The Mabinogion is to Welsh mythology what the tales of Zeus, Hera, and Apollo are to Greek myth. these tales constitute a powerful work of the imagination, ranking with Tokien's Lord of the Rings novels and T.H. White's The Once and Future King.

The Mabinogion is internationally recognized as the world's finest arc of Celtic mythology; Walton's vivid retelling introduces an ancient world of gods and monsters, heroes, kings and quests, making accessible one of the greatest fantasy sagas of all time.… (mere)

These four books (_The Island of the Mighty_, _The Children of Llyr_, _The Song of Rhiannon_ and _The Prince of Annwn_) tell a timeless story. As we read about these ancient folk and their legends, we realize that history truly does repeat itself and that we are and always will be much the same. ( )

Evangeline Walton’s books about the Isle of the Mighty are a magical read. She based her stories on the Mabinogi, a set of myths and legends written sometime in the twelfth century, and her language use fits with the timing of the original. She has a gift for word usage that makes her stories seem otherworldly — as, indeed, several of them are. I liked some better than others, but they are, in all, a good set of fantastical literature.

An entertaining look at pre-Roman history. ( )

Beautifully written novels based on Welsh mythology, enlightening and mesmerizing. Walton moves effortlessly from the realm of "real time" and history into the Bright and Dark lands of the Otherworld, and back again--giving the reader a taste of a time when these were more than just obscure tales of magic, but the essential stuff of community and personal life.
