    " This was definitely the best of the Paxson books. "

    " I know I like a book and really want to know how it ends when I stay up past midnight on a work night to finish it. I enjoyed the story of how Excalibur was made, and it was fun to see the connections between all the other books. The Avalon series is fun to read! "

    " Truly a brilliant sequel to M.Z. Bradley's Avalon series. It's the series I reread over and over again. "

    " I decided to read this series chronologically rather than publication date. I thought the series would run smoother. Well it didn't. I read Mists of Avalon awhile back. Though the book was one thousand pages long, it flowed well. With Ancestors of Avalon, it was harder to get into but overall, I still liked the book. I think since Diana Paxon has taken over Marion Zimmerman Bradley's legacy, the flow isn't as smooth. For Sword of Avalon, it was incredibly difficult to follow the story. The book skipped like fifteen years without any setup and I felt I was just skimming the book to get the reading done. It is a shame because I like the Arthurian tales and I wanted to like this book.
