    In the tradition of T.H. White's The Once and Future King, the author makes use of the prerequisites of the Arthurian legend: Excalibur, the Holy Grail, Lancelet's illicit love for Gwenhwyfar, the destruction of Camelot, but with a twist - she presents the entire panoramic story from the female point of view.

    leslie says: "Excellent Narration-Frustrating Hatchet Job"
    "Not your average Merlin"
    Overall

    The start of the Authur legend told from his mothers point of view...interesting mix of cultures and religions. A good story, I listened to it as an Audio Book and the female narrator did a really good job.

    This tale was a first listen to see if I would like the series. I think the writing is good, but would have to read it as a written piece. The audio book was a bit long, but it was very good from a plot and narration view point. There was a depth of detail and cultural back story which made the story enjoyable, and with the slight twists on characters...like "the Merlin" and "the Lady".

    The story is a lot closer to reality than most I have read.... definitly not a "Disneyfied" version of the story. The island of England at a cross roads and the influance of the women who mored it forward to what we know today.
