If you could sum up Daughter of Destiny in three words, what would they be?
Guinevere is badass...
What was one of the most memorable moments of Daughter of Destiny?
I loved the introduction of Guinevere. Too often her character is made to be this evil villain, rather than a pawn in the games of men. Learning about her history and the talents that she possesses was enlightening and important to the story.
Which scene was your favorite?
Any scene involving her Lover. While not all were happy moments it offered a glimpse into the other relationship that Guinevere had.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book made me thoughtful. I have read about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round-table since I was a young child, and every telling painted Guinevere in an unflattering light. This book changed those preconceived notions and I am very excited to read the future series.
Any additional comments?
This audio book was graciously provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review
I have always been interested in British history. It is rich with what could be fact or fantasy, but either way, always fascinating. The story of Guinevere, Authur, Knights of the Round Table, Merlin-all of it-takes us back to a time in history where even speculation is remarkable given that it was so long ago. People are still telling the story. Even with the most meticulous research, the truth will never really be known. I think that is the reason it can still be told and augmented with the author's imagination.
Daughter of Destiny: Book 1 is the story of Guinevere's early life, from 11 years old to about 16, when she is betrothed to Authur. From what I have read previously on this subject, there are variations from what may or may not be the truth. Who really knows?
It was well written and Serena Scott Thomas does a fine job with the narration. This book was gifted to me for an honest review via Audiobook Boom! The next book in the series was also offered and I wish I had asked for that one too, as I really enjoyed this one!
