THE FIRES OF MERLIN

by | Read by Kevin Isola

Children Ages 10+ • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

Young Merlin struggles to develop his blossoming wizard powers in this third book of the Lost Years of Merlin series. Already directed by his strong commitment to righteousness, Merlin faces many magical foes, including the newly awakened dragon threatening to destroy all of Fincayra. Fortunately, Merlin finds assistance from magical allies, such as deer people and a courageous stallion. Kevin Isola narrates with a whispery British accent generally suitable to the story but cloying for female characters. Other characterizations are sometimes overdramatic, such as the malevolent sorceress, who sounds like Star Wars' Yoda, and the angry dragon, whose growls overwhelm his dialogue. Nevertheless, this is an enjoyable book for those intrigued by Merlin. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
