From the Inside Flap
The bestselling author of the acclaimed Merlin Trilogy returns to the magical world of King Arthur and Camelot--to tell a story of daring adventure, unexpected love, and unsurpassed enchantment. . . .
ALEXANDER THE FATHERLESS
Eager, burning, and young, Alexander has come of age to take vengeance on the treacherous King of Cornwall who murdered his father. He sets off toward Camelot to seek justice from King Arthur, only to be diverted by the beautiful and sensual Morgan le Fay, Arthur's sister. Using her wiles and her enchantments, Morgan persuades the young prince to attempt a theft of the Holy Grail. He is unaware her motives are of the darkest nature. . . .
ALICE THE PRETTY PILGRIM
Motherless daughter of a royal duke, Alice has lived a life of lively adventure, accompanying her father on his yearly pilgrimages. Now, on her father's final visit to Jerusalem, she comes under the protection of a young prince whose brothers were murdered, a prince who is in possession of an enchanted silver cup believed to be the mysterious Holy Grail itself.
Thus the stage is set for two young seekers to meet--and to find not what they are searching for but, instead, the greatest treasure of all . . . love.
"A wonderful love story set in the magical times of King Arthur and Camelot."

This is one of the background stories in the Arthurian legends and Mary Stewart has fleshed it out with richly drawn characters. I liked the main characters very much. Alexander grows through his mistakes and Alice proves herself to be quite resourceful. Morgan le Fay plays a major role in the book, Arthur's presence is in the background, and many well-known characters are mentioned while a few appear.
I'd recommend this gentle romance to anyone who enjoys the "less gritty" look at the Arthurian mythos. It is a strong 3.5 stars and a weak 4 stars. I rounded it up because it is well-written and good example of the genre. I think part of the perceived weakness is because it doesn't have the drive of the other Arthurian books she wrote.
