More About the Author

Jacqueline Rayner is the author of several best-selling Doctor Who titles (her book 'The Stone Rose' holds the record for the highest sales of any Doctor Who novel), as well as other fiction and non-fiction, much of it TV-related. She lives in Essex with her husband and twin sons, and writes a regular column for Doctor Who Magazine about family life.


About Quick Reads:

"I've been lucky enough to write two Quick Reads, Doctor Who: The Sontaran Games in 2009 and Doctor Who: Magic of the Angels in 2012. Quick Reads is a wonderful initiative providing short, easy-to-read books for people who struggle to find the time for longer works or find them daunting. They aim to open up the world of words for those who've forgotten or never knew how much fun reading can be.

"I have a special reason to love Quick Reads. A few years ago, during a particularly bad bout of ill health, I found myself too unwell to read. This lasted for several months, and as someone who has spent almost every spare second reading for as long as I can remember, it was incredibly frustrating. Then one day my husband came home with a copy of Chickenfeed, a Quick Read by one of my favourite authors, Minette Walters. Slowly, page by page in my sick bed, I managed to get through it. The realisation that reading wasn't lost to me after all is something I'll always be grateful to Quick Reads for."

I brought this book for my 9 year old who was very reluctant to read books. This book got straight into the story and he was eager to find out what happened straight from the start. It is the first book that he has asked if he could read in bed, and it was the first time I saw him reading quietly on his own, he understood the story and asked for the next book as soon as he had finished it (never thought I would hear that) he has now finished the whole set and his teacher has said how much his written work has improved with more expressive writing and enthusiasm. He has now started the doctor who series and now seems to be in a habit of reading in bed without me nagging him.

Excellent - my son is a huge Merlin fan and not the best at reading a book. He was fixated with this book and I bought all of them for him. It's a shame there are not many other Merlin Younger Readers Books.

Being a Merlin fan I was eager to read some of the Merlin books. This book I would say is for the younger reader. However I did enjoy it. Also having two episodes in one book is a good idea.

Not what you might think! 15 July 2014
By Brittney Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's not what you might think. When I bought this I was hopeful it would be like a guide book to the potions and poisons used in Merlin. I was wrong. This book reads like a graphic novel, and has poor illustrations, to be blunt its a waste of money, I would not recommend it, nor would I buy it again.
