really liked it
bookshelves: own, fantasy, anthology
Read in December, 2008

The King Arthur legend told from the perspective of the women, ie. Morgaine (Morgan Le Fay) and Gwenhwyfar (Guinevere).

The perspective was unique and intriguing, which makes such a timeworn tale to be interesting, and the female characters are rich and compelling. Ironically, Arthur is fairly annoying, and I wanted to shake him most of the time. The narrative does drag in places. It is after all, close to 900 pages, and I would hesitate to recommend this to strongly Christians readers since the religious commentary is harsh at times.
