Weekend Writing Warriors: WHITE HART #7

Hello fellow warriors! What do you think? Should Gawain give peace a chance?

“I am Gawain of Orkney” Gawain said suddenly. He wasn't sure if it was a challenge or a confession.
“I know.” Arthur looked up. “That doesn't have to make us enemies. I wouldn't have asked you here if I didn't want us to be allies. Not wary strangers hoping we don't end up with a knife in our backs. Trusted allies. Friends. There has been enough bloodshed in Britain, Gawain. I mean to bring her peace but you can't have peace without trust.”

Don't forget to check out the rest of the snippets here!

And if you want to read more about Gawain's adventures only two weeks left until WHITE HART is released. August first!

Gawain of Orkney has not been to Camelot since before his father led a rebellion against King Arthur. Now that the war is over Gawain is sent to attend Arthur's wedding.

The night of the wedding Arthur bids Gawain to hunt a white hart -- a beautiful deer of unearthly purity. Gawain accepts the quest but the dangers of the wilderness become hard to battle when he is bound by Arthur's new ideals. Gawain realizes he may not be so different from the knights of the old, violent ways of as he had imagined.

Gawain does not have long to decide which life he wants to chase. Not all the rebels put down their swords when his father did. The knights of the old ways are planning an assassination and even King Arthur may not survive his own idealistic trust.
