Sunrise of Avalon Review & Giveaway

The trilling conclusion to Anna Elliott's magical Twilight of Avalon trilogy, Sunrise of Avalon: A Novel of Trystan & Isolde (Touchstone Books/ Simon & Schuster Trade Paperback) will be released on September 13, 2011.

In the first in the trilogy, Twilight of Avalon (May 2009), Queen Isolde is grieving her slain husband and trying to protect both her throne and Britain, when she encounters a prisoner in her castle--Trystan. He soon becomes one of her few allies and helps Isolde escape Lord Marche--the man who murdered her husband. Then in Dark Moon of Avalon (2010), the young companions Trystan and Isolde embark on a dangerous quest to rally support for King Madoc and prevent the tyrannical Lord Marche from usurping the British throne. The romantic tension builds until finally Trystan and Isolde recognize their love for each other and take a secret marriage vow. Sunrise of Avalon continues where the others left off.

Here is the synopsis of Sunrise of Avalon from the back cover:
There love has overcome endless obstacles. Never ones to shy away from danger, former High Queen Isolde and Trystan, a mercenary with a lonely and troubled past, have already endured a perilous journey to keep the underhanded Lord Marche from the throne of Britain. But now a new traitor lurks amongst the kings of Britain's High Council--and just when they've realized the depth of their love for each other, a new danger calls Trystan from Isolde's side to test the strength of their secret marriage vows. Only Isolde knows she is carrying Trystan's unborn child.
As Britain's armies prepare for a final battle in with they will either turn back the tide of the invaders or see their kingdom utterly destroyed, Isolde must undertake yet another daring mission--one that will bring her even nearer to a secret that Trystan has kept for seven long years. As the clouds of war gather, Trystan and Isolde must once again fight to protect Britain's throne. Together, they hold the key that can defeat the Saxon king, Octa of Kent, and Lord Marche. But the cost of Britain's sovereignty may be their own forbidden love.
Based on the earliest written version of the Arthurian tales, Anna Elliot's Sunrise of Avalon breathes new life into an age-old legend and brings the story of Trystan and Isolde to an unforgettable end.

I enjoyed reading, Sunrise of Avalon. I do wish I had read the first two books in the trilogy first though. I am planning on going back and reading the trilogy from start to finish. 

If you enjoy historical fictional with romance mixed in, Sunrise of Avalon and the entire Twilight of Avalon trilogy would be a perfect read for you!

The basic plot and story are the same of other books, but based on the setting and time period from which the story takes place makes me want to read it.
