P.C. Cast brings a new twist to the King Arthur and the tale of Camelot. With a funny leading lady who learns to make the best of a strange situation, to say the least, Isabel will keep you smiling throughout the book.
Merlin has gone into a deep dreamless sleep in response to seeing King Arthur’s suffering and sadness. Arthur has learned of the betrayal of two of his most loved, the man he considered as a son, Lancelot, and his wife Guinevere, but he has decided to pretend he is ignorant of their affections to protect them from being sentenced to death as the law of Camelot requires. The Goddess of Legend (water) wants Merlin back, but the only way to get him to return from his deep sleep is to save King Arthur’s heart and thereby, Merlin’s as well.
Isabel has been destined to die, but the Goddess of Legend (Viviane) has other plans for her as she sends her to Camelot during King Arthur’s time to seduce Lancelot and save King Arthur’s heart and marriage in the process. Of course the best laid plans never go as planned, and we discover that the recurring theme throughout this retold tale is that, “the heart wants what the heart wants”.
King Arthur of Camelot has had a rough time pretending to not notice what is happening between his wife and queen, Guinevere, and his most beloved soldier, Lancelot, who has been like a son to Arthur. However, he has an even harder time stopping his growing attraction for the visiting countess, Isabel. How can a woman from the present help save the heart of a man of the past? Will Isabel be able to live her last dying wish given the second chance that the Goddess Viviane has given her? Not your usual twist at the end, but definitely always interesting and different. So if you like your stories funny, real humor with a lot of fantastic magic, this one is for you.
