This novel tels the story of Camelot from the perspective of Mordred, the illegitimate son (and nephew) of King Arthur.

Not a bad take on the legend, although the Mordred narrating the book is a little too emo teen angst for my taste -- I guess when you read a book about Mordred you are kind of asking for emo teen angst, being as how he is the original emo teen! -- and I kind of feel the last ten pages or so are worth the entire rest of the book.

I was very disappointed. I found this book to be hard to get into and boring. I did not read the sequel because I disliked this book so much.

My pre-teen picked it up from the library and I grabbed it, as it sounded good and it was a new author for me! I have enjoyed Arthurian tales in the past. So, I was intrigued. This book is wonderful, quick, the language is beautiful. The story line is compelling and the characters are very much human and belieavable.

WOW! I highly recommend this book to all ages!
