Merlin's Shadow (The Merlin Spiral #2)
By Robert Treskillard
Published by Zondervan
I have read the first book in this series, and wanted to continue reading of Merlin's life. It did not disappoint me. I loved reading it through and will continue to find the other book(s) and read them as I find them and they come out.
The book continues to follow Merlin and his sister through their continuing life. She hating him, he trying to keep Arthur living so he can one day take over his fallen father's throne. This book definitely grabs you as you are reading and keeps your attention.
This book falls in many Genres in the book, so this is a great read for so many different kind of people who like different things. I would definitely read the first novel first though, so you can better understand what is going on in this second book.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
After destroying the sinister Druid Stone and freeing his people from its dark control, Merlin finds himself a royal advisor without a king. Along with his friend Garth and Natalenya, his betrothed, Merlin treks north with the orphaned Arthur in hopes of keeping the young ruler safe from soldiers misled by their turncoat captain. Relentlessly pursued by his old nemesis Vortigern, Merlin and his band make for the fortress of Dintaga.
But dangers multiply when Merlin realizes that Vortigern is not his only enemy. Even his own sister appears bent on Merlin’s destruction. As the threat on all their lives increases, Merlin discovers their only hope is sailing to the lands of eternal darkness and once again cleansing the world from an ancient and powerful evil.
