familiar story of King Arthur with neat plot twists. Merlin (or Merlinnus
in this story), the powerful magician of the King Arthur legend, is portrayed
here as much showman and trickster as he is the master of magic.
Arthur is torn by self doubt about his own fitness to be king, a view shared
by others who covet the throne. Merlinnus concocts a plan to lay
all doubts to rest: a sword stuck in a stone can only be removed
by the rightful king of England. Merlinnus tries to leave
nothing to chance but his his careful plans unravel when someone else pulls
the sword out of the stone before Arthur does. There is plenty of
magic, evil characters, and humor to whet the readerís appetite in The
Sword of the Rightful King. (Henry L. Hall, South
