Waiting on Wednesday ~ "Dark Moon of Avalon"

Sponsored by "Breaking the Spine". This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Dark Moon of Avalon, by Anna Elliott

Dark Moon of Avalon, Book Two

Dark Moon of Avalon: A Novel of Trystan & Isolde is scheduled for release in May 2010. This is book two in Anna Elliotts' Avalon trilogy. I LOVED her Twilight of Avalon novel, and my review & Anna's guest post can be found here.

From the Prologue:

I have been a tear in the air,
I have been the dullest of stars.

I have been a course, I have been an eagle.
I have been a coracle in the seas.

Little more than the words remains, now, of the wisdom of the Old Ones. A wisdom that once allowed men to read the future in the flight of birds, or walk unharmed across a bed of burning coals. All that remains of Avalon, now no place in this world, but only a name in a harper's tale. A faint, mist-shrouded echo of what once was Britain's most sacred ground. Hidden like the Otherworld behind a veil of glass.
