Format: Paperback
I had expected this book to be filled with myth and legend and high drama spiced with a nice Authrian love story. It was all I expected. While I do not place Zettel among my favorite spinners of historical fiction (Laurence J. Brown, Bernard Cornwell, Parke Godwin to name a few), she definately has her place among my favorites of Arthurian lore and Marion Zimmer Bradley is not bad company to share!

Zettel tells the story of Elen and Geraint, the rise and fall (in some cases) rise again of kingdoms and kings, loves and enemies and she weaves it all together in a tapestry of lore that kept me guessing and happily turning pages to find the outcome. She repeats many ongoing themes and often it becomes a little long - the continual description of Elen's cold, emptiness is the prime example. (You'll have to read the tale to find the reason) Even though repetitions like this did make the book a tiny bit longer than may have been necessay and did cause it to slow in parts, the story is definately strong enough to keep you interested. Noticeably absent from an Arthurian tale was Arthur, Merlin and most of the court of familiars. They make minor cameos, but the story didn't really need them and I found their absence refreshing. Geraint and Elen were strong enough characters to carry the story on their own.

If you want a story of more historical acuracy - stick to Brown. If you enjoy a little magic and a story that I imagine would rival the bards of old, this is a fun read.

If I could possibly rate this novel more than five stars I would! The battle for Britain does indeed continue in this splendid Arthurian rendering!
Elen is the daughter of a deceased Welsh chieftain, her mother rules in his stead. However, Urien, their neighbor does not want them to ally themselves with King Arthur of Camelot and devises a cruel strategy of enscorellment for Elen in league with his lover, Morgaine. Sir Geraint comes into the picture during the disagreement between Elen's Mother and Urien as he was already there on an embassy from King Arthur.
Elen and Geraint's adventures continue with the quest to find a magical spear that once belonged to the "tylwyth teg" or shinning ones. It is being held by a king of another realm who doesn't wish to give it up and is the only weapon that will defeat Urien.
This is a stand alone novel and is the second of her Arthurian titles, the first being: "In Camelot's Shadow" (also very enthralling)! This is an excellent author who knows how to keep her readers riveted to every page! Read it, you will not be disappointed!

Format: Paperback
In the time of upheaval as Arthur seeks to solidify his reign, a young girl stands between the High King and darkness. After her family is betrayed and murdered, Elen vows revenge, but soon finds herself a pawn in the plots of an evil sorceress, Morgaine Le Fay. Though a gaes pushes her towards treachery and doing what she hates, the love of one man, Geraint, a noble knight of the Table Round, calls to her with salvation. Yet, Geraint is not without a hidden past of his own.

*** In this sweeping epic, magic, betrayal, and love take centre stage. Minor characters from the familiar saga come to the fore, proving that their roles have as much worth as the famous triangle and Grail quest. ***

Format: Paperback
Here is the second of Zettel's series involving the nephews of Arthur.

Geraint is, here, the second nephew of Arthur and brother to Gawain. A definite change from his place in the legends and also the tale diverges from that of Geraint and Enid. In fact it bears very little resemblance to it at all. It has little to do with that tale's portrayal of husbandly mistrust and testing of love. Rather this is another tale of the knight coming to the rescue of a much persecuted lady.

The lady in question is Elen who is a daughter of Wales, whose entire family has been murdered by their war-like neighbour Urien. Who tried to force her mother to reject Arthur's overtures and side with his making war against Camelot. Elen herself would have met the same fate, but for her being called into the elvish realm to aid its queen in a dangerous childbirth.

At the back of Urien is Morgaine the evil enchantress who is also his lover. She sees Elen's own magic as a threat and horrifically imprisons her heart in the breast of a hawk. Elen is also under the behest of whoever controls the bird - Urien.

Somehow she uses her magic to send a massage to Merlin, begging Arthur's aid. He promptly sends Agravaine and Geraint.

Geraint, however, is determined to do more than gather information and becomes Elen's saviour. After their escape they then quest for a magic spear to free Elen and kill Urien.

This a fast tale, full of wonderfully realized magic that is both believable and dreadful. Elen and Geraint move through several realms and have to grope their way through many deceits and the machinations of various powers on their quest.

So now I am again left waiting eagerly for part three. Agravaine next I hope.
