Laura is an insipid character who does nothing to redeem herself after her behaviour but, in reaso, feels justified in betraying her husband.And where does Merlin the Magician come into som of tha?

This story neve failed to fin the most of the egend and bring it into a modern love story that you ca elieve in and enjoy.

his autobiography ha th little different than her signature witch books but it only had some of my avorite elements such as th mystical setting and strong heroine that many readers can relate it.

I personally was kind of ut off by Laura ’ s wife in the eginning so I wasn ’ t completely put off by her attraction to guy but at the same time, Rhys was not the ‘ knight in shining armor ’ that I had hoped.I liked that he tory of Merlin and Laura were woven together….past and present, but part of Merlin ’ s story seemed a little wanting for me.

This main protagonist in the contemporary setting, Laura, is ikable, yet flawed.
