I'm falling behind on my Norton reading. I suppose I shouldn't read anything in between. But there are so many books.

MERLIN'S MIRROR by Andre Norton

It took me a while to read this book. It is a Science Fiction version of the story of Arthur.
People from another planet have left a "beacon" on our world. Their planet is falling to war, and they want to plant their seed on another planet..... literally. So Myrddin is born. And he finds a cavern with working machines, a mirror for teaching, and a healing box. His purpose is to bring to life another of the "star born", and this child is to be the one to bring all of the island (England) together. This he manages to do as the renamed Merlin, he fosters the child with a family of kin. But there is no light without darkness and the girl, Nimue, traps him in his cave for 16 years.

This follows most of the "Mort d'Arthur" story, save no Lancelot. It just reads slowly, and is much less cheerful that the books I've been reading lately.... Hmmm maybe I shouldn't say that as I'm also reading a C.S. Harris Period Piece Mystery (Regency), with lots of gore. I think I'll re-read a Danna Andrews book.
