Here is Clue #11 in the One Adjective to Rule Them All competition. Words from a review by Margaret Kingsbury in Buzzfeed. The background illustration is taken from one of Spear‘s interior artworks by Rovina Cai.
Image description: Square graphic in blue-grey showing a silhouette of a rider on a horse surrounded by wind or smoke. Centred in white text, “This immersive and inclusive retelling is breathtakingly beautiful, sharing a vision of Arthurian legend that dismisses earlier retellings in favor of nance and joy.” And below that, in red-orange, “Margaret Kingbury, Buzzfeed”
The competition is OPEN TO ANYONE IN THE WORLD, NO PURCHASE NECESSARY! The winner gets 3 prizes in one:
