"A powerful feminist retelling of the early life of the famed villainess of Arthurian legend, Morgan le Fay, this dazzling debut is the story of a woman both mortal and magical, formidable and misunderstood, told in her own words. Young Morgan of Cornwall lives a happy life in Tintagel Castle until King Uther Pendragon, with the help of the sorcerer Merlin, murders her father and tricks her mother into marriage. Furious, brilliant and vengeful, Morgan defies her brutal stepfather, taking up a secret education, discovering a lifelong affinity with the healing arts, and falling in love with Accolon of Gaul, a talented knight far beneath her station. However, when Morgan is caught alone with Accolon, she is banished to a nunnery until, years later, fate throws the couple together again when she is called back to Tintagel to marry another man. But some passions are not easily forgotten. Used as a bargaining chip in her stepfather's war games, Morgan finds herself in a world of isolated castles and gossiping courts, amidst the machinations of kings, sorcerers and men. As the era of King Arthur approaches, she must use all her wit, knowledge and courage to fight against those who wish to deny her intelligence, crush her spirit and control her body. But, in seeking her freedom, Morgan risks losing everything-her reputation, her loved ones, and her life."--… (mais)

I used to be obsessed with the TV show, Merlin, when I was in high school, so I'm always a bit of a big fan of Arthurian legend retellings. I was really excited to read this one since it's from Morgan Le Fay's point of view.

The world building in this story was absolutely amazing, but I found the pacing to be really slow. A good chunk of the plot follows a love story between Morgan and Sir Accolon, which isn't bad per say, but the book isn't marketed as a romance; I was just expecting more magic and mayhem based on the synopsis.

I also found the characters to be a bit flat; I didn't find anything special about Morgan other than the fact that she can be a little rebellious at times.

Overall, this retelling wasn't for me, but I'd recommend it if you're looking for an Arthurian legend romance story.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the gifted copy. ( )

Too dark and dreary for me. DNF at page 50.

It’s not so much a villains origin story as it is a bad bitches one. I’m team Morgan. Wasn’t expecting the brief romance but I was here for it. The ending was abrupt as I was hoping to see more years of Morgan’s life. Overall I enjoyed it. ( )
