The Merlin Effect

I will start by saying that I am HUGE T.A. Barron fan. If there is anyone looking for an amazing fantasy story packed with adventure, T.A.Barron is the author for you. Even though this book starts out a bit slow, it progresses steadily until you can't put it down. This is the third book of his with Kate Gordon as the main character, and it is terrific. This time, her adventure takes place underwater, with an ancient monk, a legendary ship, a massive whirpool, songs of the whales, magic, and much more. READ THIS BOOK!

The Merlin Effect

This is a story about a young girl, Kate Gordon, who is somewhat of an adventurer. She loves to explore unfamiliar places, and do unfamiliar things. In this book, her father is trying to discover what happened to an ancient vessel, which sunk long ago, by a timeless whirlpool. As the story unfolds, Kate finds that Merlin and his horn are somehow connected to this ship. This book is an epic story and a brilliant tale of Merlin.
