At its core it is the story of the Merlin of Britain(reborn)and Lillian, the current Lady of the Lake. It is the story of their love that has triumphed through many lifetimes. The Druids and Priestesses of Avalon, and the Goddess herself have tasked them with nothing less than the continuing safety of those who practice the Old Ways in the aggressive and cruel forced Christianization of their homeland.
The Daughters of Avalon is magnificent reading, and I highly recommend it. Katrina Rasbold is a master storyteller and a gifted writer. I have no doubt that this series will find its place on the shelf between greats authors like Marion Zimmer Bradley and T. H. White.
At times, this put me in mind of Marion Zimmer Bradley's "Mists of Avalon" but it takes place 40 years after the death of King Arthur. The settings and problems of that time period were the same - which, of course, makes perfect sense!
The author is skilled at not only telling the story, but injecting little tidbits of humor which keep an otherwise somewhat depressing time period a lot more enjoyable. No, it's not verbally/linguistically perfect. There are no "thee's and thou's" (thank goodness!). No fake accents. You read it in your own modern voice, but that, for me, makes it an enjoyable read. Nothing slows me down more than trying to figure out how to pronounce some word in Gaelic or language other than American (we haven't used English for years!) or trying to keep up with contrived accents.
In short, I am ready now to read more by this author - both fiction and non-fiction - and know I will thoroughly enjoy the journey!
Kudos to you, Katrina Rasbold! I'm a fan for life!
Miss Rasbold has a gem here. The book is simple in structure, yet complicated in feel. She makes you fall in love with the characters very quickly, and you can almost feel their pain, smell the flowers, and feel the wind on your face. She draws you in, leaving you wanting for more at the end of the book.
Truly, my favorite book in years, I can't wait for her to take us back to the Olde World and into the lives of Lilian and Ophelia, as well as expand on Bran some more. It was such a fast read, it was over before I was ready, leaving me wanting more... Much more.
