Marion Zimmer Bradley was the bestselling author of The Mists of Avalon, Lady of Avalon, The Forest House, and The Firebrand, as well as the popular Darkover series of science fiction novels. She died in 1999. Diana L. Paxson, a noted fantasy author who collaborated with Bradley on much of her later work, lives in Berkeley, California. She has written twenty books including the Arthurian novel Hallowed Isle.From AudioFile:
Go back to the second century A.D., when Rome influences all and the "old" religions are struggling to keep their foothold in Britain. The Priestess, who is from the royal House of Avalon, that mysterious island shrouded in mists and magic, marries Flavius Valerius Constantius, who becomes a Roman Emperor, and she becomes the mother of Constantine. As we learn about Roman history, we also see Christianity grasp and then hold sway in the world. Bradley and Paxson add flavor and beauty to this chaotic time in the Roman Empire. Davina Porter tells this first-person tale in voices that alternate between soft and imperial, with slight variations for the men. She brings the magic and mystery to the surface with gentle intonation and fluid narration. As Roman history and Christianity make their marks on the world, Avalon seeks to keep its mists and with them the strength of alternate beliefs about the nature of the world.
