The best The Song of Rhiannon Creat Evangeline Walton are Book Evangeline Walton was the pen name of Evangeline Wilna Ensley, an American author of fantasy fiction She remains popular in North America and Europe because of her ability to humanize historical and mythological subjects with eloquence, humor and compassion.. A retelling of The Mabinogion in novel form Manawydon finally unites with Rhiannon an aspect of the Goddess but his happiness is shaken by the appearance of the Gray Man, who seeks vengeance against the living and especially against one who would claim the Goddess.. A viral Books The Song of Rhiannon The Song of Rhiannon, a retelling of the Third Branch of the Mabinogion, isn't as powerful as The Children of Llyr, which is a relief, in a way. There's a time of healing for the characters, as well as what they suffer during the action of the story, and there's 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 can't remember anything in the Mabinogion about some of the elements she introduces, e.g. about Pryderi's father, but they all seem to belong quite naturally.If I didn't already care about Pryderi, Rhiannon and Manawydan, though, I don't 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 can't, to my mind.I have serious love for her version of Manawydan, in all his wisdom and dignity and his love for his land.
