I am so thrilled to announce that my newly revised and updated Shalott trilogy is finally available to introduce a whole new generation of teenagers to the timeless legend of King Arthur and the popular and wonderfully mysterious poem, The Lady of Shalott, by Alfred Lord Tennyson. In #1 Shalott: Into the Unknown, five Australian teenagers set out into the unknown to rescue the doomed ‘Lady of Shalott’ and to save Camelot. Instead, they find themselves caught up in the illicit love affair between Guinevere and Lancelot, the intrigues of the court, and the ambition of the magical Morgan le Fay. Will they find the courage to survive fire and plague and be able to find their way home? What Callie finds in Camelot will break her heart, while all of their lives will be changed forever. #2 Shalott: Dangerous Magic poses the questions: Is Lev still in Camelot – or did he die in the fire? Can El survive the plague? And can Callie undo a death – or will she cause another? As Callie vies with Guinevere to win Lancelot’s love, and the Old Ways clash with the New, the ambitious Morgan le Fay weaves her dangerous magic. When the teenagers are caught in the crossfire, death awaits them all. #3 Shalott: End Play asks: Will Callie have the courage to face her true quest – and can she trust the treacherous Morgan le Fay to help her? Cast adrift from all she knows, Callie needs to find a way to save herself before she can rescue her sister and friends from the last deadly battle between King Arthur and his son, Mordred. As past and present collide, can Callie find a way forward, when everything she ever wanted seems lost?
I’ve loved revisiting the world of King Arthur and Camelot, and I hope those of you who read these novels will love them too!
