Twilight of Avalon Trilogy is made up of three books - Twilight of Avalon, Dark Moon of Avalon, and Sunrise of Avalon - and is about a story of impossible love between Trystan and Isolde in the time following King Arthur's death. Their story begins when the two of them are childhood best friends and ends, well I won't tell you how their story ends.
Set in a medieval time of turmoil after the death of the High Queen, the King's Council must come together first to decide upon a new High King and then, with the help of Isolde, to fight against the enemy Saxons to save their lands from destruction. The journey for both the armies and impossible lovers starts in book one and culminates on the last page of book three, and while the historical fighting story was fascinating, I really kept reading the books to see how and if Trystan and Isolde would meet again.
I'm not real familiar with the story of Trystan and Isolde so I couldn't tell you if these books stayed true to that story. If it didn't, I really don't care because I loved their story. At times I was frustrated with Trystan for being so hard on himself, but I loved how they both did what they had to for themselves, their country, and each other. There were various times in the book when I honestly didn't know what was going to happen so I had to read the next page to find out. And those are the kind of books that I enjoy the most.
I highly enjoyed these books and would highly recommend them to anyone who likes a good medieval tale full of romance, fighting, and suspense. 4 stars.
