Publisher's summary

Merlin's Greatest Weakness Could Become His Greatest Strength. With the balance of power between the Druidow and King Uthur’s court in sway, can Merlin find it in himself to overcome his past or will he bring Britain to its knees?

When a meteorite crashes near a small village in fifth-century Britain, it brings with it a mysterious black stone that bewitches anyone who comes in contact with its glow—a power the druids hope to use to destroy King Uthur's kingdom. The only person who seems immune is a young, shy, half-blind swordsmith's son named Merlin.

As his family, village, and even the young Arthur, are placed in danger, Merlin must face his fears and his blindness to take hold of the role ordained for him by God. But when he is surrounded by adversaries, how will he save the girl he cherishes and rid Britain of this deadly evil ... without losing his life?

The Winner of the 2014 Silver Moonbeam Award for Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction, Merlin's Blade includes:

  • Christian, faith-based retelling of the Arthurian legend
  • location map and detailed character guide
  • rich historical details
  • perfect for young fans of Stephen Lawhead

Accompanying maps and a glossary are included in the audiobook companion PDF download.

This story has me hooked in the first few minutes! The narrator was a perfect pick, with his old English accent

A fascinating new view of the Arthur legend!


This fast-paced story is full of action, intrigue, and captivating narrative with rich scene pictures. The characters are fully defined as fascinating. I am eager to read the next Merlin book, Merlin’s Shadow.
