Queen of the Summer Stars by Persia Woolley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the second book in Persia Woolley's Guinevere series and I have enjoyed it every bit as much as the first. The world that Woolley has created feels very much like the world of Author and Guinevere would have been and it feels so alive its easy to get lost in.
In this second installment we find a much more mature Guinevere. She wants to move on to the next stage of her relationship with Author and start a family. Things do go as she always expected them to and she is dealing with the heartache of infertility. There is intrigue and treachery at court as Author's sister, Morgan, works against her at every turn. And later, when she learns Author's secret, there is even more heartache.
I love the relationships that have grown between the characters. Guinevere and Lancelot are both torn between the love of each other and the love for Author and their country. Relationships between other characters and complicated as well and all contribute well to the story. You find yourself immersed in the feelings of these characters and you want to know what's happening to these side stories.
Overall, its a great read full of great characters and woven in a way that draws you in and makes it hard to put down. If you enjoy tales of the round table or even just a good historical fiction than you should pick up this series.
