Review by: Sharon E. Cathcart on Dec. 9, 2011 :
Another of Anna Elliott's Avalon short stories, "The Witch Queen's Secret" is a different perspective on the tale of Tristan and Isolde.

In this book, Dera finds herself helping Isolde as a healer ... and learns some things about the Cornish queen that she did not know.

Elliott's naming conventions had me confused at one point, but once I caught on I was able to apply my knowledge of Arthurian legend to "get" who the characters were and how they fit together.

An entertaining read read for Arthurians.

Review by: Sarah (Workaday Reads) on July 25, 2011 :
Dera is a former army harlot who takes refuge with Queen Isolde at Dinas Emrys. When they uncover a dangerous plot, Dera risks everything to help save the queen and her fortress.

I didn't realize that this is set between the first and second books in the Twilight of Avalon series. It is meant to be a stand alone novella about Dera, one of the secondary characters from the series. I found myself a bit lost in the beginning, trying to understand the situation, but this quickly took the backseat to the story.

This is a fast-paced action story about Dera's adventure. It is a bit simplistic, but entertaining. It makes me want to read the whole series, which is a great accomplishment for an accompanying story.
