"Think before acting," her father always warned. But Princess Guinevere is ruled by her heart. Her betrothal to King Arthur has not changed this.

When Guinevere and Cedwyn's latest adventure takes a dangerous turn, they find themselves embroiled in a life-or-death struggle as foretold by Merlyn's Goddess of the Stones.

Renegades--foiled in their attempt to kidnap the princess--steal the children of Cadbury Castle to sell as slaves. Guinevere and Cedwyn vow to rescue the children, but a miscalculation puts them all in more danger. The plan quickly unravels, and Guinevere's impassioned decisions come crashing down as Cedwyn chooses to turn his dream of becoming a knight into reality. Will their courage be strong enough to survive, or will one make the ultimate sacrifice?"

I’m a retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long past. Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and Medieval Worlds. Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-Heart to read more through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers set in these worlds—Ancient Egypt, Medieval Wales, and coming soon, a hair-raising adventure through ancient worlds in search of 5 rare Phoenix Feathers.

All of my books come with Free study guides and/or extensive Back-of-the-Book materials.

My husband and I love to travel. In 2008, we spent three weeks in Egypt traveling by local train from one end of the country to the other; in 2014, we spent three weeks in the UK driving over 1700 miles through England, Wales, and Scotland; and in 2016, we spent a week in Iceland. We’ve also traveled to Mexico, Jamaica, and Aruba. Our next big adventure will be to Greece and Italy.

When I’m not writing or traveling, our 4 grandkids keep us busy.

This middle-grade book is a continuation of an earlier story, although it reads as a story within itself. Young fifteen year-old Guinevere, betrothed to King Arthur, does not stay home and sit on her hands while she waits for her future husband to return from fighting the rebels threatening Briton. She proves herself a strong and capable young woman as she and Cedwyn, the son of a knight, go on their own adventure to the Wizard’s Stones where they each received instructions and warnings from a goddess. Thus, the two start on a non-stop adventure that blends Christianity, myth, pagan wizardry, and medieval legend. This is primarily young Cedwyn’s story, as he fulfills his charge to assume the role of a knight.

The characters were well-written. I loved the illustrations, and thought they added to the book. Guinevere proved a brave and courageous friend to Cedwyn who came into his own in this book. The story was one of action, and it did not sugar-coat the violence and dangers of the times. Its cliff-hanger ending suggests that the story will continue in another book.
