Solid take on the mythology

This book continues the great characterization of Merlin. I like very much how the pieces of mystery and memory come together. The novel-length plot and the bigger plot work together well and the book comes to a satisfying ending while leaving room for the next story to develop. Definitely looking forward to book 3.

Enjoyable read. Merlin continues to face unknown foes and is forced to trust parts of himself with others. Relationships develop and we learn more of Merlin's past. I look forward to the 3rd book of this series.

If you catch her in person, she will eagerly discuss Lord of the Rings ad nauseam, why the ancient Sumerians are so cool, and the important role of phytoplankton in the ocean.
