Great new five star review for Shadow Over Avalon

I’ve always been drawn to Arthurian legend, loving to read about a world inhabited by knights and dragons. This story was no exception – beautifully written, with rich descriptive content and a web of intricately-woven sub-plots. The characters fit perfectly, they are as real as are we – they draw you into their world, make you feel. The two lands, one set under water and the other above the surface are poles apart, which makes for a fascinating read.

Thankfully, fiction enables writers to take the past, reinvent it and create refreshing stories to entertain us. This is pure entertainment. It’s a long book, but well worth the time.

I listened to the first few chapters of this story using Kindle’s text to speech facility – OK, so the pronunciation of names like Ashira was a bit dodgy, but the tinniness actually made the futuristic elements more futuristic – if you get my drift. An audiobook would be a fabulous addition to, as this is a book befitting a regular storyhour.

Wonderful new 5 star review of Shadow Over Avalon

Today must be my lucky day, particularly for this book. Happy dances will commence immediately.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see this story on the big screen, as a major blockbuster, one of these days. “Shadows over Avalon”, Book 1 of the Shadows series, has all the ingredients to make a captivating high concept movie.
Arthur, an incredibly gifted young citizen of the underwater city of Avalon, is so special that he’s under constant scrutiny. Arthur won’t accept the life programmed for him by Avalon’s powers to be, and decides to escape and fight above water with Terrans, against their oppressors, the repulsive and all-powerful Nestines.
In order to prepare for his escape on the surface, Arthur secretly accesses the all-knowing Archive system, and discovers the story of Ashira, the beautiful and fierce War Maid, princess of the surface-world, betrayed by her father, and then by her peers. Ashira’s life is tied to the story of Avalon. But how does Ashira’s life relate to his? Why does he have dreams of a previous life? And what is his real purpose?
C.N. Lesley’s imagination has no limits. The worlds she created are so vivid and well thought out, that the reader’s gets completely immersed in this brilliant tale of lost love, mind games, and science fiction. Very impressive!

Where, oh where is this?

I came across a series of youtube documentaries that follow the old routs on Britain’s oldest map, the Gogh map. In the sixth one it talks about the Arthurian sights. Glastonbury, Tintagel, Pendragon Castle and what sounds like the Wuthaler, a small, mystical lake.The lake is to the left of Pendragon hall and bear in mind the west of this map is what we would call north today.

I will give a signed copy of Shadow Over Avalon to the first person to come up with the exact map references of where this lake is today. Here is a big hint. It is in England.
