Format: Paperback
This is still one of the best retellings of the story of Merlin and Arthur. Mary Stewart opens the curtain on the real world of the time, historically researched, and richly detailed with characters that are real and emotionally true. I'm always wary of Arthurian fantasy - because so many are badly written, fluffy pieces of romantic fallacy. But these captured my historic interest as well as my imagination.

This trilogy is one of my life-long favourites. I first read them in my 20s, and needed to replace my original set that had made about 8 moves with me since then. If you love Arthurian lit, these are the best I've ever read!

The first volume of Lady Stewart's Arthurian saga, which eventually grew to five books (although to me “The Prince and the Pilgrim” is so different as to be really a stand-alone).

Much has been written about this book and I believe all the praise to be richly deserved. Merlin has always been a favourite figure from my childhood study of myths and legends, but for the first time under Stewart's inspired treatment, he really comes to life as a very plausible historical figure. I like the way some of his most celebrated “magic” is presented as the likely product of a highly intelligent and accomplished man with a deep understanding of human nature and the daring to manipulate circumstances to suit the simple reasoning of the masses.

One of the great accomplishments of this narrative is that it creates an historically accurate and highly probable story out of all the sketchy and often contradictory accounts that have reached us. Stewart used her in-depth knowledge of the period and scrupulous research into the available historical sources (particularly Geoffrey of Monmouth's “History of the Kings of Britain”) to weave a complex but coherent tapestry that reads like a thriller. I have just revisited this book for the purposes of reviewing it and it never fails to amaze me how rich and detailed the story is and how completely it draws me in. I can taste the food and feel the texture of fabrics and wet grass. I can follow the historical events and their significance without feeling lectured to. As usual, the sense of place and human perspective are just right.

I own and have enjoyed nearly all of this author's works, but to me the Merlin saga is something higher.

As a French Canadian it sometimes was hard for me to fully enjoy the plot, for every once in a while I had to put away my reading and look up for words I didn't know.
Still, can't wait to read next book

Some of the best books I've ever read. Hollow Hills and Last Enchantment, also. My favorite insight into Merlin and King Arthur. Reading them again from over 20 years ago.

I enjoyed the storyline and the way the narrative is written through the eyes of Merlin. If you enjoy a good fantasy book then you will enjoy this book.
