Mary Stewart does a magnificent job in rendering Merlin the Enchanter into a believable person who not only has faults like every other human, but also has the same needs. In this series, we come to know the legend who was not all smoke and mirrors as others would have you believe, but real man who loves his kinsman and his country and does what he thinks is best by them.

Because this is the third book in a four-book series, it is hard to follow at times. Stewart does a decent job in bringing the events that have happened in the previous installments to light this one and making them seem relevant. But some readers will be left in the dark, especially if they are not familiar with Arthurian legend.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. Stewart has a way with detail that doesn't make her writing feel bogged down, but makes it come to life.

This is a definite read if you are interested in Arthurian lore.

Last in the trilogy of Merlin. Enjoyed the book but having read the trilogy books in quick succession I was getting a bit over exposed and would reocmmend that the trilogy not be read too close together. Loved the different look at Merlin and Camelot.

King Aurthur and his knights. Not really one of my favorite themes but a good book none the less.

Not the best of Stewart's Arthurian cycle, but far better than the first two volumes. Written at a pace that occasionally rises from ponderous to majestic. This one tells of the main years of Arthur's kingship, from his accession to the throne to his acknowledgement of Mordred and the imprisonment of Morgause and Morgan.
