"An enthralling reworking of myth and a haunting vision of love and loss unmatched in contemporary fantasy." (Eric Brown THE GUARDIAN)
Much of Avilion's power lies in the way it's told. The prose is simple, vivid, urgent quality from rhythm and sound and the cumulative effect of short sentences. It's also sprinkled with phrases that resonate in the imagination like bard song, whose imagery is rooted in woodland. With its emphasis on endings, renewal and the inexorable power of story, this a fitting intensive revisiting of the world and themes of Mythago Wood. (Nic Clarke SFX)
"The plot is as rich and inventive as ever (the wealth of possibilities contained in this primeval, haunted woodland seems inexhaustible), but the tone is lighter, with a wider range. There's even space for a few jokes, and many surprises. This is a wonderful, grown-up fantasy about growing up and moving on, and going home." (Lisa Tuttle THE TIMES)
"Avilion is quintessentially British fantasy, and a compelling and beautiful read. Like the wood, it is dark and dense and every detail counts; it is a mark of Holdstock's quality that in the hands if any lesser writer this novel would have been twice as long." (David V Barrett FORTEAN TIMES)
Robert Holdstock gave up his career in medical zoological research to be a full-time writer. His first novel of Ryhope Wood, MYTHAGO WOOD, won the World Fantasy Award. He died in 2009.
