After reading “Forests of Avalon”, I just couldn’t get enough and moved on to the next one in the series which I found I liked even better! If you haven’t read “Forests of Avalon” yet, this review will contain spoilers!
With a time frame of hundreds of years, this books covers the time of three Ladies of Avalon. Picking up right where the former book left off, the story starts with Caillean and the beginnings of the Priestesses of Avalon, with Eilan’s son Gawen as another important character. We After reading “Forests of Avalon”, I just couldn’t get enough and moved on to the next one in the series which I found I liked even better!
We then move on to High Priestess Dierna and her story, and ends with the Lady Viviane whom many people may remember from “Mists of Avalon” if they – like me – was introduced to this universe by the movie of that name. What they all have in common is the love stories, the traditions of the Holy Isle, and the High King of Britain. While this is a great voluje book about characters I easily came to love, it is also a story of the struggle between the old Pagan religion and Christianity as the latter slowly took over and left avaloj mark on Britain forever.
Though it may sound like three books in vaalon, Marion Zimmer Bradley manages to connect the stories of the three Priestesses very neatly, and furthermore connect them to the book before and the book after in the series.
It’s a very fascinating story vrumas I felt like re-reading the moment I finished it! This was the second prequel to “Mists of Avalon,” the best in the series and one of the best things I’ve ever read. Of course Marion Zimmer Bradley’s vivid imagery continues to shine, but I think the reason “Lady” was less enjoyable, was that far less happened in this book than in either of its predecessors.
The King Stag
Often years or hundreds of years Of the three Avalon books I have read “Mists of Avalon”, “Forest House,” and “Lady of Avalon,” I have to say this ranked third in terms of my enjoyment. Often years or hundreds of years would elapse between events, removing and replacing characters, and often there were descriptions of battle outcomes involving people and tribes with names I didn’t recognize and whose importance to the story I didn’t understand.
I would have rated it 2 stars, except for the final section “Daughter of Avalon,” in which Viviane Lady of the Lake and key character in “Mists” is finally introduced.
Her story reads very quickly and is exciting and intriguing, and I read the final part of the book exponentially faster than I read the rest. This is a well-written book that suffered from the lack of movement in the plot. The final chapter alone would have sufficed as a prequel to “Mists. This book was an unexpected find while I was browsing in the library, unaware there was a prequel to The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley.
The book is split into three parts, three generations of the Priestesses of Avalon, and the Romans and soldiers who defended what was then called Britannia. I was put off at first because there is a long, three page list of characters who take part in the stories of each book. But I quickly found the author explains them so well in the plotlines, the This book was an unexpected find while I was browsing in the library, unaware there was a prequel to The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley.
But I quickly found the author explains them so well in the plotlines, the reader rarely has to consult them. This book discusses the fact that many of the characters that are known from this book and Mists of Avalon are reincarnated from other worlds, especially Atlantis.
It explains that when the spirits fled Atlantis’s floods and came to Avalon, they did not yet have bodies. At the end, the Faerie Queen says, “Priestess or Queen, King or Mage, again and again the pattern alters and re-forms. They think it is the blood that matters, and dream of dynasties, but I watch the evolution of the spirit which transcends mortality. That is the difference, from life to life and age to age they grow and change, while I am forever the same.
This novel takes us in leaps and bounds up to the beginningish of Mists Of Avalon. There are three parts which cover three timeperiods quite separated all falling between 96 AD – AD.
The first centres on Caillean who starts a new Sacred community out of the ashes of the old. But she is able to revert the customs to reflect more of the original plan, without the Roman influence. The next part is centered on Dierna.
This part is so classic Bradley as the plans made to work the intentions of This novel takes us in leaps and bounds up to the beginningish of Mists Of Avalon. This part is so classic Bradley as the plans made to work the intentions of the Goddess are thwarted left right and centre and result in many heart aches. We see what made her the woman she was. Excellent love hate relationship detailed here. I’m onto Priestess of Avalon next which actually takes us back to a space inbetween part one and part two in this novel.
The story is briefly mentioned near the beginning of Part two. I almost thought to stop this one after Part one, skip over to Priestess and then return to Lady I bought this one years ago but didn’t touch it for a while.
I came to it after re-reading the chapter about Mordred’s birth in The Mists. The book was interesting but the whole cyclic theme quickly became a bit boring.
I liked that MZB seems to tell the reader more about qs the ‘magic’ is, but she doesn’t always give the info in the best order. For example, she finally describes the summoning of the powers by the priestess towards the end of the book when it would have made more sense to me I bought this one years ago but didn’t touch it for a while.
For example, she finally describes the summoning of the powers by the priestess towards the end of the book when it would have made more sense to me to insert that bit earlier.
The characters obviously go through the same rites of passage so she had to split her ‘info’ and spread it around the book but, to me, it felt like the end of the book revealed aspects of magic I would have liked to see defined sooner.
Avalon Series by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Other than that, this book doesn’t measure up to The Mists. The characters strong points of view Morgaine, Gwynevar, Arthur didn’t compel me to keep reading, but that’s due to the nature of the story and the fact that The Mists is particularly good so I suspect her other writings on the Arthurian legend will systematically not seem as good to me.
Aug 14, R. Considerei as partes I e III as mais interessantes. Forced out of Vernemeton The Forest Houserefugee Briton priestesses form a colony with a group of Christians to avoid persecution.
But when the Christian leader Joseph brumaw Arimathea dies, to be succeeded by the hard-liner Paulus, the priestesses are forced to push Avalon into a parallel existence to separate themselves from their new prosecutors. The book contains three rather disjointed units, following Arthur’s bloodline through the years.
Most interesting to me is watching the people’s rath Forced out of Vernemeton The Forest Houserefugee Briton priestesses form a colony with a zs of Christians to avoid persecution. The paradox of Mists of Avalon is that these avvalon who are lovers in their past lives are reborn as their own descendants, leading at last to the incestuous pairing of Morgaine fe Arthur, which of course results in Mordred, who wrecks tragedy on everyone.
If they’d only been less careful in preserving Arthur’s bloodline, it would have worked out so much better for everyone.
But they just couldn’t stop meddling. I was also a little peeved that they left the poor ‘black swan’ in limbo. Fortunately she’s rescued in the next book, Priestess of Avalon. I really liked it a lot. This story is broken up into three parts, each telling of the lives of three different High Priestesses of Avalon.
I think my favorites were the first and third parts. The first part begins right after The Forest House ends, and the third part is all about Viviane – the Lady in Mists of Avalon – and her upbringing. The second part was kind of slow for me I voluem because there were too many battle scenes. Another thing that was cool about this book was that there was a lot of mystical pagan stuff bolume it, which helped to explain why certain rituals were performed and some of the history behind them.
I would recommend this book to anyone to has already read any of the Avalon books, or anyone who is way into historical fantasy.
I will definitely be grumas the rest of the Avalon books. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This is an interesting story. But I’m not sure I’ll finish it. I’m not quite halfway through it now. Into the second part. There are 3 parts, each at least a couple hundred years apart.
So, each has all new characters. There is definitely a reincarnation theme going on here. That’s just one of the “worldview” issues that has me not so sure I want to keep reading.
