"Camelot's Enchantment" was a fascinating book about what could have
happened differently with King Arthur and his knights. I am a huge
fan of anything relating to this time period and of fairies as well.
This story blended the two topics perfectly. The only complaint I
could offer for this book is that in the beginning, it is a bit
difficult to keep all the characters straight, especially Morgan le
Fey and Morgana. The story is a perfect romance, with a healthy dose
of sex mixed in. Readers are sure to get a new outlook on the
Knights of the Round Table and their courageous king.
They might even find a bit of a history lesson in the action packed
paragraphs too. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a
good fantasy story. The descriptions are so vivid, it's like you are
really in the scene with the complex, memorable characters. This is
one story I'll be reading multiple times. The final page leaves a
bit to be desired but hopefully, there will be a sequel. If not,
readers will be responsible for creating their own ideal ending.

Camelot’s Enchantment is not a retelling of the story as we know it.
Instead, it extends the story into the land of Faerie in such a way
that seems tangible. We get to know Lancelot and Gwenhwyfar as well
as the Faerie queen, Morgan, and her demigod consort, Cernunnos.
Anyone who loves reading stories of Arthur, Gwenhwyfar and Lancelot
will love this book.

In the world of Faerie, Morgan Le
Fay is eagerly anticipating the arrival of Lancelot and the
seduction that’s sure to follow. However, even as she attempts the
liaison, her heart is not in it. She begins to realize that what she

beginning to love him. Cernunnos is confused and just wants things

“I won’t deny you are
beautiful, Morgan. But I can—and will—resist your temptations
because there is something better than bedding a woman for lust.”
Morgan stared at him, so surprised that the wind abated and her gown
floated back down. “There isn’t anything better than that!”
“Yes, there is.” Lancelot bowed to her and turned to walk away.
Before he left the garden, he stopped and faced Morgan. “It’s called

Camelot’s Enchantment is not a retelling of the story
as we know it. Instead, it extends the story past what we think of
as common knowledge, and takes us into Faerie in such a way that it
seems tangible. We get to know Lancelot and Gwenhwyfar as well as
Faerie queen Morgan and her demigod consort, Cernunnos. No longer
are Lancelot and Gwenhwyfar burdened by the guilt of betraying
Arthur; they are free to express their love for one another freely,
and they do so often, much to the chagrin of Morgan and Cernunnos.
Morgan’s attempts to seduce Lancelot fail over and over again, as do
Cernunnos’ attempts to seduce Gwenhwyfar. How can Lancelot resist
the wiles of the Queen of Faerie? How can Gwenhwyfar ignore the
passion offered by a demigod? These behaviors make no sense to
Morgan and Cernunnos, who are used to getting their own way. And the
answer they consistently receive from Lancelot and Gwenhwyfar,
“LOVE,” is a foreign concept.
The book is more than an introduction to true love for Morgan and
Cernunnos, however. In the real world, the world outside Faerie,
intrigue brings Arthur and Nimue back from
self-imposed exile to meet—unexpectedly—an evil link to Arthur’s
past that has the potential to destroy not only the real world but
Faerie as well. As these two story lines weave back and forth,
everyone we love comes into harm’s way, one dies as a result of the
evil intrigue, and there’s even a surprising foray into the 21st
Century for Morgan and Cernunnos. All is not lost, however.
Surviving the 21st Century without their powers helps Morgan and
Cernunnos ultimately come to understand what true love is and revel
in the discovery that what they have together IS love.
Camelot’s Enchantment leaves the reader wanting more. It
truly is a page-turner, and has whetted my appetite for more of
Cynthia Breeding’s imaginative take on Arthur, Nimue, Lancelot,
Gwenhwyfar, and the Knights of the Round Table after Camelot.
