The Crystal Cave
- The Arthurian Saga, Book 1
- By: Mary Stewart
- Narrated by: Nicol Williamson
- Length: 3 hrs and 9 mins
Was Merlin an otherworldly being or just an ordinary mortal with extraordinary powers? Over the centuries there have been many stories about Camelot, but the mystery of the magician who nurtured, trained, and advised King Arthur has remained unexplored. Some have called Merlin a sinister, all-powerful Prince of Darkness. Others have described him as a merely a man, heir to the secrets of the Crystal Cave, possessed of rare and remarkable gifts.

Really bad production
What was most disappointing about Mary Stewart’s story?
This is one of my favorite books, and therefore one of the first books I purchased with my audible membership. Unfortunately, the abridgment takes so much out of the story that it is impossible to follow. Also, the production/sound quality is awful.
Any additional comments?
Hopefully, someone else will make an unabridged recording in the future

For a beleaguered Empire, desperate times call for desperate measures. Sowing discord among the fragile coalition of the New Republic, remnants of the once powerful Empire make one last play for victory. Having implicated the Bothans in the genocide of the Caamas, they now plan an attack on Han and Leia that is also to be blamed on the Bothans. If they are successful, the New Republic will be torn asunder.
Too Much Left Out

I know this book is abridged - but the abridgement was terrible! They skipped a huge section of the book, basically most of the part with the Chiss, and it barely made sense. I would definately not get this book again and am leary of the other abridgements in this series.
