My husband has been after me to read these books for years; they're some of his favorites. However, since I don't really like fantasy, I've resisted.

The first book is The Crystal Cave, the second is The Hollow Hills, and the third is The Last Enchantment. They are the story of Merlin the Magician and King Arthur. Mary Stewart, the author, is an excellent writer and, though the story is based on legend, it is historically accurate as far as possible.

I told a friend who had read these books years ago that I liked them because they're not really fantasy. She raised an eyebrow and said, "Nancy...they are fantasy!"

I'm now reading the fourth book in the series, which is about Mordred, Arthur's son.

You might be able to find these books printed as a trilogy, but they are probably easier to find printed individually.
