Iris of Avalon (Seven Sisters of Avalon #4)
Lillian, the Lady of the Lake, and Bran, the Merlin Reborn, send their seven magical daughters into the seven kingdoms of Britain in a final effort to preserve the ancient forms of worship and protect those who revere the Goddess from the oppression inflicted by the rising power of the new Christian religion. Once in the "Britain Beyond," the princess priestesses face battles that will challenge their faith, redefine who they are, and propel them toward their own manifest destinies. In doing so, they also reshape the future of Britain, as well as Avalon.
The Daughters of Avalon begins the series with the story of Bran and Lillian, while Rose of Avalon, Aster of Avalon, and Iris of Avalon tell the stories of their daughters who go into the seven kingdoms of Britain to return magic to the land and liaison with the country's leaders to protect the people of the Goddess. Each year, a new Seven Sisters of Avalon book releases for a total of eight books in the series.
In this volume, Iris, a healer and midwife, journeys to Tintagel in Cornwall where her many greats grandmothers, Ygraine and Morgan, both reigned. She pledges to wed King Marcus, which means she also must tame his wild child daughter, the princess next in line to sit on the Cornish throne.
King Marcus, a staunch Christian, awakens passions in Iris she never knew existed and through a traumatic turn of events, places her on a path that winds through tales both new and familiar to the reader.
Although Iris of Avalon stands on its own as a beautiful, fast-paced story, reading the first four Sisters of Avalon books for background may enhance the reader's enjoyment of the series.
