This book is about the society of preistesses before Avalon, called The Forest House. It is an amazing story that is tied in with The Mists of Avalon in a very subtle way (That is, until the very end or also in the beginning of Lady of Avalon). The characters stay with you just as much (if not more) than the characters of The Mists of Avalon, hundreds of years away (about 400 I think). However, like The Mists of Avalon, there is an end to old traditions and the beginning of new ones. There is also a common theme of clashing religious traditions, this time being that of Pagan Britain ways and Pagan Roman ways (Christianity plays very, very little in this book). Even though there are some common themes it is still a very different book from The Mists of Avalon and I would reccommend it to anyone, not just fans of the Avalon series.

I absolutely loved this book. It was written quite well and the characters were truly intriguing. It would be nice if all authors had her ability. Ther world would be a better place.

After I picked up this book I could not put it down. Marion Zimmer Bradley does a beautiful job at creating a love story in the midst of a time of warring cultures. She has strongly devoloped characters that made me feel their emotions and writing was so descriptive and real I felt like I was watching the scenes right in front of me. This book was one of the best I've ever read.

This is the first book I read out of the Avalon trilogy and it gave me a fresh perspective about early Britain and pre-Christianity religion. It is an extremely insightful book when you read between the lines!

I was so captivated by the Mists of Avalon, I went to the bookstore the moment I finished it hoping to find more of her Bradley's words. It was there I found there were three others in the series, and after much debating with the clerk, found the Forest House to be the first of three prequals (the second being the Lady of Avalon and the third being the Priestess of Avalon). The Roman names were at first difficult to manage but the nifty key in the beginning made me less cautious. It took me about 50 pages or so to get into the rythym, as I remember happening with the Mists of Avalon, but after that, I was hooked. The details paint the picture in my mind, without dragging on, and the sudden compression of timely and astounding events into a paragraph or two always catches me off guard and leaves me stuttering.

Excellent book for any history buffs out there. Yes, its a novel but it also shows some history of the Romans. I enjoy her books.
