Chaos ensues as Rome abandons Britain, leaving native Britons alone to defend their shores from the growing Saxon invasion. Set in 5th Century Britain, this retelling of the traditional legends of Merlin, King Arthur, and Avalon, blends a mixture of historical fact with Arthurian fantasy. Refreshingly innovative, the tale spans the mysterious birth of Merlin, climaxing with the conception of Arthur, the legendary future king of Britain. A young Merlin advises three High Kings: to fight through the bedlam, fight for the right to rule, fight to save the future treasure of Britain! Interlacing love, revenge, mystery and murder, with a dash of humor, this coming of age adventure is a guide through the shrouded tales that embrace the Sons of Avalon.

I have always been enamored with the Arthurian legends.
I have read many of the books that have been published on the subject. The one thing that I have a problem with is that the legend changes according to each historian/author, and I have problems keeping the characters straight. There are lots of characters and the names are sometimes very much alike. Those are the problems - but the greatest thing is that the stories are fascinating and a lot of fun.
This rendition of the story of Merlin is great. It has a lot of charm and is written in a way most of us can understand.
Merlin is a fairy child. His mother is the Lady of the Lake. She left him as a babe in the woods and he was adopted by an elderly couple. At the age of six, he is violently taken from this couple and is sent by his mother to be the advisor to the current King and the future King of Britain.
Britain is being invaded by the Saxons and it is a brutal period in history. Merlin is gifted with many powers - he can heal, see visions, and predict the future. He advises King Ambrosious and his brother, Uther.
MERLIN'S PROPHECY is filled with intrigue, battles, romance, and fun. I can't wait to read the next installment in the SONS OF AVALON series.
