What’s one character or story that you’d like to see done with a gender reversal? Like the Golden Trio flipped? Can you imagine boy Hermoine walking into the Yule ball with his curly hair slicked back? 😂😍. . I love the tales of King Arthur and the round table, the Lady of the Lake, and Merlin. So I was over the moon to see “Cursed” not only as a gender reversal for King Arthur but also a mixed media story! (Thank you to @simonteen for gifting me this copy) Ever since I read “The Assassination of Brangwain Spurge” I’ve been looking for another mixed media book because I thought it was brilliant. (“Cursed” has 8 full color images and 30 black and white pieces of original artwork by Frank Miller) . 🗡 “Cursed” is going to focus on Nimue (The Lady of the Lake) who I love very much. I have that iconic image of Nimue’s hand raised from the lake holding the sword for Arthur and I love the idea of her wielding it for her own people. . On Goodreads “Cursed” has the highest average of 3 star ratings, which for me is the rating sweet spot, so we shall see. My goal is to read this over the weekend. I’ll keep you updated in my stories. This one is also being adapted for a Netflix series. I love the magical Merlin vibe/aesthetic of past films, so I’m looking forward to seeing how this one turns out. . Synopsis: 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
