Set against the backdrop of myth and legend, history is rewritten by those who did not get to tell their side of the story. Guy of Gisbourne, said to be a notorious villain hounding the good people of Nottingham and Morgaine Avalon, future Duchess of Glastonbury, descendant and namesake of the legendary King Arthur’s half-sister, are drawn together by the mysterious workings of the Faie. Their story is one of love that completes itself as Guy claims his destiny as the Stag King and comes to Avalon’s aid once again.
This love story does not follow the “romance” formula but sets forth a rich perspective on how couples can lovingly and passionately interrelate and cooperatively cope with the challenges set before them. This story illustrates how we can be more compassionate beings with one another and how we can learn to be true to our own nature as well as to each other.
