It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.

My name is Greer Galloway, and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States.

This is the story of an American Queen.

I’ve been many things.

I’ve been a son and a stepbrother. An Army captain and a Vice President.

But only with Him am I a prince. His little prince.

Only with Maxen and Greer does my world make sense, only between them can I find peace from the demons that haunt me. But men like me aren’t made to be happy. We don’t deserve it. And I should have known a love as sharp as ours could cut both ways.

My name is Embry Moore and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States…for now.

This is the story of an American Prince.

They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth. And here I am. My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal. And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.

I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return. I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.
And I will survive this.

Long live the king.

The New Camelot Trilogy is hot, it’s filled with intrigue, taboo, politics and suspense, and it’s not certain that all the players will still be there in the end…

Story:

The New Camelot Trilogy is my Can You Read a Series in a Month Challenge – and I totally nailed it. As soon as I started reading, I was drawn in – to the mystery, the steam, the friendships, and the war. The main characters were introduced in a great way, and I felt a connection to them even if they were all very different from me.

There is a political intrigue going on, but there’s also something that appears to be slightly supernatural happening. Especially because both Greer and Maxen have this feeling of deja vu more than once. And as you can probably get from the title The New Camelot Trilogy has something to do with an old tale of a king.

I loved how Simone was able to weave the tales of Arthur into her New Camelot series, because it’s a tale I’ve studied quite a bit during my years at University. And the way she brought this to a modern time, including Merlin made things seem a little less contemporary at times, and I enjoyed that!

Characters:

Greer Galloway is young at the beginning of the trilogy, but she is still seen as a political princess. She’s the granddaughter of a former vice president, and she is extremely good at reading people.

Embry has so many different parts of his personality it was a bit difficult to get to know him. Keeping himself slightly apart, he was the character who intrigued me the most in The New Camelot series.

Maxen is the president – in the present. He is also an adopted child who didn’t know his parents, an army captain, and mostly a decent human being.

Merlin wields a lot of power, and he doesn’t always appear to use that power for good!

Writing style :

Each book follows one of the main characters, and the narration flows very easily.

Feels :

In the first book of the New Camelot series, I felt so much excitement, and also quite a bit of hot! But there was more than that – the suspense was well done, and I enjoyed understanding some things thangs to my knowledge of Arthurian legends.

  1. You just got me excited for this trilogy. I would totally start reading it right now if I had the books. I’ll definitely gonna look into buying the first book soon I think. And I love that it’s a retelling of the tale of King Arthur. Also gives it that something extra.

  2. I’ve heard such good things about this series and Sierra Simone. It sounds very out of my comfort zone, but I want to give them a try since it’s so beloved. It definitely sounds very hot. I didn’t realize this had some suspense threads to it as well.
    Glad you enjoyed it, Lexxie!

  3. This cover looks hot! Great review thanks for sharing, although I do not read this genre, I love the cover and you write an awesome review!
