All the books in the Mists of Avalon series retell of King Arthur's efforts to unite Britain against the Saxon invasion; what's unique, however, is that Bradley's versions are told from the perspective of powerful women characters. Text that invites audio interpretation, Davina Porter's extraordinary narration, and the author's recent publication of the "prequel" to this cult classic all make this production attractive. The conversational quality of the story, along with its vivid images and compelling drama, invites an audio version. Key to this program's success is the skill and versatility of Davina Porter, who flawlessly interprets a large cast of characters. Her voice conveys moods, from anger and menace, to laughter and song, with a facility that seems effortless. The long-standing popularity of this series and Bradley's more recent publication of The Forest House will draw considerable attention to a truly remarkable production.
