I remember reading this book a couple of years ago and not really liking it. I think I compared it to the "original" Avalon books (by this I mean Mists, Fall of Atlantis and The Forest House, which, at that point were the only ones I had read) too much to really like it on its own merit. You can very much tell it's by another author and I think I held that against it.

This time around, I really liked it. It was a little slow to pick up at first and I found myself wanting the Micail chapters to end soon quite often, but it's a good read. However, I don't think it stands well on its own so it's not a book you can just pick up. You have to have read at least The Fall of Atlantis, otherwise I think you'd find yourself quite lost.
