Lie, How Can You Trust Even Yourself THE FIRST BOOK IN THE CAMELOT RISING TRILOGY This is a 4 star ending trapped behind a 2 star first half The Guinevere Deception is a story about women s agency and their role in myth and cleverly ties together known aspects of the Arthurian legends with some much needed LGBT and modern sensibilities.Pacing 1 2Introduction Surprises Ending I m so mad at this book it does not put its best foot forward The Guinevere Deception starts out so simplistic, so run of the mill, that it s boring Boring boring Skim worthy, even But then, we cross the hump The second half of this book is gorgeous It s lyrical, it s feminist, it s evocative of the Kiersten White that I remember from my long ago read of And I Darken where women had their own agency and commentary that I put down my kindle and went what Is this the same story The Guinevere Deception follows Guinevere, the wife of the newly made King Arthur Arthur has won Camelot, and now he rules in a realm where magic is pushed to the edges of his borders and everything is free from chaos and everything is wholesome and good Ha Obviously, this is a disaster waiting to happen Enter Guinevere, except we, as the reader, know the Guinevere is not really the princess at all, but the daughter of Merlin, sent to be the last line of defense for King Arthur she is supposed to keep the king safe from magicby using the forbidden magic herself Such a good plan No holes at all Right Guinevere enters into the world of Camelot and starts exploring the city and its people in the most mundane ways possible The dialogue is meh, the chapters go slowly, and I caught myself jumping ahead several times because we were so clearly treading water, waiting for something to happen Then, some things happen I won t spoil anything in the plot because I think most of the enjoyment comes from being surprised, but The Guinevere Deception has some significant tricks Guinevere isn t as milk toast as she seems, Arthur isn t that stupid, Lancelot appears in THE MOST EPIC TWIST as a different take on the character, women support women, some LGBT rep enters as breath of fresh air in this traditional hetero tale, and I just really enjoyed the turn of events The entire time I was reading The Guinevere Deception, I kept saying to myself man, I miss Kiersten White when she gets dark Maybe this is too light for me, and I ll stick with her darker content But I can see the hints of darkness in the set up for book two, and call me intrigued I think White has things up her sleeve Definitely pick this one up if you re a fan of legends, myths, retelling, feminism, LGBT , and good old fashioned plot twist surprises I think this one is worth enjoying if you can get over its own problematically dull beginnings Thank you to Delacorte Press for an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review.Original notes Ahhhh I just received the ARC of this It comes out next week Oh dear Can t wait jolts up awake OH SHIT Kiersten White, queen of retellings, is writing a reimagining of the Arthurian legend and it s coming out this year I received this complimentary ARC from the publisher, courtesy of NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.OMG OMG OMG Arthurian mythology is what I was raised on And by Kiersten White SIGN ME THE HECK UP i am the kind of person where, once i find something i really enjoy, i practically obsess over it and i think my newest obsession is arthurian mythology because, oh my gosh, this story is everything i never knew was missing from my life im pretty sure i saw disneysthe sword in the stonewhen i was a kid but, beyond that, i know absolutely nothing about merlin, king arthur, camelot, or the knights of the round table but this story is making me want to drop everything and read anything about them that i can get my hands on even though i dont know much about the mythology this story is based on, i can tell that KW truly made this story her own these characters and their personalities feel original to her this story and i could really empathise with them and their development throughout i am very excited to continue this series and i cant wait to see where it goes in the meantime, please send all of your king arthur recommendations my way P 4.5 stars
