The Pendragon Cycle
His golden eyes saw the shape of a world yet to be. Jul 23, Mindy Newell rated it liked it.
Lawhead is one of my favorite authors anyway, and he does his homework. The Pendragon Cycle 6 books.
Merlin Audiobook | Stephen R. Lawhead |
Excellent Book Ten Stars First this the the 2nd book in the Pendragon, not the 3rd, there are in fact 5 books in this series and even a sequel Avalon. Plus, it seems to me that Lawhead omitted many of the messier sides of his primary characters in favor of a glossier Christianity and I say this as a Christian.
As surely as I am breathing this account of Arthurian legend is the most forthcoming. He does not info-dump, but rather has done a huge amount of work to integrate various elements of history and legend into the story he chose to tell.
Rather than the mysterious and morally ambiguous figure of many Arthurian treatments, this version of Merlin bursts with life, passion, and great moral authority.
To those not familiar with Arthurian legend, Taliesin’ is an incredible adventure of passion, grief, and promise. Return to Book Page.
These were all “Rex Quondam”–he’s apparently done a “Rex Futurus,” Avalon,” semi-detached from the series, but I haven’t read it yet. The woman who read the first book did such a great job, I don’t see why she was changed.
Recomendo sem reservas a todos os que lwahead de um bom livro. I think less of the poem that precedes the story and that of Taliesin. I didn’t care for this book so I’m wondering if it’s worth checking out his other ones.
Once started, I could hardly put it down. No trivia or quizzes yet.
But I was unable to renew it so it had to go back into the system so the rest of the people with holds on it can lis Tried it a second time and I’m the first to admit this time it was purely my own fault that I didn’t get further than page — I’d borrowed the audiobook while listening to something else, and then once I got around to Taliesin I had 6 days in which to read it, listened for 2 days and then missed 3 because of a combination of things — once again, mainly not in the mood for it.
And part of the reason, I think, I that the first volume, Taliesin, was superb. While I can see the possibility of this being an epic romance, I simply can’t believe it because I can’t see WHY either character would so adore the other.
And he writes mmerlin the old school classic form, which lawheae to the charm of the book. Nov 30, Sedna Dragon rated it it was amazing. Charis basically likes Taliesin because he’s hot. By the last third of the novel, when Taliesin finds God, there is an overabundance of religious hyperbole and self-affirming, circular logic. Lawhead is an internationally acclaimed author of mythic history and imaginative fiction. After that, the rest of the book follows the part of the legend that most lawheaf us know well and for me became tedious at times since I knew what was coming.
Lists with This Book. Possibly one of my favorite female characters ever.
Taliesin (The Pendragon Cycle #1) by Stephen R. Lawhead
The reader can spot the villain a mile away, and they practically walk around with a neon sign proclaiming “I am the evil villain”, but Arthur’s comrades and his wise counselor Myrddin, give them full access to the inner court. I always love stories of Merlin lswhead Arthur and this series has been good so far, however it is disturbing to me that Merlin is Christian in these books.
Retrieved from ” https: Because there was little mystery, I thought the first half dragged. Favorite Christian Fantasy Authors 1 18 May 02, At least Taliesin only declares his love for Charis, never having spoken to her before and that because he wars publicly with Avallach about just whom is going to marry his daughter.
