Long-awaited final volume in the Avalon series by bestselling fantasy author, Marion Zimmer Bradley.

As the Merlin of Britannia keeps his vigil atop the Tor of Avalon, Rian, the High Priestess of Avalon, dies giving birth to her fifth child. The girl, named Eilan with her mother’s dying breath, takes life. From the stars the Merlin draws forth her prophecy: ‘The child that was born at the Turning of Autumn, just as the night gave way to dawn, shall stand at the turning of the Age, the gateway between two worlds.’ A prophecy of greatness, but it seems that she is destined to walk a path unlike any trod by a Priestess of Avalon before…

Published posthumously, this spellbinding historical romance is the concluding volume in the Avalon series from Marion Zimmer Bradley, the author of the worldwide bestseller, The Mists of Avalon, who died in 1999.

    I was so pleased to find a title by Marion Zimmer Bradley that I haven't yet read. And so it was a lovely surprise when the package arrived early and the book was in such great quality.I heartily recommend this book to anyone who loves entirely authentic-sounding fantasy! Marion Zimmer Bradley's writing style is extremely beautiful and her historical context is impeccable, making her writing entirely convincing. A beautiful moving book for all ages.

    I've written this review in case like me you have read Mists of Avalon (MOA), want to read more of Marion Zimmer Bradley but fear her other books won't live up to the same standard. Priestess of Avalon does not have the same depth of complex plot, twists and turns as MOA but in my eyes is at no disadvantage because of it. What I wanted from this book was the same breadth of wonderful characters and to be immersed in their world of inner-dialogue with the Divine; to me at least MOA was magical because of each person's connection and communion with the Mystery rather than its plot and how it weaved its spirituallity into the island I live and I am glad to say that the Priestess of Avalon is equally powerful, equally magical.Yes, this book takes you away from Britain and there are times when I skimmed a little quickly over the description of Roman cities but in the end we see the Goddess and her different guises everywhere. From following the tale of a single character throughout, we grow to love Eilan and those she loves. Forget Mists of Avalon for a moment and read this as it deserves to be read; on its own and in its own light, for that light is beautiful.

    Well written and exciting. 20 years after the slaughter of the Druids on Ynys Mon (Anglesey) this covers the events that follow and shape Britain. As a Modern Druid working closely with the modern re-enactor Romans in Chester I found the content of this book very close to my heart. The story flows seamlessly and is gripping all the way. Her knowledge and re creation of the Romano British world and way of life is a joy.
