"Intelligent and imaginative...even the magic convinces." -Mary Renault, author of The King Must Die On The Path Toward Greatness, Every Hero Makes a Choice Legends sing of Sir Gawain, one of the most respected warriors of King Arthur's reign and one of the greatest champions of all time. But this is not that story. This is the story of Gwalchmai, middle sonof the beautiful, infinitely evil sorceress Morgawse, and gifted student of her dark magical arts. A story of an uncertain man, doubting his ability to follow his elder brother's warrior prowess and seeking to find his own identity by bonding with his frightening and powerful mother. Disappointed in himself and despised by his father, Gwalchmai sets out on a journey that will lead him to the brink of darkness... A tale of loss, redemption, and adventure, Hawk of May brings new depth and understanding to Sir Gawain, the legend of King Arthur, and the impact of choices made-and the consequences that follow. "A welcome new light on the horizon of popular Arthurian legend...delightful...a strong sense of love and mysticism...a ripping adventure tale." -Booklist "Will appeal to those who have enjoyed Tolkien's works." -Library Journal "Compelling...splendid...vibrant...exhilarating...a novel that seduces us into accepting sorcery and sanctity in King Arthur's England." -New York Times Book Review… (mer)

I haven't read these in 20 years. Time for them to go ( )

The Irish prince, Gwalchmai ap Lot escapes from the enchantment cast on him by his own mother, the sorceress Morgawse. He flees south to Camlann in Britain where he hopes to join the war band of the high king, Arthur. But Arthur suspects him of being a spy sent by Morgawse. ( )

A novel about Arthurian legends, focusing on Morgawse's son Gwalchmai - the hawk of May of the title. ( )

A book I send people to, when they think "The Mists of Avalon" was a good book. I think this one better, with more research than some on the same topic. There's a great deal of stuff on Arthur and I'm sorry more people haven't read and looked at the Howard Pyle Young Adult version. ( )
  DinadansFriend | Sep 2, 2013 |
Not as in love with this one as with Kingdom of Summer, its sequel; it is a lot harder to write a child's point of view than an adult's, to be fair, and there were some lovely moments of interaction between Gwalchmai and Agravain. But all in all: Gwalchmai's growth is pretty hard to make sense of — I get his desire to learn from his mother, but his rejection of her is more opaque, and it is especially difficult to understand what happens to him on the Isle of the Blessed — the tension between Light and Darkness is overly simplistic, and I felt as though Bradshaw was only reluctantly writing fantasy. She's clearly much more interested in the power struggles in post-Roman Britain than in epic moral battles and magic. Which is totally fine! I just wish she hadn't tried to do both — own you historical geekery, Gillian! You are really good at it! ( )
