In Lisa Lödy’s new fantasy novel Bringing Avalon Back (set in 1000AD Britain), Sage Uberchat realizes she is a magician when she swears to Morgan of the Faeries that she will bring Avalon back. With the help of a magic deck of cards, which can be entered by uttering the sacred word, Sage is driven by forces from the future and past to bring Avalon back. From the Scottish Highlands to the center of Stonehenge; from castle towers to the inner realm of trees, Sage travels in and out of time and space, guided by goddesses and wizards, drawing cards within which even the air molecules are made of magic. Prepare to burst beyond the glaze of what we thought was real. This is a spell far more than a novel and anyone who reads it becomes part of the unprecedented task of bringing a lost world back into reality.
Lisa Lödy was born in upstate New York where as a child she enjoyed nature and spending time in the woods. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a minor in English from Syracuse University. There she learned to hone her craft through writing poetry. This book took her over twenty years to prepare, studying Native American and Druid shamanism and traveling through the United Kingdom. Sage’s magic cards were designed and made by Lödy herself. They helped her write this book, and still exist today.
