With Morgan le Fey within the court of Camelot, things have turned dark as her magic shadowed the king's keep. But with Arthur, injuries, and near-death, the court is in disarray.
Gwen is blamed for the king's near-death and awaits being sentenced as Morgan carries out her master's plan. Gwen is trapped beneath the castle, and weakened from her injuries and the draining of her magic through iron entrapment, she almost gave up. But freed by Merlin and Lancelot, she must face Morgan le Fey.
To save King Arthur, she must make a choice to relinquish her newfound passion for the king or watch him die. If she saves him, he will forget her and their passions, never to touch her again, but if she does not he will perish. Can she handle a pain that she should never have bore?
If King Arthur turns from her, what would become of her and Camelot, and what of the prophecy? Will she gain the understanding of where it all began? She will seek the truth and learn that this is more than just at the hands of the fae - she will learn how the gods play into it all.
Lancelot and Merlin will seek to help, but might do nothing more than make things difficult. Will Arthur find his passion for Gwen again, or will Lancelot steal her for himself under the nose of his king and friend?
