The Mists of Avalon
Marion Zimmer Bradley
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In Marion Zimmer Bradley's masterpiece, we see the tumult and adventures of Camelot's court through the eyes of the women who bolstered the king's rise and schemed for his fall. From their childhoods through the ultimate fulfillment of their destinies, we follow these women and the diverse cast of characters that surrounds them as the great Arthurian epic unfolds stunningly before us. As Morgaine and Gwenhwyfar struggle for control over the fate of Arthur's kingdom, as the Knights of the Round Table take on their infamous quest, as Merlin and Viviane wield their magics for the future of Old Britain, the Isle of Avalon slips further into the impenetrable mists of memory, until the fissure between old and new worlds' and old and new religions' claims its most famous victim.
Vivid, detailed imagining
I first read this book about 15years ago and it has stuck with me. By far my favorite telling of the story of King Arthur and his Camelot.
I read it twice...and I'm sad when I finish it.
Favorite Book of ALL Time
This book is now time favorite book and happens to be most inspiring book I've ever read. I even visited England because of this book and went to the site where Guinevere and King Arthur supposedly were buried in Glastonbury. I recommend this book for anyone who loves fairytales with some historical insights.
