The Book

The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White was released on November 5, 2019.  

Why did we pick this book?

We enjoy a good fantasy from time to time, and the plot line drew us in. A re-imagination of the Arthurian legend? Um, yes please! Plus, we love a good forbidden romance trope so this is up our alley.  The book’s synopsis features the words “forbidden romance,” “deadly josts,” and “duplicitous knights.” What more could you ask for? 

What is the book about?

The Guinevere Deception is a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend. Princess Guinevere has arrived in Camelot to marry the illusive King Arthur. Magic is threatening the kingdom, and the great wizard, Merlin, has sent Guinevere to marry Arthur…and become his protector. Except Guinevere is harboring a secret. She is really a changeling, and her name is not really Guinevere. While at court, Guinevere must navigate the kingdom’s politics and keep Arthur out of harms way as a magical force tries to reclaim the kingdom.

What other YA books has the author written?

White wrote the Paranormalcy series, the Conqueror’s SagaSlayer and a short story in My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories.

  1. Hmmm. The changeling plot sounds like a really interesting way to spice up the Arthurian legend. Sounds fun! I think I actually already added this to my GoodReads TBR, but I think I’ll just bump it up a couple spots. 🙂
