(Spoiler alert!!!!!!!!!!!!) Most reviews that I had read about Avalon before purchasing the book described it to drag on and ultimately bore the reader. While the book does at times seem to go on and endlessly describe an event, place, etc, it is a must read for any historical fiction lover. Readers are guaranteed to become emotional after reading about Rumon's relentless search for Merewyn after he discovers his love for her. His ultimate loyalty to her and the decision to become a monk after discovering Mereywn is married to someone else prove just how devoted a lover and person Rumon can be. It is my second favorite book and much better than any other love story.

The main characters are not developed well by the author.   The historical information was readable,  but I wished I hadn't read the first chapter because it was so drawn out and lacked any information as to the reasons the main characters would even love the other.  Dull character development.  Do not read.   Read the Tea Rose instead.

I have loved this book for years! Was thrilled to see the Nook book on sale, as my beloved paperback copy was falling apart. I definitely recommend it for all lovers of historical fiction.

If you like historical stories this is a good book. It is not weighed down with politics or useless information about characters that are not important. Seton does a good job at keeping you involved in the characters lives. Great book hard to put down if you like Katherine this is another good one!

Wow what a book. What looked almost like nothing more than a romance novel, turned out to be much much more. If historical fiction is an interest of yours, then try this book. The setting is 10th century England, and its filled with colorful characters, steady and dynamic plot lines, and above all a plausible historical backdrop. The suggestions concerning North America I found fascinating. I will certainly read more by Mrs Seton, as this book is a winner

I read this book right after reading the amazing novel 'The Winthrop Woman'. Avalon lacks the depth and character development of Seton's other work. I was greatly disappointed by the book largely due to the fact that Setons' work is generally spellbinding. Overall a lackluster novel.

I read this one right after I finished Katherine, which I adored. This one was boring, historically absurd, and neverending. Generally I recommend Anya Seton as an author, but this was not her best.

This is one of the few books that I have truly been drawn to out of pure joy in seeing someone write about the early Middle Ages. I loved it so much after reading it in my schools library that I had to get it for my own collection.

This is another of Anya Seton's great historical novels Set in tenth century Britain. Why is it out of print??? My paperback is worn out, and I need a hardcover! If you liked Katherine and Green Darkness you'll like this too.

I read this book many, many years ago when my mother purchased it from her 'Book of the Month' club. I loved it so much that I now have that original hardcover copy on my bookshelf. I've re-read it twice over the years. There are very few well- written novels about this period of history. Describing it as a love story sells it much too short.
