A posthumous recipient of the World Fantasy Award for Lifetime Achievement, Marion Zimmer Bradley reinvented—and rejuvenated—the King Arthur mythos with her extraordinary Mists of Avalon series. In this epic work, Bradley follows the arc of the timeless tale from the perspective of its previously marginalized female characters: Celtic priestess Morgaine, Gwenhwyfar, and High Priestess Viviane. This is a brilliant literary achievement that will stay with you for a long time to come.

    " I picked this up while on my Arthurian fiction kick, and remember being apathetic towards it overall. "

    " Very good book..my 3rd reading "

    " This was like a weird bender. I devoured it and could hardly get enough but it made me feel kind of uneasy, and now that I've finished it I have about a million complaints. Basically, it's trashy and strangely anti-feminist in its feminism (though I appreciate the effort of course), but somehow incredibly compelling. "

    " I loved this. It's my "dead of winter, curled up at the fire and lost for hours" book. Avoid the HBO movie like the plague. "
