Morgaine of the fairies....

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Told by a woman

Cons:Very long reading...

The Mists of Avalon, what a wonderful piece of work. It has taken me a very long time to read this book, just reading a few pages here and there.

Marion Zimmer Bradley does an excellent job telling the ancient tale of King Arthur, the round table, and his Queen through the eyes of a woman. It is a fascinating tale where there are really two worlds.

The real world where King Arthur was put on his thrown. A land that Arthur reigns over, and where he fights battles for peace in his land. A place where you need to be a good Christian or be deemed evil or a sorceress. The real world where there is betrayal, treachery, thieves, and companions all alike.

The other world that is hidden by a mist and no one can come or go unless they know the way. A special, beautiful place that is safe from the real world. A place where people learn the Old Ways, and they become priestesses to the Goddess or a Druid. A place where a woman rules the land. A place that is becoming farther and farther away from the real world. A place becoming lost.

The book
The Mists of Avalon tells a story of how Arthur was set on his throne, and how he had sworn an oath to Avalon and then renounced his oath. When he gave an oath to Avalon, he was given Excaliber to protect him, but when he renounced his oath, Excaliber was taken from him. It's about how Arthurs Queen, Gwyenefar, became the throne and the mouth of the King. And also it tells of what part Avalon, and Morgaine of the fairies had in it all.

This book takes the story of King Arthur and puts some twists on it.

I recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
