This is another book I read as a child, except in this case I didn’t really remember much of it — the only bit I remembered was the punishment of Madouc’s mother, but that might have been because I was a teenaged boy at the time. Overall this is a very good book. It took me a while to read because of being distracted with other projects, but the ongoing oppression of Princess Suldrun didn’t really help either — it was interesting at first, but got depressing after a while. Its also disturbing how many times sexual assault is used as a plot element in this book…
