Publisher Comments:

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 theultimate 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 forcontrol 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 theimpenetrable mists of memory, until the fissure between old and new worlds' and old and new religions' claims its most famous victim.

Synopsis:

A hardcover edition of the best-selling classic follows the legend of King Arthur as told by the women central to the tale, from the zealous Morgaine, sworn to uphold her goddess at any cost, to the devout Gwynhefar, pledged to the king but drawn to another. Reissue. 35,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

England omkring r 400-500. P den hellige ø, Avalon, lægger den synske ypperstepræstinde Viviane og troldmanden Merlin planer for, hvordan de kan bevare den keltiske gudetro og samle landet, som trues af saxernes indtrængen og kristendommens udbredelse.

LeFay, January 21, 2007 (view all comments by LeFay)
One of my favourite book by great writer. I like Arthurian Legends and this book is very good elaboration of them. Mainly character is Morgaine (Morgan le Fay) who was known as evil witch - but it needn?t true ... how says this book. Characters are well-considered, fight between paganism and christianity too. What add yet? I love this book.
