p.s. The similarities to the Star Wars films that were found in the first book are definitely not present in the final book.
The longest night of the year threatens to bring together Fincayra and the Otherworld. At this point Rhita Gawr provides a terrible threat against the land. If this weren't enough, a sword-armed man travles along attacking children.
The story is quick-paced, the writing lively and personable. As any good conclusion should do, this reunites beloved characters and manages to wrap up every loose end I could think of. The ending, with all its excitement and danger, had me absorbed. The book ends like it should, and is thoroughly satisfying.
Really, this is just the end to what has been a delightful series. Great for young fantasy lovers.
His "Lost Years of Merlin" series is clearly destined to be a modern classic, an exquisitely-written epic saga that reinvents the legendary Merlin. "Wings of Merlin" is no exception -- it's a fitting end to a wonderful five-book trilogy, with its exquisite writing and an epic clash between the legendary wizard and the evil Rhita Gawr.
Merlin and his beloved Hallia are enjoying the peace after "Mirror of Merlin," shapeshifting into deer and romping under the amused gaze of Merlin's sister Rhia. But Merlin's powers aren't quite what they could be. And their peace is shattered by a vision of the Dagda, in which he warns Merlin that the battle against Rhita Gawr is about to come to a head. Dagda can't attack Rhita Gawr directly without unbalancing the world, and so it's up to a wizard -- Merlin -- to rally Fincayra's weird and wonderful array of races against Rhita Gawr.
Merlin meets up with his old friend Shim the Giant, and receives terrible news: His father, the evil Stangmar, has escaped his prison and is going after Merlin's mother Elen of the Sapphire Eyes. To make things worse, a sinister masked man with swords instead of arms is killing children -- and Merlin's spells don't work against him. Merlin must rally together the giants, the dwarves, the marsh ghouls, and everyone else in Fincayra -- but it may not be enough to defeat Rhita Gawr.
Until T.A. Barron's "Merlin" series, there were very few satisfying books about Merlin's early life.Read more ›
