Bradley, Marion Zimmer: The The Mists of Avalon

Del Rey, New York NY 1982 ISBN 0-345-33385-3

This book has become a classic, the first of many modern novels to fictionalise the Arthurian legend. Bradley weaves her usual masterly tale, this time exploring the story of Morgan Le Fey, here called Morgaine of the Faeries. She is depicted as a priestess of the Goddess who uses everything in her power to try to save her faith as her brother the King falls more and more under the sway of the Christian priests. Compelling and evocative; creates a world more real than the shadows of history offer us. ~WS
