"A spellbinding and subversive queer recasting of Arthurian myth by the legendary author of Hild The girl knows she has a destiny before she even knows her name. She grows up in the wild, in a cave with her mother, but visions of a faraway lake come to her on the spring breeze, and when she hears a traveler speak of Artos, king of Caer Leon, she knows that her future lies at his court. And so, brimming with magic and eager to test her strength, she breaks her covenant with her mother and, with a broken hunting spear and mended armour, rides on a bony gelding to Caer Leon. On her adventures she will meet great knights and steal the hearts of beautiful women. She will fight warriors and sorcerers. And she will find her love, and the lake, and her fate. Nebula and Lambda Award-winning author Nicola Griffith returns with Spear, a glorious queer retelling of Arthurian legend, full of dazzling magic and intoxicating adventure"--… (més)

Visceral prose with an immediate urgency. At first, I enjoyed the worldbuilding and stage setting, but this never gives way to much of a story, mostly just mystical ambiance. ( )

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. ( )
