it was amazing

I read it and I absolutely loved it! I recommend it to anyone and everyone! I am a mythology nerd and I love Arthurian legends. This book blew me away,not because it is based on a theme I enjoy, but also because it gives us a keen understanding of who Merlin's parents were. If you read the book, and you have some background knowledge on King Arthur, you will see that many of the traits in Taliesin are also present in Merlin and later on in Arthur. I loved how it describes Taliesin's desire for a Utopian society and how it mentions this feeling of like, emptiness or like a sting on his heart, because I know that others, like me, have experienced this. Some of us at some point have felt like we have nothing when, really, we have everything we could ask for. If you read my review before reading this book, there's no need to thank me. Grab yourself a copy and ENJOY!
