** spoiler alert ** I love this. Avalon is a beautiful story about searching for the unknown while finding yourself along the way (at least that's how I saw it). I love the time period it was set in: ancient history in modern eyes. Old England, the mountains of Iceland, the 'founding' of Greenland, King Edgar, Leif Erickson - all the best.
The only part I didn't like was how Merewyn and Rumon didn't end up together in the end. After spending the entire book rooting for them, the letdown disappointed me way too much.
5 outta 5.
