by Jo Walton

Genre: Science Fiction, General Science Fiction

RT Rating

After being brutally raped and seeing her brother murdered, Sulien ap Gwien seeks help from the High King. King Urdo sees her potential to be a great warrior and asks her to join him. She becomes one of his armigers in THE KINGS PEACE (2). Urdos goal is to create a lasting peace for all people within his land. A richly woven narrative, this debut novel from Jo Walton depicts a meticulously researched alternate account of the Arthurian legend. However, in Ms. Waltons effort to differentiate her tale, she doesnt establish a dialogue with her readers. This book is only for those willing to immerse themselves in detailed battle strategy, armament, environment, and the familiar Arthur Pendragon tale. (Oct.)
