This saga has truly been a joy to read and I'm sad I've finished it! Definitely my favourite Arthurian retelling. I enjoyed the author's notes at the end of each book detailing the actual legends and what facts she herself has based the story on. It's clear she did a lot of research and with the best intentions, tried to stay true to the legends. In regards to this book, I was happy to see that Mordred was not made out to be an angry, evil villain {such as he was in T.H. White's version}, who in hatred, attempts to destroy Arthur. If Mordred truly existed, I would much prefer to think of him and the events that transpired based on Mary Stewarts portrayal of things. :)
