Product Description


"Never at a loss for a stirring adjective, this armour-rattling tale gallops along at a good rate." Nick Tucker, TES "These books are so very, very funny! I kept wanting to read the best bits out to my mum." Lucy Howlett, aged 11, Red House Book Club reviewer"

About the Author

Gerald Morris has written seven titles in the highly-acclaimed The Squire's Tales series. In addition to writing he also serves as pastor of a church and teaches theology. As a child, Morris read voraciously, but mostly bad Western novels. Years later, when he discovered the ancient tales of King Arthur and realized what a good thing he had been missing all those years, he decided to retell those stories for the next generation. Gerald lives in Wisconsin, USA with his wife and three children.

Great book. 31 Dec 2006
By M. A. Bechaz - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is actually the sequel to 'The Savage Damsel and the Dwarf', my favourite book in 'The Squire's Tales' series. It follows the adventures of Gaheris and Lynet's daughter, Luneta, as she leaves home for the first time and sets out into the big wide world.

This book is in many ways very similar to its predecessor, most importantly in the quality and humourousness of its writing. Once again, this author proves his merit and reconfirms my view that he is one of the finest, most intelligent and most consistent authors around at the moment. He'll make you laugh, and while you're doing it, he'll also make you think. His insights are second to none. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Good stuff, as usual 24 Mar 2006
By N. Reed - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The Lioness and Her Knight is a great addition to The Squire's Tales series. The reader is reunited with characters that we love to love from earlier novels, and we are introduced to new characters that are stubborn, skilled, funny, silly, shallow, magical, and strong. Our heroes, Luneta, Rhience, and Ywain have some great adventures, some romance, and of course, learn some things about others and themselves along the way. Gerald Morris has once again woven a classic Arthurian story into a fun, witty tale for today's young people and adults.

Gerald Morris is a stinkin' genius!! 12 Jan 2006
By Thewierdo - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book was as good as the first ones. There wasn't as much casual killing.

Gerald Morris is humours,informative on Arthurian legend,and has a very good plot. I have enjoyed all of his books. These books most avid readers can finish in less then a day but sorry to have it end.

Adult or child will enjoy this book. It is a page turner.

Really fun 8 Nov 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The overall plot is the romance between this woman and Ywain, but it gets more complicated. For one thing, Luneta is the main character, and she's going around all over the place. Characters are coming in and out, in and out. There are mini-stories, of how this evil man was killed and that evil man banished. It's one mixing pot of what could be two or three different stories.

The good thing is that the characters are likeable. Luneta is beautiful, smart, and plucky. Rhience is witty and amusing. There is a hermit whose entertaining and gives a whole new meaning to 'holy'. The romance is pretty well developed. The smart, funny dialogue really adds spice and flavour. Yep, the dialogue definitely makes the book more 'good' than 'bad'.

Every one is "the best yet!" 13 Jun 2008
By Inquiring Mind - Published on
Format: Hardcover
These are marvelous books. The writing is witty and imaginative, but Morris doesn't neglect the wisdom in the tales, although he uses a light hand. I hope he publishes another one before I finish the most recent in the series!
