Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

The Camelot Betrayal by Kiersten White ~ Review


Title: The Camelot Betrayal
Author: Kiersten White
Genre: YA Legend Retelling
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Release Date: November 10th, 2020

Version Read: Kindle ebook

Synopsis: EVERYTHING IS AS IT SHOULD BE IN CAMELOT: King Arthur is expanding his kingdom’s influence with Queen Guinevere at his side. Yet every night dreams of darkness and unknowable power plague her.

Guinevere might have accepted her role, but she still cannot find a place for herself in all of it. The closer she gets to Brangien, pining for her lost love Isolde, Lancelot, fighting to prove her worth as Queen’s knight, and Arthur, everything to everyone and thus never quite enough for Guinevere–the more she realizes how empty she is. She has no sense of who she truly was before she was Guinevere. The more she tries to claim herself as queen, the more she wonders if Mordred was right: she doesn’t belong. She never will.

When a rescue goes awry and results in the death of something precious, a devastated Guinevere returns to Camelot to find the greatest threat yet has arrived. Not in the form of the Dark Queen or an invading army, but in the form of the real Guinevere’s younger sister. Is her deception at an end? And who is she really deceiving–Camelot, or herself?

My Review: When I first started reading this sequel to The Guinevere Deception I had to say that I was a bit disappointed as it started off so slow. The book doesn't actually pick up until about halfway through it. I really want Guinevere and Mordred to get together but that's probably not going to happen since Guinevere and Arthur are finally growing closer. I'm not even going to lie I did start this book back in October and I put it down because I couldn't get into it. I'm glad I picked it back up though and I'm looking forward to reading the third book when it's finally released.

Rating: 4 stars
