About the Author

According to Gerald Morris: “When I found Arthurian literature, years later, I knew at once that I wanted to retell those grand tales"--and, in a span of ten years, Morris has done just that. Morris lives in Wausau, Wisconsin, with his wife and their three children. In addition to writing he serves as a minister in a church. Legend of the King is his tenth and final book of the series.
When Gerald Morris was in fifth grade he loved Greek and Norse mythology and before long was retelling the stories to his younger sister and then to neighborhood kids. He began carrying a notebook in which he kept some of the details related to the different stories. The joy he found in retelling those myths continued when he discovered other stories. According to Gerald Morris, “I never lost my love of retelling the old stories. When I found Arthurian literature, years later, I knew at once that I wanted to retell those grand tales. So I pulled out my notebook . . . I retell the tales, peopling them with characters that I at least find easier to recognize, and let the magic of the Arthurian tradition go where it will.” Gerald Morris lives in Wausau, Wisconsin, with his wife and their three children. In addition to writing he serves as a minister in a church.

This is the final installment of the Squire's Tale series. Morris takes us on this adventure with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table as they battle to save Camelot from Arthur's son and enemy Mordred. This story takes place when honor, friendship and loyalty are not just words but a way of life. The knights battle not only Mordred but also their own inner demons. This adventure is well worth the read. It's full of humor, heartbreak, and heroism. This is the first book I read by Gerald Morris, but it won't be the last. I am adding the whole squire series to my TBR pile. I am kicking myself for not discovering this series sooner. For me this is definitely a "to read". I would happily recommend it to anyone. It will be available on Sept. 2010.
