Review by Library Journal Reviews

Originally published in 2000, this third book in Morris's Squire series retells a lesser-known episode in the Arthurian canon. Lady Lynet travels to Camelot to request a champion to free her family's lands from the tyranny of the Red Knight. Instead, she meets a knowing dwarf and Beaumains, a kitchen knave, who come to her aid when Arthur's knights fall short. Morris delights in skewering Mallory's heroes. Lady Lynet, the "Savage Damsel," learns that chivalry is the mask of the unintelligent and that the little guy is never what he seems.

Her castle under siege by an evil knight who keeps beheading all her would-be rescuers, Lady Lynet realizes the only way to get help is to get it herself. So one night she slips away and strikes out for King Arthur’s court where she hopes to find a gallant knight to vanquish the Knight of the Red Lands and free her castle. Gerald Morris’s Arthurian novel is a highly comic tale of hidden identities, mysterious knights, faeries and enchantments, damsels-in-distress, and true love.
