The debut novel by Glynis Cooney
Raised in the shadow of a fort dedicated to training Knights of the Round Table, Deirdre thirsts for adventure.
Instead, at 14, she is sent to court to learn the etiquette and talents of a young woman.
Court life, however, is more fraught with danger than she expected, and Deirdre finds herself entangled in a deadly conspiracy that stretches deep into the very heart of Camelot.
All Deirdre thought she knew and believed in—loyalty, love, bravery—is challenged when she embarks on a quest to defy Fate and save the King.
