Cheryl Carpinello has finished book three in the Guinevere series, Guinevere: The Legend, book 3. It is quite a suspense thriller and is sure to engage reluctant readers. It is published by Silver Quill Publishing in print and eBook formats. Now Guinevere is fifteen, and Cedwyn is eleven. Renegades find children near the castle (even though some have fathers who are knights for Sir Arthur). Guinevere, realizing she will raise the wrath of her father King Leodegrance, sneaks out of the castle at night on foot to follow the trail. Cedwyn must endure being kicked and hit by Ulf of the renegades as he tries to protect the children. He, too, could become a slave when they reach Gaul. But because Guinevere was recognized along the way, Merlyn is again able to follow her. Between Merlyn and the Goddess, the day is saved after several harrowing events. I admit to being a little too involved and worrying about the children while reading.
“I am a retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long past. Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and Medieval Worlds. Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those young-at-heart to read more through my Quest Books set in these worlds.”
Also please visit her other sites: Carpinello’s Writing Pages where I interview Childrens/Tween/MG/YA authors; and The Quest Books where I’ve teamed up with Fiona Ingram from South Africa and Wendy Leighton-Porter of Abu Dhabi to enable readers to find our Ancient and Medieval quest books in one place.
