Stewart's retelling of the Arthurian legend, from Merlin's viewpoint, takes the story to the point of Arthur being named king after Uther's death. It's still marred by a glacial pace and by Stewart's insistence that Merlin is just a mortal man . . . Who has visions, foresees the future, and controls several types of fire.

The best thing I can tell you is, if you like J.R.R Tolkien, you will love this. It has a slow beginning, which can tend to push a reader away, but if you hang in there, it is well worth it. There are many tasks and obstacles that Merlin and his apprentice must overcome, with an action packed conclusion.

The continuing saga of Merlin, the enchanter, as he watches over Arthur. Merlin is haunted by dreams of the Sword of Macsen; he must find it before Arthur needs to lift it to take his place as High King of Britain.
