5.0 out of 5 stars Mordred .... a hero (?) Oct. 25 2000
By A Customer
After having read Mary Stewart's Merlin trilogy, I was rather reluctant to read this book. Having pre-conceived ideas of Mordred's evil character, I didn't want to destroy the 'feel-good' warmth that I had at the end of the trilogy. But, having started Stewart's journey, I just felt I had to finish it, even though I knew it would not be a happy ending.
How wrong I was!!!! This book threw all my expectations of doom and gloom out the window, and impossible as it may seem ... I actually ended up feeling good even if the end was rather tragic.
It is extremely refreshing to see Mordred put in an entirely different light - a courageous, strong-willed and honest man, instead of the evil, greedy and conniving son in other more common versions. Unfortunately, in this book, it was circumstances and misunderstandings that went against him. The best part was - it was totally believable!!!
If you only want to know 1 version of Mordred's story, then this should be it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly my favorite of Stewart's novels. July 19 2000
By Malice
I've always been attracted to the character of Mordred in Arthurian legend and who he was (or wasn't). Stewart tells a grim tale, densely,--and the ending is by far the finest I've encountered in any other Arthurian novel: Mordred and Arthur fighting against one another. Even Stewart admits in her notes that tracing back to the first mention of Mordred, there was no mention of him fighting *against* his father (or possibly his uncle), but simply dying in the same battle. Presented in "The Wicked Day" the way it is, the Mordred-Arthur "conflict" is much more heartrending and dark. I loved this book.

Though not as good as the Merlin Trilogy this is still a very good book and a fitting conclusion to Stewart's retelling of Authorian lore. Stewart takes a completely different view of Mordred than most writters. He is not a sniveling, cowardly villian, but a potential hero. Doomed to infamy by prophecy.
