One of my favorite cartoons of all time is The Sword and the Stone. I love everything about it and it makes me laugh all the time. Nothing like a bit of old school Disney to keep it real.
Who isn’t at least slightly fascinated by the lore and legend of King Arthur? A boy who became king and led a nation. And always with every story is the mysterious Merlin. If that’s you then check out more of Merlin’s Beard by Robert Treskillard…
Merlin’s Greatest Weakness Could Become His Greatest Strength
When a meteorite crashes near a small village in fifth-century Britain, it brings with it a mysterious black stone that bewitches anyone who comes in contact with its glow—a power the druids hope to use to destroy King Uthur’s kingdom, as well as the new Christian faith. The only person who seems immune is a young, shy, half-blind swordsmith’s son named Merlin.
As his family, village, and even the young Arthur, are placed in danger, Merlin must face his fears and his blindness to take hold of the role God ordained for him. But when he is surrounded by adversaries, armed only by a sword he helped forge, how will he save the girl he cherishes and rid Britain of this deadly evil … without losing his life?
Treskillard creates villains you hate, heroes you love and while there are elements of Arthur history, he has provides a different take on it as well, so it’s not just another story.
As he brings to life the character of Merlin, with plenty of details and drama to draw into the world of Arthurian legend, you’ll find yourself caught up in Merlin’s world and, if you’re like me, wish you could transport back into those days!
