Diana Paxson continues the Avalon series with this prequel, set at the end of the Bronze Age. The Lady of Avalon rescues the baby Mikantor, the son of a hundred kings and subject of a prophecy that makes him a target of the evil sorcerer Galid. Some of Lorna Raver's male voices, particularly that of Galid, sound a bit strained, but they’re effective portrayals and do not detract from the overall quality of the performance. The intensity of her narration rises and falls with the drama of the plot. Raver clearly reflects the reverence of those who consider the Lady of Avalon their holy priestess and the passionate contempt shown to the lady by Galid.
