WILD RELEASE NOTES:

New York Times bestselling author Marion Zimmer Bradley brings the mesmerizing world of myth, romance and history to life in the spellbinding novel of epic grandeur!
Before the legend of King Arthur and Camelot, there was Avalon, a beautiful island of golden vales and silver mists. A land where the lives of three powerful priestesses shape the destiny of Roman Britian as they fight to regain the magic and traditions of a once gallant past...

This is the bridge between The Forest House and The Mists of Avalon, and, in my opinion, the best of the three. Here, Marion Zimmer Bradley shows a restraint in her writing that would have made The Mists of Avalon an even better book. In this novel, Bradley develops the myth of Avalon itself - how it came to be the seat of power for the Druid priestesses, and how it came to move into the mists that separate it from everyday life. The story spans 350 years in a mere 460 pages. It manages to create strong characters about whom the reader cares. The telling also brings to life the history of the time and the region - this is historical fiction at its strongest. I would especially recommend reading this novel before heading on to The Mists of Avalon, since it sets the stage elegantly for what's to come.
