Andre Norton meets Arthurian legend
on 8 August 2012
Andre Norton mines the fertile ground of Arthurian legend, and the result is a very enjoyable tale! It is told from the point of view of the young Merlin (Myrddin), in Andre Norton's usual coming-of-age theme. I can't say much without giving away spoilers, but expect some new twists on the old tales, including a touch of Von Daniken-style ancient astronauts, post-Roman British culture, and a gem of a scene towards the end between Merlin and his main antagonist that casts ambiguity over much of what came before. Fans of Andre Norton and/or Arthurian legend will love this. Happy reading!
