    After being set adrift at sea, baby Mordred is found by fisherfolk who raise him as their own. One day, a beautiful, magical lady appears to carry him back to his birth-mother's cold castle. There, alone but for his faithful dog, he comes of age and learns the horrible truth about his identity. Everyone knows Mordred as the dark, evil son who kills the noble King Arthur. But what would it be like to be born as Mordred, an unwanted child with a dreadful destiny?

    What did you like best about I Am Mordred? What did you like least?

    The first-person perspective is what interested me most with this book. It was refreshing to hear a story where Mordred is not unilaterally dark and evil. Here, he's depicted as not only a victim of fate, but also of manipulation. Mordred needs to decide who to trust as he branches out into the world. The character's torment along his path through life was believable. I just couldn't get completely involved/attached to any of the characters, which is a requirement for me to really like a book.


    What could Nancy Springer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Throughout the book, Mordred evaluated his and other characters' thoughts and actions and weighed them against his moral code/belief system. He questioned things a lot. Towards the end, that complexity seemed to wither away.


    Could you see I Am Mordred being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not really.
