The Pendragon Cycle

And this one was supposed to be a good lawyead. But there were few other distractions from the main thread. Post-Roman Lawheae was particularly fascinating, as was the attempt to create a real place out of Atlantis. For Taliesin, his tale shows the meeting of his parents, his training as a druid, and how he meets Charis. Not my favorite Lawhead book.

No ha de ser tot bo, no? Reading Porius reminded me how much I liked this book when I was 12 or 13 and got it from a little bookshop in North Wales.

Book Review: “Merlin” by Stephen Lawhead

I totally enjoyed this as a blending of the myth of Atlantis and King Arthurs Court. To co-opt him as a tool to preach the christian that destroys that tradition, when almost every other aspect of the story already serves that purpose, is both pointless and offensive. The style isn’t always easy to connect with, but I, personally, love it to pieces.

Can’t wait to see how the story continues with the next book: Again, this was such a disappointing take merlim a much-loved story so full of opportunities for literary gold. What did they find?

Out of all the characters, I sort of thought that Gwalchavad would be the one that turned on author since the story is from his perspective. Jan 13, Mike Fendrich rated it really liked it. They get married or attached to a man. I mean, reading it without knowing these tricks, I just got to the end and—through tiny little tears—thought, What?!? The book isn’t that bad. Nov 27, Toby Brennen rated it really liked it. He would be better suited to commenting on a game of Polo.


This was an amazing book!

Taliesin (The Pendragon Cycle #1) by Stephen R. Lawhead

It’s kind of downhill from there. I liked Merlin’s first-person narrative voice a lot more than the first book’s omniscient narration. This is a great book, and tells the story of Merlin, who is both a warrior and a prophet.

The fact that he spends most of the book viewed from other characters’ perspectives probably indicates that Lawhead was trying to set him up as this legendary figure, relying on his fame to Now my impression is that while they might be stout and true, they aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed.

And while Atlantis has trading relations lawhdad places in the Roman Empire like Phrygia, King Avallach apparently has heard of the “Roman tribe” only vaguely; and though Atlantean seers know about Mithraism and the cult of Isis, they haven’t heard of Christianity. Great take on an old story! Once I moved past that, as Merlin moved into life and hope again, I was once again caught up in the grand sweep of Stephen R Lawhead’s saga.

In all, the series started merlon in the first two books, and raised my hope that it my continue to crescendo to a great finale. Recomendo sem reservas a todos os que gostam de um bom livro.

I do remember that Merlin was a significant read for me in college. But they’re mortal, and the legendary sinking is stuck right in the middle of recorded history. I really liked reading the book from Gwalchavad’s perspective. I think less of lawhea poem that precedes the story and that of Taliesin. It only gets worse in part 3 where she meets Taliesin, because then she goes from Strong Independent Woman TM to Meek Feminine Love Interest TMbecause once she lays eyes on him she starts swooning like she’s on the cover of a Harlequin romance novel, and never really asserts herself again.


While it is a merlib story, the series as a whole still feels unfinished. Quan em vaig decidir a re-emprendre la saga, vaig decidir tornar-lo a llegir, i no me lwahead penedit.


No spoilers here, but the ending of this novel is one that I lawheac not see coming; and the quality of the writing in the last pages reaches a level that, so far in my reading life and I’m 58 I’ve seen equaled, but not bettered. Uther is rash and full of anger, but also no fool.

If only Lawhead could have invested the title character with a little more pizazz The Pendragon Cycle 6 books. With both good and evil existing in the book and adding on, a thrilling twist, the Grail is a meroin recommendable book to everyon The book is compelling in every manner.

Arthur is made Duke and Battlechief of Britain after drawing the sword of Maximus from a stone, but must fight back the Saecsens and barbarian invaders and unite the peoples of Britain before he can be accepted as High King. Melin had figured out the order of the trilogy as Taliesin, Merlin, and Arthur, but here and there I would see other titles in the series. Of the new characters, I was most intrigued by Ganieda, Aurelius, and Uther. In short, you should have done a proper amount of research, Mr.
