Into The Mists of Time and Legend

If you've ever been drawn to the magic and mystery of ancient Britain, pick up a copy of The Circle Cast: The Lost Years of Morgan Le Fay by Alex Epstein. Reading this book, it's easy to feel transported back in time and place. Almost tasting the tang of salt in the sea air and feeling the dampness of fog, we get to know Morgan Le Fay in an intimate way. We see her first as a sweet but strong 11 year old who is exiled from her home, forced into slavery and begin to develop her magical powers. As the years go by and she matures, we see her navigating a world of Druids, early Christians, Romans and the call of the earth's powers of enchantment. Oh, and there is a handsome son of a chieftain as well. This is a story of Arthurian times told from a fresh perspective. We get to know Morgan Le Fay not as the usual angry enchantress, but as a strong and complex young woman.
