Unlike most contemporary Arthurian literature which tends to borrow a framework and set of characters much in fact as medieval writers did Karr sticks closely to Malory s account but fills in details and backstory to create a whole new approach She begins with a fairly minor tale from Le Morte D Arthur a knight Sir Patrise dies while at a small dinner given by the ueen His cousin accuses her of poisoning Patrise and declares that he will prove this by fighting the champion of her choice Several parties of knights ride out to find Lancelot who is absent In Malory s account no attention is given to the crime beyond the drama it creates but Karr takes the supposition that at least some of those involved would have wanted to find out who actually perpetrated the murder Focusing on Sir Kay Arthur s foster brother and steward and Mordred who decide to travel together to consult the Lady of the Lake she explores the interpersonal and family dynamics that play such an influential role in the Arthurian story cycle This mystery is set after the Grail uest so there is a large corpus of past interactions which the two men discuss in an attempt to decide who may have acted from a hidden grudge against the ueen Sir Patrise or perhaps another guest at the dinner who was the intended victim The glut of information may be somewhat confusing for readers who are minimally familiar with the Arthurian legends Karr does explain fairly clearly but you need to pay close attention to keep all the individuals and their relationships straight

Characters The Idylls of the Queen: A Tale of Queen Guenevere Phyllis Ann Karr ´ 2 Read & download Summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Phyllis Ann Karr Ho is guilty Kay knows the ueen is innocent and an unsuspected murderer is loose in feud filled Camelot a murderer who intended to kill a person or persons other than the obscure knight Patrise and who is poised to kill again With the trial only days away Kay joins with the great knights Gawaine and Gareth and their half brother King Arthur's bastard son Mordred in two uests to find the missing Lancelot and to uncover the true murderer Cynthia Ward. Dear King Arthur or specifically the Morte Dartur fans you will love this bookSo here s the deal this book is a genre blend The narrator Kay is the closest we ever get to a jaded noir detective and uite frankly he plays the role to grumpy perfection Next the book takes its characters straight from the human level everyone has a problem a grudge a secret and it all stems from Thomas Malory s source material But best of all it doesn t fall into the stereotypical portrayal of arthurian characters Sure I don t completely love how Gareth doesn t seem to be a favourite of the author s but this version of him was still well written and made sense given the other Orkney brothers characterization Also I just love how Kay s perspective makes everything just a bit less glamorous and ideal in an The Office way No matter how dramatic Mordred gets Kay remains down to earth and stuck in the mud I say this with affection it s not Kay s fault he s so practicalFinally this is just a great mystery with a compelling cast and engaging writing If you re a fan of the middle ages King Arthur or just love a fun adventure mystery you deserve to have a good time while reading this book
