CSFF Blog Tour Day 2 — Merlin’s Blade and Merlin’s Shadow

26 Aug

The CSFF Blog Tour is featuring Merlin’s Nightmare by Robert Treskillard. The third book in the Merlin’s Spiral series, it could be read as a standalone. Robert does a good job catching the reader up on all the action from the previous 2 books. But . . . I really think you should start with book 1 first and then proceed to book 2 before reading Merlin’s Nightmare. Below you will find the blurbs on the books and links to my reviews.


73507xMerlin’s Blade. A strange meteorite. A deadly enchantment. And only Merlin can destroy it. A meteorite brings a mysterious black stone whose sinister power ensnares everyone except Merlin, the blind son of a swordsmith. Soon, all of Britain will be under its power, and he must destroy the stone—or die trying.

My Review





735083Merlin’s Shadow. After destroying the sinister Druid Stone and freeing his people from its dark control, Merlin finds himself to be a royal advisor without a king. Along with his friend Garth and Natalenya, his betrothed, Merlin treks north with the orphaned Arthur in hopes of keeping the young ruler safe from soldiers misled by their turncoat captain. Relentlessly pursued by his nemesis Vortigern, Merlin and his band make for the fortress of Dintaga.

But dangers multiply when Merlin realizes that Vortigern is not his only enemy. Even his own sister appears bent on Merlin’s destruction. As the threat on all their lives increases, Merlin discovers their only hope is sailing to the lands of eternal darkness and once again cleansing the world from an ancient and powerful evil.

    Thanks for the review on Merlin’s Blade and Merlin’s Shadow. It is helpful to know about the first books in the series before reading book 3!

      And I would read both books first too. Some say that Merlin’s Nightmare can be read as a standalone, but I think all 3 should be read. Thanks for stopping by.

    I’m in the process of reading Merlin’s Nightmare myself and I agree that one could read it as a stand-alone. Though I’m sure it would be better to read the books in the correct order.
