One minute ad exec Julie Gaffney is in a medieval theme restaurant, the next shes in the middle of an enchanted castle in legendary Camelot.

Julie handles her time travel amazingly well, but her meeting with the handsome Sir Lancelot leaves much to be desired. When Julie tries to warn him about the havoc his infatuation for Guinevere will cause, he is insulted, thinking she is an enemy sent to destroy him and King Arthur or an enchantress set on tormenting him.

Julies warnings come too late as the evil Malvern shatters the Kings faith in Lancelot. Suddenly, Lancelot, Julie and Malvern find themselves back in the future where the legend of Camelot has changed, with Julie in the lead role of evil enchantress who seduces Lancelot into betraying Arthur while the heroic Malvern dies protecting the King!

When Lancelot starts rapidly aging, he and Julie become desperate for a solution. With help from a modern age Merlin, the lovers find a way to save Camelot and stop the evil Malvern.

Ms. OBrien mixes a little Hollywood, a little Disney and little literature into the cauldron of this Arthurian legend to create a magical adventure that frolics through Medieval Camelot and the streets of New York. Dont miss the fun. (Nov., 340 pp., $5.99)
