Summary: Merlin summons 5 youth from modern day Great Britain to another world to save his chamber of spirits and, indeed, the entire world (and ours). This science fiction book calls upon the legend of the Knights of the Round Table and adds a modern twist.
Type of Reading: independent reading, anytime reading
Recommended Age: read together: 9 to 12; read yourself: 11 and up
Interest Level: 9 and up
Young Reader Reaction: Review pending.
Adult Reader Reaction: This book was a thrilling read, with many twists and turns. Great for 'tweens and young teenagers with a love for Camelot.
Pros: Merlin's Kin reminded this parent somewhat of the Chronicles of Narnia with allusions to Nazism and Soviet communism. A solid tale of good versus evil.
Borrow or Buy: Buy. Tweens and teens may revisit it and find more in it as they mature.
