Her castle under siege by an evil knight who keeps beheading all her sister Lyonesse's would-be suitors, Lady Lynet realizes the only way to get help is to get it herself, in this third book of the Squire's Tales. So one night the "savage damsel" slips away and strikes out for King Arthur's court where she hopes to find a gallant knight to vanquish the Knight of the Red Lands and free her castle. This book, like the others in the Squire's Tales series for readers 10 to 14, is full of adventure and humor—a tale of hidden identities, mysterious knights, faeries and enchantments, damsels-in-distress, and true love. The series follows Terence, squire to Sir Gawain of the Round Table, and his master through a series of quests, rescues, contests with other knights, and unexpected encounters with the Other World, the faerie realm with which Terence has a strange connection.

"A perfectly delicious, not entirely serious, reimagining of part of Thomas Mallory's Le Morte d'Arthur.... There's a lot of commentary about the foolishness of men—certainly this gaggle of knights offers much to giggle at—and Lynet's directness contrasts strongly with her sister's simper and whine. Lancelot, Gawain, and Morgan Le Fay make cameo appearances, but no previous knowledge of Arthurian legend is required to enjoy this sweetly amusing tale."—Booklist
