Description

Teenaged Lady Lynet sets out for Camelot, looking for a champion to free her family's castle from the siege of an evil knight. Along the way, she befriends several mysterious companions, none of whom is exactly as he or she first appears. Scattered throughout Lynet's saga are droll, unusually modern portrayals of many familiar Arthurian characters. The heroine, nicknamed the Savage Damsel, is a take-charge kind of girl. Noble Sir Gareth appears as a "clothheaded ninny," whose turbo-charged sense of honour forces him into an unnecessary duel with every knight he stumbles across, while brave Sir Lancelot has burned out on chivalry and admits he has become a media creation. The third novel in The Squire's Tales series, The Savage Damsel and the Dwarf is a highly comic tale of enchantment, hidden identity and damsels in distress.show more

About Gerald Morris

Gerald Morris has written four titles in the highly-acclaimed The Squire's Tales series. In addition to writing he also serves as pastor of a church and teaches theology. As a child, Morris read voraciously, but mostly bad Western novels. Years later, when he discovered the ancient tales of King Arthur and realized what a good thing he had been missing all those years, he decided to retell those stories for the next generation. Gerald lives in Wisconsin, USA with his wife and three children.show more
