We took shifts at the oars once we were out of the territory of the Painted People and didn’t, as was more usual among peaceful mariners, go ashore to sleep. We were drenched by squalls and frozen by the icy spring seas breaking over our bows.

With the knowing eye and fiery voice of an accomplished storyteller, Alice Borchardt takes us back to the amazing world of a re-envisioned Camelot in the continuing Tales of Guinevere. Remarkably strong, magically talented, a match for friend and foe alike, Guinevere has come into womanhood—and faces a new relationship with Lancelot that will lead to the sharp-edged triangle of legend. . . .Born of the Highlands, along Pictish shores washed by the icy North Sea, Guinevere, Queen of the Dragon People, has become a woman. She has taken the power offered to her by the Dragon Throne. Now there is no turning back. In order to protect her beloved homeland from the obscene greed of the Saxon raiders, Guinevere knows she must launch an attack. The sub-chiefs refuse to fall in line with her plans (because what does this young thing, barely a woman, know of warfare?) and give her an army of the useless, the outcast, the weakest of their young boys and girls. But the war party must proceed. If it fails, the command of both land and sea will fall to the enemy. Facing her first battle against the pirates on foreign shores, and backed only by a meager band of ill-equipped fighters, Guinevere calls upon the spirits of the dead to aid her in the attack. Diving into the dark, morbid depths, Guinevere suddenly understands more of hate, love, anger, and revenge than she has ever wanted to. But the power the dead provide comes at a severe price. If she makes it through the raid, she will be a changed woman, in more ways than she can possibly imagine. Further south, Black Leg, her childhood companion, sets out on his own. It is a quest to become a man—a man, he hopes, who will be worthy of the newly crowned Guinevere. A shapeshifter and the son of Guinevere’s adoptive man-wolf father, Black Leg (soon to be Lancelot) feels he has much to learn—and even more to prove. He discovers both his inner strength and an unmitigated passion when he meets the Lady of the Lake. But the trials of his journey— both mental and physical—turn out to be more perilous with each step. And when Lancelot and Guinevere are finally reunited, the consequences of both their ordeals will unleash a torrent of anguish and desire.With familiar names brilliantly repositioned for a new generation of Arthurian fans—evil Merlin, conniving Igrane, complex Lancelot, tainted Arthur, and of course, warrior Guinevere—Alice Borchardt’s creation stands as a testament to the power of imagination.From the Hardcover edition.

This is the continuing tale of Guinevere, Arthur, and Lancelot also known as Black Leg (who is also a wolf-shapeshifter). In this second of Alice Borchardt's Guinevere series, Guinevere strives to save her people from the Saxons raiders at any cost. She calls upon the spirit of the dead to aid her in her quest and takes on the fearful pirates on their own home turf. She also has her own nifty set of weapons, self-protecting armor, and the ability to call upon fire to help destroy her enemies.
Meanwhile, Arthur and Lancelot are on quests of their own. Arthur battles minions from King Bade and Lancelot learns much from The Lady of the Lake. Merlin, Igrane and Uther also have their own ordeals showcased briefly. The story switches around to each main character's individual adventures, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting to read more. The detailed descriptions of flora, fauna and everything else in the story was incredible and staggers the imagination.
I was sad to see this novel end as it was at an exciting and pivotal part in the plot. Be sure to read The Dragon Queen first to get a firmer understanding of this latest novel. Excellent Arthurian fantasy! Very much looking forward to the next in this series/trilogy!

A wonderful epic saga by a wonderful and brilliant writer. She is greatly and sadly missed.

Wonderful story, it's just a shame the final book in the trilogy was never finished. The author passed away before she could finish the series, but it's still a good book. It leaves you with fantasizing about the ending and creating your own ending.

Good reading

I love her style of writing and how she can transport you to a completely new world. Her characters are easy to love, hate, pity, and admire.

First book in series was gratifying but this sequel is not suitable for the young audience it's predecessor was aimed at.
I own the hard copy but I just bought a tablet and wanted it with me everywhere I go so I added it to my book collection.
