"Soon to be a Netflix original series" -- sticker on jacket.
Summary, etc.:
"Nimue grew up an outcast. Her connection to dark magic made her something to be feared in her Druid village, and that made her desperate to leave. . . . That is, until Red Paladins slaughter her entire village, and Nimue's fate is forever altered. Charged by her dying mother to reunite an ancient sword with a legendary sorcerer, Nimue is now her people's only hope"-- Provided by publisher.

    As Nimue's druid mother lies dying, she charges her daughter with delivering something to the mage Merlin. The package contains the fey-created Sword of Power, aka the Devil's Tooth, whose possession marks the One True King—or queen in Nimue's case. Nimue, Arthur, Morgan, and their allies seek peace and a home for her people, but the Pendragon King Uther, among others, is intent on claiming the sword for himself, and Nimue knows the sword is both weapon and curse for those who own it. Straightforward storytelling, dotted with seemingly unintentional twenty-first-century idioms, helps Wheeler update the Arthurian Lady of the Lake legend for both print and planned Netflix series audiences. Fabled characters like Arthur and Morgan are presented as regular people, with few hints as to their future talents or abilities. Miller's artwork, some in black and white and some in color, which is reminiscent of his Xerxes series, is edgy and dark and welcomes a more diverse audience by referencing many ethnicities and cultures. This is a natural if less complex fit for fans of Game of Thrones.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This collaboration by beloved comics-creator Miller and Empire series creator/producer Wheeler will be getting an extra promotional push from Netflix on top of royal treatment from the publisher.
