Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This, the second book in the series The Lost Years Of Merlin, was so amazing. It takes you on the most wonderous journey imaginable. The way that it came out in the end was completely unexpected, but great. The description in this book painted a clear picture in my head, which to me, is an important attribute of any novel. Comparing it to the Seven Songs themselves, to sum up this book's very essence is impossible, read it and see.

Read from the Book

Wearily, I lay my hand against the wooden wall. Suddenly I felt a brief spark of warmth from one of the runes. A strange tingling pulsed through my fingers. I caught a whiff of something, not quiet a deeling. Pushing my fingers to the wood, I concentrated harder. I thought of Elen, lying alone on a floor of woven boughs. Help her, please. She has given me so much. In a flash, I understood. The first rune spoke its meaning directly to my mind, in a deep, resonant voice that I had never heard, yet somehow always known. The Seven Songs of Wizardry, one melody and many, may guide ye to the Otherworld, though hope ye have not any... Excitedly, rune by rune, I read my way up each step of the stairwell. Often I paused, repeating the words to myself before proceeding. When at last I reached the top, the sun's first rays were filtering down the stirwell and trembling over the runes. During the night, the Seven Songs had been carved on the walls of my mind just as they had once been carved on the walls of Arbassa.
