Meet the Author

When Gerald Morris was in fifth grade he loved Greek and Norse mythology and before long was retelling the stories to his younger sister and then to neighborhood kids. He began carrying a notebook in which he kept some of the details related to the different stories. The joy he found in retelling those myths continued when he discovered other stories. According to Gerald Morris, “I never lost my love of retelling the old stories. When I found Arthurian literature, years later, I knew at once that I wanted to retell those grand tales. So I pulled out my notebook . . . I retell the tales, peopling them with characters that I at least find easier to recognize, and let the magic of the Arthurian tradition go where it will.” Gerald Morris lives in Wausau, Wisconsin, with his wife and their three children. In addition to writing he serves as a minister in a church.

I loved the humor in this book. This isn't the most engaging book Ive read, but its a nice light read. I loaned this book to one of my friends, and for the following week I'd hear a random chuckle and look over to see him engaged in this book. I highly recommend this book for those that enjoy adventure, wit, and a fresh, enjoyable view on some traditional settings.

AMAZING!!!! book. Even if you have never read an Arthurian novel before, you will LOVE THIS BOOK. Luneta, a strong-headed 16 year old girl finds her inner magical power, a family secret and falls in love, ALL ON HER FIRST TRIP TO CAMELOT. This book has a lot of twists and turns in it. THIS IS A MUST READ BOOK.

The Lioness and Her Knight was my favorite in the series. It had some of the old favorites, while incorporating the new gracefully. I loved it. Totally a fan of fools, kind of am one myself:)

It's a great just for fun read, and I really enjoyed it. Rhince the fool is amazing! This is a good medieval book, but has slightly modern humor. Entertaining, funny, it's a great book.

the cover my be deceiving, but this book is great. It is one of those books where you can't put it down. The main character, Luneta, is strong willed and fun to read about. Read this book, i beg you!
