Review by

The third in the Camulod Chronicles follows Merlyn in his early years and young adulthood. Arthur is born near the end of the book. Like the other books in this series, much attention is given to military matters. This can get slightly tedious to someone like me who doesn't give a damn about battle scenes, yet I fully recognize the necessity of those scenes within the narrative. I really enjoyed this book and am quite eager to get to the next in the series.
