Publisher's Summary

Your legends have it wrong. Arthur never pulled that sword out of the stone. I did. I, Guinevere. 

On the winter solstice, a mysterious sword in a stone appears in the churchyard. Not even the mightiest of the village men can remove it, until 15-year-old Guinevere gives a try. The sword heeds the unsuspecting maiden, proclaiming the unthinkable: She is the blood of Pendrakon, heir to the vacant throne of Camylot. Guinevere never dreamed she was born royalty. Now, between apprenticing the eccentric wizard, Merlyn; swordplay lessons with an abrasive - albeit, attractive - boy named Lance; and clandestine, magical meetings with the formidable High Priestess of Avalon, Guinevere is swept up in a whirlwind of training and preparation for her monumental new role as future queen. But invasions by the barbarous Saxyns and visitations from mysterious dark forces constantly warn that she may be in over her head. Can Guinevere defend the kingdom from the darkness and deception that threaten to seize it? Despite her doubts and the sinister forces working against her, can she harness the power to wield Exkalibur and rule the realm? Or is Camylot already destined to fall? 

From the unstoppable pen of C.K. Brooke comes a fresh and unforgettable new retelling steeped in Arthurian mythology. Queen Guinevere has her own tale to share, and it's nothing like what you thought! Experience the magic and myth of Camylot and Avalon like never before as, in the vein of Brooke's award-winning Secrets of Artemis, this legendary maiden of lore recounts her side of the story.

A unique retelling with a great twist!

Guinevere, as you have never read or seen. This story is a unique retelling of Excalibur, the characters actions and personalities are different from the usual stories which makes the story intriguing. The narration is very well done!

Entertaining

This is an alternative telling of the myth surrounding Guinevere and the realm of King Arthur. I found the story and characters to be very entertaining and thoroughly enjoyed a different take on this well known story. Started and finished this audiobook on the same day. I also thought the narration and production were good. Recommended. I was given a copy of this audiobook for an honest and unbiased review.

Charming Twist on a Legend

A wonderful tale, well-told with a girl power twist. A perfect upper middle-grade or young YA to YA even. Enchanting, magical, and girl-i-fied powerful. A sure win for young girls.

ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. AN INTRINSIC TWIST !!!!!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. AN AMAZING STORY WITH ADVENTURE, INTRIGUE AND PLENTY OF HUMOR THOUGH OUT. QUITE A POSSIBLE REALITY IN A TIME LOST TO THE AGES. A GREAT NARRATOR EASY TO FOLLOW. NICE COVER. A GREAT STORY FOR ALL AGES.

A MORAL FOR ALL AGES. THIS STORY IMPLIES THIS.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT FATE HAS PLANNED FOR LIFE OR WHAT THE TOMORROW WILL BRING. TRAIN TO BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE. BECAUSE IT WILL BE REQUIRED OF YOU ONE DAY. ON THAT DAY REMEMBER TO FOLLOW THE TRAINING AND HAVE THE COURAGE AND CONFIDENCE TO SEE THE CHALLENGE THROUGH TO THE FINISH.
