The Song of Rhiannon by Evangeline WaltonThe Song of Rhiannon, a retelling of the Third Branch of the Mabinogion, isnt as powerful as The Children of Llyr, which is a relief, in a way. Theres a time of healing for the characters, as well as what they suffer during the action of the story, and theres a happy end for them as well. It continues to follow the characters of Manawydan, Rhiannon, Pryderi and Kigva. There are actually few other characters in the story, fleshed-out or not, but the character of the Bogey made me smile quite a bit, as did his interactions with Manawydan.
Once more, Evangeline Walton brings the characters to life. I cant remember anything in the Mabinogion about some of the elements she introduces, e.g. about Pryderis father, but they all seem to belong quite naturally.
If I didnt already care about Pryderi, Rhiannon and Manawydan, though, I dont know how much I would have loved this book. The retelling of the Second Branch is the strongest so far, and can stand alone, but this cant, to my mind.
I have serious love for her version of Manawydan, in all his wisdom and dignity and his love for his land.

It makes sense that what has become Stevie Nicks's signature song was inspired by a kind of ancient magic. Bibliomancy, a mystical practice.

Its US chart peak was in June , when it hit The song is always referred to as simply "Rhiannon" on Fleetwood Mac albums.
