newly crowned King Arthur, is on her way to becoming an accomplished witch. She learns quickly and soon makes a name for herself in Camelot.
Yet with war on the horizon, she puts more trust in her magic books and the sword Excalibur than in the people around her.
Morgan is never safe from the sinister, shape-shifting Merlin, or from the marriage plans that young King Arthur has made for her in order to secure his realm.
Will she listen to Merlin’s dark advice? And how far is she willing to go in her quest for freedom?
“It is as well to frighten people as to seduce them to get what you want.”
Enter Morgan’s world...
Lavinia Collins is the author of The Guinevere Trilogy available as a single title in paperback and on kindle, and in separate volumes on kindle only.
Once again, Collins has created complex, intriguing characters, and a vivid world that makes you forget the Arthurian legends are just that, legends. They seem real. It's also refreshing to see them told, for a change, by the female protagonists who are often relegated to one-dimensional characters in the background. Here, Morgan comes forward to tell her own story. And it's a very compelling one.
