|Plot Summary of The Wicked Day - Arthurian Saga 4|
Mordred, the doomed son of King Arthur tries to fight the impending death of his father. Merlin has fortold that the birth of Mordred will be the death of Arthur. Mordred is raised by fisherfolk and when he is a boy, he is brought to the house of his mother, Queen Morgause. He eventually goes to Camalot and becomes one of Arthur's most trusted advisors.
Mordred, the incestuous bastard of Athur and his half sister, Morgause, finally makes his appearance. Mary Stewart manages to turn this most vilified character into a human character, someone who has to learn the truth about himself, his parentage, and his unsavory fate.
