The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Twilight of Avalon (Twilight of Avalon #1) by Anna Elliott

 



On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. 


Happy Friday everyone!  This week I'm spotlighting one of my current Mythothon books, Twilight of Avalon (Twilight of Avalon #1) by Anna Elliott.  I can't resist an Arthurian related retelling and this retelling of Tristan and Isolde set after the fall of Camelot looks great.

Beginning: 

I am a singer, I am steel.
I am a druid, I am a serpent.
I am love.

So I say to call the visions into the scrying bowl.

56:

The touch seemed to quiet the boy somewhat, for his sobs slowed.  Beneath the bruises and the sheen of sweat and tears, his skin was dead white, but he drew a ragged breathe and looked up at the other man with red-rimmed eyes.

  2. I also love an Arthurian legend and re-telling and what happens next. This series does seem very nice. I don't think I know it! Will go and take a look on Goodreads now.

    Thanks for sharing and have a good weekend!
