At first this volume was jarring because I was so used to Merlin's first-person voice, and the narrative moved to third-person omniscient with a focus on Mordred's POV. I don't know of many interpretations that cast Mordred as a sympathetic character; this one was feasible and still contained the major elements for which Mordred is known. It had the inexorable feeling of a tragedy in which no one is in control of their fate--depressing, but a good read nonetheless.
