From backcover:
"A new age is coming... The King will come... and he will rule for ever in Avalon.

Through the generations the women of Avalon prepare for the coming of the Defender, the sacred king who will guard the old ways of teh Britons and save their land from destruction. On the holy isle of Avalon, hidden in the mists between the world of Faerie and the world of men, they wait...

For High Priestess Caillean, facing the Roman foe, salvation comes not through victory, but bitter sacrifice. Two hundred years later hes successor Dierna faces a new enemy: the Saxon hordes who assail her people like savages. By the time of Viviane, Britain seems wholly lost. But a Merlin is made amongst the Druids once more, and the day of the Defender, who will come to be known as Arthur, draws close..."

After reading the "Mists of Avalon", I started looking for the rest of Bradley's books that are talking about the Arthurian legend, Avalon, High Priestesses, Merlin. This one is one of the best that I've read -and although it feels quite hard to part with, I'm making it available as I don't think that I'll be reading it again any time soon.

I mailed the book today to Jaycee1972 as part of a trade. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Received today from Asterw as part of a trade. Thank you so much. I am looking forward to reading this, although it may be a while until I get around to it as I have a few rings to read. Like Asterw, I have read the Mist of Avalon and loved it. I am hoping this one is as good.
