“If you want scandal, lust, and feeling the pain of love, this is your book. I think anyone who enjoys a good romance, legend, or medieval story will enjoy this novel.”
“I don’t know what I can say about this book except declare my undying love for it! I had high expectations when starting this book and I wasn’t disappointed! It can be read as a stand alone novel as part of the trilogy and if I were you I would read the first before reading this because you will learn to love the characters and the story and by the time you are finished you will be dying to read this book.”
““I stayed up to the wee hours of the morning tearing through the pages. It got to the point that I became so captivated with the story I had to force myself to stop reading so I could eat. Lavinia Collins is a gifted writer whose genre of female centered storytelling perfectly balances the line between myth, fantasy and history.”

“As always, Lavinia Collins doesn’t disappoint. This first book sees Morgan grow from an innocent child to a young woman who discovers betrayal, the cruelty of a men’s world, and sex.
Once again, Collins has created complex, intriguing characters, and a vivid world that makes you forget the Arthurian legends are just that, legends. They seem real. It’s also refreshing to see them told, for a change, by the female protagonists who are often relegated to one-dimensional characters in the background. Here, Morgan comes forward to tell her own story. And it’s a very compelling one.
If you like the Arthurian legends, or even just a good story, check it out.”

THE EMPTY THRONE tells the previously untold story of Queen Morgawse.
A gripping new take on a secret treasure of medieval romance hidden in Arthurian legend
Old King Uther is dying. Morgawse’s greedy and ambitious husband Lot plans to take over and seize the crown. But a strange young boy is found claiming to be the rightful heir to the throne. Overwhelmed with anger, Lot sends Morgawse to the court at Camelot to spy on young Arthur.
As Morgawse gets more and more involved with Arthur she doesn’t realise the dangerous path she is treading.
Morgawse enjoys herself in the elaborate banquets in the great hall, the music and the dancing, and her new found freedom. She hates the old King Uther, but she is glad at the brief opportunity to get away from her capricious husband. A relationship with Arthur quickly develops, despite the risks. Morgawse senses a chance at a better life in Camelot. But the thought of her sons back in Lothian Castle troubles her. And then her mother Igraine arrives in Camelot with some deeply shocking news.
Whilst young King Arthur must prove himself if he is to defend his kingdom and secure lasting peace in the realm, Morgawse must stay strong and defiant .

“a mix of romance and legend along with rich descriptions, I was sucked in by the end of the first chapter.”
“Collins skillfully intertwines legends and magic with historical realism. The world she creates is, obviously, fictional, and yet it feels very real and vivid. It’s full of witches, intrigues, plots, knights, conquerors, love, and quite a bit of sex too! It’s just got everything that a great story should have.”
