Read full description of the books A Espada de Avalon:Na Idade do Bronze, muito antes dos acontecimentos ocorridos em As Brumas de Avalon, o jovem Mykantor, destinado a ser rei, é raptado e vendido como escravo. Comprado por um príncipe ferreiro, aprenderá com ele os fundamentos da liderança, mas a sua ausência precipitará Avalon nas mais cruas lutas de poder.
Sem a oposição do legítimo herdeiro ao trono, o malévolo feiticeiro Galid está determinado a governar, mas Anderle, a Senhora de Avalon, vai desafiando os seus intentos.
A ausência de Mykantor abrirá ainda outras feridas, sobretudo no coração de Tirilan, filha de Anderle, que, julgando-o perdido para sempre, aceitará o poder – e o celibato – do sacerdócio.
Criado em segredo, após o assassínio dos seus pais às mãos de pérfidos traidores, Mykantor regressará a Avalon para provar o seu valor enquanto filho de reis e sacerdotisas, e será chamado a liderar os opositores a Galid brandindo a famosa Excalibur, acabada de forjar para legitimar o seu poder.
A Espada de Avalon é a obra que faltava no universo mítico de Marion Zimmer Bradley, explorando as origens desta lendária e mítica saga que continua a encantar milhões de leitores em todo o mundo.
