very wonderful book, it makes you scared and exited. it truly is good, it makes you wonder a million times what's going to happen. It's like when you read a bit before bed your head is like its going to explode at all the thing that can happen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Like the previous episode tie-ins, this book was a fun read and had a few interesting looks at what went on in between some of the senes in the show. As a big Arthur/Guinevere fan I especially enjoyed their scenes.

I also liked how it fleshed out Merlin and Gaius's relationship as well as Arthur and Uther's.


There were a few grammatical errors in the book, but overall they didn't detract from the book.

This is a book from the TV show Merlin. It is based on the episode of the same name. These are meant for younger readers and I think they would enjoy it even if they have never seen the TV series. I enjoy them because it delves a little deeper into the episode and it is a nice easy read just what I sometimes need.

It is faithful to the show and the voices of the characters comes through clearly.

I think both the TV show and the books are a great introduction to the Arthurian mythos.

Contrary to the title, this book is not about the end of series five.
Cute book, I enjoyed it.

I really love this episode and love to hate it too. Because no matter how many times I watch it I always worry for Arthur and Merlin. Reading this was no different of an experience.
