In this new telling of the legend of King Arthur, Reeve presents the story of a girl named Gwynna, who is saved by Myrddin the bard, after her village is destroyed. In the course of their travels, Myrddin, who serves the young, rough Arthur, transforms Gwynna into the mysterious Lady of the Lake, a boy warrior, and a spy.
From the Publisher:
After meeting Myrddin the bard upon fleeing her invaded village, Gwynna agrees to be bound in service to him in exchange for his protection, yet in time she is introduced to the dark side of Camelot and becomes a powerful player in the realm who helps shape the course of history with her skillful transformations.When her village is attacked and burned, Gwyna seeks protection from the bard Myrddin, who uses Gwyna in his plan to transform young Arthur into the heroic King Arthur.

Praise

"Reeve's brilliant, brutal re-creation of Arthurian myth is a study in balance and contradiction: it is bleak yet tender; impeccably historical, yet distinctly timely in its driving sense of disillusionment." 11/1/2008

"It's a hard-edged, unromantic examination of Dark Ages realpolitik...Absorbing, thought-provoking and unexpectedly timely." 10/15/2008
