m still amazed Morris made THE SWORD BRIDGE I will never forget the all caps from the poem, never sound vaguely plausible Granted there was some magic involved, but Lancelot and Sarah being like what the actual fuck about that whole thing ended up being highly amusing And, as always, I will always have some fondness for a story with a numerous female characters who b enjoy one another s company It shouldn t be a lot to expect from fiction AND YET Also worth noting while this is aidealistic Camelot than most modern retellings, Morris doesn t shy away from darker aspects either The books in this series have a pretty obvious formula Main character goes on an adventure, there are a number of episodic struggles while they Learn Important Lessons, and at the end there s an exposition party, during which the main character is amply rewarded Still, the overall storytelling feels lively enough that it feels unique each time NOT easy to accomplish with a myth that s been retold literally hundreds of times I ve been working my way through this series slowly, over the years, because I ll be sad when I m finished Sidenote LOL FOREVER at the author s note where he talks about how perplexing he finds Chretien s The Knight of the Cart My thoughts exactly Oh I loved it I loved it I loved it What amazes me about this series so far is how every book is as good as the one before it I have yet to be disappointed Perhaps I will be, with the eventual climax I assume will have to come, but right now I have nothing but giggles and the sweet taste of a good book Packed with action, adventure, awesome characterscan you ask forI suppose one might say a romance but whenever Morris adds a romance it is generally oddly doneso take my word f Oh I loved it I loved it I loved it What

generally oddly doneso take my word for it, this book is excellent without one I loved the sisterhood feeling, how Sarah the main character goes from seeking revenge to caring about the group of women who end up surrounding her So adorable.All the characters are, really It was great to hear back from Piers and Gawaine and Terence and Sir Kai and even Lancelot, who I previously disliked and have grudgingly come to appreciate.I ve always held a dislike for Arthinian legends but this series.It is just to good to pass up Well worth a read Well, this was Book 6 of The Squire s Tales series and I can confidently say that so far I love the whole series There is no bad book in Gerald Morris retellings of the Arthurian legends they re all great.Although from the summary I expected Sarah to be a typical girl empowerment character, that was far from the truth Her actions make sense and her character arc is gradual, but very powerful Just as a warning to younger readers, let me say that this book isgraphic than the others an Well, this was Book 6 of The Squire s Tales series and I can confidently say that so far I love the whole series There is no bad book in Gerald Morris retellings of the Arthurian legends they re all great.Although from the summary I expected Sarah to be a typical girl empowerment character, that was far from the truth Her actions make sense and her character arc is gradual, but very powerful Just as a warning to younger readers, let me say that this book isgraphic than the others and may offend sensitive readers After all, the reason Sarah is looking for revenge is based on real, very tragic historical events And the road to revenge is not without its victims, so just keep that in mind.Once again Gawain and Terence show up near the end of the book, but it is Sarah and her Dung Cart Knight that play a muchimportant part in the story Gerald Morris certainly has an interesting take on Lancelot, who shows up later on Lancelot has changed immensely from the first few books when he was a caricature of a proper knight foppish, immersed in courtly love, etc He has actually acquired some depth in this book and I look forward to seeing him in the next few books, if only to see how these changes affect his new life at court.With a fast plot, amazing characters both old and new and hints at the tragic ending of the Arthurian legends, you won t want to put down The Princess, the Crone, and the Dung Cart Knight Even though it s aimed at younger readers I loved it, which is why I recommend it to readers of all ages.I give this book 4.5 5 stars, rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads rating purposes It s incredible that even though Lancelot went into hiding 7 years ago, anyone and everyone knows who and where he is if they need to find him Buddy you re not as slick as you think you are.I m so glad Gerald Morris didn t shy away from actual historical middle ages stuff here, like mass murders of Jews Kind of a bummer that Sarah didn t turn out to actually be Jewish, and that she didn t actually even kill the guy who orchestrated her parents deaths, and also kinda a bummer that Lancelot It s incredible that even though Lancelot went

historical middle ages stuff here, like mass murders of Jews Kind of a bummer that Sarah didn t turn out to actually be Jewish, and that she didn t actually even kill the guy who orchestrated her parents deaths, and also kinda a bummer that Lancelot and Arielle were judging her so harshly for killing the dude who was physically responsible for her parents deaths.I m glad Guinevere wasof a grown up in this novel than the first two Squire books, because her idiotic behavior felt like a cheap easy shot, especially when Morris gave so muchheart and understanding to Gawain Lancelot got some really good motivation in this, but I still feel like Morris did him a bit dirty.This book felt like a return to the Squire books, much closer in spirit to the first 2 in the series Although Terrence has become such an inscrutable, non human kind of guy that I kind of don t like him any Also, if Lady Eileen was in this book, I literally don t remember it at all Closure for Sir Lancelot.Sarah s mother and caretaker, a Jewish cloth merchant, were killed because of hatred of Jews So Sarah made a vow to avenge their deaths by seeking out the knight who prompted the villagers to kill them But first she needs a sword Opportunity strikes when she crosses paths with Sir Kai and Queen Genievere She attempts to steal Sir Kai s sword, but when she is caught, instead of harming her for stealing, Kai gives her a sword made for his son and teaches her the basics Closure for Sir Lancelot.Sarah s mother and caretaker, a Jewish cloth merchant, were killed because of hatred of Jews So Sarah made a

off of her quest when the queen and Sir Kai are kidnapped by a knight and she is the only witness She travels to Camelot to tell King Arthur and is asked to travel along with Gawain and Terence as they set out to find the queen.Along the way, Sarah becomes separated from Gawain and falls in with knight who looks less than desirable but can fight better than anyone she has ever seen Soon she finds out that the knight is none other than Sir Lancelot Together, they travel to a magical castle where the queen is being held As they attempt to rescue her, Lancelot comes to terms with himself, and Sarah finds that revenge is not always so sweet.One of my favorite of the Squire s Tale series Returning to top form, Morris sends a young orphan on a quest that teaches her the emptiness of vengeance as she frees an entire kingdom from an enchantment which involves crossing a bridge that is the edge of a super sharp sword a notably suspenseful endeavor , saves Arthur s realm from a rebellion, both helps and is helped by Sirs Kai, Gawain and Lancelot along with other members of the merry crew, and performs all manner of heroic deeds including some with a sword Notable passages At
