[[ Download Epub ]] ó I am Morgan le Fay: A Tale from Camelot Ø Morgan is a willful, mischievous girl with mismatched eyes of emerald and violet A girl of magic, whose childhood ends when King Uther Pendragon murders her father and steals away her mother Then Pendragon dies and, in a warring country with no one to claim the throne, there are many who want Morgan dead But Morgan has power, and magic She is able to change the course of history, to become other, to determine her own fateand, thus the fate of Britain She will become Morgan le Fay Springer wields language like a sword, and both blood and flowers spring to these pages in vivid hues Booklist, starred review Narrated by Morgan, Springer's plot tells the well known legend of Arthur from a feminine perspective.A novel with a similar theme:Mist of Avalon I Am Morgan Le Fay is a young adult novel which tries to give Morgan Le Fayof a reason for her actions andpsychological depth It’s reasonably successful in that, though it’s not one of my favourite Arthurian stories I’ve ever read — it seems a bit slight, and Morgan’s behaviour and the outcome was entirely obvious The mythology is a bit of a hotchpotch, but I didn’t mind that too much because it was so lightly touched on Cernunnos is a character, but it doesn’t really go into the significance of magic and how that’s linked to divinity in their world.I kind of think I might be able to judge this better once I’ve read I Am Mordred as well, to see how Springer handles Mordred Mary Stewart manages to excuse Mordred everything while throwing the blame on Morgan, and there’s always blame to go around in Arthurian stories, so I’d kind of like to see where it shifts in this case Presumably not to Mordred, but to whom?Reviewed for The Bibliophibian.
A very nice addition to the body of works featuring a femalecentric, paganinfluenced take on the Arthurian mythos It's not as complex as 'The Mists of Avalon' (which it is clearly influenced by), but it shares some of the same themes.Here, we see events from Morgan's point of view, as she grows up in tune with old magics, and discovers a stone that enhances her powers Hurt by the traumatic events that shake her family, she is often blind to her own faults but she is also not unsympathetic.The events told here largely deal with Morgan le Fay's youth, her growing up, her first love, and the forces that formed her character and led her to, later, do the things her legend tells of.The flavor of the story reminded me a bit of 'King Arthur's Daughter,' by Vera Chapman. Morgan Le Fay A woman of mystery, of evil, of legend Who was she? What made her turn evil and bring down her half brother Arthur?This book tells the why's of Morgan's life.Ok so first off I picked this book up because I just finished watching BBC Merlin and I wanted to hear a different take on Morgana's story.At first I couldn't really get into this book and I almost put it down several times for it was slow at the beginning About the fourth chapter into it though it really started grabbing my interest and I couldn't put it down until I read the last gripping paragraph I found myself really relating to Morgan and sympathizing with her for turning evil (I know I usually like the bad guys/girls in the stories *Cough* Loki anyone?)I hated Morgan's mother and sister, they where positively horrible each in their own ways and frankly I was rooting for them to die the whole book!Thomas was icky I thought, Morgan could have done way mucho better.Overall I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who loves the Arthurian legends as I do.
