Jake's Review of The Lost Years of Merlin

The Lost Years of Merlin by T.A. Barron
Reviewed by Jake McCarthy

Merlin is a boy who sails away from his homeland and lands in a magical land of Fincayra. When his friend Rhia is captured by warrior goblins, Merlin starts out on a quest to the Shrouded Castle where the evil king, Stangmar, lies.

I liked this book because of the seven powers that Stangmar has. I also enjoyed this book because of all the friendly and adventurous people that Merlin encounters.

I recommend this book for ages 9 to 12.
