The first in a five book fantasy epic originally published in 1987 played out against a backcloth of Roman Britain and Celtic legend. Atlantis is lost. From the holocaust comes Charis, Lady of the Lake, whose love for the Druid prince Taliesin bridges and unites two worlds. The story of a lost continent, the Fair Folk of Britain, and Britain's greatest bard. This engrossing series weaves Arthurian tales with those of the lost realm of Atlantis across a huge range of characters and places and is highly recommended.

Synopsis

Taliesin by Stephen Lawhead

A magnificent tale which begins with the tragedy of Atlantis and the arrival in Britain of King Avallach. In this world, Celtic chieftains struggle for survival in the twilight of Rome's power, and one heroic figure towers over all, the Prince Taliesin, in whom is the sum of human greatness. This is a tale of a love that spawns the miracle of Merlin and Arthur and a destiny that is more than a kingdom.
