Other than these few problems (problems to me and not necessarily any other reader) it was an entertaining read.
The Merlin and the Taliesin are at war. Ashley is the queen of the Merlin, and Cole is the son of the king of the Taliesin. They have nothing in common except their love for Lily. Ashley does not trust Cole and tries to keep away from Lily.. Fat chance.
Ashley has Lily and they are running from place to place to survive. She goes back to the cripples, some of which are not happy to see her. Nothing is going well, but Spider elects to join her on her next quest to find answers.
Follow this story as you volley back and forth from good to bad and back again. Not everyone will make it and only Ashley can stop this war. Reality sucks when you have no idea what the answer is.
I enjoyed this series and was sad to see it end. The author wrote these books in a complex, but wonderful manner that allows you to actually believe the possibilities that it's all true. I will be looking over my shoulder from time to time to see if I can spot a Blood.
Read on my friends. You will not be disappointed.
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.
