Recommended for: those who love the legend of King Arthur
Read in July, 2007

This book was definitely a big twist on the usual Arthur tale. I don't want to throw out too many spoilers...but this was the most different telling of the legend I've ever read.

I liked the different in some ways. It was great to see Guenevere portrayed as someone other than a whimpering weak woman who destroys Arthur in the end.

On the other hand, this was the first time I'd ever read the tale with the perspective that Arthur was far less than perfect. In fact, he was QUITE flawed in this version.

It makes for an interesting read if you're really into the legend - a different perspective than what the traditional view presents.
