Product Description

Product Description

"Finally, a new literary treatment of this fabulous heroine. I couldn't put it down." Beth Simmons, Cork

"The Warrior Queen drew me into an enchanted world I didn't want to leave, can't wait for the sequel." Claire Jackson, Neath

"Arthurian Legend at its best..." Mark Stone, Kentucky

A stunningly moving romance based around the life of Guinevere and Arthur's Court.

Never before has the magical world of Queen Guinevere, King Arthur and Lancelot and the knights of the Round Table been so deeply explored than in this warming saga of passion, duty and infidelity. Drawing on a rich seam of historical sources Lavinia Collins has created a fictional masterpiece, and epic romance that will stand the test of time.

The Warrior Queen is the first full novel length instalment of the epic Guinevere Trilogy. Download A Champion's Duty (Book 2) here: www.amazon.com/dp/B00JD35Z3W and The Day of Destiny here: www.amazon.com/dp/B00L0MA2HI/

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely blown away! 7 April 2014
By Anouska
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started this thinking it would be a nice light holiday read but before I knew it I was completely swept up in the story. I was engaged on so many levels - not just the passion and drama of the story but also the depth of the characters and the confident prose. Collins has created a world well-rooted in traditional Arthurian literature, but she is not afraid to look at it with fresh eyes, reinterpreting old stories. In Guinevere I found a refreshingly positive female role model - relatable, strong, and independent, without feeling that the author had created her thus in order to make an overtly feminist point.
Very excited to see where Collins goes next - I have no doubt it will be as exciting, intelligent, and enjoyable as this.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely 2 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Very enjoyable indeed, I loved how the writing transports you to another world and inside Guinevere’s thoughts. I hadn’t read anything in this genre before, but I loved this mix of romance and legend. 5 stars. It says the sequel will be released in Spring. Wish it was sooner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping wonderful book 2 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this so much - I didn't want it to end. The world of Guinevere is captured brilliantly and Ms Collins knows just how to keep the tale moving along. Thank goodness the second volume is out so quickly, and there's a third to come. More please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completly engrossing 4 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I picked this book up on a cold wet day and it certainly warmed me up! It is a compelling, engrossing, not to mention steamy, version of the Arthurian legend. It draws the reader through a world of ladies fair and their knights, of witches, magic, love and duty in such a way that it is not surprising it is difficult to put down.

Guinevere is believable and relatable and Collins allows you to see her journey from princess bride to Warrior Queen as a journey of herself as much as circumstance. She captures the essence of being a woman in a way that makes it hard for any reader, male or female, not to relate to her.

Collins style is real, gritty and sensual and I cannot wait for the sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars romance and fantasy - a great read 4 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the first page this re-imagining of the story of Queen Guinevere grips and draws the reader in. Ms Collins' racy narrative strikes the right note with the modern reader. But she draws effortlessly too on what is clearly a deep and sympathetic knowledge of history and legend. Great to know that there are two more volumes to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 3 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
If there was the option of giving this book six stars I wouldn’t hesitate to do so. It’s beautifully written, with a satisfyingly gritty protagonist and a sprinkling of magic for good measure. Definitely a crowd-pleaser!

I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone with even a passing interest in romance, fantasy, or legend, and will be the first to buy the next instalment when it’s released!

A well-written story that remains historically accurate and tells a tale full of adventure, intrigue, scandal and sex. Strong characters, beautifully flowing descriptive prose and an underlying tone of sexual tension all intertwine to make this a fantastic twist on a well-known love story that's both refreshing and entertaining..... can't wait for the second book!
