|Plot Summary of The Hollow Hills - Arthurian Saga 2|
The second book in Mary Stewart's "Merlin Trilogy," this first person narrative focuses on Merlin trying to protect and teach the young Arthur without the boy realizing who he is, or anybody else realizing who the boy is, either. People are looking for the boy... both to ensure his safety, as well as to eliminate him as a threat to the throne. Although this book is told from Merlin's perspective, it is as much about Arthur as it is about him.
