Publisher's Summary

Now an original series starring Katherine Langford on Netflix!

The Lady of the Lake is the true hero in this cinematic twist on the tale of King Arthur created by Thomas Wheeler and legendary artist, producer, and director Frank Miller (300, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City).

Featuring eight full-color and 30 black-and-white pieces of original artwork by Frank Miller. 

Whosoever wields the Sword of Power shall be the one true King.

But what if the Sword has chosen a queen?

Nimue grew up an outcast. Her connection to dark magic made her something to be feared in her Druid village, and that made her desperate to leave…

That is, until her entire village is slaughtered by Red Paladins, and Nimue’s fate is forever altered. Charged by her dying mother to reunite an ancient sword with a legendary sorcerer, Nimue is now her people’s only hope. Her mission leaves little room for revenge, but the growing power within her can think of little else.

Nimue teams up with a charming mercenary named Arthur and refugee Fey Folk from across England. She wields a sword meant for the one true king, battling paladins and the armies of a corrupt king. She struggles to unite her people, avenge her family, and discover the truth about her destiny.

But perhaps the one thing that can change Destiny itself is found at the edge of a blade.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Fantastic!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and the main character who showed many qualities I admire. The world building was wonderful, and the writer is most accomplished. There's so much detail, it's almost unnerving how easily I can picture it in my head. Katherine's voice is so soothing and relaxing, an absolute perfect choice for this particular story. I very much look forward to the TV adaptation of this!

Cursed Review

Fast paced book I think I would have preferred to have read it instead of listening to it. I couldn't tell when different characters came in. Even when there was an intense part of the book the tone of the narrator didn't change. I really like the story but the narrator was not too engaging. I would suggest people to read this book.

Nearly a waste of time!

The recipe for this book: Take a perfect legend, mix it in a blender. Serve it without salt by a mostly flat narrator. Try to enjoy...

It wasn’t awful

Not my thing, love the mythos, and the story behind this one, but the characters are just insufferable in this to me personally. It starts out strong and then kinda just goes down a few cliched rabbit holes, but it does bring it back at the end. The only character I really liked to be honest was Arthur.

A poor retelling of Arthur folklore

Cirsed lacks any coherent character or story and seems like a mishmash of ideas.
