Publisher's Summary

He was born to greatness, the son of a Druid bard and a princess of lost Atlantis. A trained warrior, blessed with the gifts of prophecy and song, he grew to manhood in a Britain abandoned by its Roman conquerors - a land ravaged by the brutal greed of petty chieftains and barbarian invaders. Respected, feared and hated by many, he was to have a higher destiny: to prepare the way for the momentous event that would unite the Island of the Mighty - the coming of Arthur Pendragon, Lord of the Kingdom of Summer. This is the second book of The Pendragon Cycle.


What the Critics Say

Excellent Book (Ten Stars)

First this the the 2nd book in the Pendragon, not the 3rd, there are in fact 5 books in this series and even a sequel (Avalon). This is a great book, and tells the story of Merlin, who is both a warrior and a prophet. Stephen Lawhead is a wonderful Chrisitian Fiction/Fantasy writer. He hails on the tradition of George MacDonald (who inspired C.S. Lewis and Tolkien) and Lewis and Tolkien. Don't just read this series, read "The Song of Albion" and the "Dragon King Saga". Should get ten stars if it was possible. **********

Great Book !

Don't miss any of the 3 books in this series. They are all great but I suggest reading them in order, ie. Taliesen, then Arthur, then Merlin.
