Priestess of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley

Priestess of Avalon

Marion Zimmer Bradley

Eilan is the consort of a future Roman emperor but she is also a former Celtic priestess trained in the use of magic and power, a woman at the crossroad between two worlds and two religions. If, like me, you love myth and legend and are interested in history, you will fall under the spell of this gripping story. Watch out for the other books in the Avalon series: Lady of Avalon, the Forest House and the Mists of Avalon.

Extract

I gazed curiously at the woman who sat at the prow, cloaked and hooded in blue. To be a priestess was it necessary to become so detached from human feeling? Corinthius preached detachment as well, but I knew he had a heart beneath his philosopher's robes. When I become a priestess, I will not forget what love is! I promised myself then.
