    One thought on “Merlin's Shadow

    1. Zoe Scrivener on said:

      Wow. After reading Merlin's Shadow, all I can say is wow. Book two of the spiral far surpassed my expectations. I often had troubles putting the book down. Treskillard brought so much depth into the tale with the conflict between Natalenya and Merlin, Merlin's struggle to trust God, and Ganeida's journey to become Morgana. I loved how Natalenya and Merlin's relationship didn't just become "we love each other, so everything's going to be all right." Instead, it went through the fire and emerged s [...]

      I was really looking forward to reading this second book in the Merlin Spiral--I believe there was some squealing and dancing about when I first held the book in my hands (have to give it points for the gorgeous cover). I fully expected another five-star adventure after "Merlin's Blade," but this one let me down a little. I have several complaints about it, but it was still very engaging and kept hooking me so I couldn't put it down. The writing was stupendous for the most part, with the one exc [...]

      When I first heard Zondervan was putting out a fantasy series based on King Arthur I was thrilled. I thought, “Finally, Christian literature is starting to move in the right direction!” I have nothing against the thousands of romance books that dominate Christian book stores, but most men I know don’t read romance books. I’ve read some of them, because they are almost the only game in town and to be honest I’ve enjoyed some of them, but I have to go to the secular field to read anythin [...]

      I always enjoy reading different writer's perspectives of the Arthurian tales. I enjoyed the first book of this trilogy more, but this was not a disapp0intment.

    7. Amber on said:

      Merlin’s Shadow is the brilliant continuation of the story of Merlin’s rise from quiet obscurity in a small village to world renown at King Arthur’s side. We eagerly follow this epic adventure as it continues on its dark and dangerous path that tightly binds Merlin and the young Arthur into a life full of uncertainty and great feats of faith. This is one fantasy/adventure that even traditional fans of the legend of King Arthur would find enjoyable and entertaining.Merlin is faced with the [...]

      I was so excited to receive this book. Seriously. My poor husband didn't get a warm meal and a clean house until I had finished reading it. Good thing it only took me a couple of days to complete it! ;)This is the second book in the Merlin Spiral series. I loved Merlin's Blade and hoped the second would be as appealing and interesting as the first. It was. I would highly suggest you do NOT read these books out of order. They are priced very competitively, so save up and buy the whole series.At t [...]

      Wow! WOW! WOW! I’m not given to throwing fangirl reviews out there but this book deserves a few wows!First off, the cover is absolutely stunning. This is definitely one of the nicest covers I’ve seen in a very long time! It perfectly captures the essence of the book. Secondly, the story is action packed and intriguing from the start. I actually thought this book was better than the first! I’m very eager for the third installment, Merlin’s Nightmare. Pursued by evil and captured as slaves [...]

      For being such a little guy, Arthur has all kinds of people after him.The High King, who is technically his uncle, wants to kill him. The Picts regard him as a bit of plunder. The arch-druid wishes to avenge a blood-grudge on him. And Atle let’s not even go there.All in all, they turn Merlin’s vow to protect and serve Arthur into quite a challenge. While the whole world seems to conspire to tear Arthur away from him, it also conspires against his happiness. From his mother’s loss, to his b [...]

    11. OutcastWriter Reviews on said:

      I'll admit this review may be slightly unfair, as it has been three years since I have read the first book: Merlin's Blade. The beginning was slightly fuzzy for me as Merlin's Shadow jumps right into Merlin and his friends escaping Vortigern. The pieces slowly fall into place and everything starts to piece together. The only thing however, that bothered me was the dissonance of Merlin's character. Now it may have been because it has been three years since I've read any book in the series, but it [...]

    12. Sarah on said:

      Thanks to my oldest daughter who has gotten me wrapped up into all things related to the BBC, this book about Merlin (who she also watches a BBC show titled as such) had me intrigued because of the Christian twist on an old story of Merlin and Arthur. I had not read book 1, Merlin’s Blade, so the first couple chapters in this book were hard to get through as I was sorting through the multiple characters and of course trying to figure out what happened in book 1 to bring us where we are in book [...]

    13. Whitney on said:

      I have been a longtime fan of Arthurian legend so when I heard a Christian author besides Stephen Lawhead was going to try his hand at it, I was very excited. Merlin is a character with little backstory other than a mishap with Vortigern, so it is always interesting to hear different author's takes on his character. After loving the creativity, characters and themes of book one, I waited for book two eagerly.I did not have anything I did not like about this book, which is rare because normally I [...]

    15. J.L. Mbewe on said:

      In Merlin’s Blade, Merlin finished strong, victorious, and in love, even if he was fleeing for his life, but in book two, his faith and plight quickly declined. And who wouldn’t? Faced with such obstacles as he did. Hunted, betrayal, slavery, and the powers of the druidow working against him. The odds were so stacked against him, I had to keep reminding myself, I know the ending, I know the ending! Arthur will be king, but how would he? That’s the beauty of this story.In Merlin’s Shadow, [...]

      I received an ARC through .---I would give it 3.5 stars.This is the first book of the series that I have read. In hindsight, I highly recommend reading Book 1 first! Although, it isn't too hard to pick up on the storyline and characters if you started on Book 2 like I did.This was an interesting interpretation of Merlin's back story, with hints of Arthur and Morgana. Let's be honest, I was totally expecting Merlin to be using a little more magic on his part, instead it was mostly focused on his [...]

