Review

"Fast-moving and easy to read, this novel will lure youngsters into wanting to read more about Camelot, while those familiar with the Arthurian legends will enjoy this new interpretation."--"School Library Journal, Starred

-Fast moving and easy to read, this novel will lure youngsters into wanting to read about Camelot, while those familiar with the legends will enjoy this new interpretation.- --School Library Journal, starred School Library Journal, Starred
Young Terence, squire to Sir Gawain, can't deny that things at Camelot are changing--and not for the better. Handsome new knight Sir Lancelot has eclipsed Gawain's star and also has won the heart of Queen Guinevere, sending courtiers into a gossipy frenzy, and beloved King Arthur into a depression. When the mysterious, otherworldly Green Knight issues a daunting challenge, only Gawain accepts, proving his loyalty to Arthur, though embracing potential tragedy. But the quest proves a soul-searching, ultimately rewarding personal pilgrimage. A sequel of sorts to Morris' The Squire's Tale (1998), 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, ALA
-This Arthurian road trip will have readers wondering why there aren't more books like this one and hoping that Morris will do it again.- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
-In this Arthurian fantasy that picks up several years after THE SQUIRE'S TALE leaves off, Terence finds himself at the beginning of another quest as Sir Gawain's squire. Although the novel builds upon plot elements and characters found in the first volume, the story stands well alone. Laced with magic, humor, and chivalry, this reworking of ''Sir Gawain and the Green Knight'' provides an engaging introduction to the original tale.- Horn Book
This sequel to The Squire's Tale (1998) finds Morris's affable young hero, Terence, still serving the legendary Sir Gawain. The kingdom of Camelot, where they are living, is in despair over Queen Guinevere's affair with Sir Lancelot; when Gawain is challenged to meet the Knight of the Green they set off on a new quest. Terence is still young, but he is no longer the novice of the previous novel; when Gawain is imprisoned by the treacherous Marquis of Alva and scheduled for execution, it's up to Terence to save not only his knight, but the beautiful and spirited Lady Eileen. The three of them come upon an enchanted castle, where the lord of the realm turns out to be the Green Knight in disguise: Gawain is forced to pass two additional challenges in order to regain face. There is a well-crafted but tumultuous unfolding of events, and an author's note in which Morris explains his abiding affection and respect for Gawain; this personal touch may send readers straight off to Chaucer. Even Arthur and Guinevere make up in this engaging adventure, an ideal follow-up to the first book and just as full of characters who are brave, loyal, and admirably human.

From the Inside Flap

Sir Gawain and his squire Terence have set off on another adventure, only to be deterred by a surprise disaster. As a result, Gawain must meet with the invincible Green Knight in a contest that could easily be Gawain's last.
But the road to impending death is never easy, and theirs is filled with danger and mishaps. Along the way Gawain and Terence cross paths with many odd men. Even odder creatures from the Other World will teach Terence about his past, and perhaps a little about his future. Gawain and Terence must rescue a not-too-typical damsel-in-distress, Lady Eileen, from the evil Marquis of Alva. In Lady Eileen, Terence may have met his match, in more than one way.
One thing is certain: when Gawain and Terence finally encounter the Green Knight, it will be the knight's turn to be surprised.
