My Thoughts - Story
I was totally wrong with what I was expecting when I requested this book. I thought it was going to be a retelling of Arthur being a girl, instead it is a story through Nimue’s POV. This was not what I was expecting but I kept an open mind. If you don’t know who Nimue is, she is the Lady of the Lake who originally had Excalibur before Merlin/Arthur.

Then I felt as I was reading that this was made more for the movies instead of a book – I mean I have a good imagination, but this was difficult sometimes to process what was supposed to be going on.

Overall, this book held my attention and I can’t wait to see the Netflix adaptation on screen. I think I will give it a 5 star after the fact.
