Review: Merlin's Nightmare by:Robert Treskillard
About the Book:
Arthur, now eighteen, is missing, and Merlin must find him before a shadowy pursuer catches him first.
With the High King and his kingdom caught in a trap of sinister deceit, Merlin has to find a way out before all is lost. Having everything to fight for, and almost nothing to fight with, Merlin and Arthur must rally Britain’s warriors against three overwhelming enemies: Saxen hordes in the south, Picti raiders in the north, and a chilling new enemy that has arisen in the west. At the same time, Morgana brings Merlin’s deepest fear to life and sets a horde of werewolves loose to destroy Britain. But when the secret purpose of this nightmare is finally revealed, will Merlin and Arthur find a way to survive—without unleashing an even greater evil?
About the Author:
Robert Treskillard has been crafting stories from his early youth, and is a software developer, graphic artist, and sometime bladesmith. He and his wife have three children and are still homeschooling their youngest. They live in the country near St. Louis, Missouri.
Countless times, Merlin has remained hidden to protect the ones that he loves. Although Merlin is ready to give up on the whole protection idea, the formidable Arthur is ready to go to war. Arthur gains a horse and abandons his home in order to look for adventure and to hopefully fight in the war. Little does he know, he is going to the wrong war camp.
Morgana is stronger than ever and she is all about showing everyone what she can do. She sends many, many werewolves to kill anyone in there path, but she really has Merlin in her sights to be the next victim. Merlin is a man on a mission he has to get Arthur back home to help fight Morgana and he has to protect his family as well.
I loved this book! It is a perfect addition to the Merlin Spiral series--being the third book in the series it is still going strong and has not become stale as some books typically do further on in a series. A great book that is filled with fantasy and action, definitely a page turner for sure!
