Merlin

Ever since I was a child, I have loved reading about King Arthur, Merlin, Lancelot and the rest of the Knights Of The Round Table.  First it was simplistic story books for children, but I quickly moved on to the likes of Mary Stewart and her sweeping epic series.  My fondest memories of my trip to England at age thirteen are of my visit to Tintagel and Merlin’s Cave.  The last book I read about Arthur’s England was Deepak Chopra’s The Return Of Merlin.  Yes, that Deepak Chopra.  It is quite a good novel, actually, although it technically doesn’t take place in Arthur’s England, but instead in the England of today.

It has been a long time since I entered that magical world (Monty Python doesn’t count), so I am delighted to be embarking upon a fresh journey, thanks to Marilyn Hume, and Battle Of Kings, the first book of her new trilogy, The Merlin Prophecy.

In looking for this image, I found several more books set within the Arthurian legend.  I may become obsessed.
