Looking for a historical novel that has suspense, romance and can't-put-it-down appeal? Well you've come to the right place. Daughter of Destiny by Nicole Evelina is the first book in a series about Guinevere. I for one have always been intrigued about this historical figure whether fact or fiction. This author did this story right! From the writing and detail given, it is obvious that Nicole did her research. She told this novel in little bits and pieces that just kept adding up for me. I was very invested in this one and can't wait for the second one to be revealed.
Guinevere is dependent on no one. She is an intelligent, caring, compassionate young woman who is easy to relate to and believe in. Guinevere will tug at your heart strings and make you excited to read what happens next. Every character that plays a part in Guinevere's story is magnificent. The pace and pages of this book were perfect. Nothing was drawn out and it ended at just the right point to get you psyched for the next one.
The story starts with Guinevere being shipped off from her parents and the home she loves in order to go to Avalon and figure out where her visions are coming from. She is stripped of her mother and the teaching of weapons. She is lost and alone when she arrives but quickly sees a future in Avalon. The women she learns with are like sisters to her expect for one who is always completing with her. Just when Guinevere can see a future at her new home, things happen that force her to leave.
That is just a taste of this novel. If you want more pick it up. I can't believe it only has 9 reviews so far on Goodreads. This novel deserves the praise and reviews of all readers.
Praise"A gripping read that brings a wonderfully depicted Guinevere tumbling out of the shadows of myth." - Anna Belfrage, author of The Graham Saga "Nicole Evelina shows a deep and passionate love for the Arthurian world, and her re-weaving of the story of Guinevere and Arthur makes for enjoyable reading. With more volumes to come, if you like stories of Camelot, ancient priesthoods, magical Avalonian dreams and embattled romance, this is for you." - John Matthews, author of 'Arthur of Albion' and 'The Camelot Oracle'. "Colorful and exciting...love all the characters. You will have a ball with this book." - Serena Scott Thomas, actress and audio book narrator
