Description
Water spirit Damosel, the Lady of the Lake, glides through Arthurian legend like a glamorous wraith, shimmering between the worlds of fairies and humans, in this novel for readers 11 to 14. Her knowledge is vast and leads to her greatest honor—and worst mistake, as she promises Merlin to protect young King Arthur and then dares to break her promise. Also telling the tale is 17-year-old Twixt, a dwarf rescued by a knight of Camelot, who finds himself in a unique position to observe Arthur's kingdom as his court jester.

"In this lovely tale, drawn from Arthurian lore, Merlin commissions Damosel, the Lady of the Lake, to craft a wondrous sword for Arthur, the future king. Intertwined with Damosel's tale is the story of Twixt, an insightful, clever dwarf, who is rescued from an abusive situation by Tor, an Arthurian knight on his way to Camelot. Twixt becomes a keen observer of court gossip, while Damosel protects Arthur with her powers of enchantment and ability to envision happenings from afar. Together, Damosel and Twixt tell a Camelot saga with all its political intrigue, battles, and romance. The magic is exciting and palpable ... Spinner's elegant language, strong characterizations, energetic dialogue, and lively plot combine in a memorable, accessible novel."—Booklist
