The Children of Llyr by Evangeline Walton [FIRST EDITION / SECOND PRINTING] 1974
The Children of Llyr by Evangeline Walton [The Mabinogion Tetralogy #2]
FIRST EDITION / SECOND PRINTING  BALLANTINE BOOKS
Vintage paperback in very good condition. Tight and seemingly unread copy w/ tanning to pages. Cover has a cut corner on back and some chipping to edges. Otherwise excellent.
In stark, gaunt prose, it chronicles the years of Bran the Blessed - he who was so vast a man that no house could hold him nor ship bear his bulk - and of the tale of his beloved sister Branwen, his brother Manawyddan, and of his half-brothers Nissyen and the ghastly Evnissten. It is a tale of change and storm, of love beyond death, of high courage, of the end of an era - and the beginning of another. It is epic fantasy in its purest form - marvellous in its compass and power.
