Merlin's Blade by Robert Treskillard ~ CSFF Blog Tour & Review

Merlin's Blade (The Merlin Spiral, #1)My Review: I have found a new favorite fantasy favorite in Merlin's Blade!

I've always enjoyed reading stories or watching movies and TV shows about King Arthur and his knights of the round table, but Merlin has always been my favorite legend. I especially love the Christian re-tellings of his legendary tale, so this book had a lot to live up to, and it definitely exceeded my expectations.

It was a bit slow to start, but by chapter five I knew that this book was totally for me! Merlin was a noble character with an inner strength about him, his past was a fresh, exciting mystery.

This book is definitely setting this series up to be absolutely epic, there is no doubt about that!

There were a lot of characters to keep track of, but I found the guide in the back to be extremely helpful with that, especially because it taught me how to say their names the right way.

Overall, I loved the twists that Mr. Treskillard brought to this legend, in a new adventure. And I really liked how the speech was distinctly different from modern-day conversation, it really added a richness to the storytelling. There was plenty going on in the plot, so the pages turned steadily and I was far from bored! I will definitely be reading the next book in the series :)

In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
