Book Review: Twins (The Dragon’s Dove Chronicles) by Kim Iverson Headlee #FridayFeature

510BRseRmbLGenre: Epic Historical Fantasy
Publisher: Pendragon Cove Press
Release Date: July 17, 2017
Pages: 70

My Review:

Twins by Kim Iverson Headless is a stand-alone novella, inspired by her The Dragon’s Dove Chronicles series. It is an exciting new take on the destruction of Camelot like readers have never read before.

The story revolves around Arthur and Gwenevere’s identical twin daughters, Gwenhwyfar and Gwenhwyfac, and their individual journeys after their mother’s sudden passing. One twin is trained in the sword while the other in castle runnings.

When their father, Arthur, High King, announces his first born,  Gwenhwyfar, to be betrothed to Medraut—the man whom Gwenhwyfach secretly loves, the twins plot to switch places. Only things don’t go as planned.

Overall, I enjoyed the story, but found some of the name of characters hard to understand. There is a guide towards the back of the book, which for the ebook, would be more appropriate at the front. By the time I discovered it, I had no interest in looking at any of it. The storyline was intriguing, but I felt it could have been better if it had been expanded into a full fledged novel. I felt some of the characters lacked character development as a result of the book only being 70 pages.

If you like stories about Arthur and the history of Camelot, this is one you will want to check out.
