"Guinevere: At the Dawn of Legend is the sequel to Cheryl Carpinello's first Guinevere story, Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend. Both books take the fascinating Arthurian legends and create stories that will entice even the most reluctant of readers. With realistic characters and an exciting plot full of adventure, the reader will be pulled along to an unexpected conclusion. Young readers will certainly easily associate with Guinevere and Cedwyn, who, at their young age, take risks and disobey their parents, while at the same time they reach out to help others. A great way to entice readers, even reluctant ones, to follow the adventures found in legends. "
2017 5-Star Review from Readers’ Favorite
From the Author
This is really Cedwyn's Story
, Guinevere's loyal friend.
Back in 2007, when I first conceived the idea of this story of Guinevere as a young girl, I never intended on writing a sequel. Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend introduced my young readers to this not-so-simple princess and gave them a glimpse into that mystical world of Arthurian Legend which was my intention.
Through the intervening years since Guinevere's publication, a small voice kept bouncing around in my head. Nothing could silence it. Finally one day, I gave in and listened. As I suspected, it was Cedwyn, Guinevere's friend. He insisted that I keep my promise--made in On the Eve of Legend--and make him a knight. Still I resisted and repeated that I never intended to write a book two. Finally, I gave in. Cedwyn gets to be a knight in this book, but not in any way he ever imagined.
Oh, I also agreed to write one more book to complete the trilogy and give Guinevere and Cedwyn their closure. I hope you enjoy their story.
