Description-

  • King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table are preparing once again to set out in search of the legendary Holy Grail. This time Morgain le Fay is determined to stop them at any cost, and she knows exactly who is standing in her way. When she kidnaps Ailis, the servant girl whose untrained magical powers grow stronger with every passing day, her vengeance seems to be taking a terrifying turn. Gerard and Newt must work together again to rescue their best friend before it's too late...before Morgain turns Ailis to evil...before Ailis helps Morgain destroy Camelot.

    Ages 10+

Excerpts-

  • Chapter One

    The sunlight filtered down through the large window that dominated the room at the top of the Queen's Tower; its glass was the clearest and finest that craftsmen could make. Only the best was offered to the Queen of Camelot, Guinevere, and her court.

    Today that court, fifteen ladies-in-waiting, chosen for their good breeding, fine manners, and gracious speech, was scattered about the room, sitting on cushioned benches or padded chairs pushed together for better gossiping. They worked at their stitchery and listened to a musician playing a lute quietly off in the corner. The queen sat in the center of the solar on a simple high-backed wooden chair that was practically hidden by the long purple folds of her skirt. Two maids held up brocaded fabrics for her consideration, while a master craftsman stood off to one side, awaiting her decision.

    “Oh, dear. Allison, what have you been thinking to let your threads become so . . . tangled?"

    The woman speaking to her was Caitrin. The eldest daughter of one of the queen's cousins, she was sweet-faced — but with the soul of a viper and a tongue as poisonous.

    Ailis, still not used to the unfamiliar twist on her name that the ladies-in-waiting had given her, looked up from her embroidery. The soft, blue thread had indeed become less a field of flowers than a mess of knots in the fabric she was working on. A woman sitting on the chair nearest to her giggled, then hid her smile behind one hand and looked away when Ailis glared at her.

    Ailis suppressed her instinctive response to Caitrin's usual cruelty, and merely bent her head back down to her work. Calm. Be calm. She hadn't asked to be lifted from the life of a servant, any more than she had asked to become a servant in the first place. She had little to say in her own affairs since her parents had died in a battle in the early years of Arthur's reign. But when she and her friends, Newt and Gerard, had broken the sleep-spell cast by the sorceress Morgain, the queen had decided that Ailis deserved a better future. Gerard, a squire, had also been rewarded. He was given the opportunity to ride out with the great Quest to find the Holy Grail — the very Quest that Morgain's spell had been designed to prevent.

    But they never asked me what I wanted, she thought, many times since she had been sent here.

    Being taught needlework, or how to read out loud in a properly modulated voice, wasn't such a bad thing. It was certainly better than carrying pitchers and platters, which had been her place before. And serving at her queen's side was better than scrubbing floors, which would have been her fate had she been born to a servant's life, rather than coming to it as an orphaned child. But no matter how nice the surroundings, how light the work, the truth was that she had less freedom now than ever before.

    Only Newt, safe in the stable with his beloved horses, had avoided having his life turned completely upside down. Some days Ailis thought that he had been the more fortunate one.

    Ailis looked around the room, careful not to make eye contact with Lady Caitrin, who was still lurking like a vulture waiting to pluck some reaction from her victim. In truth, some of the ladies-in-waiting who served the queen had made Ailis's new life almost enjoyable, calling her “pet" and making a fuss over her the way she thought her mother might have, if her mother had lived.

    But then there were the ladies like Caitrin, who thought she was still nothing more than a serving girl with too many liberties. They never asked me what I wanted, she thought again, but refused to let the sigh she felt building inside her find release. It would be ungrateful, ill-bred. It...
