Sword of the Rightful King

Though a shadow of Mallory’s La Morte D’Arthur is present, Ms. Yolen delivers a distinctively unique and refreshing interpretation of the classic tale. Focusing on only a season of Arthur’s reign when the Knights of the Round Table were just forming, Arthur shares the limelight with Gawain, Agravaine, Merlin, wicked Morgause, and a boy who remains a clever mystery until the end.

There is a smattering of violent acts, but no lengthy descriptions or battle scenes, and a few swear words (tended to be used in conjunction with Morgause).

With its alluring characters and sharp storytelling, Sword of the Rightful King is a noble read that will likely please old and new Camelot fans alike.
