Publisher's Summary

Before queenship and Camelot, Guinevere was a priestess of Avalon. She loved another before Arthur, a warrior who would one day betray her.

In the war-torn world of late fifth century Britain, young Guinevere faces a choice: stay with her family to defend her home at Northgallis from the Irish, or go to Avalon to seek help for the horrific visions that haunt her. The Sight calls her to Avalon, where she meets Morgan, a woman of questionable parentage who is destined to become her rival. As Guinevere matures to womanhood, she gains the powers of a priestess, and falls in love with a man who will be both her deepest love and her greatest mistake.

Just when Guinevere is able to envision a future in Avalon, tragedy forces her back home, into a world she barely recognizes, one in which her pagan faith, outspokenness, and proficiency in the magical and military arts are liabilities. When a chance reunion with her lover leads to disaster, she is cast out of Northgallis and into an uncertain future. As a new High King comes to power, Guinevere must navigate a world of political intrigue where unmarried women are valuable commodities and seemingly innocent actions can have life-altering consequences.

You may think you know the story of Guinevere, but you've never heard it like this: in her own words. Listen and you will hear the true story of Camelot and its queen.

    "Excellent Read!"
    Where does Daughter of Destiny rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've received this copy for an honest review and I have to say even though I am not so into Historical Romances, Guinevere's Tale is one of the best of its kind I've read so far. The first book of continuing series, the story from Guinevere's side, a talented priestess of Avalon whose future is dictated by her status in society. I really enjoyed this book very much, it is very well written, Nicole Evelina did her homework before writing this book and it is an excellent job (mostly because historical fiction is fiction and not accurate in many events).
    Thanks a lot Nicole Evelina and of course Serena Scott Thomas for this book!

    "You don't always get what you want."

    It never occurred to me that Guinevere wasn't just sitting around waiting for Arthur. That like so many of us, she has hopes and dreams for her future and life steps in and changes everything. l really enjoyed this book and recommend it.
