    This is the Arthurian legend from the fresh perspective of the Lady of the Lake and a 17 year old dwarf named Twixt Chapters alternate between the first person narratives of the two Damosel provides the magical perspective in a world that is rapidly losing its magic and Twixt provides 1st person perspective from Arthur's court where he resides as court jester Set in 6th century Britain this retains the historical elements of the Arthurian legend as well as keeping it magical I loved it and really appreciated it after having just read Here Lies Arthur by Phillip Reeve which explained away the magic all too thoroughly My Arthurian soul feels once again restored as I wait for the return of the Once and Future King from the isle of Avalon

    Honestly if this book hadn't been so short I would have stopped reading it after the first twenty pages or so Though I didn't it took me a lot longer than it should have to read it possibly because it was simply uninteresting It tells the story of King Arthur from the point of view of the Lady of the Lake and a dwarf Seems like a fine premise to me Unfortunately it does this in an incredibly boring wayThe Lady of the Lake spends most of her time away from court so she only learns about events later The dwarf's parts are a bit better but then only a bit I think a major flaw is that there is nothing new that we learn about the story at all Everything that occurs is exactly what happens in the general Arthur story and at this point if you're going to tell Arthur again you need to do something differentBesides this the diction is sometimes very informal or strange to the point that it feels almost like a gimmick The Lady freuently refers to rules that ladies of lakes have to follow which is fine Magic can have rules But the rules are so bizarre such as the rule of two and a half where she has to follow the reuest of two and a half people no matter what it is that they don't seem uirky as I think the point of them was and just seem stupidFinally the villains were not fleshed out at all In the Arthurian saga this is one really easy thing to do to make the villains interesting This didn't happen We're told that Morgause and Morgan hate Arthur but we're never told why Then Mordred hates Arthur too simply because his mother told him to All this might work since the book is geared to a slightly younger YA audience or at least felt that way but it's all completely undermined at the end when Morgan suddenly has a change of heart becomes remorseful and brings Arthur to Avalon While in general I love Morgan's redemption it was done so poorly here that even I didn't like it There was no apparent reason for her sudden switch to the good side of things and even the Lady says that it doesn't appear she's really changed at allPotentially good if somewhat cliché premise; horribly executed

    This book was a retelling of the King Arthur story but focused on the Lady of the Lake named Damosel in this book and a dwarf named Twixt The book in general was interesting but it might not be a book that I would read again The language of the book made sense for the most part but it was also a bit informal which made it kind of peculiar for the story I think the switching off between Damosel's and Twixt's points of view made the book interesting and it reminded me of the book Wonder however even this was not done very smoothly and they did not work together very well Damosel is a water spirit who has a magical perspective in a place where magic is running out uickly and Twixt has a perspective from King Arthur's court There was not much of a character journey because all of the events would happen in court while Damosel would mostly be away from court and would have the messages relayed to her or Twixt would say things that he say but was not a part of She makes the Excalibur for Arthur and later gets invited to Arthur's wedding She sends Nimue instead because she is not a very social person Nimue ends up finding Merlin and wants his magic and power so she traps Merlin in a cave using magic that he taught her Then Damosel promises to Merlin to watch over Arthur but she falls in love with a heartbroken knight and forgets about what she said before What happens later is the plot of the book

    In the times of King Arthur this story gives a different track of the Lady of the Lake Damosel Damosel is asked by Merlin to make a sword to protect young King Arthur Damosel agrees to do this and takes nine years to make the perfect sword Excaliber Damosel does make the sword a beautiful sword but does not keep her promise to Merlin to protect Arthur Damosel meets a knight and falls in love and her mind and her spells concentrate on this young knight but he soon dies

    Started this earlier this month but I had to put it down because it was boring and I was in the middle of another book another series that I just couldn’t drag myself away fromI wanted to like this but it just wasn’t capturing me I liked the beginning when Damosel was making Excalibur and the end when she went to Arthur as he was ailing but in between was not very interestingWon’t be holding onto this unfortunately

    35 starsI liked parts of this The writing was very nice and I like Damosel's voice and character I didn't like Twixt I mean he was fine But I still have no idea why he was a narrator in this story He is not a Lady of the LakeStill a uniue version of King Arthur which actually stays true to the stories
