    Merlin Series

    We have just started reading this series, so far we have really enjoyed the first two books. If you are into wizards or history you might like these books. The wording is young reader friendly.

    Read this book or you are missing out

    This book is an outstanding book for all ages and if you do not read it, you are missing out on one of the best books you can read. I never wanted to put this book down once I started. It always had me guessing at what Merlin¿s next decision would be and how every thing would work out in the end as he defied the rules of Fincayra and made his own path no matter what the consequences might be. The book starts out when Merlin is assigned to heal the lands from a past war before the bad guys return. Out of frustration, he stops his task, leaving the land susceptible to attack. He leaves to try to find his mother on the other side of the mist. He brings her back and she is poisoned by a shadow that was meant to kill Merlin. Merlin must figure out the language of the seven songs and then discover their meanings all in a time limit of one month. The book takes many twists and turns as the young Merlin learns from his mistakes and gathers valuable information on his way to becoming a wise and powerful wizard. I loved this book, and to tell you the truth, I did not read the first book in the series yet. I understood almost the entire book anyway. I do not recommend you do as I did, but if you do, you can understand the book perfectly fine without reading the series in order. I do plan on reading the first book next. This book is great. I did not give it five stars because the book did not adequately address the fact that he had abandoned his original task. I felt like the author forgot about it at times in the book. None the less, this is one of the best books I have read and I recommend that you read it to.

    The Seven Songs of Merlin is an action packed book. It's one of my favorites. Merlin's mother is struck by a death shadow seant by Rhita Gawr. He's already endagered his mother-but will he also endager others in his journy? He is accompinied by his friend Rhia, and the horrible jester Boublwey (I think I spelled that wrong). He doesn't so much want him along, but in the end he finds the jester a loyal friend. Not only does Merlin strive to master the Seven Songs of Wizardry, but he finds his only sibling in the process.
