Editorial Reviews

Review

"What a refreshing twist to a historical fiction nearly as old as time...Author Nicole Evelina not only spins a refreshing new thread told from Guinevere's POV, she weaves an entire tapestry rich in color, depth, and scope...With larger than life characters, a gamut of emotions, mystical forces and hate-worthy villains this is historical fantasy at its finest!" - InD'Tale Magazine (4.5 star, Crowned-heart review)

"Lovers of historical fiction, as well as those who enjoy fantasy, will delight in this gem." - Chanticleer Reviews

"An enthralling saga." - The Wishing Shelf Book Awards

"Evelina writes [the court intrigues] with terrific energy and page after page of vivid dialogue. She very adroitly exploits the known quantities of the core Arthurian story; readers know to expect the division of Guinevere's affections, and the sensitive emotional variations Evelina works into the story are expertly done. This is a fine, gripping series." - Historical Novel Society 

"Captivating. I couldn't put it down. Guinevere's story for a new generation." - Bookalicious 

"In Queen of Camelot, Guinevere steps forth as a woman of strength and passion. A woman to admire - and to love!" - Anna Belfrage, author of The Graham Saga

"The book is full of high political intrigue and lots of action as the reader easily becomes immersed in the life of the medieval court of King Arthur. A thrilling addition to the chronicles of Arthur's fated Guinevere." - Readers' Favorite (5-Star review)

From the Author

The story that began in Daughter of Destiny and continues in Camelot's Queen was inspired by Marion Zimmer Bradley's The Mists of Avalon. I loved the book, but I really disliked her portrayal of Guinevere. This led me want to write my own to explore what happened to Guinevere before and after her life with Arthur. My goal in writing it is to rehabilitate the much-maligned character of Guinevere and show the context for the actions that have been given to her throughout the literary evolution of Arthurian legend.
 
Literature tells painfully few things about Guinevere:
  1. she was Arthur's wife
  2. she may have been barren
  3. she was kidnapped by Melwas/Malegant/Mordred
  4. she had an affair with Lancelot (either emotionally or physically depending on the story)
  5. she may or may not have allied with/married Mordred after the fall of Camelot
  6. she ended her days in a convent (but not in my version!)
But no one's identity should be reduced to a handful of incidents. Guinevere had a childhood, a family and dreams for her future. She was a queen and may or may not have been a mother. As for her infamous affair, every situation has a context that is important to understanding it, even when it's the climax that is remembered. Guinevere had reasons for acting as she did and she didn't do it in a vacuum. The circumstances surrounding her affair are just as important as the act itself. The medieval tale of her ending her days in a convent is convenient and moral, but we all know life is messy and usually doesn't end tied up in a nice bow. Chances are good there was far more to Guinevere's story than we've ever heard.
 
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?
