#BookReview: The Sorcerer: Metamorphosis (Camulod Chronicles #6) by Jack Whyte






Synopsis: Throughout the widely praised Camulod Chronicles, Merlyn Britannicus has been driven by one sacred dream--to see Britain united under one just, powerful king. In The Sorcerer: Metamorphosis, it is time for the Sorcerer to fulfill his promise--to present the battle-proven Arthur as the Riothamus, the High King of Britain. When Arthur miraculously withdraws the Sword of Kingship from the stone in which it is set, he proves himself the true and deserving king--sworn to defend the Christian faith against invaders, and to preserve Britain as a powerful, united force.

The Sorcerer has fulfilled his promise. The King is crowned, Britain is united--and the face of history and legend is forever changed.

My Review:  
This one is probably my least favorite out of the series because it had me so emotional the entire time. It is absolutely fantastic and I couldn't put it down, but the number of times I cried over the loss of a major character was getting ridiculousby the end. In Metamorphosis Merlyn, Arthur, and all of the companions return to Camulod from Mediobogdum to fight the war against Ironhair and Carthac. Arthur and the boys are now young men and warriors in their own right and get their frst taste of battle and leadership. Merlyn also makes the transition from leader of Camulod to sorcerer by the end. It ends with Arthur finally seeing the brilliant Excalibur and pulling it from the stone during his coronation as high king of Brittian. 










Review

“From the building blocks of history and the mortar of reality, Jack Whyte has built Arthur's world, and showed us the bone beneath the flesh of legend.” ―Diana Gabaldon

“The Camulod Chronicles [continue] with this finely crafted, altogether satisfying book. When Arthur takes the sword from the stone and makes it 'sing,' we are there with him and the legend becomes fully fleshed. The best book in a series that started strong and just kept getting better. Read this book even if you haven't read the others in the series.” ―Salem Statesman-Journal
