This review is from: The Crystal Cave (Merlin Trilogy 1) (Paperback)
I've read a few fiction books about the legend of King Arthur and enjoyed them so I saw this and decided to give it a read and I wasn't disappointed. Mary Stewart has a knack for writing a novel that's gripping, has a great plot line, characters you care about but for me she also has this special something I can't really put into words, It's like was reading this book I was sucked in whole heartedly and it was like I was home or in a warm bubble I just wanted to stay there lol
Another thing that I like about the book is the magic, It's not your typical magic that you get in fantasy novels in fact personally I was never sure if the magic was real or just in the other characters minds and I think that's what the author wanted.
The only reason I didn't give the book five stars is because I did feel it lagged slightly towards the end but it was still a pleasure to read and I'm looking forward to reading the next book.
