Yes, the day has finally arrived! MERLIN’S BLADE has been released by ZONDERVAN! Almost seven years of slow and steady labor has finally resulted in this day.
This means that you’ll be able to:
- find it on your store shelves now or very soon, and
- order it online or through your local bookstore.
The only regret that I have in how long it took is that my mother passed away last fall during my editing of the book, and I’m not able to give her a copy.
Age Appropriateness of Merlin’s Blade
The novel will be enjoyable for ages 13 on up to 113, but someone younger could enjoy it if they’re an advanced reader and don’t mind some violence.
The novel is completely clean in every other respect and is family friendly.
About Merlin’s Blade
Just to set expectations: my Merlin is NOT a wizard, but is rather an eighteen year-old, shy, son of a swordsmith. He was mostly-blinded when he was young while saving his sister from wolves.
The basis of the story is that a meteorite crashes to Britain and brings a mysterious black stone. Anyone who sees its glow becomes enchanted by it, and the druids are using its power to reclaim their rule of Britain.
Because of Merlin’s half-blindness, he is the only one in his village who is immune to the stone’s enchantment. Thus he must find a way to save his family, his village, and all of Britain from the plots of the druids.
