I Walked with Melusine through Avalon's Orchard Once again Tyler Tichelaar weaves a riveting story that mixes Arthurian lore with fact and fiction. Melusine’s Gift is skillfully written and is reminiscent of those ancient Tales from the Arabian Nights where one story flows into the next one and that into the next and so on. In this case the stories reveal how the descendants of King Arthur are connected through the isle Avalon. What makes this story fascinating is that the reader is learning about the modern day characters’ relationships to Arthur and Avalon as Anne and Adam do. And while the legendary Roland opens the story, his lineage is revealed through stories told by his father, his grandfather, and his grandmother. As each tale ends, the reader is compelled to turn the page to discover what secrets are revealed next. However gripping each tale is, it is the final paragraph that will grab readers and have them waiting with eager anticipation for the next book Ogier’s Prayer. Tyler includes a peek at Ogier’s Prayer, but I have to confess: I did not read this. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to, but because I knew it wouldn’t be enough! As a recent visitor to Great Britain and Avalon, I loved reading Melusine’s story of growing up in Avalon. I walked among the very apple trees she talks about and climbed the same hill—Glastonbury Tor—she did to see the whole of Britain. In fact, this was probably my favorite part. For me, Tyler’s Arthurian stories always do two things—remind me of how much of Arthurian legend I still have to learn and how much I learn from his stories. For lovers of Arthurian lore, I can’t recommend this series enough.
