Winners of Jordan by Susan Kearney

Congratulations to SiNn; Lisa R; Kathleen; Cybercliper; and Reena Jacobs!

You have each won a copy of Jordan by Susan Kearney. Please send your mailing address to me at I will forward the information to the publisher Forever Romance.

Everyone was asked to name their favorite character from the legends of King Arthur, and it was interesting to do a tally and see the ranking.

        Merlin turns out to be the favorite with 12 mentions
King Arthur himself comes next with 10

Lancelot was named 8 times

Guinevere 4

Gwain 2

Tristan 1

Lady of the Lake 1

And last but not least Morgan le Fey with 1 mention

I have to agree with Lisa who mentioned Morgan le Fey. Although Morgaine is usually depicted as a villain, I have not been able to think of her in that way since reading The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. She tells the Arthurian legend from the point of view of the women. Morgan served the Goddess, and she was Arthur's older sister. See the entry in Wikipedia

Yikes!! Congratulations to the winners!!

Another great contest, thanks!

I remember watching the tv version of Mists of Avalon with Julianna Margulies. I haven't read the book,though I've heard they didn't do an awesome job of sticking to the book. But after watching it, in my eyes it redeemed Morgaine, despite my thoughts after reading the original legend.

I haven't seen the TV version, but I do like Julianna Margulies and can easily picture her as Morgaine. Maybe I can get in from Netflix.

Once again, Congratulations!
