At first I thought this book is meant for far younger people and being an author myself I persisted mainly because I wished to see how Robin had handled using long words I am so pleased I continued because not only was my question answered the author had used the words then offered a glossary, something I would never have considered for younger readers.Within the 1st few pages I knew that the author had been or was a schoolteacher because, in his writing, questions are asked which he volunteers [...]

This tale is told with a perspective I would have never considered At first I was a little surprised to find the tale told when Gordon was just a small baby, but as the time passed, an exquisite tale began to unfold that has the power to capture both the young and adult reader Gordon s unique view of the world is one that many of us could learn from Who can not find a smile when a bully has his comeuppance Who would not wish for an imaginary friend who could really stand between you and the harm [...]

Myrddin s Heir, Book 1 A Wizard of Dreams is a delightful, fresh twist on aspects of Arthurian legend, in the style of Susan Cooper s The Dark is Rising series We follow the tale of the early years of Gordon, a boy with extraordinary powers and a legendary destiny, on a journey of self discovery through several fascinating adventures that had me eagerly turning the pages From antics in school to a quite literally haunting family vacation in the British countryside, to Avalon itself, this book sp [...]

HAPPINESS, SADNESS, MYSTERY AND MAGIC Fantasy is not normally the kind of book I read, but because I m in a book club it forced me to take a look I must say I was captivated from the beginning when Gordon was born and his alter ego was there with him Zack has been with Gordon ever since I like the way Robin works the characters into my heart Gordon especially and his sidekick Zack But his mother Edith never ceased to amaze me with her own ability to perceive a situation and mind read almost as w [...]

Gracious me, what a lovely surprise A WIZARD OF DREAMS is The writing is superb and bright, a modern invocation of ancient, mythical powers colored by Brit English Without pandering to mainstream, fantasy expectations, this modern story chronicles the early life of a supernaturally gifted, marginalized boy named Gordon, and his invisible guide, Zack Like any good Dickensian protagonist, Gordon encounters difficulties that reveal the underbelly of his world, the dirty edges of a real society How [...]

From the first sentence, I found Robin Chambers A Wizard of Dreams charming, fun, inventive, and intriguing I loved the childhood struggles and the resulting dream sequences The characters were well drawn, and I found myself hoping for redemption for even the meanest bully Mysterious power, magic, and history are on display in this first book in the Myrddin s Heir series I highly recommend this read for all ages

Review brought by Geekly ReviewWhen Robin Chambers asked me if I was interested in reviewing Myrddin s Heir, A Wizard of Dreams , I can honestly say that I didn t know what to expect at all Reading has always been a pastime and hobby of mine, but as time has gone by I have increasingly moved into darker types of literature rather than their innocent counterparts So, despite the fact that this novel falls out of the genres I m used to reading, did I enjoy it Certainly I have a soft spot for the [...]

Myrddin s Heir, Book 1 A Wizard of Dreamsby Robin ChambersTo really enjoy the book, it s important to understand that it is the beginning of a long series That puts the style and action in perspective I forget how long the series is going to be but it s long enough to reach double figures of books and for the author to express concerns about living to finish it I hope he does because once you get into the way the story is told it s fun Gordon and Zac, his invisible friend or at least, invisible [...]

A Wizard of Dreams follows the fates of precocious child Gordon, who has many very special magical talents and a not so imaginary friend, Zack My Wee Girls are big fantasy and adventure fans, so I read this to them at bedtime over a couple of weeks the bitesized chapters seem made for this Though they re just 8 and 3 thus younger than the suggested age range for the book , my girls enjoyed the book a great deal, with the 8yo even talking about what might happen next several times when we were on [...]

A Wizard of Dreams by Robin Chambers myrddinsheir RRBCthis book, and it s adventures of Gordon and Zack, would be excellent for the younger set I would even go so far as to say that it would make a fun bedtime story read for the really young some might look at the few complicated words and exclude it from the extremely young reading list, but we always loved words in my house, and I learned how to use and enjoy these words by having those around me refrain from simplifying their own language I m [...]

I spent each night reading A Wizard of Dreams with my nine year old We would take turns reading a chapter at time, enjoying every minute of this book What was certainly a five star read for myself, was of a ten star book for my son he loved it It has, by far, been his favorite summertime reading material to this point Mr Chambers has laced an intriguing story with a plethora of wonderful lessons and teaching points that had my son craving I haven t seen my son that engrossed in a book in some [...]

