Description


“Another engaging take on Arthurian legend . . . Morris deftly blends bloody clashes of arms and mysterious enchantments with the many flavors of romance.” —Kirkus Reviews

Piers is desperate to become a page to escape the dirty, tedious labor of his father’s blacksmith shop. So when a knight arrives announcing that he’s on “the quest,” Piers begs to go along. Off on a series of adventures he never dreamed possible, Piers and the knight quickly run into difficulties. The knight is slain by Parsifal who is on a quest of his own.

Parsifal is unlike anyone Piers has ever met. He doesn’t behave “knightly” at all. Slowly, Piers realizes that being a knight has nothing to do with shining armor and winning jousts. And, as their journey continues, they find that to achieve their quest they must learn more than knighthood: they must learn about themselves.

The tale of Parsifal has been told more than that of any other knight, but no one has ever told his story quite like Gerald Morris does in his fourth Arthurian novel, another tour de force of humor, action, magic, and, as always, true love.

“Entertaining . . . Arthurian fans will be hooked by the great writing.” —School Library Journal

“Libraries where Morris’s Arthurian series has a following will certainly want to add this to their fiction collections.” —Booklist
