Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer TKono
"Guinevere's Gamble" by Nancy McKenzie is a lengthy book set
in the Dark Ages. It follows Guinevere, the girl who is to
one day marry King Arthur. However, King Arthur is scarcely
mentioned as a present character in the novel.
Additionally, there is no interaction between the two, let
alone talk of marriage. Rather, the plot sticks to
Guinevere's friends and enemies. A large part of the book
talks about one of Guinevere's friends being falsely accused
Book two in a four part series, this book is easy to follow.
Events and characters are explained in depth. The only bad
part is that major plot events in the legend of King Arthur
are omitted; these are most likely saved for the proceeding
books. Most of the book is either full of drama or mystery.
While well-written, this hefty book does have some parts
that make the book unnecessary longer.
