Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Merlin's story continues in this second installment of Treskillard's Arthurian series as the protagonist makes his way from village boy to mighty wizard and king's advisor. Along with his friends and a boy named Arthur, Merlin hopes to find safety and shelter from his murderous enemies. Before he can realize his destiny, more challenges to his life and his faith loom in the future-including a confrontation with his own sister who has vowed his death. His is a quest of good against evil, but to win the day, and safety for the future king, he must once again cleanse the land of a great evil. This weighty epic with a cast of dozens of characters and places is an attempt to re-create the origins of Merlin from a Christian perspective. While mature readers with heads for detail and patience for plot may enjoy the ongoing story, it's a daunting prospect for someone unfamiliar with the first book or less willing to invest time. Fans of Merlin's Blade (Zondervan, 2013) will certainly want to pick up this next book in the series, but new readers will want to start with the first title.—Stephanie Whelan, New York Public Library

From Booklist

The travails of Merlin continue in this second book in the Merlin Spiral series. Having driven the sword into the Druid Stone, Merlin, Natalanya, and their small band must now protect Arthur, the heir to the throne. However, Merlin’s younger half-sister, Ganieda, is set on destroying both Merlin and Arthur. Merlin’s hope for continued success often wanes, but he is buoyed by his friends and followers. Readers who follow high-fantasy Arthurian legends (and have read Merlin’s Blade, 2013) will immediately become immersed in this sequel, but undertaking this dense tome as a stand-alone requires thoughtful concentration. Grades 7-10. --J. B. Petty
