Read full description of the books:
“I am nothing, yes; I am air and darkness, a word, a promise. I watch in the crystal and I wait in the hollow hills. But out there in the light I have a young king and a bright sword to do my work for me, and build what will stand when my name is only a word for forgotten songs and outworn wisdom, and when your name, Morgause, is only a hissing in the dark.”
This book is full of quotable quotes like the above and The Legend of Arthur & Merlin is one of the great tales off all time, but unfortunately this book is a flawed diamond.
The main problem for me was the very slow start. Book 2 in particular really dragged in parts. At it's worst it reminded me of some of Georgette Heyer's leaden writing in her medieval books. I think both authors struggled going back so far in time.
When Arthur reentered the book the story improved very much. I really like the way Arthur was depicted. By book 4 the writing was reminding me of J.R.R. Tolkien. This was a good thing - I'm a massive LOTR fan.
The read of the final book flew by for me and I'm going to try to read the third part by the end of May. I think I would have enjoyed this book more if the read was closer to my read of
Bear that in mind when you read this review. :)
