    He was born to greatness, the son of a Druid bard and a princess of lost Atlantis. A trained warrior, blessed with the gifts of prophecy and song, he grew to manhood in a Britain abandoned by its Roman conquerors. He was to have a higher destiny: to prepare the way for the momentous event that would unite the Island of the Mighty - the coming of Arthur Pendragon, Lord of the Kingdom of Summer. This is the second book of The Pendragon Cycle.

    Overall

    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). This is a great book, and tells the story of Merlin, who is both a warrior and a prophet. Stephen Lawhead is a wonderful Chrisitian Fiction/Fantasy writer. He hails on the tradition of George MacDonald (who inspired C.S. Lewis and Tolkien) and Lewis and Tolkien. Don't just read this series, read "The Song of Albion" and the "Dragon King Saga". Should get ten stars if it was possible. **********

    Dr. Ben Carson's Gifted Hands is the inspiring autobiography of an inner-city kid with poor grades and little motivation who grew up to become one of the world's most renowned and important surgeons.

  • The Bondwoman's Narrative

    Story

    An unprecedented historical and literary event, this tale written in the 1850s is the only known novel by a female African American slave, and quite possibly the first novel written by a black woman anywhere. A work recently uncovered by renowned scholar and professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., it is a stirring tale of "passing" and the adventures of a young slave as she makes her way to freedom.

    Hilary says: "Poor reading of an important book"
    "READ THIS BOOK"
    Overall

    The first novel written by a slave woman, and maybe the first novel by a black woman. This novel is great. And the fact that Hannah Crafts never had a formal education it is excellent. In fact most of the corrections she made improve the book. In the hardcopy edition of the book the information by Dr. Gaines about the book is facinating. This book is somthing that transcends race. READ THIS BOOK.
