The Lovereading4Kids comment

This cracking page-turning adventure is now available in paperback. The future of Camelot is in the hands of Arthur's secret daughter, Rhianna. Utterly gripping, this is the start of a series for 9+ year olds by an award winning author. It's a magical quest based adventure that will appeal to Harry Potter and Tolkien fans. In a sentence, it's Arthurian legend reinvented for a new generation of readers!


Author Katherine Roberts said: “As a big fan of Arthurian fantasy, I’ve always wanted to write my own version of the legend but didn’t want to repeat the old stories. When I found red-haired Rhianna, King Arthur’s daughter, hiding on the enchanted island of Avalon, I knew she would make a great young warrior princess to carry the Pendragon legend to a new generation.”

Brought by Merlin to enchanted Avalon as a baby and raised there for protection, the king's heir must take up a vital quest: to search for the four magical Lights with the power to restore Arthur's soul to his body. Introducing Rhianna Pendragon: unlikely princess and Camelot's last hope.
