New this Month: Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliott

How is it that the Arthurian legends never seem to run out of steam? Hemlines can rise and fall, hairlines can decline and cultural mores can change from generation to generation, but somehow we always come back to the comfort of the grudges, wounds and triumphs of King Arthur’s golden court.

In her debut novel, Anna Elliott focuses on the story of Trystan and Isolde, freshening things up by going back to the roots of the tale. Elliot has based Twilight of Avalon (Touchstone Fireside) on the earliest written versions of the story of a misunderstood queen and her unlikely love.

Twilight of Avalon
is the first novel in an intended trilogy. Elliott is off to a great start here, with a sharp magic that rivals that found in Arthur’s court.
