December CSFF Blog Tour ~ Merlin's Shadow Day 2

Welcome to the second day of the December CSFF Blog Tour

Take a new look at Merlin as you have never before seen him...

Merlin's Shadow
The Merlin Spiral #2
By Robert Treskillard

Merlin's Blade left one with questions... at least in my opinion.  I found the encounters that Merlin and his sister Ganieda had with the wolves interesting.  The wolves hunt Merlin, yet befriend Ganieda.  When Merlin is forced to defend his life against an attack, Ganieda blames her brother for the wolf's death.  What is Ganieda's connection to these wolves who seem intent on destroying her brother?  Merlin's Shadow continues with Ganieda's relationship with the wolves and in particular Tellyk.  

But with the death of her mother and father Ganieda has become embittered against her older half-brother Merlin.   And with the twisted manipulation of her grandfather Ganieda bitter resentment becomes all out anger and hatred.  But now, thanks to Tellyk, Ganieda has the means to exact her revenge and anyone and everyone who is willing to aid Merlin in his mission to protect young Arthur is in danger.  Something evil survived the destruction of the Druid stone and Ganieda has the power to use it and she will.... 

Ganieda is in my opinion a fascinating character.  A young girl for whom her brother was willing to sacrifice everything including his sight.  Her grandfather is willing to break her and use her for his own ends, even if it means she will have to kill her own brother.  Ganieda is a scared girl who is searching for love, but will she be able to find it or will her bitterness drive it from her life.

In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
