Yr ail nofel mewn cyfres sydd wedi ei lleoli ym Mhrydain yng nghyfnod y Rhufeiniaid ac yn cynnwys elfennau o chwedloniaeth Geltaidd wrth sôn am hanes Taliesin, Myrddin ac Arthur.

The second novel in The Pendragon Cycle, a magnificent epic set against the backcloth of Roman Britain and Celtic legend which spans the periods of the heroes Taliesin, Merlin and Arthur.
If rollicking fantasy and grand tales of remarkable warriors, unstable kings, triumph and tragedy are for you, than I cannot recommend this, the second tale in Stephen Lawhead’s critically acclaimed ‘Pendragon Cycle’, highly enough. Taking on widely known legend and recounting majestic matters of the gravest importance at a time of immense change in Great Britain, Merlin’s own perspective is explored in the first person, both as a young man forging his way through knighthood into a ruler status, and as the older and better known talisman of Arthurian myth itself.

Traversing passion, bitter accomplishment and the vision of the great ‘Kingdom of Summer’, the dramatic twists galore in this tale do much to credit the excitement with which so many generations have afforded this character. Occult activity, jealous rage and bloodshed characterise the frenetic activity throughout this book. The saving of a young King Arthur and the mystical placing ‘of the sword in the stone’ ensure this book is not short on dramatic climax.

Volume two of the ‘Pendragon cycle’, this novel slips with ease into this series and will not come as a disappointment for those who enjoyed the first instalment.

Historical context of Celtic legend give the author’s exciting style a tremendous background to paint his expansive tales upon, and there is no denying that Lawhead provides an emotive and riveting read. This book is no light whimsy, but for a gripping and involving story one cannot go far wrong.
