WoW #167 – The Guinevere Deception

Posted October 2, 2019 by Lillian in Features / 5 Comments

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday y’all! This week I’m anxiously waiting on The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White. I’ve got an unhealthy obsession with King Arthur and his knights, the myth surrounding them, Merlin and magic, and of course Guinevere. When I first saw that Kiersten White was writing her own spin on Camelot, I knew I wanted it. I didn’t even need a blurb to know I would read it. Her And I Darken is one of the best books I’ve ever read, dark and twisted and oh so good. I can’t wait to get my hands on her Guinevere retelling!

WoW #167 – The Guinevere DeceptionThe Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White
Series: Camelot Rising #1
Published by Delacorte Press on 2019-11-05
Length: 352 pages

From New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White comes a new fantasy series reimagining the Arthurian legend, set in the magical world of Camelot.

There was nothing in the world as magical and terrifying as a girl.

Princess Guinevere has come to Camelot to wed a stranger: the charismatic King Arthur. With magic clawing at the kingdom's borders, the great wizard Merlin conjured a solution--send in Guinevere to be Arthur's wife . . . and his protector from those who want to see the young king's idyllic city fail. The catch? Guinevere's real name--and her true identity--is a secret. She is a changeling, a girl who has given up everything to protect Camelot.

To keep Arthur safe, Guinevere must navigate a court in which the old--including Arthur's own family--demand things continue as they have been, and the new--those drawn by the dream of Camelot--fight for a better way to live. And always, in the green hearts of forests and the black depths of lakes, magic lies in wait to reclaim the land. Arthur's knights believe they are strong enough to face any threat, but Guinevere knows it will take more than swords to keep Camelot free.

Deadly jousts, duplicitous knights, and forbidden romances are nothing compared to the greatest threat of all: the girl with the long black hair, riding on horseback through the dark woods toward Arthur. Because when your whole existence is a lie, how can you trust even yourself?
