Community Description
An enchanting tale of love and loss, glory and grandeur, set in the twilight of Rome's power...where the Celtic chieftains of Britain battle to save their land from an onrushing darkness...In this modern classic, Stephen Lawhead presents a majestic retelling of Western literature's most compelling epic. Merlin. His golden eyes saw the shape of a world yet to be. His wisdom would light the path of the coming King. Born of a union between druid and faery, he was trained as a bard and schooled in the ways of battle. But his heart and calling were greater than a warrior's. Son of the great Taliesin, the song of his father coursed through his soul. Yet his life and mission were to be his own. And though sovereignty was his, he would lay it aside to serve a king of his own choosing. As his powers transcended those of mortal men, so, too, would his trials, his griefs...and the dark might of his most fearsome enemy. In the twilight of Rome's rule over the Island of the Mighty, as smaller men vied for ascendancy, his would be the hand to lay the foundations of a new order - the Kingdom of Summer...and Arthur, Pendragon of Britain.

Annotation: The second book in the Pendragon Cycle explores the birth and life of Merlin as he prepares himself and the land for the coming of King Arthur.

Author Bio
Unlike many science fiction and fantasy authors, Stephen R. Lawhead studied Fine Art while attending college (Kearny State in Nebraska). While there he wrote both poetry and a column in the college paper, though it wasn't until several years later that he turned to fiction. In the meantime, he played guitar in a rock group, studied at Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, and started and managed a record company. His first novel, IN THE HALL OF THE DRAGON KING, appeared in 1982. The first volume of Lawhead's Pendragon Cycle, an Arthurian fantasy series, was published in 1987, and was derived from research Lawhead had done in England, a country to which he and his family eventually immigrated in 1990. The Pendragon books are arguably Lawhead's most popular--the second of which, ARTHUR, even received a nomination for the Locus Award, an award voted on by the readers of science fiction and fantasy. Lawhead has also written non-fiction guides to life in college, several in collaboration with his wife, Alice.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
YES!  Oct 16, 2009
This book is the bomb! it was excatly what i was looking for and i read it non stop. Literally 24 hours. but only 1 problem it lasted me three days!!!! Anyway this is a great book, if you like fantasy this will be the book of your dreams!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fast-moving style  Oct 1, 2008
Book two of The Pendragon Cycle, in which Lawhead moves forward in his retelling of Arthurian legend onto a little firmer historical ground, in that time between end of Roman military presence and establishment of island-wide political rule.

This slim historical grounding gives Lawhead's tale believability, and he writes in fast-moving style, seldom bogged down in breathless romanticism, and sometimes rising to profound and humorous levels in retelling this oft-told tale.

Book three in the series: Arthur (The Pendragon Cycle, Book 3)
Lawhead weaves a great tale  Feb 16, 2008
I am a fan of the Mary Stewart Arthurian legend, yet I found myself enthralled with the Pendragon Cycle of books. Very different types of stories, but I found them equally interesting. I read this book almost 20 years ago and I remember it almost in its entirety.
Not Free SF Reader  Sep 3, 2007
Merlin goes through a considerable period of Myrddins life. He is the child of Charis of Atlantis and Taliesin the Bard.

From being a kid and showing his tutelage by various luminaries, to life as a young warrior, all the way through to becoming a kingmaker and installing Arthur.

The Second Book in the Pendragon Cycle  Aug 7, 2007

Stephen R. Lawhead is an internationally acclaimed author of mythic history and imaginative fiction. His works include Byzantium and the series The Pendragon Cycle, The Celtic Crusades, and The Song of Albion. Stephen Lawhead has his home in Austria with his wife.

I admire Stephen Lawhead's writing very much. It is quite obvious to the reader that the author loves his subject matter and in his historical novels has diligently researched the material that he uses. Even with Merlin, which can only be described as a fantasy, the way the author sets the scene makes the reader almost believe that they are reading a factual rather than a fiction book.

Having brought the `children' of Atlantis to the shores of Britain in Taliesin, the author now focuses on the mystical figure of Merlin, who in all the other legends is always at the right hand of Arthur. Merlin has a vision of the Kingdom of Summer ruled by the Summer Lord.
