Since the days of King Arthur, there have been poems and paintings done in her name. She is the Lady of Shalott, and now there is a new story about her, from an exciting new talent.

The year is 490 AD. Fiery 16-year-old Elaine of Ascolat, the daughter of one of King Arthur's supporters, lives with her father on Arthur's base camp, the sole girl in a militaristic world of men. Elaine's only girl companion is the mysterious Morgan, Arthur's older sister, but Elaine cannot tell Morgan her deepest secret: She is in love with Lancelot, Arthur's second-in-command. However, when yet another girl -- the lovely Gwynivere-- joins their world, Elaine is confronted with startling emotions of jealousy and rivalry. But can her love for Lancelot survive the birth of an empire?

Great story, but the whole book used poems to tell the story which I didn't like. But if you like reading poems to make a whole story, read , if not, you should probably stay away from this book.

I have to admit the format threw me off when I opened the book, but once I got past that it was a really great read! :)

The author, Lisa Ann Sandell, has a unique style that is very palatable and flows from one scene to the next. Her characters were realistic and human and I truly felt their feelings as I read them (especially in the last few chapters). I enjoy Arthurian tales very much and feel that Sandell truly did King Arthur and his knight's justice. I recommend this book to those who enjoy adventure, drama, coming of age, and romance.

To have loved once and to have not loved again, is like never loving before. I read this book and it reminded me of a poem i wrote a while back.
