Unlike other books about the Arthurian Legend, Mary Stewart's trilogy focuses on Merlin, the wizard. Here in the first book we hear Merlin as a boy. Stephen Thorne does a masterful job portraying the characters. From the gruffness of the soldiers, to the softness of the women, all the voices ring true. In addition, the pronunciation of the place names leaves no doubt that the narrator knows Wales and Cornwall. Although the book isn't new, listening to it adds dimension and pleasure. Thorne's versatility adds absorbing dimension to the trilogy. D.M.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 95]
