I loved the first two novels and was very happy to be able to read this third book. So they skipped Arthur's growing life when he was a baby to a teenager and puts him at the age of 18 now. Though it does mention that they lived in peace in all those years.
This was a great series. It was my first reading of anything about Arthur and Merlin. I only had known some basic info about them, so this was a great series to read and get perspective on them. I am glad i decided to read the first book which was what lead me to read the second and this third book.
Arthur, now eighteen, is missing, and Merlin must find him before a shadowy pursuer catches him first.
With the High King and his kingdom caught in a trap of sinister deceit, Merlin has to find a way out before all is lost. Having everything to fight for, and almost nothing to fight with, Merlin and Arthur must rally Britain’s warriors against three overwhelming enemies: Saxen hordes in the south, Picti raiders in the north, and a chilling new enemy that has arisen in the west. At the same time, Morgana brings Merlin’s deepest fear to life and sets a horde of werewolves loose to destroy Britain. But when the secret purpose of this nightmare is finally revealed, will Merlin and Arthur find a way to survive—without unleashing an even greater evil?

The third book in a new fantasy series that enters into the world of King Arthur, Lady of the Lake, the creation of Excalibur, and the rescue of King Arthur himself as it retells the story of Merlin.
In book three of Robert Treskillard’s Merlin Spiral series, Merlin must find the missing, now eighteen-year-old Arthur before a shadowy pursuer catches him first.
