This is a very different tale of Camelot, specifically surrounding Gawain. Risa is the daughter of a country barwn who has pledged her to a sorcerer. She flees home and is saved from being captured by the sorcerer by Gawain, heir to Arthur's throne. The story follows their journey and describes how the sorcerer's plot to overthrow Camelot are foiled.

An interesting take on an old legend. Well written with interesting characters. I enjoy it immensely when authors can take an old legend, myth or fairy tale and flesh it out into an absorbing story.

This is the third book I've read this month pertaining to Merlin and/or Avalon. This is the best one yet and it's only the first in a series. It's a tender lover story in the midst of terrible danger. I can't wait to see where [book:For Camelot's Honor|189163] takes this tale.

Lady Risa is promised at birth to the evil sorcerer, Euberacon, who is intent on dethroning King Arthur. Of course, Risa has absolutely no intention of becoming Euberacon's tool of destruction so she flees. She meets up with Saxon forces who are marching on Arthur and is rescued by Sir Gawain himself. Since she will not return to her father, she continues to Camelot with Gawain. They stop at Pen Mahras to recover after the battle with the Saxon's and end up smack dab in the middle of another battle with the Saxons.
