When shall I be dead and rid
Of the wrong my father did?
How long, how long, till spade and hearse
Put to sleep my mother's curse?

I read the last paragraphs today, and felt a relief when it was over. It was really a strenuous read... I have no idea why, because I enjoyed the first book. Maybe the dark characters introduced in this story and the emphasis on them rather than on Arthur himself. The questing beast and king Pellinore were still a joy to read about, though. The horrid conclusion to this book does not help the case for the next books, although the author does its best in making us understand why it must be so..

I hate to say it, but the third book is even harder to get through...
