The only book, that I have read so far, that I have read for, I think, 5 times already... and now I'm planning to read it again!
Another beautiful young adult Arthurian novel with great language and emotion. This is comparable to Rosemary's Sutclif's young adult Arthur stories. The basic legends are retold here with many of the favorite characters. Morgan and Mordred are the king's chief enemies in this version. The less-told tale of Balin and Balan is here also. Most lovers of the legend might enjoy it, and, with only 153 pages, it makes a nice weekend read.

I look forward to reading the author's many other works.
