it was ok

I thought this was the weakest of the 4. I missed Merlin as the narrator, and found the story to be uneven. Key developments were glossed over. For example, after Mordred fled back to his homeland, the subsequent reunion with his half brother seemed to come out of nowhere. the fact that he had a 'wife' and son was a total surprise, and barely mentioned again. I also found that the politics and territorial issues, while necessary to the story, were over-emphasized and hard to follow. But most of all, the ending was a let down. After all that foreshadowing throughout the whole series, the final pages seemed distant and tacked on.
