This was my first read from this author and the sometimes scrawny development of the sub-cast is countered by a very composed development of the object of the story: Lackey’s Gwenhwyfar. I “read” this via audio book, but I got roped in by mid-book as the story gains momentum and found myself extending my road trips just to get through the various subsections.
I felt the book was slow in some parts especially early on, the last 100 pages were intense and flew by. It was the most enjoyable part of reading the book. I was glad that I came away really liking the latter part although it was tragic as this tale always is, because I have the hard cover version and it is a beautiful cover - making it a book I wanted to have on my shelf!
If you love this legend and this era, you should read this book. If you are just looking for a great read in general, perhaps not.
In general I have never been the type to like books about horses, military strategy and the like, and yet somehow I ADORED this book and couldn't put it down. I guess it was because the characters were so true to life and real and then there was all the exciting magic of the King Arthur Story as told from yet another female character's perspective.
Don't expect to like Arthur in this book. When it comes to dealing with women his character in this book was even less appealing than in Zimmer Bradley's work.
