Once again Mary Stewart has left me breathless and wanting more.

The third book in Stewarts Arthurian legend takes us through the early years of Arthur's reign. I love this author's prose and writing style, and I love the tale she weaves. Her story is a slightly different version than the norm and truthfully, I will never be able to read another author's version without comparing. So I figure I won't.

Her characters are perfect and flawed, which is what makes it all seem so real. Her research into the legend and the actual life of Arthur and his court delves deep. She takes the time at the end of the book to explain how and why she told her story. There were many historical documents made available to her and she says If I had known how much there was to read I would never had dared to start to write it all.

I am glad she dared and I am glad to have read her work. ( )

See comment on The Crystal Cave. This trilogy should be read all at once. It's not very long. ( )

Arthur has come of age and reigns as High King. His trusted boyhood companion Merlin is there by his side when needed, and retreats to his cave whenever else. This being Merlin's tale means we don't see a lot of Arthur's action. But Merlin himself is growing older (40 isn't that old!) and prophecies still have to come to pass.

Arthur has a few final battles to chase out the last of the Saxons, but Merlin knows those will go ok, and leaves him to it. A far greater concern is Arthur's wife. I was unaware that the arthurian canon generally had at least two Gwuinaveres in it, although it seems to be commonplace in the time for women to die in childbirth and be replaced with a younger wife. At least he's serially monogamous, unlike many of his fllow petty kings. The plot such as it is, is still slow. Morguesse his half-sister is still hunting for power, but she's mostly exiled to the Orkneys raising Lots children, (and Modred). His full sister Morgan started out sweet but somewhere un-specified along the line becomes corrupted by Morguesse, and there's several events that needed a lot more details, but were just skimmed over. Again in the afterwards that author refers to cannonical sources , but they aren't part of the tales I knew.

Equally disappointing is the round table and the Companions, although I feel this maybe reserved for the next book, they are mentioned here and there, but there's no details. Some of the quests we'd expect to have occurred are mentioned only upon completion and again without any story telling or drama. Most of the latter half the book is taken up with Niume, the Lady of the lake, Merlin's infatuation with her (despite his gods' restrictions - although these apparently don't apply to her even though she's using the same powers). As Merlin's connection to the gods weaken so does his health and he suffers several relapses (epileptic fits? again not the lore I know) which eventually bring about the prologue from the first book. It feels very much as if this was intended to be the end of the trilogy, although of course as above many events are left unresolved.

It is wonderful evocative writing, clear, easy to follow descriptive and enjoyable with characters you can believe in, but it's still slow and very little (although there is at least some action in this) happens. ( )
