    Uther Sucks: I wasn't sure where to work this in to the series, so we'll do it here.. It seems that people are fairly sympathetic to Uther on the forums, but in the GPC+BoU as written, he's pretty terrible. Let's set aside the business with Ygraine, the prerogatives of the king (especially regarding Ire), and the dereliction of Gorlois' duties.   In the time line, "Uther" covers the same period as book 3 of the series, "The Eagle's Brood". Where "The Eagle's Brood" was told from the point of view of Merlyn, "Uther" is told from the point of view of Uther. I suppose this book can be considered an alternative historical fiction, but I won't go there/5(5).

    "Tristan de Bois was the brother of Ygraine, Uther's wife." Gaius said while opening a book, me frowning as me and Merlin crowded around. "Arthur's mother?" "Ygraine died in childbirth. He blamed Uther and came to the gates of Camelot and challenged him." He said, my eyes growing wide as I looked at him. "To single combat." "Uther won. But in his dying.   There's never a moment when the outcome is in doubt, little suspense, no real difficulties that Igraine's family must fight their way through -- and it's surprising how delightful this can be. Popular German author Cornelia Funke seems to write two types of fantasy -- the intense, edgy kind, typified by her Inkheart series, and a lighter, more playful kind, better suited to 4/5.

    About the book. An adventure is what Igraine wants most in the world – and on her twelfth birthday she finds one! Everyone at Castle Pimpernel is looking forward to Igraine’s birthday. But when her magical present goes wrong and her parents accidentally turn themselves into pigs, it’s up to Igraine to put things right – even if that. Gorlois had moved into the room. He was standing by the table Ygraine had been sitting at when Uther had entered, a table with a large pewter candlestick on it. Uther padded over to the table, even as the spell conveniently made Gorlois turn his back to it. Uther raised the candlestick and struck Gorlois on the back of the head.
