12 cassette set. Best-selling author Marion Zimmer Bradley skillfully blends enchanting romance, supernatural ritual, and daring exploits in this eagerly-awaited prelude to the blockbuster fantasy series, The Mists of Avalon (RB# 93310, 93345, 93413, 93434). Foreshadowing the mystical birth of King Arthur, Lady of Avalon paints a lush portrait of the turbulence and grandeur of ancient Britain while Rome ruled the Isles. Throughout Britannia, Roman soldiers are destroying those who follow the Druid's time-honored religion. Hoping to save a remnant of the faith, High Priestess Lady Caillean retreats with her band of holy followers to the mist-enshrouded island of Avalon. There she forges a bond with the Sacred King to serve the Great Goddess and to steer Britannia's political forces. As the decades turn into centuries, the High Priestess and her inspired successors work their magic to shape the fortunes of humankind-but even their powerful sorcery cannot control the human heart. Each earthy priestess of Avalon steps colorfully from the pages with Marion Zimmer Bradley's dynamic plotting and Davina Porter's dramatic narration.

It was the first one to be with me in the long rides on the subway, and to keep me entertained in the lonely nights without my family.I really ...
Ms. Bradley doesn't write happy books. Reading this book just makes me hate men. The injustice and undercurrents of evils perpetrated by men causes me frustration and rage. Just thinking about the book angers me.
