Publisher Comments:

Her castle under siege by an evil knight who keeps beheading all her would-be rescuers, Lady Lynet sets out for help and finds assistance from an odd dwarf named Roger and a scruffy kitchen hand named Beaumains.

As the three unlikely companions return to Lynets castle, they face surprising adventures, including encounters with the uncanny Squire Terence, his master, Sir Gawain, and the majestic sorceress Morgan. And somewhere along the way, Lynet discovers that people can be much more than they seem.

About the Author

Gerald Morris lives in Wausau, Wisconsin, with his wife and three children. In addition to writing he also serves as pastor of a church and teaches theology. As a child, Morris read voraciously, but mostly bad Western novels. Years later, when he discovered the ancient tales of King Arthur and realized what a good thing he had been missing all those years, he decided to retell those stories for the next generation.

Davey929, April 13, 2008 (view all comments by Davey929)
This book is a funny, sweet, endearing adaptation of an obscure Arthurian myth. Gerald Morris' books are typically centered on men, so this is a refreshing, feminist novel that appeals to any age group. Lynet is a sharply funny, well-developed character who goes out and gets things done, a rarity in women of her time. The magic in this book also hooked me; I always appreciate theories on other worlds and powers beyond what we can see.

My favorite parts of Morris’ books are his afterwords. He explains the legend that he took his ideas from, the previous writing styles, and how the tale developed under his hands and those who wrote before him. It is always an interesting piece of literary history.
