Summary

If you think you know the story of King Arthur and his mythical sword, think again. Your legends have it wrong.

Here’s the truth: I was never married to Arthur, and he wasn’t a king. Because Arthur never pulled that sword out of the stone. I did.

I, Guinevere.


On the winter solstice, a mysterious sword in a stone appears in the churchyard. Not even the mightiest of the village men can remove it, until fifteen-year-old Guinevere gives it a try. The sword heeds the unsuspecting maiden, proclaiming the unthinkable: she is the blood of Pendrakon, heir to the vacant throne of Camylot.

Guinevere never dreamed she was born royalty. Now, between apprenticing the eccentric wizard, Merlyn; swordplay lessons with an abrasive—albeit, attractive—boy named Lance; and clandestine, magical meetings with the formidable High Priestess of Avalon, Guinevere is swept up in a whirlwind of training and preparation for her monumental new role as future queen. But invasions by the barbarous Saxyns and visitations from mysterious dark forces continually warn that she may be in over her head. Can Guinevere defend the kingdom from the darkness and deception that threaten to seize it? Despite her doubts and the sinister forces working against her, can she harness the power to wield Exkalibur and rule the realm? Or is Camylot already destined to fall?

From the unstoppable pen of C.K. Brooke comes a fresh and unforgettable new retelling seeped in Arthurian mythology. Queen Guinevere has her own tale to share, and it’s nothing like what you thought! Experience the magic and myth of Camylot, Avalon, Merlyn, and Exkalibur like never before as, in the vein of Brooke’s award-winning Secrets of Artemis, this legendary maiden of lore recounts her side of the story.

Review

It's been a while since I read a YA Fantasy novel and the truth is I really liked  the Arthurian Mythology. It's a quick novel to read. It too me about an hour to finish it. We all know about Arthur and the Exkalibur, so it was a nice change to read a retelling of the story with Guinevere as the lead protagonist. She's a strong female character whose life changed in an instant and now she gets dragged in a world full of magic and danger! The storyis well written and it haw plenty twists. Readers who love Fantasy books, should give I, Guinevere a shot!

Stars: 3.5!!!
