Enchanting and different approach

  • Jun 27, 2001
These are delightful books. If you enjoy Arthurian legends, and I certainly do, you will love these books. However they are somewhat diffferent to books in this genre as they have Merlin as the central character, and it is a very human and fallible Merlin to boot.

Mary Stewart has shown some masterful skills with these novels. It is rare to read a book about a character and still be aware all along that he or she is not really what it is all about. The historical details are rich and finely painted, and Merlin himself is an entirely believable character - a loner, desperate for friends, and even more desperate to discover the identity of his father - tainted with the stain of bastardry as he is.

All in all they are, in my opinion, the best books of their type.
