A stunning tale of romance and magic set against the legendary backdrop of King Arthur’s court.

At nineteen the beautiful Lady Rhian is clearly of marriageable age. But her father seems reluctant to give his blessing to any of her suitors. When she discovers the true reason for this – that in return for her mother's life he promised her to a sorcerer – she runs away to join a convent.

The sorcerer, Euberacon, is determined to exact his payment and waylays Rhian on the road, but she is rescued by the valiant Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur's Round Table, who gallantly offers to escort Rhian to Camelot.

Gawain has grave tidings to bring to Arthur – the Saxons are growing restless, and the threat of war looms. He has taken a great risk in stopping to help Rhian. But when a band of Saxons attacks them, Rhian proves that her skills include more than tapestry and gossip – and Gawain will be captivated as much by her bravery as by her beauty.

    This romantic fantasy recreates Camelot in all its glory and, if Arthurian legends are your thing, then don't miss this.The Lady Risa escapes from her father after learning of his promise to give her over to an evil sorcerer in exchange for the life of her beloved mother. Enter Sir Gawain, Kings Champion and Knight of the Round Table and, after several (rather lucky) escapes from marauding Saxons seeking their blood, love blossoms.The old tale of Gawain and the Green Knight has been reworked beautifully; Risa's feelings of despondency at the loss of her home and her father's betrayal, fear of the evil mage capturing her soul and her growing feelings for Gawain wrapped in the knowlegde of his superior station in life.Interestingly there are no signs of the passionate ill-fated affair between Lancelot and Guinevere. Lancelot seen through the eyes of Gawain is portrayed as vain and boastful.Well recommended for all fantasy lovers - a different style from Zettel's 'Isavalta trilogy' but gripping none the less. I'll definitely be buying the sequel 'Camelot's Honour'.....

    I picked up this book with a little trepidition, as an avid medieval film and book fan i thought it would not live up to my expectations, as so many books have in the past. I am amazed to say that I could not put this book down!it was absolutely perfect, blending just the right amount of realistic romance and adventure and having read the following 2 books I cant recommend them enough!

    I thought this book would be awesome. It's got all the right ingredients - Camelot, romance, and an evil sorceror. But it came off as cheesy and cliche. Lady Rhian is perfect, and Gawain's love for her seems entirely unfounded. It's a humorous read if you don't take it seriously, but as a book it's not great.
