She left all she knew to find who she could be . . . She grows up in the wild wood, in a cave with her mother, but visions of a faraway lake drift to her on the spring breeze, scented with promise. And when she hears a traveler speak of Artos, king of Caer Leon, she decides her future lies at his court. So, brimming with magic and eager to test her strength, she breaks her covenant with her mother and sets out on her bony gelding for Caer Leon. With her stolen hunting spear and mended armour, she is an unlikely hero, not a chosen one, but one who forges her own bright path. Aflame with determination, she begins a journey of magic and mystery, love, lust and fights to death. On her adventures, she will steal the hearts of beautiful women, fight warriors and sorcerers, and make a place to call home. The legendary author of Hild returns with an unforgettable hero and a queer Arthurian masterpiece for the modern era. Nicola Griffith's Spear is a spellbinding vision of the Camelot we've longed for, a Camelot that belongs to us all.… (més)

This was a fun Arthurian read. I was not expecting the gender-bending. I love a strong heroine. ( )
  Tytania | Aug 10, 2022 |
I didn't know much about this story going in, just that it was a reimagining of the Arthurian legend with a genderbent character. Honestly, Percival/Peredur is not one of the Knights of the Round Table that I knew much about going in, so I didn't know the ways this story differs from the traditional legend until reading the author's note at the end of the book. Still, it was an enjoyable read.

One of my biggest annoyances is the lack of chapter breaks in the story; it was a bit exhausting not having a good place to pause in my reading. (This wasn't anything major, just a little annoyance.)

Rovina Cai's artwork is, as always, stunning. I love having an adult book with interior illustrations. ( )

This is a unique take on the story of King Arthur and Holy Grail, which draws extensively on the Welsh Arthurian legend, particularly the story of Peredur. In this version, Peredur is a girl who dresses as a boy and wants to join Arthur's court, but Arthur is suspicious of her and she has to prove herself to him by finding the Grail. The book has a lot of familiar later Arthurian elements - the Grail, Lancelot - yet it sticks more closely to the original Welsh source material. The book strikes a good balance between being original and staying true to the source material. ( )

A girl lives with her mother in a hidden place, but strikes out to find adventure in this gender-flipping and queer version of Arthurian legend.

I don't want to say too much about the book, because it was really fun to discover Griffith's spin on the tale as it unfolded in this short novella. Her author's note, explaining the origin of Arthurian myth and what tropes she was playing with, was at least as much fun as the story itself. ( )

I was really excited for this book, I love a retelling of King Arthur and his knights. Tracy Deonn's Legendborn renewed my love for King Arthur.

The story overall was good but I found the pace quite slow at times. The last half of the book did pick up in pace as we discovered more of Per's back story and met Nimue.

I would read more of Nicola's books in the future. ( )
