The archetypal fantasy book without the goblins,
This review is from: The Crystal Cave (Merlin Trilogy 1) (Paperback)
Mary Stewart's "The Crystal Cave" is a tour de force of myth and magic, told in a way that is believable and not in-your-face (no goblins or elves). In fact, it is impressive how Mary Stewart tells the famous legend of Arthur without it feeling cliched or tired, and builds the characters in an artful way that draws you into their world. If you read this you will feel compelled to read the other books in the series, The Hollow Hills (Coronet Books) and The Last Enchantment (Coronet Books).
If you found this review helpful, why not check out some other books that I like:
