Never read Bradley before? SHAME ON YOU! I know, she isn't for everyone but I absolutely love her! Bradley strongly had her hands in four of the books, at least:
Mists of Avalon
The Forest House
The Lady of Avalon
Priestess of Avalon
According to her website you should read them like this:
ANCESTORS OF AVALON, FIREBRAND [she wrote this one, too, I just never think of it as part of the series], RAVENS OF AVALON, FOREST HOUSE, LADY OF AVALON (parts 1-2), PRIESTESS OF AVALON, LADY OF AVALON (part 3), SWORD OF AVALON, MISTS OF AVALON, CATCH TRAP
What on EARTH is Catch Trap... Never heard of it or seen it before... I am tempted to try reading them that way, but then I have to wait until December to read Mists of Avalon and that is my favourite... I also am now going to have to find Catch Trap... Anyone read it before?
A magnificent, colorful novel of the circus world of the 1940s and 1950s, rich in detail, bursting with power and emotion.Uh, huh... Well, no wonder I have never heard of it before! I find it really odd that it is grouped in with the Avalon books... Now I really want to read it, but it's, of course, out of print!
Mario Santelli, a member of the famous flying Santelli family, is a great trapeze artist. Tommy Zane is his protege.
As naturally and gracefully as they soar through the air, the two flyers find themselves falling in love. Mario and Tommy share sweet stolen moments of passion, but the real intensity of their relationship comes from their total devotion to one another and to their art.
As public figures in a conservative era, they cannot reveal their love. But they will never renounce it.
A tremendously moving tale, a rich family saga, a wise and compassionate portrait of a special love in a special world.
Okay, did I mention I love Bradley and everyone should read her? Don't think this series is for you? Well, if you like science fiction there is always her Darkover series, which I am determined to start this year! Then, for the paranormal fans out there, we have Ghostlight, Witchlight, Gravelight, and Heartlight.
