As many of you wonderful Books for Breakfast readers know (because this has been recommended for three years), this book is about the Arthurian legend. However, the twist is the old Celtic/Druid tales, as well as the legend told entirely from the women's point of view.
I have studied the lost Druid training of the "Isle of Mona," and I wonder how much could be truth. Or, is it a form of truth that cannot be proven other than in faith? Either way, I was hypnotized by this epic book. At times, the actions of the characters angered me, but this was the purpose of the novel. Such strangely beautiful writing, as well.
Are the other books in the series (and written with her sister-in-law) comparable? How odd that I felt a sense of loss when I read the epilogue and learned that Marion Zimmer Bradley had died two decades ago. It had been like finding a new friend.
