Description
Squire Terence and Sir Gawain are off questing again, in this sequel to The Squire's Tale, but this time their journey is overshadowed by their ultimate destination: Gawain is to meet up with the Green Knight in a contest that could easily lead to Gawain's death. Along the way the two have a slew of hair-raising adventures and encounter an odd assortment of characters, including the plucky Lady Eileen, and sparks instantly fly between her and Terence as she joins the squire and his knight on their travels. Weaving their way between the world of men and the Other World, Gawain and Terence discover much about themselves. This book, like the others in the Squire's Tales series for readers 10 to 14, is full of adventure and humor. The tales follow 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 sequel of sorts to Morris' The Squire's Tale, this delightful interpretation of 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight' stands well on its own. The glory days of knights and quests are brought to life with humor, dimensional characters, exceptionally descriptive prose, and fresh, modern dialogue. Although Morris takes some liberties with the story line and characters—explained in a charming, informative endnote—his novel, with a skillful use of wit and drama, illustrates that heroes of life and literature are by no means diminished by human folly."—Booklist
