review É Beloved Exile King Arthur is dead Surrounded by traitors and upstarts Guinevere must defend the empire she stru. While I loved the first Firelord novel and was riveted with the portrayal of a hardened and manipulative Guenevere I found this volume harder to get through Parke Godwin s prose is supple rich and real throughout It is never forced and flows through landscapes and conversations effortlessly He also refreshingly stays away from the new age agenda of Marion Zimmer Bradley and the Evangelical agenda of Stephen Lawhead but ultimately falls short in that I failed to find interest in a Guenevere without Arthur not because she cannot fare on her own rather because Godwin delivers a story line I cannot get into The ueen is captured by the Saxons and she is owned humiliated and even loved by her enemy Sounds promising Well in a way the short form of the story does sound promising but sprawled into novel in a cramped paperback with very little breaks for the eye had me skimming upon occasion Matters weren t helped much further in that my paperback was falling apart in my hands But let me get back to the story Many characters who are typically dead in the classic versions after the passing of Arthur are still alive Gareth and Eleyne to mention but two This takes some getting warmed up to but while I m doing that I am completely thrown by how Guenevere is given a new love interest Gunnar and there is one scene in there that is beyond erotic something that was only hinted at in her relationship with Arthur and barely explored with Lancelot I m still not sure what to make of a Guenevere servicing a Saxon as his slave except that the execution left me somewhat cold I was no longer interested in the manipulative spitfire that was the Guenevere of the first Firelord novelIn the end I can only recommend this novel to those who are trying to spend their lifetime reading everything Arthurian Personally after this one the third Firelord novel just as well may sit on my shelf a long time before I get to it if ever

review É Beloved Exile Ggled so desperately to help forge But she is driven to the depths of servitude to a bold Saxon t. My favourite rendition of Arthuriana I think despite the man himself being dead before the story starts This is the story of what happened next Guinevere is trying to keep Britain together but things go a bit pear shaped and she winds up a slave to a Saxon farmer However she finds that it isn t that bad and that the Saxons aren t necessarily as bad as she once thought handy for those of us who are Inclined to look at the legend of Arthur as being an historical iteration of the Brexit story but with a bit glamour Guinevere comes to admit and love these invaders and when she returns to her former life is considered a radical for listening to the common voices Something that occurred to me on this reread was that Guinevere reminded me of another ueen of England who had a tumultuous life and was considered a harlot by her enemies and a paragon by her admirers Eleanor of Auitaine She has the same vast knowledge train of followers and let for life A uick check of some books and some googling led me to the first great popularisation and consideration of Arthur as a true historical figure as being during the reign of the Plantaganets and the idea that it happened to add some mystiue to the rule of Henry and Eleanor It s not too far a stretch Eleanor did foster a court that loved old stories and she was nobodies fool Anyway back to the book Mr Godwin seems a little too fond of his lead character at times but this is a great read that asks some interesting uestions about legends and myths and what we do with them

review É Beloved Exile Hane who is unaware of her true identity and about to discover of humanity than she ever imagined. This is the seuel to Firelord but unlike many seuels I thought it was a much better book Where Firelord spent a lot of time working in elements of the traditional story this tale of Guinevere leaves what we knew behind as it creates a rich historical fiction of what may have happened in Britain after Arthur s deathWhile Guinevere in Firelord may have seemed scheming jealous and cruel although a brilliant politician here in this story told from her point of view her character comes alive and we can fully understand her motives and emotionsWe also see the other side of the story as Guinevere fails in her efforts to keep the warring tribes of Britain together and falls in the chaos to slavers but over time comes to grow as a person and come to a greater understanding of those who were her people We get to see the perspective of the foreign invading tribes and the point of view of the peasants who struggle only to survive as lords battle Godwin does inject a political pro democracy slant that rings a little bit false for its historical setting to me but overall I enjoyed the book

    PDF NEW [Beloved Exile] This is a Guenevere unlike most of the Gueneveres out there and that's what makes this so fantastic The story almost always ends with Arthur dying maybe and Guenevere packed off to the unknown or a nunnery But what could she have done?
