    " 3 1/2 stars. I really liked everything until the ending. It just didn't play out the way I hoped it would have, which is to say, it was kind of a cop-out. But good book overall. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 7/10/2010

    " Although I knew that Mordred was part of the Arthurian legend, I was never sure exactly who he was. This was excellent historical fiction. "

    " I loved this book.
    It showed how villians turned evil and showed that maybe they were never evil just had to follow the path chosen for them.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melodie | 12/4/2009

    " While it's very inaccurate from the actual tales of Camelot, it's still a pretty good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 9/17/2009

    " This book was a successful journey into one of my favorite book subjects: taking a famous story and looking at it from an evil character or foe who might more or less be misunderstood. Short and sweet, but a little more bittersweet in where it is destined to go. Definitely worth a read. "

    " Not half as good as I expected, from reading Springer's other work - Morgan Le Fay.
    Though it did solidify a few parts of Arthurian legend for me. "
