Series: Camelot Rising
Fascinating. . . . Kiersten White has taken the best parts of the Arthurian legend and made them all her own. --Renee Ahdieh, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Wrath and the Dawn series.

A new fantasy series set in the world of Camelot that bestselling author Christina Lauren calls brilliant, reimagining the Arthurian legend . . . where nothing is as magical and terrifying as a girl.

Princess Guinevere has come to Camelot to wed a stranger- the charismatic King Arthur. With magic clawing at the kingdom's borders, the great wizard Merlin conjured a solution--send in Guinevere to be Arthur's wife . . . and his protector from those who want to see the young king's idyllic city fail. The catch? Guinevere's real name--and her true identity--is a secret. She is a changeling, a girl who has given up everything to protect Camelot.

To keep Arthur safe, Guinevere must navigate a court in which the old--including Arthur's own family--demand things continue as they have been, and the new--those drawn by the dream of Camelot--fight for a better way to live. And always, in the green hearts of forests and the black depths of lakes, magic lies in wait to reclaim the land.

Deadly jousts, duplicitous knights, and forbidden romances are nothing compared to the greatest threat of all- the girl with the long black hair, riding on horseback through the dark woods toward Arthur. Because when your whole existence is a lie, how can you trust even yourself? *THE FIRST BOOK IN THE CAMELOT RISING TRILOGY* A rare and enviable mix of impeccable writing, heart-stopping action, lush scenery, and complex, relatable characters . . . brilliant! --New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren Stunning. . . . will leave every reader hungry for more. --Somaiya Daud, author of the Mirage series

Reviews for The Guinevere Deception (#1 Camelot Rising Trilogy)

A YALSA Amazing Audiobook for Young Adults An enjoyable and even thoughtful entry into a mythos that has obsessed us for generations. -NPR Spellbinding,... Unique and refreshing -Hypable A fresh take on Camelot . . . this should be another hit. -Booklist An acclaimed master of the female-centric retelling turns her hand to Arthuriana . . More diverse than many Camelot representations, this is a retelling designed for a modern audience more interested in people than battles and more intrigued by identity and affection than honor and questing. A promising series opener. -Kirkus Reviews With immersive prose, White captures the spirit of Arthurian legend while adding diversity and a bit of powerful feminist flair in this appealing series opener.... Leaves much to be explored in future installments. -Publishers Weekly First in a series, this fantasy novel will appeal to fans familiar with stories of Arthur, and provides an introduction to those unfamiliar.... Full of battling knights and romance, this is a must. -School Library Journal Readers will be dying to fill in the gaps of Guinevere's memory and to continue the atmospheric adventure in this Arthurian retelling. -Bulletin
