    1. This first three of the books in Legacy are among my favorite books, consisting of three novels that follow the Arthurian legend through the eyes of Merlin. The first novel, The Crystal Cave was assigned to me in high school, as was Mary Renault's story about Theseus, The Bull from the Sea--what Renault did for Ancient Greece, Mary Stewart did for Dark Age Britain--bring it alive for me. This has been described as fantasy, and there are touches of that, but much of Merlin's magic is rationalized [...]

    2. for such a fantastically rated book, the ebook formatting is horrific. 11/1/11 still plugging away at this book. But now I've gotten to the part after Arthur is king and it's not as interesting. 1/1/12 ok taking this off my reader and read list for now. It's just not as interesting after the first 700 pages. I am giving it four stars because it is a very well written book it's just too long!

    3. Just finished re-reading Mary Stewart's marvellous epic tales of Arthur and Merlin, re-issued as Legacy. Was as lost in the story as I was in the 1980s reading them for the first time. Good to see her interpretation of Mordred as not the evil arch fiend, plotting Arthur's downfall but rather a man caught in the web of Fate, unable to avert the prophecy of Merlin.

    4. It was a long read (and it took me a long time, on & off), but I enjoyed it very much. Narrated by Merlin, set firmly in post-Roman Britain, full of medicine, math, engineering and myth making. It's left me hungry for more Arthurian stories and more medieval history and literature. Thomas Mallory, Chrétien de Troyes & Pearl Poet, here I come!

    5. Five stars for M.S. but not -don't pay unless they re-edit! These are some of the first adult books I ever read about Arthur. They are classics, a legacy,indeed,as has called them. Too damn bad they didn't really care! The transcribing of the first two books was well done,but apparently someone thought it was taking too long,or grew bored or sent in a ten year old to do the third and fourth books. Throughout them are constant grammatical and plain STUPID errors that should never have happened. [...]

    6. The Kindle book Legacy included the major four books in Mary Stewart's Arthurian series: The Crystal Cave. The Hollow Hills, The Last Enchantment, and The Wicked Day. The writing was excellent, but I can see why this American version was pulled from the market. It was obviously scanned and then spell-checked, but half-heartedly. It didn't catch some run-on words. It didn't catch "at tacked" for "attacked." My brain twitched each time I read about the "Prankish" (instead of "Frankish") kings. The [...]

    7. This book is a collection of 3 novels aboutMerlin and Arthur and 1 more about Mordredwho is Arthur's bastard son who leads to hisdownfall. I really enjoyed the Merlin novelsand the story of how Merlin helped Arthur grow up to be king. The relationship between thetwo of them is very much like father and sonand is one of my favorite things about the books.The Mordred novel is fast paced and full ofaction, swords are always out. I enjoyed ittoo but it was different, much more of anaction story. Mar [...]

    8. I bought this book because someone recommended it to me on the Inheritance Books blog. I can't believe I hadn't read it sooner.It's the quintessential Merlin story. If you're a fan of the TV series (I am), you'll see instances where the writers used Mary Stewart's phrases and ideas and worked them into the new storylines.A brilliant saga, wonderfully told.

    9. 1300+ pages of Arthurian goodness, focusing on Merlin's life from early childhood through advanced old age. I'd been wanting to read this series for years and was very pleased to find this electronic bundle - especially after getting drawn into BBC One's Merlin series. They complement each other very well.

    10. I still think these are the best books about the Arthurain legends, I particularly like the fact that it is told from Merlin's point of view. I'm leaving Mordred's story for now, will come back toit as a later date

    11. When I first read The Crystal Cave back in the '70's, I loved the romance of the story, set in the time of King Arthur. When I recently re-read it in the context of the 4-book series, I fell in love with the evocative language and the sense of time and place. This series is a keeper on my shelves.

    12. You're in for a lot of reading if you read all four of these books in a row. That said, the details in the complicated plots were unbelievable. As I was reading, I could hardly imagine what it must have taken to write these stories.

    13. Read and enjoyed before I learned about her and her husband. Now I don't even like to think of the book. Yes, sadly, I am so pedantic that the personality/actions of the artist does impact my perception of the art.

    16. I read this one because it was a five star on one of my friends' lists. It was good, but not my style.

    17. It's a four book bundle on your Kindle and It's so worth it. This series is a beautiful treatment of the Arthurian legend. So much detail, both historical and literary embellishment.

    20. My favorite treatment of the Merlin and Arthurian Legends since Mallory and Tennyson. As does the harp, the harp, the enchanter enchants.
