Ignition by Emma Shelford is the first book in the Musings of Merlin series. It's been centuries since Arthur's death, but he promised to return one day, and for some reason Merlin believed him. Now it's the 21st century and still no Arthur. Merlin has reinvented himself as Merry Lytton, a professor living a seemingly normal life teaching, grading papers, and spending time with his friend, Jen. All that changes when he discovers a volcano about to erupt in a quaint town, but there's nothing natu [...]
As a fan of the King Arthur legends, the premise of this story—an immortal Merlin in our modern world—grabbed me from the start, and to my delight, lived up to my expectations. I throughly enjoyed this tale and would have read it in a single sitting, if life had allowed it.Ignition blends Merlin’s well known past with his new present, giving this legendary character a familiar feel while making him unique among the other Merlin stories I’ve read or seen. The characterization is well done [...]
At first I wasn't certain that I would enjoy this book but quickly changed my mind. The main character's history and so he himself is discovered through his dreams. There are interesting secondary characters and the story itself kept me interested. By the end I wanted more so bought book 2 straight away and have just started it. I would suggest you give this author and Merlin a chance, you may just find yourself hooked.
Interesting take on the Merlin stories, I have to admit, about half way through I wasn't sure if I liked it or not. It lost me a bit, I think because I have grown so attached and accustomed to other versions of Merlin. It wasn't what I expected, and I wasn't sure if that was a good thing or not. Having finished the book, I decided that it was a good thing. This is not my favourite of the Merlin stories that I have read and watched, but I think that because it is so not what I expected I enjoyed [...]
This was a first read win.Ever a fan of Arthurian legend, this update for Merlin was a true delight. The plot flowed effortlessly, with enough twists and surprises to keep interest high. Nice character development, and the descriptions of scenery/milieu were spot on.
Ignition is a fast-paced and intriguing story that will appeal to fans of Arthurian legend and modern fantasy alike. Can't wait to read the next instalment in the series!
