Ruins of Camelot


G. Norman Lippert



Ruins of Camelot is an original novel by G. Norman Lippert that takes place in the same universe as the James Potter series. It centers around Gabriella Xavier, a princess in the Medieval ages, during the fictional reign of her father, King Xavier.

The story was released in 2011, and unlike the James Potter stories, is available on sale at all booksellers.

Book Description

"In a time of wizards, vampires, and werewolves, she dared to be the most amazing thing of all... herself."

As the kingdom of Camelot descends into complacency, an ambitiously sadistic madman known as Merodach advances his rogue armies, recruiting by the sword and threatening revolt. 18-year-old Princess Gabriella is the only one who understands the severity of the threat, but is powerless to convince her father or her brave commoner husband, Darrick. With defeat all but certain, Gabriella sets out on a final, seperate quest. Her plan: to confront and defeat the madman Merodach before his armies can destroy everything she loves. Alone and on foot, she must cross the haunted magical wasteland known as the Tempest Barrens, where she is beset by mutant beasts, capricous magical creatures, and even the walking dead. In the end, wounded and hopeless, Gabriella finally confronts her nemesis and learns his final horrible secret: he is not not alone, and the forces he has allied with are far more powerful than anyone could have ever imagined.

Connection to James Potter

Like the James and Harry Potter stories alike, the story is set in a fictional world where magical and non-magical people co-exist, but in a time where the non-magical people are aware of the of their magical counterparts. This time period is referenced several times throughout the James Potter series.

"Merlin's Gift," one of the holiday-themed stories in the Harry's First Christmas collection, mentions a young girl named Gabriella, who is said to have a descendent (a "Potter") who will save a lot of people. This is meant to refer to the idea that she is one of James's ancestors.

In James Potter and the Morrigan Web, she is one of the people seen in the Mirror of Erised by James and his father, who says how she likes the name "James." At the end of Ruins of Camelot, it's revealed that this is the name she gave to her child.
