"Knights were myths stuck on repeat--a battle song that just kept streaming. Stories that kept being told in different times and bodies. Valkyries had a wild family tree, stretching back to the time when this whole place was covered in boreal forest. People loved reading stories about King Arthur and Morgan le Fay, but the reality was a lot more complicated. Arthur was in prison, Morgan was a university dean, and Hildie spent most of her time untangling blood feuds and breaking up fights on the beach. When a knight died under suspicious circumstances, it was her job to separate the facts from the stories. And every one had a long story." -- The Winter Knight by Jes Battis We are being spoiled for books based on the King Arthur mythos recently! I'm only about a third of the way into this one, but I'm enjoying it so far.
