Battle of Kings | [M. K. Hume]

Battle of Kings

In the town of Segontium a wild storm washes a fugitive ashore. He brutally rapes the granddaughter of the ruler of the Deceangli tribe, leaving her to bear his son, Myrddion Merlinus (Merlin). Spurned as a demon seed, the child is raised by his grandmother and, as soon as he turns nine, he is apprenticed to a skilled alchemist who hones the boy’s remarkable gift of prophecy. Meanwhile, the High King of the Britons, Vortigern, is rebuilding the ancient fortress at Dinas Emrys.

Publisher's Summary

In the town of Segontium a wild storm washes a fugitive ashore. He brutally rapes the granddaughter of the ruler of the Deceangli tribe, leaving her to bear his son, Myrddion Merlinus (Merlin). Spurned as a demon seed, the child is raised by his grandmother and, as soon as he turns nine, he is apprenticed to a skilled alchemist who hones the boy’s remarkable gift of prophecy. Meanwhile, the High King of the Britons, Vortigern, is rebuilding the ancient fortress at Dinas Emrys. According to a prophecy, he must use the blood of a demon seed—a human sacrifice—to make his towers stand firm. Myrddion’s life is now in jeopardy, but the gifted boy understands that he has a richer destiny to fulfill. Soon Vortigern shall be known as the harbinger of chaos, and Myrddion must use his gifts for good in a land besieged by evil. So begins the young healer’s journey to greatness . . .

    "Too much Historical Background"

    There was just too much historical background for me to enjoy the story. I also did not like reading about the war plans. I would have liked to have more characterization and a stronger plot. Some people will enjoy reading about the medieval battles, and she goes into great detail about them. I am not interested in purchasing the next book in the sequel unless I can obtain it for free.

    The narrator, Steven Crossley, was excellent.

    "Not exactly action-packed."

    I guess I expected more interesting characters and events. Merlin himself does little more than put Neosporin on some folks wounds to demonstrate his healing prowess.

    The book is not bad, just not an instant favorite as I was hoping.
