Winter's longest night is rapidly approaching as Merlin faces the most difficult challenge of his life: to unite all the people of Fincayra against an invasion by the evil Rhita Gawr. But how can one man, in two weeks' time, gather them all—the dwarves, the canyon eagles, the walking trees, the living stones, and more—when none of them will listen? And now comes the mysterious Swordarms, who is hunting down Fincayra's children. Only if Merlin can unite the battling forces within himself, can he save the children, unify the Fincayrans, and regain the long lost wings that will enable him, and his people, to choose their true destiny.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 2/16/2014

    " I really liked this book; Barron was actually able to surprise me. With his previous books, I could usually figure things out before Merlin did, but not this time. I actually gasped out loud three or four times while reading it. It was an amazing book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ilene | 2/10/2014

    " I really enjoyed this whole series. I highly recommend it!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 1/31/2014

    " A really good conclusion to the series. It moved at just the right speed - slow enough to really get you into the relationships and such, but fast paced enough to keep you from getting bored. I'm only slightly embarrassed to say that I was tearing up at the end. I have other books I need to finish up with first, but I fully intend to read the rest of the Merlin series'. I would definitely suggest this book/author (but read the rest of the series first!). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph Lewis | 7/27/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 9/20/2010

    " I thougt that this book was exciting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodee | 9/2/2010

    " This was my favorite so far. It offered the most adventure and it is nice to see that merlin is maturing and not being so selfish. Now he just needs to learn to have greater confidence in his abilities and reliance on others observations and opinions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marni | 12/3/2009

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karolinde (Kari) | 10/25/2009

    " This isn't my favorite of the books, even though there is some really fun play on words. Basically, Merlin runs into his past and future nemisis Nimue. She uses her powers to return to the past in order to kill Merlin before he can become the powerful wizard of her future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenica | 5/18/2009

    " probably the weirdest one in the series... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeri | 1/22/2009

    " 4th of series of 5. looks at merlin's youth and education (through experiences). this is my favorite of the 5 because he meets and visits with his future self. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin | 11/15/2008

    " I'm almost finished with this series and this was one of my favorites. There's an interesting passages where young Merlin encounters himself as the older, wiser wizard he is destined to become. I love this series!

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 7/2/2008

    " Another good book by Barron.

    I really liked the time travel and Merlin's meeting with his older self. I kind of guessed that the boy was not really Ector, but could be Arthur, but it was still good. "
