Product Description

Product Description

Merlin the Magician only exists in myth and legend – at least that’s what archaeology student Jason Carpenter thought until he discovered the mysterious orb that had housed history’s greatest wizard for 1,600 years.

Forced into an uneasy alliance, Jason and Merlin are sucked into a web of deceit, intrigue and murder that sends them on a chaotic race to outwit, and out run, Merlin’s ancient nemesis, the evil sorceress Morgana le Fay, her gang of drug smugglers and a 500 year-old Chinese necromancer. Tis a race against time to complete their quest before an army of dragons are unleashed on a vulnerable and unsuspecting 21st century world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hold on tight! 19 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm mildly obsessed with the Holy Grail so I'm familiar with Arthurian literature and have read a lot of books on the history surrounding both the Dark Age and Medieval takes on the legends. I'm very fond of the subject matter so I was a little wary of reading this book, but having been impressed by some of the author's non-fiction work I wasn't going to let that stop me.

It's a great story, brimming with outrageously brilliant ideas, but firmly rooted in the real world in a way which makes even the wildest fantasy elements perfectly believable. It's a lot of fun, well paced, well written,clever, thought provoking, and completely engaging. Best of all it manages to work its magic without taking any liberties with the various Merlins of myth and history, and actually brings many of them together in a way I'd not considered possible. I think the wait for book two may kill me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revelations: Book one of The Merlin Chronicles 29 Dec 2012
By Nicola
Format:Kindle Edition
OMG what a book!! Thank you Daniel for letting us review it :D
First i have to confess, i have NEVER read a Merlin book......Ever.....Much to the shock and amusement of my friend and fellow reviewer Laura.So i can honestly say, hand on heart, I went into this book with open eyes, And let me say what a book!!
If you are a Merlin fan you have, no NEED to get this book.
Merlin (and yes i mean the wizard) is a totally kiss-ass guy who i must say shocked me a couple of times :) As for poor Jason Carpenter who "finds" Merlin (dont want to give anything away) I think he thought he was loosing his marbles at one point!! (And he's now on my fictional boyfriend list ;) )
As for Morgana Le Fay i have never wanted to slap a book character (well maybe one or two) as much as i wanted to slap her.

To sum it up this book is awesome. I was gripped from the start and can't wait for MORE. I will now be stalking Daniel Diehl for book 2 (you have been warned Daniel)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great action yarn 23 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Just finished reading Revelations and I have to say I was very impressed. I really enjoyed it. I would best describe it as an action packed contemporary fantasy with a lead character that's a thinking man's Indiana Jones. I'm very much looking forward to further instalments of this exciting and fun read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revelations The Merlin Chronicles 9 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback
The secret of a good story is that you keep on asking "what happenes next" and Dan Diehl's first novel certainly ticks that box well.
It's a story packed full of adventure wich I can see landing on the desk of a film producer as a screen play.
In short a cracking good read.
I await the second book of the Merlin Chronicles to find out what happens next.
