Lady Nimue enters King Arthur’s court under false pretenses. An agent of Morgan, Arthur’s half sister, she is sent to corrupt Merlin, to prevent him from counseling the king. She cannot allow herself to fail. Morgan holds her sisters as collateral. But she also has the Sight and Merlin, fearing for his life, has ordered her death.

Who hasn’t heard of Merlin? In this original twist of the Arthurian legend, he’s driven by the Iselin Dal, voices that are at the heart of his power. The Voices show him the creations, which he in turn builds. The Voices demand that he cannot have intercourse with any woman unless he wishes to be driven insane. Lady Nimue is a hard temptation to resist.

Camelot is in danger, but the tool Merlin would use to save them will also be their undoing. Only Nimue can stop him.

Kim Knox doesn’t disappoint in this beautifully crafted novella. This is an author to keep your eye on. Artfully drawn and complex characters, a plot that keeps you guessing to the very end, and a sweet sex scene reminiscent of Nora Roberts' style, lend a timeless quality to Nimue’s Price. You definitely want to add this to your collection.
