Merlin's Descendants Bibliography

Here is a list of books I used to research the Merlin's Descendants books. I cannot promise that I have read all of every book, but I have looked into every one and used parts of most. Of course I also tapped the minds of a number of people who have more expertise than I in certain areas. Some of my copies of these books are too old to have ISBN numbers. They may have been reprinted by the same or different publishers. The list has the information I have. You may have to research some of the titles to find copies. I hope you have as much fun browsing library shelves and used book stores as much as I did.
