Praise for Sarah Zettel:
‘Powerful … a strong and passionate vision’ Time Out
‘A triumph of storytelling … rich, compelling and exciting’ Amazon
A stunning tale of romance and magic set against the legendary backdrop of King Arthur's court. At nineteen the beautiful Lady Rhian is clearly of marriageable age. But her father seems reluctant to give his blessing to any of her suitors. When she discovers the true reason for this -- that in return for her mother's life he promised her to a sorcerer -- she runs away to join a convent. The sorcerer, Euberacon, is determined to exact his payment and waylays Rhian on the road, but she is rescued by the valiant Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur's Round Table, who gallantly offers to escort Rhian to Camelot. Gawain has grave tidings to bring to Arthur -- the Saxons are growing restless, and the threat of war looms. He has taken a great risk in stopping to help Rhian. But when a band of Saxons attacks them, Rhian proves that her skills include more than tapestry and gossip -- and Gawain will be captivated as much by her bravery as by her beauty.See all Product description

The Lady Risa escapes from her father after learning of his promise to give her over to an evil sorcerer in exchange for the life of her beloved mother. Enter Sir Gawain, Kings Champion and Knight of the Round Table and, after several (rather lucky) escapes from marauding Saxons seeking their blood, love blossoms.
The old tale of Gawain and the Green Knight has been reworked beautifully; Risa's feelings of despondency at the loss of her home and her father's betrayal, fear of the evil mage capturing her soul and her growing feelings for Gawain wrapped in the knowlegde of his superior station in life.
Interestingly there are no signs of the passionate ill-fated affair between Lancelot and Guinevere. Lancelot seen through the eyes of Gawain is portrayed as vain and boastful.
Well recommended for all fantasy lovers - a different style from Zettel's 'Isavalta trilogy' but gripping none the less. I'll definitely be buying the sequel 'Camelot's Honour'.....
