Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Ostensibly the old-age memoirs of King Arthur's half-sister, this slim volume, chronicling Arthur's origins, reign and downfall, breaks no new ground and preserves the Malory depiction of the narrator as an evil manipulator. In a Britain gradually shifting from Druidic paganism to Christianity, Morgain seeks to destroy Arthur because he will not share power with her. Morgain comes across as a willful and rather petulant aristocrat who suffers when her attempts to avenge the rape of her mother and destruction of her father cause a young woman's death. Morgain recounts her life and attachments, including Merlin, her first love, and those whom she uses in her plots. She seduces a drunken Arthur, secretly bearing Mordred, the destroyer, and is banished from court, here Cadbury Castle, for lasciviousness, in particular for her dalliance with Guinevere's brother. Morgain's consistent erotic interests, while not overly explicit, will preclude this tale from children's lists.

From Library Journal

The rise and fall of Arthur Pendragon takes on a very different mood when seen through the eyes of his half sister Morgain. Here, Robin concentrates on the complex personality of one of Arthurian legend's most maligned "villains." Torn between her love for her murdered father and her loyalty to her half brother, Morgain descends gradually into madness-and the sorceress of legend emerges full-blown. Morgain has long needed an apologia, and the author has provided her with a serviceable one. A good secondary purchase.

Format: Hardcover
Short book, if you are a fan of Morgaine you will enjoy this short and not too deep story, from her perspective. Easy reading with some interesting insights
