The Excalibur Curse: Camelot Rising Trilogy, Book 3 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The gripping conclusion to the acclaimed Arthurian fantasy trilogy from New York Times best-selling author Kiersten White finds Guinevere questioning everything - friends and enemies, good and evil, and, most of all, herself.
While journeying north toward the Dark Queen, Guinevere falls into the hands of her enemies. Behind her are Lancelot, trapped on the other side of the magical barrier they created to protect Camelot, and Arthur, who has been led away from his kingdom, chasing after false promises. But the greatest danger isn’t what lies ahead of Guinevere - it’s what’s been buried inside her.
Vowing to unravel the truth of her past with or without Merlin’s help, Guinevere joins forces with the sorceress Morgana and her son, Mordred - and faces the confusing, forbidden feelings she still harbors for him. When Guinevere makes an agonizing discovery about who she is and how she came to be, she finds herself with an impossible choice: fix a terrible crime, or help prevent war.
Guinevere is determined to set things right, whatever the cost. To defeat a rising evil. To remake a kingdom. To undo the mistakes of the past...even if it means destroying herself.
Guinevere has been a changeling, a witch, a queen - but what does it mean to be just a girl?

Guinevere has my heart, like all of it. She desires to do the right thing, and sometimes the way forward is covered in brambles and briar. But always, it's her wish to save the island and it's people. It's ingrained into her make-up. She is the perfectly imperfect character that you're going to adore.
I have to say the twist of Lancelot's gender was vastly intriguing. It made for a lot of whats ifs and what could bes. And it's my belief that this spectacular author created a version that is easy to champion.
Arthur has my heart as well. Who doesn't want him to have his queen's heart? He was just a boy trying to rule a kingdom when so much was against him. And having a magical influence that had unsavory intentions was never going to serve him well.
There was so much to cheer for in this unputdownable trilogy. I can't wait to go back and experience it all again. Kiersten White is mesmerizing and so very gifted. She's heading the tippy top of my favorite authors.
The enduring heartbreaking tragedy of the original tale centers on a woman who loved two men and the consequences of her actions.
I applaud the positive message for teens, but the book is too far fetched.
That being said, this final installment didn't quite hit the mark for me. It felt different from the previous two books, and left me feeling a little unsatisfied at its conclusion.
For better or for worse, I felt like a lot of the things that the previous books had been leading up to either fell short or were pushed to the side never to be heard from again. While I enjoyed finally learning about Guinevere's past, even that was not enough to save it for me.
Fina was a great new character addition, but even she couldn't get this book to where it needed to be. And, as I should have known, my dear Mordred didn't get the arc he deserved either.
I felt as if all of the growth and girl-power strength Guinevere showed in the first two books disappeared in favor of a girl I didn't recognize, let alone want to cheer on. But, it wasn't all bad, don't get me wrong. I think it's a very interesting take on the Arthurian legend, and it was exciting getting to see it unfold from Guinevere's perspective for a change.
