|This is the story of Gareth the youngest son of King
Arthur, but this is not the tale that most are familiar with.
This King Arthur is not from Earth, but he did visit there.
King Arthur is trying to marry Gareth off, but this could be a
difficult task because Gareth must marry a virgin.
Chrysanthemumís father works for King Arthur and he has
asked for permission to bring her and her two sisters to court
in hopes of marrying them off.
King Arthur is captured by The Blue Knight and is being
ransomed for a virgin. Gareth and Chrysanthemum must journey
to save the king before the kingdom falls. Will they make it
I thought that Chrysanthemum was a unique
take on the legend of King Arthur. Anny Cook teased me by
starting off with Arthurís legend, but she doesnít really go
in depth on the tales of King Arthur because this story is
about Chrysanthemum and Gareth. I really like
how Ms. Cook has obstacles for the main characters to
overcome. It made for an interesting and intriguing story. I
donít think you can have a story with King Arthur and not have
any action. I think the best part of the story is Percival
the dragon, but who doesnít love a cranky dragon.
Chrysanthemum is a wonderful fairy tale brought to
life and I canít wait to read about her sisters.
