Thank you LitPR for an invite on the blog tour for Guinevere: The Dragon Ring by Fil Reid and for sending me a free copy of the book. I could not read this book quick enough I thoroughly enjoyed going back to the Dark Ages and Legend of King Arthur, I have always had a soft spot for Arthurian tales. I enjoyed seeing through the eyes of a modern-day woman in the dark ages.
Guinevere: The Dragon Ring by Fil Reid
Title: Guinevere: The Dragon Ring
Author: Fil Reid
Genre: Historical, Fiction and a little Sci-fi
The present day – 24-year-old librarian Gwen goes to scatter her father’s ashes on Glastonbury Tor and is kidnapped back in time to become King Arthur’s Dark Age queen – Guinevere. Welcome to book 1 in the exciting new series Guinevere from Dragonblade Publishing author Fil Reid! Gwen, a twenty-four-year-old librarian, lives with her boyfriend, Nathan, in a small house, with all the accoutrements of modern living any girl could ask for. When her father dies, and with her ne’er-do-well twin brother on the other side of the world, it’s left to Gwen to fulfil her father’s wishes and scatter his ashes on the top of Glastonbury Tor in Somerset, England. Stepping into the ruined church tower, a gold ring catches her eye – a ring embossed with a dragon emblem. When Gwen picks it up, she’s snatched into the dangerous world of the Dark Ages, where she discovers she’s expected to fulfil a prophecy, by marrying Prince Arthur and helping him become the king of legend. Will she stay with Arthur? (GoodReads Link)
Author Bio: Fil Reid lives on a canal boat with her husband, her rescue dog from Romania and an elderly cat who thinks Fil can type while the cat is resting her chin on her hand. She can't. Her poor husband mostly sees the back of her head as she sits at the computer writing. When she's not writing (which is pretty much all of the time) she likes to walk the dog, visit sites of historical interest (preferably those connected to her writing), read, and sew. She has Asperger's Syndrome, but she sees that as a plus as it helps her to be very focused on what she does. Unfortunately, she also has Menière's Disease which gives her random bad attacks of vertigo, and that DOES affect her writing. One day she's going to write a book about an Asperger's sufferer with vertigo solving the Canal Killer's murders.
