    It was a time of legend, the last shadows of the mighty Roman conqueror faded from the captured Isle of Britain. While, across a vast sea, bloody war shattered a peace that had flourished for 2,000 years in the doomed kingdom of Atlantis. This is the remarkable adventure of Charis, the courageous princess from Atlantis who escapes the terrible devastation of her land, and of the fabled seer and druid prince Taliesin, singer at the dawn of the age. It is a story of an incomparable love that joins two astonishing worlds....

    John says: "A Classic interpretation of a Classic tale"
    "Long but very good story"
    Overall

    I loved this book. The narrator could have been better chosen but don't let that keep you from hearing this book (Frederick Davidson does the rest of the Lawhead's Pendragon Cycle and does a much better job.)

    It is a long book with a lot of attention to detail. However, this adds to the feeling that you are peeking into the lives of people who really existed. It is a believable Authorian Legend Telling.

    The book starts off telling two separate and seeming unrelated stories that almost unexpectedly merge together into a gripping tale of the power of faith, love, and destiny (with some magic thrown in for good measure.)

    I continued through Lawhead's Pendragon Cycle (Merlin and Author are the best books but this one sets them up.) Read them in order Taliesin, Merlin, Author, and Pendragon (the forgotton war).
