Publisher's Summary

Although the legend of King Arthur has been told many times, rarely have the villains of the tale been given voices. Here, the treacherous half-sister of Arthur tells the fantastic story of her life, from her tragic childhood to the moment she realizes her fated role in the King's downfall. This is the perfect companion to Nancy Springer's I Am Mordred, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults.

Hypnotic

Readers should be aware that this novel is a companion to Nancy Springer’s award winning I am
Mordred and draws from the Legend of Arthur as inspiration for portraying the villainess of the
legend—Morgan Le Fey. The reader follows young Morgan as she comes into her powers and
determined to refuse the fate that is bestowed upon her, further binds herself to be fate. Readers
follow Morgan’s downward spiral from a fiercely independent girl to a woman who would do
anything to protect what she yearns for. The novel has lyrical prose that is accentuated even
more so with the help of Jenny Sterlin as narrator. One can easily slip into the thrall of the
novel’s medieval, fantasy landscape. Luckily, the magical setting of the novel can make the
material applicable to contemporary teens from the ages of 13 upwards. I would believe that this
tale still holds relevance to readers because of Springer’s ability to make one have empathy for
the famous villainess of the Legend of Arthur, and to sate one’s curiosity for the legend itself.

A beautiful fairy tale with bite

I loved this book. It is beautifully written, the characters are all well developed, and the story is unpredictable (unusual in ''villian back story" novels). The story fills me with nostalgia for my childhood, when I loved hearing stories of knights and princesses and castles... but it adds enough serious, grown-up elements that I think a 13 year old and a 33 year old can both read and enjoy it. love love love this book. Take a risk on this hidden gem!

Gentle side of Morgan

Very intimate telling of Morgan's thoughts, relationships and training as well as the struggles she went through. She is quite likeable in this version. I will try other books by this author.
