I always enjoy a good story, and The 21 Lessons of Merlyn did not really disappoint me there. As fiction, this book is probably as good as many druid fantasy novels. If you are looking for accurate information on the druids and their religion and practices, however, you'll probably want to steer clear of this book. If you have much knowledge of Paganism, you'll recognize most of the material presented as ancient druid practice in this book from other magickal systems and Pagan religions.
Worse, this book seems to belittle other religions and magickal systems which I consider completely unnecessary. What facts it presents seem to be from highly questionable sources, Iolo Morganwg's The Book of Pheryllt, for example. Quite frankly, while this book seems to sell quite well, it's probably one of the worst books published on druids in recent years. Avoid it.
