Summary
Look out for the original series starring Katherine Langford coming soon to Netflix!

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 Knight 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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "As Nimue's druid mother lies dying, she charges her daughter with delivering something to the mage Merlin. The package contains the fey-created Sword of Power, aka the Devil's Tooth, whose possession marks the One True King or queen in Nimue's case. Nimue, Arthur, Morgan, and their allies seek peace and a home for her people, but the Pendragon King Uther, among others, is intent on claiming the sword for himself, and Nimue knows the sword is both weapon and curse for those who own it. Straightforward storytelling, dotted with seemingly unintentional twenty-first-century idioms, helps Wheeler update the Arthurian Lady of the Lake legend for both print and planned Netflix series audiences. Fabled characters like Arthur and Morgan are presented as regular people, with few hints as to their future talents or abilities. Miller's artwork, some in black and white and some in color, which is reminiscent of his Xerxes series, is edgy and dark and welcomes a more diverse audience by referencing many ethnicities and cultures. This is a natural if less complex fit for fans of Game of Thrones.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This collaboration by beloved comics-creator Miller and Empire series creator/producer Wheeler will be getting an extra promotional push from Netflix on top of royal treatment from the publisher.--Cindy Welch Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this loose reimagining of the Arthurian mythos (companion to a forthcoming Netflix series), a teenage member of the Fey Kind becomes the epicenter of momentous events after she receives the fabled Sword of Power from her dying mother. Charged with taking the sword to the wizard Merlin, Nimue, oft judged for "the scars on her back," uses it instead to avenge and protect her people, who are being persecuted by religious zealots known as the Red Paladins. Along the way, she allies herself with roguish sell- sword Arthur and establishes herself as the figurehead of resistance against the Red Paladins and King Uther Pendragon's court. Wheeler (The Arcanum) retains names from the Arthurian stories but little else: Merlin is a magicless fraud, Sir Bors is a thug, and Lancelot and Percival are nigh unrecognizable. The story takes place in an anachronistic England in which Fey Kind and humans dwell in an ill-defined time period after the fall of Rome, and no attempt has been made toward historical accuracy or verisimilitude. Flat dialogue, gory combat scenes, and a sprawling plot will likely better suit the small screen. Stylized illustrations by comic book artist Miller punctuate the narrative. Ages 14--up. (Oct.)"
