Hi guys! Today we have a very exciting blog tour! Y’all know how much I love retellings, and this one is extra special. Cursed is the King Arthur story I have always needed, and it is very soon going to be a NETFLIX SHOW. So, you better get on it and read this book now, so you can be one of the hipsters saying you read it before it was cool. 😉 I will have a review of this lovely book up on the blog very soon, and make sure to check the rest of the stops on the blog tour!
The Lady of the Lake is the true hero in this cinematic twist on the tale of King Arthur created by Thomas Wheeler and legendary artist, producer, and director Frank Miller (300, Batman: The Dark Night Returns, Sin City). Featuring 8 full color and 30 black-and-white pieces of original artwork by Frank Miller.
Whosoever wields the Sword of Power shall be the one true King.
But what if the Sword has chosen a Queen?
Nimue grew up an outcast. Her connection to dark magic made her something to be feared in her Druid village, and that made her desperate to leave…
That is, until her entire village is slaughtered by Red Paladins, and Nimue’s fate is forever altered. Charged by her dying mother to reunite an ancient sword with a legendary sorcerer, Nimue is now her people’s only hope. Her mission leaves little room for revenge, but the growing power within her can think of little else.
Nimue teams up with a charming mercenary named Arthur and refugee Fey Folk from across England. She wields a sword meant for the one true king, battling paladins and the armies of a corrupt king. She struggles to unite her people, avenge her family, and discover the truth about her destiny.
But perhaps the one thing that can change Destiny itself is found at the edge of a blade.
I mean, c’mon now! If you don’t think that sounds absolutely incredible, we might need to talk! Releasing on the 1st of October, this book is a must-read of this fall, and I hope y’all join me in being at the top of this trend! I mean, how could you resist. Let me know if you check it out!
Not only do we have an incredible concept, but we also have an absolutely astounding set of writers here, who are sure to blow you away!
Frank Miller is an award-winning comic book writer, novelist, inker, screenwriter, film director, and producer best known for Daredevil, The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City, and 300, among others.
