Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lady Of Avalon If you have read any other review that I have made you might have guessed I like Marion Zimmer Bradleys work.. I read the Lady of Avalon but as the times progressed It got a little confusing.. we see Gawen as Bradley potrays him and that is the one character that remains constant during the whole book. But when it finally "clicks" and I saw that it was Gawens spirit Re-Incarnated things made more sense to me.. all in all I loved the book and couldn't put it down. I am currently working my way through the Forest House and I hope that when I finish it more things make sense to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lady of Avalon A triumphant conclusion to the series, this book bridges the gap between The Forest House and The Mists of Avalon. Written in three parts, each covers a different time period. Bradley makes her characters come alive. Each part of this book could have been a separate novel. Very well researched and beautifully written. This trilogy is a must for any historical fiction fan, whether you enjoy fantasy or not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lady of Avalon A great bridge between Forest House and The Mists of Avalon, lush in details about ancient religions and full of wonderful characters. I'd recommend to anyone interested in the history of Roman Britannia, with lots of Saxons and Druids. This story leads up to the time of King Arthur. Comparable to Melanie Rawn in character development and Anne Rice's Witching Hour for historical detail.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lady of Avalon What a bore! The third book of the Avalon series, Bradley makes it seem as if it were only written to fulfill her contract. It lacked all the enthusiasm and charisma that defined Mists of Avalon and The Forest House. Both the writing and the storyline seem choppy and rushed.

From Our Editors

Lady of Avalon is the magical story of how a line of women laid the foundation of the fabled kingdom of Camelot. Caillean took priestesses with her to the island of Avalon to look after the heir to a mystic royal line. Dierna ensures safety for Avalon through political means, marrying an Avalon priestess to a Roman general, only to find that true love is less sure. Ana is the grandmother of the great king to come, but her daughter Viviane is also destined for greatness as the Lady of the Lake. Filled with rich detail, Marion Zimmer Bradley transports the reader to ancient times and places that reverberate with magic.
