Other than these few problems (problems to me and not necessarily any other reader) it was an entertaining read.
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.
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.Read more ›
