New 5 Star Review of "Grendel's Mother: The Saga of the Wyrd-Wife"

Grendel’s Mother by Susan Signe Morrison is the Beowulf legend as you have never heard it before. If you are familiar with the legendary poem, you will definitely enjoy the fresh and utterly compelling spin Morrison puts on the Old English tale as she creates compelling backgrounds to some of its pivotal characters. However, even read on its own, Grendel’s Mother is still as grand. Morrison strips the legend down to its bare bones and recreates it into a fresh and most compelling story. The depth of her knowledge of and passion for medieval tales clearly comes through. The rich and lyrical writing style perfectly fits the era in which the story is set and immediately draws you in, persuading you to dive deeper into the story of the fisher and fighting folk. The plot and character development are one of the best I have come across. Grendel’s Mother is no doubt one of the most captivating medieval tales I have ever read.”
