I thoroughly enjoyed Sons of Merlin and at this stage in my reading of Arthurian stories that is very hard to do. In my lifetime I have really gotten into Arthurian lore, collecting books from college bookstores that seriously explored the topic to every novel I could get my hands on. I'm not an expert, however my wife despairs at the shelves I have full on this subject. My favorite series in the latter were the Mary Stewart and Stephen Lawhorn novels. Especially the latter as I very much like the Christian connection being covered in the period. My wife and I have been to England several times and we devoted out first couple trips to visiting all the Arthurian sites we could work in. We especially enjoyed Glastonbury, Tintagel, Cadbury Hill, Stonehenge and Avebury. Yes, I know there are so many more and a fair number of sites are bogus when it comes to Arthur. However, after that first exploration we had no doubt that there was a King Arthur and for that matter that Joseph built the first Christian church in the Glastonbury area.

I only mention that as after reading so many books there tends to be a same-old, same-old feeling. How many times can you cover a well known story which has certain basic features that have become universally accepted? To do so with style and to keep your full attention takes something that has to be extremely well done. That is true in the case of this novel by Dee Marie. I do not know what all her sources were or what her background studies may have been, but the story is superlatively handled by her. There is a special insight into characters who we thought we knew before. It is doubtful that anyone really knows all the facts about the life of Merlin or Arthur, however she obviously knows the time period and I cannot, as an old retired history teacher, fault her on any point. If I were still in the classroom this would be suggested reading and I look forward to sequels.

I also noticed something I don't believe I have seen in reviews before with Amazon. The author kindly makes comments to each reviewer and I almost regret not opting to have comments sent to me by email. I have reviewed hundreds of books for Amazon and, sadly, when doing political ones have had scathing attacks. Hey, a review is just one person's opinion and that is something Amazon invites us to do. I can't help it if I am a conservative tea party type. If it is a good book, it is fun to encourage others to read it as I am doing here. So dear author, I guess I will miss any comments you may make, but do know that you and your work are very much appreciated.

From the moment I saw the strikingly impressive front cover of: Sons of Avalon, Merlin's Prophecy, the exhilaration of this enchanting tale began.

Dee Marie's solid grasp of the wondrous medieval time period; Arthurian, is highly evident as she takes us (readers) on a non-stop exciting tale. From the mystifying birth of Merlin, I was drawn into the magic. Dee Marie is successful in combining both early British history and mythical characters, masterfully weaved and brought to life.

Merlin is no ordinary child, and throughout the tale he uncovers his life's purpose, while coming to terms with his special powers. I experienced the bloodiness of the battlefields, love, and humor infused in this captivating story.

Sons of Avalon is not just a thrilling page turner, it is, a journey which is guaranteed to leave you anxiously awaiting the second book in the series - Absolutely Outstanding!

If ever a book is worthy of a six star review, Sons of Avalon: Merlin's Prophecy is the book! Highly recommended.

I wholly enjoyed the tale. A new concept but still in the Arthurian vein. It is one of my keepers

After witnessing a tree shattering lightening strike, Arden and Enid hear the cries of a newborn child emerging from the tree's scorched remains. The elderly couple take the helpless child to raise him as their own. Guarded by the ever watchful eye from a high above hawk, the boy receives the fitting name of Merlin. As the boy grows, it becomes clear through demonstration of both his remarkable intelligence and mysterious abilities that Merlin is no ordinary child. This results in his being sought after by the most powerful king of the time putting both himself and his family at risk.

Driven by forces beyond himself, Merlin uncovers his parentage and life's purpose on the beautiful shores of fabled Avalon. As he grows, Merlin learns natures mystical properties from the Druids while continuing to enhance his innate fantastical gifts. As advisory to Britain's powerful kings, Merlin crafts the cascade of events necessary to protect her shores at all costs leading to the conception of the great King Arthur.

In Sons of Avalon, Merlin's Prophecy, Dee Marie creates the beginnings of an epic series. Marie's writing is reminiscent in voice and style to Ken Follett's World Without End and The Pillars of the Earth (Deluxe Edition) (Oprah's Book Club). Her description of the period and locals are a testament to her substantial research and travels. Her imagery was such that not only was I mentally transported to Arthurian Britain but I could almost feel the stinging bite of the ice cold rain as it pelted the characters in their journeys betraying the areas frequent inhospitable weather. My favorite passage takes place at Stonehenge where Merlin calls forth the powers of Earth through a sacred ceremony honoring the slain royals of the time.

Marie's writing is extremely refined not only in style but plot. She introduces various story arcs wetting the reader's appetite nesting them just right so as not to resolve them too quickly. There were a few elements I wanted oh so much more of but did not get. Merlin's time with the Druids for example, what happened? How did he learn their magic? Nimue, Merlin's love interest, makes occasional appearances but is off on the periphery. Finally, the rationale for Merlin's singular focused motivations at times wasn't always clear for me. These elements, however, may likely be additional story arcs ripe for closure and exploit in the series next offering.

For those interesting in Arthurian legend and historical fiction, Sons of Avalon is a must read!
