Short Synopsis
Marion Zimmer Bradley's legendary saga of Avalon's extraordinary women continues with a tale of fiery visions, a lost king, and a forthcoming destiny.

Full Synopsis
Epic in its sweep and peopled by the remarkable women who have always inhabited Avalon, Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword of Avalon expands the legendary saga that has enchanted millions of readers over the years and is sure to please Bradley's loyal readership and anyone who loves wonderfully told stories of history, myth, and fantasy.

A boy raised in secret after traitors kill his parents will return to Avalon—and when he does, he'll be faced with a formidable task: to prove his worth as a son of the kings and priestesses of his land and lead his followers to victory, wielding the newly forged sword Excalibur.

"The intensity of [Raver's] narration rises and falls with the drama of the plot." ---AudioFile

"Lorna Raver reads with the immediacy and intimacy of a fireside storyteller." ---Publishers Weekly Audio Review

"Along with other titles in the series, this will appeal to lovers of Arthurian and Celtic fantasy as well as fans of Bradley and Paxson." ---Library Journal Starred Review

"A gripping Bronze Age tale.... Paxson's eloquent, strongly visual writing enhances a familiar but compelling story line; fascinating historical detail enhances the tale throughout." ---Publishers Weekly Starred Review
