Publisher Description

The magical saga of the women behind King Arthur's throne.

“A monumental reimagining of the Arthurian legends . . . reading it is a deeply moving and at times uncanny experience. . . . An impressive achievement.”—The New York Times Book Review


In Marion Zimmer Bradley's masterpiece, we see the tumult and adventures of Camelot's court through the eyes of the women who bolstered the king's rise and schemed for his fall. From their childhoods through the ultimate fulfillment of their destinies, we follow these women and the diverse cast of characters that surrounds them as the great Arthurian epic unfolds stunningly before us. As Morgaine and Gwenhwyfar struggle for control over the fate of Arthur's kingdom, as the Knights of the Round Table take on their infamous quest, as Merlin and Viviane wield their magics for the future of Old Britain, the Isle of Avalon slips further into the impenetrable mists of memory, until the fissure between old and new worlds' and old and new religions' claims its most famous victim.

Vivid, detailed imagining

I first read this book about 15years ago and it has stuck with me. By far my favorite telling of the story of King Arthur and his Camelot.

Transportive

This book was a pleasure to read and the mysterious themes have stuck with me in the years since I read it, often coming to mind and sense at random times in my own life. There’s romance, action, politics, and religious theory woven into a beautifully written medieval setting setting. This book poses questions that only the reader can decide upon, making for a fun, thought provoking read. Will definitely read this again one day.
