The Hollow Hills

by

The countryside of England and Wales in the Dark Ages forms an almost tangible background to this wonderfully and powerfully realised picture of an ancestral hero coming to manhood. The Hollow Hills is the brilliant portrayal of the young Arthur from his birth to accession to the throne of Britain. And behind and around him is the strong, yet vulnerable figure of Merlin who sees and knows so much but is powerless to prevent the strife and violence of his turbulent times. The Hollow Hills was first published in 1973 and tells the story of Merlin's guardianship of Arthur. He leads Arthur to the sword that tests his claim to power and the crown. Hide synopsis

A pleasure in known events

by Ellyb on Aug 30, 2008

Merlin Ambrosius as written by Mary Stewart may be one of my favorite narrators. There is immense pleasure in how calm, intense, and sharp he is, and it gives an interesting edge to the narrative, because he isn't the type to spill his secrets in the narration. There is plenty of suspense in how he ... More

Great Sequel...Could stand alone

by basketcase on Jul 17, 2007

This is a wonderful sequel to the Crystal Cave, however it could also stand alone as a fantastic novel on its own. Mary Stewart has taken the Authurian Legend and transformed it into a story with events and characters so vivid that you feel transported into their world. The cast of characters become ... More
