Overview

What is the nature of fate? Is young Merlin destined to be a powerful wizard, or does he have a choice? These are the questions Merlin must answer as he travels with the deer woman Hallia to the Haunted Marsh where the marsh ghouls have begun a campaign of destruction. Or are the ghouls being manipulated by an even greater source of evil? An evil that seeks to destroy not the marsh, but Merlin himself?

Here, in the fourth installment of the The Merlin Saga, epic master storyteller T. A. Barron weaves a tale of humor, adventure, and surprise as Merlin unravels the mystery of the Haunted Marsh, meets a boy named Arthur, and travels through a mirror of mist that brings him face to face with his destiny.

The book Mirror of Merlin shows how a young but powerful mage tires to save his birthplace from the clutches of evil. In this book, Merlin, along with his new friends, Halia and the ballymag, go into the marshes and try to fight a new evil that spreads a blight thoughout the land of Finacyra.

It's a great book, and is very interesting. The Mirror of Merlin is the fourth book in its series, and is an awesome read. I could read this over and over again! This book has a large amount of adventure and fantasy. It's a must-read to all fantasy-genre fans!

The Mirror of Merlin is not another Harry Potter copy. Every idea in this book is novelty. In this part of Merlin's lost years, he falls in love with Hallia, the Deer Woman. They travel Fincayra's beautiful landscape to find out that the marsh ghouls have become quite unruly. What has caused the marsh ghouls to become so furious and what will Merlin find out about the marsh ghouls and more important, himself.

Although it was a bit confusing , it's still a great story. It is the first book in the series to rely heavily on the previous books. The enemy is from Book II, one character is from Book III, and if you hadn't read those, you may be a bit confused. Overall, it was a good fourth edition.

The series of the Lost Years of Merlin by T.A. Barron is another magical and fantasy series - Merlin leaps toward the Haunted Marsh where he will find the magical key - the last and seemingly lost of the Seven Wise tools- and also Nimue, a girl of the future who in the past had tried to decieve Merlin of his own staff, and a magical mirror to travel to places in the past and future, but you may get lost forever with the wrong turn, going in he finds out information of one of his destinies, one that won't rehappen... - a great book, though I had read it out of order, the only flaw was the ending of the book, the fact it seems so short but then again, most good books are like that... -

I appreciated the originality and style that T.A. Barron always puts into his work. But I would have liked this book even if the the writing wasn't any good because it has my 2 favorite things, Merlin and mirrors. I read all Merlin books the story hooks me and every author adds their own detail and style. I also love mirrors. I have a room in my house made completely out of mirrors so no mattter what I do I can always see myself. I really like myself. It was a great addition to an outstanding series.

I love this book! The 4th book of a 5 book series, and what i think is one of the best! I started reading it in 7th grade (and I'm still in 7th grade) And i think it rocks! I love the adventure Merlin takes into the future and how he meets his elder self, I think that would be so much fun. I have read the other books such as The Lost Years Of Merlin, The Seven Songs of Merlin, The Fires of Merlin, and The Wings Of Merlin (I know i read them out of order, but i still can catch up to stuff) and i think they are all great books! T.A. Barron is now one of my favorite authors.
