The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley

Title: The Mists of Avalon

Author: Marion Zimmer Bradley

Call #:  FANTASY BRA

In this retelling of the story of King Arthur, Morgaine (known today as the sinister Morgan le Fay) recalls her version of the events surrounding this legendary tale.  Morgaine is descended from priestesses on the isle of Avalon, and becomes a powerful priestess in her own right.  Her aunt Vivian, who is the Lady of the Lake and skilled in the Sight, manipulates events to achieve (or circumvent?) the future she foresees, to the detriment of many of those involved.
