Product description

Review

‘Delightful … richly-detailed characterisation’ SFX

‘An absorbing read’ Starburst

Praise for the Avalon series:

‘A most original interpretation of the matter of Britian by way of Celtic religion and the Great Mother… a remarkable feat of imagination’
Mary Renault

‘I loved the book so much I went out and bought it for a friend, and have told many people about it. Why did no one ever think before to tell the story of King Arthur from the perspective of the women!’
Jean Auel

‘A pillar of the fantasy field, Bradley here combines romance, rich historical detail, magical dazzlements, grand adventure and feminist sentiments into the kind of novel her fans have been yearning for’ Publishers Weekly

‘The best retelling of the Arthurian saga I have ever read. Completely compelling’ Isaac Asimov

So, was really excited to get this book. Arrived on the day it was meant to, wonderful.
Unfortunately, when I opened it, there was a surprise. Instead of the Ancestors of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, as per the cover, inside was actually a Dean Koontz book called Shadowfires!
