The Book of Mordred is told from the point of view of three different women (Alayna, Kiera, Nimue), all of them having a certain connection to Mordred – who seems to be more of a supporting character rather than the “main” man of the book.
Arthur fans may be disappointed by the representation of some of the traditional legendary characters. Lancelot is not a hero, and Mordred is simply a misunderstood, strong, charismatic, and likeable old fellow. The story is action-packed, with a substantial amount of sorcery, and deaths that include some graphic and disturbing descriptions of violence. Not a bad read, just far from my favorite.