      Merlin's Shadow picks up right after Merlin's Blade ends. Merlin and his companions are on the run from Vortigern and his men, but they are not the only ones after Merlin. Old threats emerge along with new threats. It seems wherever they turn, someone wants to bring harm to either Merlin or Arthur. It is a non-stop ride following Merlin and his companions as they race away from these threats and try their hardest to keep the young Arthur safe.Robert Treskillard is able to weave the mythology of [...]

      Summary:In the second book of The Merlin Spiral trilogy, Merlin has to keep the young King Arthur safe so that he can later become the great king that he is destined to be. While being pursued by Vortigern, Merlin, Garth, and Natalenya travel north with Arthur to try to get to the fortress of Dintaga. The biggest problem is Ganieda, who has discovered some magic of her own. She wants revenge on Merlin, her brother. With her new found powers, she is also targeted by people that want to control he [...]

    19. Julie on said:

      Merlin’s Shadow continues the imaginative reworking of Arthurian legend begun in Merlin’s Blade. While it makes no pretense of being a historical account, the cultural background of cultural structure adds depth and a fresh perspective to a familiar tale. I especially appreciated the tension in Ganieda’s subplot; the author skillfully walks the line between the reader’s expectations and the girl’s devotion to her druid grandfather. I was especially impressed by the scenes where druidic [...]

    20. My Book Addiction and More MBA on said:

      I can imagine this would be a fantasy readers’ dream, especially those interested in King Arthur and the Round Table legends. This series is sort of re-imagined prequel that sets up the well-known stories. These books are excellently written, with vivid imagery and well-developed characters and plot points. Although I am not typically a reader of the Arthurian legend books, and I occasionally found the reading to be tedious at times, I attribute that wholly to my personal interest level, and n [...]

    21. Cathrine Bonham on said:

      Merlin's Shadow picks up right where Merlin's Blade left off, on the run. A theme that consumes much of the plot. This book is non stop action. It is a heart wrenching, breath taking page turner.Merlin and he band of friends are on the run with Baby Arthur. They are being chased by Arthur's murderous, usurper Uncle. And if that wasn't enough family drama for one book: Merlin's vengeful sister is more than happy to help him kill them all and wait until to learn what his Grandfather want's to do.M [...]

      MERLIN'S SHADOWIn the second novel we find Merlin and company as they attempt to flee with Arthur from Vortigern who has fallen under the spell of the stone and is determined to both Merlin and Arthur so he can rule as high king. He has agreed to spare Natalenya because his son Vortipor wants her for himself. As they flee north hoping to find safety they find themselves in danger not only from Vortigern but also from the Picts who are once attacking pillaging the land from the north. When they a [...]

      A fine continuation of the series. Overall, interesting and unique imagery and engaging plot. Will keep book 3 on my to-read list.A couple nitpicks: Wish Merlin and Natalenya had actually talked to each other. Also, several small typos, and a couple of larger grammar and word usage issues that proofreaders/editors should have caught--most glaring being in Chapter 12, when Colvarth is singing, and the words are purposefully archaic, reminiscent of King James English, but with the wrong person for [...]

      At last able to see, Merlin must flee to protect his future king. But what he sees leaves him with little faith or hope. Every turn seems to bring about the victory of his enemies, of murder and thieves. And he fails to see where God is in it all. Something that many people feel in their own trials.Along with the spiritual message, Merlin's Shadow contains adventures that will keep you turning the pages. Merlin must over come many challenges to fulfill his vow and protect those he cares for.Perh [...]

      I have yet to finish this book just wanted to write some stuff before I forget. I am loving the story so far the characters, the writing, the description of surroundings and events in the book. Although I am having a little trouble following the story as I could not find the first book to read I am still really enjoying it. I apologize to the author for taking so long to read this book, I have at least ten others I am attempting to read an work sometimes comes first. I found it funny that there [...]

      Pursued relentlessly by enemies who wish to destroy them and take control of the kingdom, Merlin and his rag-tag band of friends and allies are still on the run, trying desperately to protect orphaned prince Aurthur. But the forces of evil are strong, seemingly insurmountable. When only God can save them, will Merlin trust Him or will all be lost? This book was just as fascinating and irresistible as the first book in the series, "Merlin's Blade". The author weaves an intriguing tale blending Ar [...]

    27. Jordan on said:

      While Merlin's Shadow was in no way less well-written than Merlin's Blade, for me it was less enjoyable. It tells the all-too-true reality of the dark valleys that often follow mountaintop victories. I don't particularly like watching characters I care about suffer, especially when much of it is made worse by their own folly. It's painful to watch, even when I know that valuable lessons and victories are sure to lie ahead. So this book was a hard read for me because Merlin has a bit of a rough g [...]

    28. Katie on said:

      I really enjoy this series. My biggest complaint is that it takes a long time to read. I think it is because it is written similarly to the way people used to talk in 1st century Britain. Also, the story didn't start climaxing until the last 50 pages or so. I think that this could have been combined with the first book, or made shorter. It does need better editing, as there were many mistakes and misspelled words. Other than that, this is very enjoyable. I really love the interpretation of the K [...]

      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.Thi [...]
