My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Some use a term “guilty pleasure”, but I’m not feeling guilty at all. Sometimes I just want a break from the heavier or tedious stuff I’m reading and fall back on a favorite or two.

I had a book club two volume edition (yellow and green jackets with the same Frazetta art) that I nearly wore out as a late teen. This series – at least the Corwin Cycle…never made it past the second in the Merlin five – is one of my favorites to re-read.

Light, quick, imaginative, temporally colloquial…not deep, but still fun.
