KIRKUS REVIEW

In days long agone ""mine arms"" might have passed muster but wherever is ""whereover"" to be found? Or the interjection ""Grammercy"" with two m's? Or 'gramercy' anyhow after say the 16th century? (Mayhaps the copyeditor was confounded too.) Or ""ween"" ditto? Or ""rightwise,"" rightly the 13th-16th century form of righteous, here unrecognizable. With simple retellings pretentiously and senselessly archaicized let us now be done: in this Arthurian spin-off there are a mere nine or ten words to a line and almost none of them plain, short sentences and almost none of them direct.
