The last of a trilogy. This one, like the second, I found Guenevere fickled when it came to her anger and trust issues with Lancelot. And half way through the book I thought the story wrapped up. I had to 'slog' through another quarter of the book before the story flowed again for me -- at this point Guenevere kind of grows up (or at least out of her anger and trust issues). The three books are worth reading all the way through. The story ended much differently then I was expecting. I would say it was worth the read.

honestly, I couldn't get into this version of the tale. It's just not what I was interested in and the scattered, jumpy way it's presented did not help

The conclusion of Miles' Guenevere Trilogy covers the destruction of the Round Table and the dispersal of the knights on their quests for the "Holy Grail". Sir Galahad makes his brief and seemingly pointless appearance, Mordred rises to power and ultimately challenges Arthur, and Guenevere contines her complicated relationship with Lancelot.

Brokenhearted at her parting from Lancelot and anguished over the loss of the sacred Hallows of the Goddess, Guenevere reconciles with Arthur. But their fragile peace is threatened by a new presence at Camelot, Mordred, Arthur's son by Morgan le Fay, has come to be proclaimed heir to Guenevere and Arthur's kingdoms. At his knighting, the great Round Table, owned by the Queens fo the Summer Country since time immemorial, cracks down the center and a terrible darkness falls over Camelot. In the midst of the chaos appears a new knight, Sir Galahad, who may hold the key to the mystery of the stolen Hallows. His arrival sets into motion the Quest for the Holy Grail and the fall of Camelot, which brings Guenevere to the brink of the most dreaded tragedy of all...and may ultimately fulfill her destiny as the greatest Queen of the Isles.
