White Wolf of Avalon: Werewolf Knight is the story of the secret society of lycans that reside in ancient Britain. Bledig, an orphan raised by a childless couple near the magical Isle of Avalon dreams of someday becoming a knight of the Round Table. Bledig refuses to become a beast and wants no part in marrying a wolf maiden and begetting lycan children. Annora, a Romano Greco wolf maiden, is more interested in intellectual pursuits than romantic ones. She is a scribe and historian who prefers to marry an older alpha lycan who might better understand her need to focus on her writings. As Annora travels up north to meet with her brother and family, they are attacked by Gorlagon's she-lycan, Trivia, and her pack of warrior lycans. In the wilderness, Annora and Bledig meet. She is the beautiful woman he has dreamt of nightly while heading to retrieve his brother s moonstone. He, the knight in shining armor she had fantasized about, brave, handsome and chivalrous. Their attraction is instantaneous. She is stunned to learn he is a lycan, the white wolf destined to unite all the lycans of Britain. Her mate. Danger lurks everywhere. Gorlagon and Gargol have not given up on their hunt to find Annora and the Pict wolfen she released from his dank dungeons. But most of all they wish to use her as a breeder. Intrigue and secrecy abound in King Arthur's court at Camulod. Mordred, Arthur's son by his own sister, Morgause, plots to rule. He has become Gorlagon's secret Lupercii in the hopes of having a lycan army to defeat his father in battle. Will Bledig reject his true destiny as the prophesized lycan leader of Britain, and most importantly, can he deny his feelings for the lovely wolf maiden, Annora, who has already captured his heart and soul? Can Annora survive the lycans who hunt her? Will Bledig finally submit to his lycan nature and forever claim her as his wolf maiden? Will magic save their kind, the fae of Avalon and King Arthur's Britain?

Bledig is born an alpha lycan that is prophesied to lead the entire lycan pack of Britain to victory but Bledig doesn't want to do anything about it. 

White Wolf of Avalon is the third book of the Wolf Maiden Chronicles. Bledig the Iron Fist is King Arthur's greatest knight. Bledig was raised with humans and his only dream as a boy growing up was to becomes a knight of the round table together with King Arthur. But one day, Bledig discovers that not only is he a Lycan, but an alpha wolf that would unite all the wolf pack in Britain. Refusing his destiny, Bledig became a knight of the round table and lived his life as human but one day his destiny will be altered after seeing Annora who he later learns is his wolf maiden or life mate. From then on, Bledig's never remains the same. It is a battle of survival, supremacy and love.

I loved how the story started and ended. It was an amazing read from chapter one to the last page of the book. White Wolf of Avalon was written with both Gordon's vivid imagination, mythology and the fictitious life of King Arthur and his knights. I love how all the elements blend well together and Gordon did an exceptional job at telling us the story of Bledig and his human and Lycan friends. The battle scenes were amazing. I especially liked how Annora's character developed throughout the story. The conflict, intrigues and revelation was well timed making the novel more enjoyable to read. There was not a dull moment in the book. I love how Gordon wrote this novel equally. Not to much action, not too mushy with romance. 

I would recommend this novel to werewolf fans, readers who love romance accompanied by great fights and conflict, people who love mythology and ancient times, and anybody who needs a good book to read. Caution to parents and young readers because the book contains sex and a lot of violence.
