Would probably give this 3 and a half stars I liked it but had a harder time getting into it than I expected given how much I remember loving The Mists of Avalon That s one of my all time favorites and one I ve read several times However my most recent re read was probably 20 years ago so maybe my tastes have changed a bit since then Or maybe this one just wasn t uite as good Or maybe I m just pickier now I had mixed feelings about the characters in this one they didn t all seem consistent throughout the book For example by the end of the book I didn t even know who Bendeigid was He seemed totally unlike who he was at the beginning of the book and the book didn t follow his character enough to see the change happening Gaius also fluctuated between representing the best of Rome and being decent and even noble albeit human and being a real slimeballSomething I did like was the cultural and historical setting It was interesting to see the coming of the Romans the growth of Christianity etc from the viewpoint of people at that time Auf einem fremden unbewohnbaren Planeten: Wie ein 15-jähriges Mädchen Auschwitz und Zwangsarbeit überlebte changed a bit since then Or maybe this one just wasn t uite as good Or maybe I m just pickier now I had mixed feelings about the Matahari di Dalam Diri : Muhasabah Al-Ghazali untuk Para Muridnya characters in this one they didn t all seem Tummy Rumble Quake (Mom's Choice Award Winner) consistent throughout the book For example by the end of the book I didn t even know who Bendeigid was He seemed totally unlike who he was at the beginning of the book and the book didn t follow his Sexy Little Knits Chic Designs to Knit and Crochet character enough to see the Travelog change happening Gaius also fluctuated between representing the best of Rome and being decent and even noble albeit human and being a real slimeballSomething I did like was the Man of Malaysia Writing in Asia Series cultural and historical setting It was interesting to see the Hat Madness coming of the Romans the growth of Christianity etc from the viewpoint of people at that time

Review The Forest House Avalon #2

The Forest House Avalon #2 Free read Å 2 Marion Zimmer Bradley é 2 Summary Warleader gifted with visions and marked by fate to become a priestess of the Forest HouseBut fate also led Eilan to Gaius a soldier of mixed blood son of the Romans sent to subdue the native British For Gaius Eilan felt forbidden love and her terrible secret will ha. I expected to like this book better than I did since I loved Mists of Avalon The story is pre Arthur and as a story it had a lot of possibilities Somehow it seemed kind of disjointed It is the story of Eilan who is the daughter of a Druid during the time when the conuering Romans are taking over the land I just could never really connect with Gaius the soldier that Eilan falls in love with and whose live is entwined with hers He was a mere human after all and I suppose I wanted him to be above the ambition and life that was calling him I think part of what I did not care for is that this book is full of tragedy I realize it was a tragic time so perhaps there is a great deal of realism in the story but it was not a fun read I was never tempted to stop reading so it did hold my interest and in the end I do not regret that I read it Two stars means it was okay and I would agree with that I might have given it 2 12 if I couldADDITION Now reading the third book Lady of Avalon I see now why I needed to read this one even though I did not like it as well as the one I am 23 of the way through now nor as well as Mists of Avalon which is a real favorite