Posted on behalf of my son 12 years old.I really enjoyed the story which I felt was interesting with lots of original characters I liked the way magic was portrayed in the book and that there was a mix of humour as well It was very easy to read and I think it would appeal to other children of my ag who enjoy magical adventures.

This was a very good story with strong characters The first several chapters were difficult for me to follow It seemed to jump around It didn t feel smooth to read The second half of the book had a much smoother flow to it This book just didn t fit me well.

This is a YA book by author intent The story is good for the age group the writing style is meant for And by that, I mean the younger end of the YA age group There are some stylistic issues, plot issues, etc that can be passed over due to this Some issues can be credited to the book being written by an Englishman for kids he is familiar with.The main thing here is to know your kids Know what they can handle and what they can t There are some scenes in this, that could scare or give nightmares to [...]

A Wizard of Dreams Myrddin s Heir by Robin Chambers is a very well written book I would venture to place this story into the YA Fantasy genre as its hero and its supporting characters are all contained within the world of a youth young adult and in my opinion would appeal to this age audience most strongly I purchased this novel because it was the most appealing selection presented for reading review in an online book club I am also a big fan of fantasy, Tolkien and Lewis being among my favorite [...]

Not since reading C.S Lewis s Narnia books have I so much enjoyed a novel written for children of all ages, especially those who have managed to preserve the infinitely curious magical child in their heart In his Myrddin s Heir series Robin Chambers masterfully brings magic right up to date, while exciting the imagination about its long reach of influence in the past.So far I have only read the first book, A Wizard of Dreams, but am eagerly anticipating continuing the adventure throughout the re [...]

What an amazing book is Myrddin s Heir, A Wizard of Dreams, by Robin Chambers The first in a series, it is the story of the early years of a young boy apprentice named Gordon Apprentice to whom, I won t say that s half the fun Gordon is quite different from the other children Among his differences is the fact that he has an imaginary friend, Zack, with whom he converses The two of them are inseparable, and Gordon holds sway with the bullies at preschool and later primary school with Zack s help [...]

Gordon Bennett is a precocious modern day lad who at age five months can use his first words to introduce Ma ma to Zack though at first she takes the name as baby babble It takes months for her to misidentify Zack as an imaginary friend and years to learn that Gordon and Zack are far than your average, or even precocious, pair of boys imaginary and real.Fun and refreshingly sophisticated for a children s tale of modern wizardry, A Wizard Of Dreams is Book 1 in The Myrddin s Heir series by auth [...]

Interesting book I enjoyed A Wizard of Dreams, but it took a while for me to get into the story I didn t understand what the book was about in the beginning, but when I did later, I enjoyed the book very much I would have gotten into the story much earlier if I had watched the book video first I didn t make the connection that Gordon was to be Myrddin s Merlin s replacement when Myrddin passed on to wherever wizards pass on to.Another misstep on my part was not noticing the helpful hint at the b [...]

Stimulates the imagination Wizards, fairies, spirits from long ago, time travel, mental telepathy and a Spirit attendee are just part of the adventure you ll find in The Wizard of Dreams From the first paragraph, we know that Gordon, who is just moving out of his toddler years and ready to begin school, is an extraordinary boy He has what his mum refers to as a imaginary friend, but whom we find as we read on is either a guardian angel, spirit guide, or an alter ego of this extremely gifted chil [...]

I was intrigued by this book s aim to be for ages 10 110 years, how could it appeal to both children and adults alike Well the simple answer is, it just does The adventures into fantasy and dreamlands appeal to younger readers my eldest daughter and the well written descriptions and dialogue were most entertaining for me.I loved the way the story develops as the main character Gordon grows I really had no idea of where the story was going at the start With each chapter Gordon s relationship with [...]

Robin Chambers has written a truly magical story which can be enjoyed by adults as well as children For those people like myself who were born and brought up in a very different country with a different language and culture, it was an opportunity to learn a lot about Myrddin and the mythologies surrounding the wizard Merlin as well as getting insights into what it is like to live in the United Kingdom.Gordon s adventures did not let me off the hook He was born with magical powers and a guardian [...]
