On the night of Guinevere's birth, there was a prophecy that foretold she would one day be highest lady in the land and wed to a great king. But 13 years have passed, and the prophecy couldn't be further off. Guinevere is now an orphan and a ward of her aunt and uncle, the king and queen of Gwynedd. Tomboyish and awkward, Gwen is no great beauty, and nobody takes the prophecy seriously--especially not Gwen.
But then one day Gwen meets a strange young man in the woods who claims to be part of an ancient tribe whose mission is to guard and protect her. Then she stumbles across a sinister plot brewing within the castle walls--one she alone might be able to prevent. Guinevere is beginning to realize her destiny is more complex than it seems--and this is only the beginning.

So I am sure that many people have considered Merlin and Arthur and all them medieval time people. But I feel that with Morgana and magic, some characters become a bit underrated. Guinevere is one of them. Destined someday to become a queen, she had a rather mild upbringing. Do read this book about her story; it is pretty interesting. I found that the plot flowed smoothly, and some parts were a bit more interesting than others. Personally, there were some areas that could have been modified to better suit my taste, but I accept it for what it is.
