I loved this entire trilogy and the final book was no exception. Merlin came alive through all of the books and his character stayed consistent as a child to an older adult. I loved the fact that his "magical talents" were realistically written. In other words, he's not tossing pots and pans in the air as the Disney character. His talents were something I could easily see happening in the real world. He was a real character for me, which I appreciated.

The story is a good detailed telling of familiar touchstones of the Arthurian legend-- the building of Camelot, the abduction of Guinevere, the threat of Mordred-- as Merlin declines in power and confronts a formidable enemy: the witch Morgause. I just wish the author gave Merlin a more active role in events instead of such a passive one.

"You have just been telling me that love cannot be ruled or stopped. If you are prepared to accept love, knowing that it may well bring you to your death, then how much more should I accept this, knowing that it cannot destroy friendship or faith?"
