    1 thought on “Martyr's Fire

    1. A story so full of mystery that keeps the reader guessing as to how the loose ends will eventually tie up, and memorable characters leaping right out of its pages, the third and, perhaps, the final installment in the Merlin's Immortals series is medieval fiction at its best.The medieval period is a period of uncertainty. Castles, dark dungeons, nobles, knights, druids, priests, treachery, holy grail, secrets, conspiracies, power struggles are the hallmarks of the period. One false move, and a ki [...]

    2. Martyr's Fire is the third book in the Merlin's Immortals series. It is a revised and expanded version of The Winds of Light series. I do not know how many books there are in the series, but this is definitely not the final book. While it is an integral part of the whole, this book can be read independently. I have not read any other books from this author as of yet, nor have I read any of the other books in this series. Obviously, there are important events in the first two books that provide a [...]

    8. Thomas is now the ruler of Magnus, but not for long when the Priests of the Holy Grail arrive and take control while displaying wondrous acts and miracles, but something deeper and darker is underfoot, and it is up to Thomas to figure it out.Martyr's Fire takes you back in time when history and fable blur the lines of fact, but that's the beauty of speculative fiction.

    10. Age Appropriate For: 10 + for violence, Druids, and mild romanceBest for Ages: 10 - 18I have been snapping up this series to review as each book has come out. Set in my favorite time period (the Middle Ages), and full of nonstop adventure, how could I help but love it? On a lazy Sunday afternoon I picked up this book to read and finished it in a day.Again I was plunged into the battle of good versus evil in Magnus. The young ruler, Thomas has new enemies, the Priests of the Holy Grail, who are n [...]

    11. Martyr's Fire by Sigmund Brouwer was a work of fiction that proved interesting and yet challenging for me to understand at the same time. It, in my opinion, was hard to pick up at book three. I kept hoping it would come together despite my not having read the previous two books. It never really did.I did enjoy the fast pace of the book, along with the air of mystery associated with Thomas and Katherine's characters. The significance of the dog was lost on me. I did not get it. A loyal companion [...]

    12. Martyr's Fire by Sigmund Brouwer reminded me of the 1970s second movie in the three-part series of Star Wars; the second movie wasn't my favorite because it felt unfinished, like a bridge between two major story lines. Martyr's Fire is book three in Merlin's Immortals and my least favorite—a bridge between books.Part of this novel could have been added to Fortress of Mist and the other part to book four. Related to the short feel of this novel, but unrelated to the novel, my friend on Facebook [...]

    13. The book Martyr's Fire, is an adventure type book set in the time of knights. Main characters include Thomas, the Lord of Magnus who finds he is an immortal, Katherine, who is an immortal seeking to help him recover Magnus and the secrets of the Immortals, and Isabelle, a druid who wants to destroy them both and regain control of Magnus for her father who was "demoted" after Thomas took the fortress of Magnus from him. This book took me a while to get into; it was hard to tell who were the "good [...]

    15. One of the third in the series of "Merlin's Immortals". A story about the Holy Grail and conquering kingdoms with a hint of religious undertone.I found this book hard to read. To the credit of the author it had nothing to do with lack of details or lack of well-formed characters. Actually it was the oppose it. The plot was good, scenes described nicely and characters were believable. My problem was due to the fact I didn’t read the first two books in the series. I requested this book to review [...]

    16. “Martyr’s Fire” Brings Further Twists and Turns to the “Merlin’s Immortals” SeriesSet in England of the early 1300’s, the “Merlin’s Immortals” series begins with a young man named Thomas. Raised as an orphan in a monastery, the young man’s life takes a series on unforeseen turns in the first of the books and suddenly he is cast into a world where unseen forces create circumstances he never imagined.

    17. This is a book for that young reader in your life (although I am enjoying the series as well). This is for the teen or tween who likes the Harry Potter type of book. But this book has spiritual elements peppered throughout to give the young reader something to think about.I have read the first two book in the series and I think if you haven’t read those you might be a bit confused. It even took me a few chapters to remember everything that happened in the first two books. Therefore, I do recom [...]

    18. Martyr’s Fire is set in Medieval England, and is about the past life of a local king that is in a difficult situation because the past that is surrounding his current life. The story is interesting and with enough excitement to keep your interest. I do think you need to read Books one and two of the series to really understand the story like the author means for readers to understand. Sometimes it was difficult to following along, and I would loose track of what was happening and have to read [...]

