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.”

Sword of Light by Katherine Roberts
It is the darkest hour of the darkest Age. King Arthur is dead, killed by his wicked nephew, Mordred. Saxon invaders rampage across the land and forces of evil are gathering. The path to the throne lies open to Arthur's only remaining flesh and blood - Mordred. But there is one with a better claim than Mordred - Arthur's secret child. 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.
