The Squire, His Knight and His Lady by Gerald Morris is a charming retelling of Gawain and the Green Knight.

I finally read the sequel to Squire’s Tale in which Terence became the squire to Sir Gawain.

It begins with the love triangle between Queen Guinevere, Sir Lancelot and King Arthur, and then Gawain meets the challenge of the magical Green Knight who has come from fairyland.  Gawain and Terence go on a quest to find the Green Knight and fulfill the challenge.  Along the way, they meet with an impressive number of adventures and acquire friends and enemies.

This book is less lighthearted than the first one but it is also more involving. I stayed up way too late to finish it.  Although there is another book in the series, I thought this one wrapped up quite nicely.
