9780007126842: The Mists of Avalon: Mistress of Magic and The High Queen

‘In my time I have been called many things: sister, lover, priestess, wise-woman, queen’

Morgaine, gifted with the Sight and fated with her brother-lover’s doom, recounts the glorious tragedy of Camelot’s brief flowering – not as a tale of knightly deeds, but as a woman’s rounded view of society in the crucible of change.

Through the lives of pious Guinevere, ambitious Morause, Priestess of Avalon Viviane and her successor as Lady of the Lake, Morgaine herself, this rich and haunting epic reveals a greater threat to the Old People than the Saxons. For the spread of patriarchal Roman ways and a narrow Christianity seem likely to drive the ancient worship of the Mother forever into the mists…
