Revelations ( The Merlin Chronicles Book 1 ) by Daniel Diehl is unlike any other Merlin tale you have ever read! Merlin has arrived in the 21st century and things will never be the same. Jason, his unexpected sidekick, and Merlin go off on a merry romp.As you can tell from the credits and bio below, Daniel might be associated with far different genres than this, and one might expect a ho-hum boring tale. Quite the contrary. There is action throughout the entire story and Daniel has done his Arthurian home work to the max.

At the bottom, underneath the picture of Daniel with his cool mustache, I have included his Amazon Author Page link so you check out his other great books.

Revelations ( The Merlin Chronicles Book 1 ) is a fantastic Holiday book for your Kindle or Christmas stocking. Take it from me.

Book Description

October 4, 2014
Merlin the Magician only exists in myth and legend – at least that’s what archaeology student Jason Carpenter thought until he discovered the mysterious orb that had housed history’s greatest wizard for 1,600 years.

Forced into an uneasy alliance, Jason and Merlin are sucked into a web of deceit, intrigue and murder that sends them on a chaotic race to outwit, and out run, Merlin’s ancient nemesis, the evil sorceress Morgana le Fay, her gang of drug smugglers and a 500 year-old Chinese necromancer. Tis a race against time to complete their quest before an army of dragons are unleashed on a vulnerable and unsuspecting 21st century world.

Editorial Reviews


I was delighted to read Revelations: book one of The Merlin Chronicles by Daniel Diehl. This is an intriguing novel that made me lose track of time while reading. I enjoyed the suspenseful drama and creativity of this book. The characters were impressive, especially Merlin and Morgana. Morgana was a real psycho, and Diehl developed her malicious personality perfectly, which made this story more entertaining. The descriptive sequence of events connected well. I thought the conclusion was great, and hope for the opportunity to read book 2 in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Merlin Chronicles October 12, 2013
A cool, fantasy twist on an age-old legend. Love the author's detailed descriptions and some day I think this will be a classic. Kudos to Diehl for bringing Merlin into the 21st century. It's a must-read! 
5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome story December 12, 2013
I’m a huge fan of Arthurian fantasy, and this one I found absolutely Amazing.

The way Daniel captured Merlin and chuck him into the 21st century, was superb. He’s characters are extremely well developed, Jason being our MC, and archaeologist that dug up an orb, dated back a time when those orbs weren’t found. The orb carried Merlin’s essence and I’m sure you can get the picture how this story starts.

I’m not going to give anything away from this novel. It’s one worth buying and you won’t be disappointed. I can promise you that.

I personally love it when a fantasy is realistic and Daniel has written it beautiful.

I couldn’t put it down.
