From the Author
Literature tells painfully few things about Guinevere:
- she was Arthur's wife
- she may have been barren
- she was kidnapped by Melwas/Malegant/Mordred
- she had an affair with Lancelot (either emotionally or physically depending on the story)
- she may or may not have allied with/married Mordred after the fall of Camelot
- she ended her days in a convent (but not in my version!)
Guinevere's Tale (Daughter of Destiny, Camelot's Queen, and Mistress of Legend) is my attempt to answer these questions. In it, Guinevere tells her own story - from the age of 11 to well into her 50s - seeking to right the wrongs history has thrust upon her, to clear away the mists of time and give the reader a clear picture of who she really was, virtues, sins and all. As she says in the prologue: "I deserve to be able to bear witness before being condemned by men who never saw my face. Grieve with me, grieve for me, but do not believe the lies which time would sell. All I ask is that mankind listen to my words, and then judge me on their merit."
Hopefully, through these books I can provide a fully-fleshed out character for women young and old alike to look to in the generations after me. It's my hope that as women continue to claim their power in modern society, they will learn from Guinevere's mistakes, emulate her strengths, and claim her as the heroine and role model she should be. After all, if Arthur gets to be "the once and future king" who is constantly being resurrected and reinvented by authors and filmmakers, why shouldn't his wife have the same privilege?

I did not like Guinevere in Daughter of Destiny. However, I found her to be more likable in Camelot’s Queen. I could empathize with her plight in trying to live with a man she did not love and trying to rule Camelot. She eventually grew to be an excellent military strategist and helped Arthur win many battles. I thought that Ms. Evelina did a wonderful job in portraying Guinevere’s trauma after being kidnapped by King Maleagant. I was heartbroken for Guinevere when she realized Arthur had betrayed her. I could see why her pain turned her eyes to Lancelot. Through these hardships Guinevere became a survivor and a stronger person. Thus, I rooted for Guinevere to find her happiness.
Besides Guinevere, there was not much character growth in the novel. The only secondary character I liked was Arthur’s female spy. Camelot’s Queen made me dislike King Arthur. He was weak and unfaithful. The only reason Arthur is made into an unlikable figure who betrays Guinevere’s love is to justify to Guinevere’s infamous affair with Lancelot. Lancelot seemed too perfect. Their love felt forced. It seemed that she did not really love Lancelot and only used him to get over Arthur’s betrayal.
Overall, this novel is about lost love, betrayal, and inner strength. Camelot’s Queen was a vast improvement over Daughter of Destiny. Unlike the first novel, she did not play a passive role. She played a more active role and was able to stand up for herself. The novel was also more fast-paced. There were more adventures and battles than in Daughter of Destiny. The novel was very well-written, and it seems that Ms. Evelina is very knowledgeable in Arthurian lore. I’m excited to see what’s next in store for Guinevere in the final novel, Mistress of Legend!
