    This review was written for Merlin's Shadow, Merlin Spiral Series #2.
    Surrounded by evil men who wish to kill them Merlin and his companions flee north to protect Briton's future king! But to Merlin's horror he quickly finds out that that the traitor Vorigern is not his only enemy,now he realizes that even his little sister,Ganieda wishes him and the young Arthur dead! They flee from one perilous journey to the next trying to find safety but it is not there! As his world begins to crash down around him Merlin starts losing his faith,but his faith in Jesus is the only thing that can save them!

    WOW!This is one of those books you just can't put down! I love to read books about medieval times and legends of medieval times and as you can tell by my blog that I've read quite a few medieval stories but the Merlin's Spiral trilogy is probably my favorite medieval books I've ever read! They are Awesome!

    At last able to see, Merlin must flee to protect his future king. But what he sees leaves him with little faith or hope. Every turn seems to bring about the victory of his enemies, of murder and thieves. And he fails to see where God is in it all. Something that many people feel in their own trials.

    Along with the spiritual message, Merlin's Shadow contains adventures that will keep you turning the pages. Merlin must over come many challenges to fulfill his vow and protect those he cares for.

    Perhaps my favorite part of this story was the villains. Each had a depth that brought the story to life and made their deeds believable. I especially loved Ganieda's story, when I at last found out who she was to be.

    My one complaint was that some of the scenes did not flow well together. At times the grandfather spied on Merlin, which for the hero was a weeks time, but it seemed like only a few hours for the grandfather. I found this a bit confusing, though it did not hinder my understanding of the story.

    I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I have found this book to be a great read for my son. He read the first book in the series and is halfway through this book (it was a Christmas gift) . He loves to read and it is a good alternative for what is out there for our young people today. He loves the time period and has actually requested to use it as one of his Novel studies for Home school, and I am fine with that.

    Thanks and kudos to the author for his writing and this series as it has my son reading.

    Betrayal.

    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.

    My Review:

    The single thing that makes this book great is the fantastic attention to detail in laying the groundwork for the novel. Everything, no matter how large or small is brought to life by the Treskillard's wonderful depictions of everything. From the dungeons to the weather conditions, the words jump right off the page and soak into your subconscious as if it was really happening.

    It is not often that I feel a book that is part of a series can be read alone, but the author brings you up to date easily and without confusion. The clarity and vividness of the writing impressed me so much, I have to keep writing about it. You never feel as if you are reading another version of the oft-told tale, but as if you are reading it through new eyes, and as if you are discovering it for the first time.

    This novel is masterfully told, with an original voice that never once is repetitive or incessantly long winded. Merlin is a character you can actually respect and admire, not someone that is just part of the required reading for the tale. You live everything as it is happening, and it is a full body experience; not just an exercise of the mind.

    This book was provided by the publisher through CSFF for free in exchange for an honest review.
