It really doesn’t make a lot of sense. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. View all 4 comments. Perhaps I was expecting more “Merlinish” things but there was little that happened in this merlun. Again, this was such a disappointing take on a much-loved story so full of opportunities for literary gold. Now admittedly it’s not the Roman Catholic horror that’s called, very puzzlingly, Christianity it’s not ; but the whole subject area grates on me when presented to me as An Undelniable, Inevitable Progressive Event.

The final bit that’s supposed to lead into the rest of the series is just as manufactured – the Atlantian king’s adviser and second daughter, Morgan sorry, ‘Morgian’ are probably responsible for Merlon death.


And if I don’t rush to add the sequel to my to-read shelf, it’s only because there are too many books there already; eventually, I would like to follow up on this series.

I’m sure this isn’t a reflection on the actual story its self as i thoroughly enjoyed the first. It captured my interest as a good book should; particularly the character of Merlin himself intrigued me.

Atlantis, according to Plato who apparently created the legend out o While the above Goodreads description of this book reads like it was a publisher’s book-jacket blurb and it probably was!

I have read and listened to at least 6 times and have always found something I might have missed when I first listened. Rarely have I had such a strong negative reaction to a book.

Merlin (The Pendragon Cycle, #2) by Stephen R. Lawhead

The style the book is written in is amazing. To put it bluntly, that’s not believable.

Mar 05, Erika rated it liked it. As surely as I am breathing this account of Arthurian legend is the most forthcoming. Arthur and his host have no recourse but to take up the challenge. Sin que lo sepa Arturo ni sus leales guerreros ni su adorada Gwenhwyvar It was well done, and a fun read, but I expected better from Lawhead.

I didn’t know that in some old Welsh tales, they were brothers, rather than Galahad being Lancelot’s son. Merlin sounded like a toffee nosed snob who looked down on everyone and spoke with distain.
