Good, but not as mesmerizing as Mists of Avalon.

Diana L Paxson's use of MZB's notes create a great perquile to the Mists of Avalon

A thoroughly enjoyable tale of how the survivors of Atlantis may have created the pagan goddess religion of early Britain.

Unfortunately, I think the story centered too much on the relationship between Tiriki and Micail. I kept waiting to see how the roles of Damisa and Elara would play out, but nothing happened.

In any case, I am looking forward to reading the prequel to this novel, which is titled the Fall of Atlantis and features Tiriki and Micail's mother, Deoris and Domaris.

Highly recommended.

Great read! True to the spirit of MZB's Avalon series, and Ms Paxson is wonderful. The imagery, characters, and storyline were all wonderful

I actually enjoyed this book. At first it's kinda boring, BUT after the fall of Atlantis it starts to get interesting. I love Reidel. Soooo cute and sweet. I'm thankful I did read the book.

This novel of ancient Britain slots neatly between Bradley's tales of Atlantis and her writings about the mythical Avalon of Arthurian legend. In it, the final destruction of the Atlantean civilization sends a few survivors looking for a new home, which they find in the misty isles. There, Atlantean magic melds with the native lore, and a new and powerful pantheon begins to grow. Frequent readers of Bradley will also note the comparisons between her Atlanteans and Darkovians, with their manipulation of psychic powers to control a physical landscape.
