    The Hawk and the Wolf is the first installment in a thrilling legendary fiction about the origins of the Arthurian legend with a strong sense of the particular glory and dignity of the land of Britain itself One is thrown into the life of a young boy without knowing his significance and becomes emotionally involved with his complex human character to discover that this strange young man is the great Merlin proverbial wizard and prophet This early history of Merlin’s life is a story of strife for the sake of the glory of his country for the woman he loves There is romance without fairy tale sugar polish real and painful yet ideal enough to live up to the mythical heights of fairy tale from the heart The battles have the perfect balance of real and terrific horror and fantastic glory justice and heartbreaking tragedy The history is tight enough to convince your grandfather and the action is gripping enough to capture the imagination of every young man and woman The image landscape of Tolkien meets the simple and piercing character development of Lewis in this truly great beginning to a tale that will stay with you and awaken a magical understanding of the deep history of the Island that we call Britain the greatest of its kings and that king’s mysterious wizard tutor

    This is book one of an intended three book series and I'm definitely looking forward to them I thoroughly enjoyed the authors take on Arthurian Legend Here Merlin is set in the first century Britian and we see him grow up to take on the uest of finding the lost Excalibur and struggle with his sight The story is well thought out and cetainly well delivered you will see the extensive knowledge of Arthurian Legend behind the tale as well as recognizing someone who has a gift of vocabulary I think we may have the makings of a new classic here 45 stars
