Mailbox Monday

Another Monday, Another Mailbox!! This is a feature where we all share with each other the yummy books that showed up at our doors! WARNING: Mailbox Mondays can lead to extreme envy and GINORMOUS wishlists!!

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page, but for the month of August MM is on tour and is hosted by Chick Loves Lit.  

Hello lovelies!  And how is this Monday finding you?  Well, I hope!  I've got just one book to share with you this week, but it's one that I've been waiting for ever since reading Book One in the trilogy last year, which was titled Twilight of Avalon and written by the delightful Anna Elliott. 

Now before I read Dark Moon of Avalon I will be re-reading Twilight of Avalon and will review it as well, since I see now that I never wrote a proper one (bad blogger!).  But trust me, it will be no chore to immerse myself back into the world of Trystan & Isolde!  Quite the opposite!

Dark Moon of Avalon
by Anna Elliott

Release Date:  September 14, 2010

SYNOPSIS:  She is a healer, a storyteller, and a warrior. She has fought to preserve Britain’s throne. Now she faces her greatest challenge in turning bitter enemies into allies, saving the life of the man she loves . . . and mending her own wounded heart. 

The young former High Queen, Isolde, and her friend and protector, Trystan, are reunited in a new and dangerous quest to keep the usurper, Lord Marche, and his Saxon allies from the throne of Britain. Using Isolde’s cunning wit and talent for healing and Trystan’s strength and bravery, they must act as diplomats, persuading the rulers of the smaller kingdoms, from Ireland to Cornwall, that their allegiance to the High King is needed to keep Britain from a despot’s hands. 

Their admissions of love hang in the air, but neither wants to put the other at risk by openly declaring a deeper alliance. When their situation is at its most desperate, Trystan and Isolde must finally confront their true feelings toward each other, in time for a battle that will test the strength of their will and their love. 

Steeped in the magic and lore of Arthurian legend, Elliott paints a moving portrait of a timeless romance, fraught with danger, yet with the power to inspire heroism and transcend even the darkest age.
