Spat out by the sea, the boy lay on the rocks, as still as death. Even if he survived the day, he had no home. No memory. And no name.

So begins the tale of the strange young boy, who having washed up on the shores of ancient Wales, is determined to find his real home and his true name. One day he will become the greatest wizard of all time, but he knows nothing of this now.

At the knee of the mysterious Branwen, who claims to be his mother, the boy learns lore of the Celts, Druids, and people even more ancient. Yet the secret of his identity seems always to escape him. To discover the truth, and the secret of his own powers, he runs away, voyaging to the mist-shrouded side of Fincayra, an enchanted land between earth and sky that is being destroyed by blight. It is there he discovers that the fate of this land and his quest are strangely entwined.

Combining all the passion, power and spiritual depth that are T.A. Barron's hallmarks, this book adds a thrilling new dimension to the legend of Merlin.

    " I don't really know how to describe this book. It's not as though I'm at a loss for words because it was so good. I'm at a loss for words because this book just was not that memorable. It was interesting enough for me to pick up the second one, but it is not the best. It was pretty bland and I don't mean the language I mean the story as a whole. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gracie | 2/8/2014

    " This is the best Merlin story yet. You get to see how Merlin isn't perfect, and how he became the amazing man he is viewed today. :D (well in fantasy world) This is a really good intake on the younger years of Merlin. I couldn't stop reading, its a page turner! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nivasilyev | 1/25/2014

    " The many faces of this legend are divine. I was a young teen when I read about giant trees, lessons, and one shadow with much substance to it, and the growth endured - I share these lessons with young teens. what a great series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jax | 1/24/2014

    " I guess my expectations of a YA book was just too high....or this book was awful. I feel its the latter. I've read this story a hundred times before (which is a problem with reading mostly fantasy) and it was unable to offer up anything new or intriguing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachelle | 1/18/2014

    " Beautifully written and a very creative spin on the story of Merlin. "

    " Really fun! Obviously meant for readers quite a bit younger than myself, so some events were quite predictable, but enjoyable all the same. I was fully immersed in the whole fantastical journey, and I can't wait to start book 2! "

    " 8/10. I remember reading these books in Middle School and ABSOLUTELY LOVING IT. I have a feeling that if I were to reread this today, it may not have the same impact. However, this is really like The Mists of Avalon for the younger set! "