    19. This book is the third by this author in the Merlin's Immortals series. Thomas escapes Magnus and is on a quest. With his kingdom being invaded, he fled and is in search of answers. There are assumptions, Druids, misunderstandings and friends throughout the story. Thomas must make decisions and his search isn't an easy one.I really enjoy this author's writing style. The challenges that Thomas faces are to strengthen his character and it works great. The chapters are short and the book is an easy [...]

    20. In Book 3, we find Thomas had to abandon the throne and is now a wanted man. He is still struggling with trying to decide who can be trusted, especially after all that happened in Magnus. As he travels and tries to find answers, he comes across some fantastic characters, finds old "friends" and learns more about both the Druids and the Immortals.As with the first two books, this was a page-turner for me. Diving into the world of mystery, confusion and evil, I wanted to find out about things as m [...]

    21. This is the third book in the Merlin's Immortals series by Sigmund Brouwer. I have previously read the first two of the series and enjoyed them pretty well. To me this is the best one of the series so far. The action in this one seemed to be at a faster pace and didn't have a lot of what was 'page filler'. It pretty much kept my attention through out and made me not want to put it down. Finally some answers are given to Thomas as to what is going on with Katherine and Hawkwood. Not all the answe [...]

    22. When Priests of the Holy Grail show up in Magnus, Thomas flees the castle and sets out on a journey to the Holy Land in search of answers. He runs into Katherine along the way and is convinced that she is a Druid. Katherine, however, is convinced that Thomas is the Druid. And so they reluctantly partner up, even though they cannot trust the other.This in book three in the series, and while I enjoyed the continuing story, this book was filled with traveling and waiting for the next big thing to h [...]

    23. I absolutely love love love this series!!!I was super thrilled to be able to get lost again in the magical world created by Sigmund Brouwer.I love the main character Thomas, who has risen from orphan (The Orphan King, book 1) to conqueror (Fortress of Mist, book 2) but in Martyr’s Fire, Thomas will once again battle the Druids for Magnus.There are so many awesome characters in this series and the author does a wonderful job of keeping readers on the fence with who Thomas can believe and who he [...]

    24. Martyr’s Fire is full of intrigue, mystery and action. Although this is the third book in the series Merlin’s Immortals, it is not absolutely necessary that you read the first two books to follow along and understand the story. The setting of this book is medieval days and reminds me of the “Knights of the Roundtable.” Closer to the end of the book, the author even includes a very familiar person /character: Robin Hood! What fun! The writing style of the author is enjoyable. The chapters [...]

    25. As I began reading this book I realized I should have read the first two in the series, as some of the characters were introduced in those books and their history had begun.But with that said, the story was so full of mystery that it kept you guessing about how everything would end up. The book is set during the Medieval times of castles,noblemen,knights,the druids,the holy Grail and deep dark dungeons. In this segment fifteen monks of the Priests of the Holy Grail arrive in Magnus. They preform [...]

    26. Martyr's Fire is the third book of the Merlin's Immortals series. Although I wish I'd read the previous book in the series, Martyr's fire stands on its own just fine. A really good read with a great plot and plenty of action to keep you interested. The characters are compelling and you are drawn into their world immediately.Thomas loses the Kingom of Magnus to priests who turn out to be Druids. He starts out on a journey, unknowingly watched over by Katherine and Hawkwood and accompanied by his [...]

    27. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. The characters had depth and flaws and felt well fleshed out. While the third in a series, I was still able to understand what was going on without feeling like I really missed important events. The plot moved along at a fine pace, never slowing too much or skipping ahead too fast. The entire work is well written, intriguing and keeps the pages turning. It wasn't long before I found myself pulling for the main characters and speaking aloud in response to [...]

    28. I received this book for free in exchange for my honest reviewThe synopsis of this book drew me in. It was everything i love in a book. I was a bit hesitant to request this as I've not read the first 2 in this series. I will say that was a downfall. While i was enjoying the story and characters i was still very lost. I think had i started from the first book i would have had a better understanding of the content i was reading. The story was great, characters were wonderful and i think i will mos [...]

    29. Having not read the 2nd book in the series, I did feel as if I was missing part of the story, something I hate when reading. but I knew that coming into the book.Thomas, the main character, is now a wanted man, and is struggling finding out who he can trust and believe in. The book is well written and well paced. There's a lot of good verses evil in the book, but can be read more as an adventure novel then necessarily as a Christian book.I did like this one more than the first book in the series [...]

    30. Nice, very nice. The saga continues and will go on after this book, which is just another chapter in whole story. My grandson will love this series, and I am enjoying it as well. Hawkwood, who was left for dead, will undoubtedly reappear. The two girls vying for Thomas's heart struggle on. He believes neither of them. It's a good yarn and well told.
