Lavondyss (original 1988; edition 1991)
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765307316, Paperback)
A haunting entry in the World Fantasy Award-winning Mythago Cycle
In Mythago Wood, Robert Holdstock gave us an intricate world spun from the stories of Irish and English mythology, a great forest steeped in mystery and legend, whose heart contains secrets that will change all who behold them.
Young Tallis is one such seeker. When she was just an infant, she lost her brother Harry to Ryhope Wood. Her adolescent fancies now cause her to suspect that he is still alive---and in grave danger. Tallis follows Harry into the primal Otherworld armed only with magic, masks, and clues left by her grandfather. Eventually the primitive forest gives way to Lavondyss itself, a fascinating and terrible realm where she is forced to confront the mythagos, physical manifestations of the legends of humanity's collective unconscious.
Join Tallis on her quest into the ultimate unknown, and be invited into one of the finest and most compelling mythologies you will ever encounter.
"A stunningly good book . . . conveys the haunting power of old heroes and lost gods."
"Magical . . . It is rare to find a sequel which measures up to its original; but Lavondyss surpasses it."
