The Book of Mordred by Vivian Vande Velde

Love to judge a book by its cover? Try The Book of Mordred.
King Arthur had a son or, no, was it his nephew? Even grosser, Mordred is both. In this retelling of the famous legend of Camelot, Mordred is no longer characterized as a bloodthirsty fool, but as a mysterious man. We find out about his softer, more noble side through the eyes of three women who loved him. Along the way you will fall for Mordred and his heroic deeds and will mourn his death in the end.
