The series was an OK read. I did find some things very frustrating, such as; most of the characters in the book seemed to lack communication skills. After months of being separated sisters barely say two words to each other. No one seems to be able or willing to explain what has happened to them. Maybe the lack of real dialogue between main characters was a way to move the plot along but it didn't work for me. I was also bothered by the frequent use of "He/she finally remembered to breath. Once or twice is fine however this phrase was used during almost every action sequence.
Other than these few problems (problems to me and not necessarily any other reader) it was an entertaining read.

Thuis series was definetly different but not as great as many of the others I have read. I must admit I was glad it ended. Not my cup of tea but it still was an okay read, This book was the best of the 3 - maybe because it was the end

A wonderful series! At first I was skeptical about it when I first started, but once I got into the book I couldn't stop! It sucks that there are only 3 books, since I would like to know what happens after the war.

Each book of the trilogy has gotten better. Enjoyed the plot line as well as the growth of the characters. Just noticed that the coming new TV show BELIEVE seems to have a somewhat similar idea they are using as their basic plot

Merlin's Children is the third and final installment in The Children and the Blood series, the first two books of which I loved! However, I found Merlin's Children had a slower pace than the previous two stories and because of this I found the plot dragged and it was hard to fully engage with in places.
Megan Joel Peterson initially chooses to concentrate on the reconciliation between Cole and his father. We see Cole change before our eyes, from the protective and caring 'big brother', who has been guardian to Lily, into a gullible and pliant pawn in Victor's power game. I did not like the person Cole becomes, but I think we are asked to understand the need he has for his father's acceptance, however false we think it may be.
Ashe now has the responsibility of saving the Merlin people and keeping Lily safe, but at times I was unconvinced by her developing character. Despite saving Cole by taking him through the portal and the fact he has protected Lily in her absence, she now refuses to believe in him, which is not helped by Victor's brainwashing of his son. They frequently enter into a war of words, neither one trusting the other and both too stubborn to compromise.
As we continue with the novel there is a sense of trepidation, as we truly doubt there will be a happy conclusion. The later stages of the book are gripping and full of action and the climax of the trilogy is one I could never have predicted, but still satisfying. I loved the fact that with the appearance of Thelma, it is as if the story comes full circle.
I may have only rated Merlin's Children 4/5 but I think other fans of The Children and the Blood series will love this book and like me will also be sad that Cole, Ashe and Lily's journey has come to an end. Let's hope Megan Joel Peterson publishes her new book soon!
I received this as a complimentary review copy, but this has had no influence on my opinion.

Wow! What an ending to what has been such an exciting story! Ms. Peterson did an incredible job of tying up Ashe, Lily, and Cole's story with all Merlin's children.

Merlin's Children picks up the story where it ended in Taliesin Ascendant. Ashe is still trying to find a way to end the war and keep Lily safe. And she questions whether Cole is trustworthy. Cole is doing his level-best to keep Lily safe from the dangers he believes Ashe represents. And Harris begins to question his loyalties as the war between the Merlin, Taliesin, and the Blood comes to a head.

This final book in the trilogy was every bit as thrilling as the first two. I was so tense - flying through the pages to learn who would survive, who would betray whom, which characters would finally put their trust in the right people. It was nail-biting suspense. And the way in which Ms. Peterson chose to reveal the answers to all those questions was brilliant.

Whether she meant to or not, Ms. Peterson did a fine job illustrating the nature of war. In this war, as in any war, the two opposing sides had complete faith in their way being the only way to achieve peace and safety for their side. Each side was willing to sacrifice whatever was required for their side to win. And their constituents followed on blind faith. Each side also did an amazing job with propaganda against their enemies. So amazing, in fact, that it was very hard for some characters to believe otherwise despite seeing evidence to the contrary. And finally, the point that even once this war was ended, it wasn't over. Peace takes much work and dedication.

Merlin's Children was the perfect ending for this story. The strength of character Ashe and Cole exhibited was incredible.

Of course this final book in this series brings the story to a great closure. As a reader, you feel so relieved that the stress of the two preceding books sums up a lot of confusion. A great read for anyone who truly wants to know that there is a rainbow at the end of a difficult time.
