when A Giant Green Knight Barrels Into The Christmas Feast At Camelot And Issues A Bloody Challenge, Terence Finds Himself At The Beginning Of Another Quest As Sir Gawain's Squire. Picking Up Several Years After The Squire's Tale (rev. 7/98) Leaves Off, This Arthurian Fantasy Weaves Several Adventures Into One, As Terence And Gawain Face Numerous Adversaries, Both Dangerous And Droll, On Their Way To Finding The Knight Of The Green Chapel. When Gawain Is Captured By A Murderous Marquis, Terence Conspires With The Lord's Plucky Niece To Free Him. Lady Eileen Seizes The Opportunity To Escape From Her Hated Uncle By Joining The Men For The Remainder Of Their Adventure, Which Leads Them Into The Land Of Faery, The Other World. There They Meet Up With A Cannibal Hag, The Legendary Hero Cucholinn, A Sea Monster, And The Green Knight, Who Owes Gawain A Deadly Blow. Terence And His Companions Are Spirited Characters Who Face Each Setback With Courage, If Not Always Common Sense. Although The Novel Builds Upon Plot Elements And Characters Found In The First Volume, The Story Stands Well Alone. Laced With Magic, Humor, And Chivalry, This Reworking Of Sir Gawain And The Green Knight, In Which Gawain Learns Humility And Terence Discovers His True Place In The World, Provides An Engaging Introduction To The Original Tale. --horn Book Magazine
