Book 3 to A Dream of Eagles cycle or The Camulod Chronicles

Born of the chaos of the Dark Ages, the Dream of Eagles produced a king, a country and an everlasting legend—Camelot

Most know him as Merlyn; all call him Commander. Caius Merlyn Britannicus is responsible for the safety of the colony known as Camulod, and for the welfare of the colonists who look to him for guidance, leadership, justice and salvation. Uther Pendragon, the man who will father the legendary Arthur, is the cousin Merlyn has known and loved since their births—four hours apart on the same day, the year the legions left Britain. As different as can be, they are inseparable: two faces of the same coin. In a world torn apart by warfare and upheaval, each is the other’s certainty until a vicious crime—one that strikes at the roots of Merlyn’s own life—drives a wedge between them.

  1. I am resisting the temptation of reading your review until I've read this one!

  2. Merlyn is the sort of character you can crush on. lol Publius was rather old for most of the first two books. He's a thinker, though, Merlyn is. There is action, but there is a bit of everything else too. A lot happens in the book, but I think it is carried off well.
