The Brotherhood of Merlin Book Two: Lycenea by Rory Nelson (Book Review #445)

The Brotherhood of Merlin is the second book of a fantasy series book written about Merlin. My initial concern was that since this was the second book of its series, I would fail to catch up on the foundation of the storyline. I was rest assured that this matter was not going to be the case. Although I was pleasantly surprised with the situation, I still felt that I would have benefited from reading book one, beforehand.

Merlin is a hero, and the story begins six months after the brotherhood comes home. Dante and Sylvia try to move on with their new lives but do not find it as natural. King Jason has scared Sylvia’s trust, and she finds it hard to confined in people as darkness begins to take overcome her. Dante settles in with training the new recruits creating future knights.

The story took a medieval take on things and yet kept its fantasy genre in place. The literature was strong and had a nice flow to it. I believe the author also wrote in a more western style adding an Arthurian component to the story. This made the whole ordeal to be pleasing to the eye.

I recommend this book to people that enjoy fantasy books.
