About

I live in New York City and I'm surrounded by books all day and when I go home I have more books waiting for me. Read my "About" page on top to see what I mean. I just want to share my book experiences and my love of all-things-books, with hopefully the occasional review thrown in. If you wish to contact me, the address is polishoutlanderATgmailDOTcom

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Here’s my pick of the week:

Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Sword of Avalon by Diana L. Paxson (Penguin, December 2009)

Summary: 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…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.

Oh I can’t wait for this! I, for some reason, went on Ms. Paxson’s website late last week and found out that a new book was coming out this year! Granted, I have not read Ravens of Avalon yet, but I have read all of the other Avalon books, some have even been rereads! And what a great cover too!

    I will have to look into this series, I loved the TV movie they made. Thanks for the heads up and have a good one.

  • I think we have The Mists of Avalon somewhere around the house – one of my daughters read it. I haven’t read any of this series. Hope this is a good read!
