Overall The Pendragon Murders was a good book. The title gave away what was supposed to be a mystery solved at the end, which is a pretty big spoiler provided by the author. I was also disappointed with the effort the author put in on occasion, as when Merlin was speaking in Latin, it was clearly the few Latin phrases the author knew eg. Caveat emptor - very shallow effort because Merlin is well travelled and well read and I presume well versed in Latin.

The mystery was quite good despite the tit

I found this on our last travels to WA State. New author and mystery to me, so now I need to locate the first two in the series.

Interesting idea but some of the anachronisms got to me - Merlin talking about conscious and unconscious brain and his arthritis. Were those terms around in 600AD?? I don't think so. I'll still look for the earlier books.

I found this book incredibly amusing. It reminded me of the show BBCs Merlin. Everyone bickering , Arthur having a bunch of illegitimate sons, Nimue masquerading as a boy. It was all very funny. Then again I enjoy sarcasm and bickering characters. There wasn't really much of a mystery aspect , but I still found it a wonderful read. It's a new take on the legends!

It's not a bad story at all, at the traditional / cozy end of the mystery spectrum (not at all cutesy cozy though) but my god everyone is constantly bickering and picking on or at each other / playing or assuming mind games. Relentlessly. Everyone. Did I mention relentlessly?
This book was a selection of the library book club. It was entertaining and enjoyable. Some members objected that this book--set in Arthurian times--didn't use "old" English, but its lack didn't bother me. I like reading about Camelot!

A good way to conclude this series. I have always thought Merlin viewed this way was much more interesting, and if he existed, was probably close to the real thing.
Was excited to find this at the dollar store and had to get it. Now I need to find #2!
