Avalon...where strong, courageous women prepare to defend the world that is theirs.

Fleeing from Camelot and Arthur's anger, two desperate riders reach the sea to meet the waiting boats. In their care is a baby girl - whose destiny is to rule the fabled Isle of Avalon as Lady of the Lake.

Named Argante - brilliant one - she will grow to womanhood with her soul-friend, Elin. As one of the Daughters of the Goddess, her duty is to watch over the Celtic Realms of Ireland, Britain, and Gaul.

Against her stands a fearsome foe, dark sister of the Goddess Mother, Annis the Hag, Queen of the Wastelands.
The stain of evil has swept over the mainlands as Annis, her dreadful Grey Host at her command, brings bloody war and pestilence to the once fruitful kingdoms.

Now, only Argante and the Daughters of Avalon, stand between Annis and her complete dominion over the Celtic Realms...
Avalon..a sumptuous tale, a richly detailed, vivid tapestry of a time when women reigned supreme.
