The Arthurian legends have always intrigued me. To me they are epitome of romance and adventure. I was very pleased to read a novel about this very interesting subject.

It is the first century, and Britain is threatened by Roman invaders. Emrys

This is book one of an intended three book series and I'm definitely looking forward to them! I thoroughly enjoyed the authors take on Arthurian Legend. Here, Merlin is set in the first century Britian and we see him grow up to take on the quest of finding the lost Excalibur and struggle with his "sight". The story is well thought out and cetainly well delivered, you will see the extensive knowledge of Arthurian Legend behind the tale as well as recognizing someone who has a gift of vocabulary. ...more
