"terrific romantic fantasy"
King Arthur is dead and Morgen has placed amoral Kerrigan
of the darkest shadows on the throne of Camelot; Kerrigan,
more demon than human, a soulless one that the Knights of
the Round Table fear. The only hope for the future resides
in a peasant Seren, but Morgen recognizes she, if allowed
to grow, will be the next Merlin and a threat to her rule.
Kerrigan captures the innocent Seren, who knows what she
faces and boldly challenges her jailer even as she
concludes that she must use her female charms to seduce
Kerrigan in order to escape because wizardry will prove
futile. Shockingly her courage and spirit reaches perhaps
the last human cell inside Kerrigan's heart and to both
their amazement the pure Seren and the evil Kerrigan fall
in love, a feeling forbidden by Morgen.
Camelot fans will want to read this terrific romantic
fantasy, the Lords of Avalon's tale. The exhilarating story
line contains a dark "villain" who has to choose between
the redemption of love and the power of evil; both very
enticing. As always Kinley MacGregor insures the
unbelievable seems plausible while also employing humor to
enhance an overall dark plot. Fans of the series will
appreciate the "cat and mouse" lead couple as love is the
last enchantment either expected between them.
