4.6 stars in 1,183 Amazon customer reviews

In Marion Zimmer Bradley's masterpiece, we see the tumult and adventures of Camelot's court through the eyes of the women who bolstered the king's rise and schemed for his fall. From their childhoods through the ultimate fulfillment of their destinies, we follow these women and the diverse cast of characters that surrounds them as the great Arthurian epic unfolds stunningly before us. As Morgaine and Gwenhwyfar struggle for control over the fate of Arthur's kingdom, as the Knights of the Round Table take on their infamous quest, as Merlin and Viviane wield their magics for the future of Old Britain, the Isle of Avalon slips further into the impenetrable mists of memory, until the fissure between old and new worlds' and old and new religions' claims its most famous victim.

Tempted. I have the paperback version, which is about three inches thick, but I have yet to read the story.

A classic, looks like time to reread it after I can't remember when.

Yikes.

I believe it is worth mentioning here that the Marion Zimmer Bradley Literary Works Trust is where the royalties go from any sale of MZB's work, and that based on information here [fanlore.org], the person who benefits is Elizabeth Waters, who was romantically involved with MZB for 7 years, and in my humble opinion, likely knew a few things.

Needless to say, I would recommend spending your money somewhere else.

Agreed. I threw out my own copy of her book. I refuse to support any pedophiles or people that enable pedophiles.

I was shocked and saddened to hear about the abuse. The story on its own is still worth a read; if the money is an issue (even though it does not and cannot benefit MZB, who is dead almost 20 years now), check it out from a library.

Thanks for the post, OP. And more thanks to all for the informative links about the abuse.
Kindle refunds are painless when you haven't downloaded the book.
