I'm truly happy that I finally picked this book up and found a gem that I'm sure I will re-read many times in the years to come, and I would definitely recommend it to all of you that like these genres!

I was sure that I wouldn't like this story at all after reading The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, but this tale by Nancy Springer is indeed captivating and does a good job in drawing the reader in.

This book is geared to the young audiences of twelve and above but adults would enjoy this telling as well. The author writes with a light hand and fluidity that makes the reader completely forget their surroundings. This is only the second Arthurian story that I have read, also being from the viewpoint of the women, but I am not left wanting for more of the story to put all of the peices of the puzzle together. It is a complete tale.

The story starts out with Morgan as a child witnessing the horror and the trickery of her mother, and how her mother came to be with child from a man who was not her husband. We watch as Morgan comes into her powers and at first the use of them literally knocks her silly, but then she is summoned to Avalon to learn how to use them and to accept that she is the fate she that she fears. Others dwelling in Avalon try to teach her to embrace the dark side of herself before it overtakes her, but that is a lesson she does not learn or cannot learn. Events unravel and we see at each unfolding how she became to be the fearsome enemy of the King that she is known as to this day. She was delt many hardships and has tried to overcome them, but some shadows still stay with her and encourages her position as Arthur's rival.

If one never had sympathy nor empathy for Morgan le Fay, one will by the end of this story. It is beautiful. I am not aware if there is a sequel to this tale, but there definately should be. The story ends just short of seeing Morgan in her role as the dark side of Morgan le Fay. Instead this story focuses on her life and the reason behind her chosen role as King Arthur's arch enemy.

I Am Morgan le Fay is by far one of the best novels I have read in a long time. Of course there are no pictures, but with the way the author writes, will make your imagination run wild with Morgan through, castles, lush green forest, & finding Avalon! I absolutely loved this portrayal of the dark Goddess. I was hooked from the first page and didn't want the story to end. Fantastic read. I am 27 years old & my 13 year old niece spent alot of the summer with me, she read the book and loved it. It even has a special place on my book shelf.

My laundry and dishes suffered because of this book. I really couldn't wait to get back to it. I knew it would end tragically with Morgan le Fay as the protag., but I had to know what happened next! The writing style drew me in. I found myself re-reading sentences because they were so artfully written. This is a keeper. I will re-read it because it was such a beautiful, heartbreaking story.

I read this book a long time ago and for some reason I always remembered it and wanted to read it again. I purchased the book for my kindle a while back and have read it quite a few times since then. I just love the story, I love Morgans character so much. It really explains her and why she is the way she is. I'm not a big fan of stories that make Morgan Le Fay out to be a bad guy which is why I really loved this story, she has demons but she is also capable of love.

My 12-year-old daughter borrowed this book from her school library and she loved it so much, she asked me for her own copy. She loves to read, and she's really into anything with a lot of drama, emotion, excitement, action or fantasy. She reads a lot of books, but she has only asked me to actually buy her a few: Harry Potter, Series of Unfortunate Events, and I Am Morgan le Fay. She was thrilled to open it on Christmas! I haven't read this book myself yet, but I'm reviewing it based on my daughter's high opinion of it. I'm sure she'll enjoy the author's other titles as well.
