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.
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.
