Betrayal. After destroying the sinister Druid Stone and freeing his people from its dark control, Merlin finds himself to be a royal advisor without a king. Along with his friend Garth and Natalenya, his betrothed, Merlin treks north with the orphaned Arthur in hopes of keeping the young ruler safe from soldiers misled by their turncoat captain. Relentlessly pursued by his nemesis Vortigern, Merlin and his band make for the fortress of Dintaga.But dangers multiply when Merlin realizes that Vortigern is not his only enemy. Even his own sister appears bent on Merlin's destruction. As the threat on all their lives increases, Merlin discovers their only hope is sailing to the lands of eternal darkness and once again cleansing the world from an ancient and powerful evil.(Book 1 of The Merlin Spiral, MERLIN'S BLADE, is the winner of the 2014 Silver Moonbeam Award for Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction.) From School Library Journal Gr 8 Up-Merlin's story continues in this second installment of Treskillard's Arthurian series as the protagonist makes his way from village boy to mighty wizard and king's advisor. Along with his friends and a boy named Arthur, Merlin hopes to find safety and shelter from his murderous enemies. Before he can realize his destiny, more challenges to his life and his faith loom in the future-including a confrontation with his own sister who has vowed his death. His is a quest of good against evil, but to win the day, and safety for the future king, he must once again cleanse the land of a great evil. This weighty epic with a cast of dozens of characters and places is an attempt to re-create the origins of Merlin from a Christian perspective. While mature readers with heads for detail and patience for plot may enjoy the ongoing story, it's a daunting prospect for someone unfamiliar with the first book or less willing to invest time. Fans of Merlin's Blade (Zondervan, 2013) will certainly want to pick up this next book in the series, but new readers will want to start with the first title.-Stephanie Whelan, New York Public Library From Booklist The travails of Merlin continue in this second book in the Merlin Spiral series. Having driven the sword into the Druid Stone, Merlin, Natalanya, and their small band must now protect Arthur, the heir to the throne. However, Merlin’s younger half-sister, Ganieda, is set on destroying both Merlin and Arthur. Merlin’s hope for continued success often wanes, but he is buoyed by his friends and followers. Readers who follow high-fantasy Arthurian legends (and have read Merlin’s Blade, 2013) will immediately become immersed in this sequel, but undertaking this dense tome as a stand-alone requires thoughtful concentration. Grades 7-10. --J. B. Petty Review "Merlin's Shadow marks a gigantic leap forward ... the characters are sharper, the setting broader, and scope larger ... The novel's action is precise and thrilling, and its conflicts are cosmic. But what allows [the book] to resonate is the development of the central characters..." - Glenn McCarty, book reviewer at Crosswalk.com"...fast moving, engaging, filled with tension and intrigue. I highly recommend the book to readers, especially fantasy fans. It's a must read for those who love the Arthurian legend."- Fantasy & sci-fi reviewer Rebecca Luella MillerPRAISE FOR THE MERLIN SPIRAL:"A sweeping, deeply detailed fantasy that re-imagines the adventures of Arthurian legend ... The author skillfully crafts intense action scenes and vivid settings." - Publishers Weekly"Treskillard crafts a new and unique prequel to the King Arthur legend, one that is rich in atmosphere and detail. Fantasy readers will find themselves beguiled by the young Merlin's story."- School Library Journal"A fresh approach to an ancient genre ... an absolute must-read." - Award winning author Douglas Bond"Trekillard has achieved one of the most difficult
