Rosalind Miles’ Tristan and Isolde trilogy is a great blend of Arthurian literature, mythology, and history. Unlike some other Arthurian novels that attempt to set the ancient characters firmly within the confines of history, Miles blurs the lines and weaves an entertaining love story from the blend of fact and fiction.
While the trilogy is primarily a re-telling of a famous tragic love story from the Arthurian legends, Miles makes sure her characters are well-rounded. The readers get to watch as Isolde goes from bratty princess to a strong-willed Queen while Tristan morphs from an immature boy desperate to prove himself to the brave knight that we all know and love.
