Oh dear I was becoming a little dubious by the end of book one but I am completely sure at the end of book 2 that I will pass on the final volume of the series Too many historical errors and anachronisms poor characterisation that actually got worse in book 2 or maybe I became less kind and a simplistic style of writing that seemed aimed at YA not adults even though apparently this was not so After reading Gillian Bradshaw's really excellent version of the Arthurian story this paled by comparison nay it dwindled Drops book 3 back to the library

Skillfully combats an accusation of planning to poison Arthur in a country simmering with unrest and scandal But Guinevere's greatest battles are dangers Arthur cannot see ones she'll have to fight on her own And all the while she must reconci. Most King Arthur stories tend to have the main character – be it Arthur or Guinevere or Merlin or Mordred or Morgan or anyone of the regulars – standing around rubbing temples in exasperation moaning about being surrounded by barbaric idiotsHere it is Guinevere playing the part of only sane one here but not doing a lot about it probably because she realizes there isn’t much one can doThe book covers a solid ten years but there’s no sense of time passing That and with the amount of name dropping and character pairing on and off it feels very much like the kind of soap opera where nothing changes season to season and people standing around talking about all the other characters and gossiping about who’s dating whoUm Gwenny don’t you have like western civilization to save Are we still talking about Tris and Issy

Perhaps it's mostly the comparison with Sharan Newman's books which I forced myself through yesterday but Persia Woolley's books were like a breath of fresh air I genuinely didn't want to put them down even if I'm technically being bribed to read them I'm going to uite happily go back and immerse myself in the third book of the trilogy and there'll be no skimming This is a Guinevere I can like and admire even a Lancelot I can like She and Arthur and Lancelot are all human with their own failings vulnerabilities The narration by Guinevere is so open hearted and honest and her love for both men comes throughI think the way Persia Woolley plays the various episodes from Arthurian myth is very good I liked her version of Gawain and Ragnell for example and though her Tristan and Isolde are pathetic there's something compelling about their story and how it touches on Guinevere It's irritating to find that once again Morgause and Morgan are powerful in charge of their own sexualities and evil It's a trope in Arthurian fiction I could do without although this Guinevere is positive toward sex and there's a vitality and life in her relationship with Arthur that's refreshingLooking forward to reading the third book
