Heart's Desire - Nimue's Story, Garth Nix , single work short story fantasy

As with Nix's other story, 'Under the Lake,' 'Heart's Desire' is also a take on the Lady of the Lake myth. Whereas the first portrays her as a somewhat psychopathic goddess who gives the dubious gift of Excaliber to mankind, the latter explores her relationship to Merlin and the reason behind why she entrapped him beneath the earth.
