Publisher Description

The spellbinding, suspenseful story of how Merlin, the Enchanter, helped Arthur become the king of all Britain—a magnificent novel set in a time when no life is safe, no law stable

Keeping watch over the young Arthur Pendragon, the prince and prophet Merlin Ambrosius is haunted by dreams of the magical sword Caliburn, which has been hidden for centuries. When Uther Pendragon is killed in battle, the time of destiny is at hand, and Arthur must claim the fabled sword to become the true High King of Britain.

The prophetic voice of Merlin communicates not only the bristling atmosphere of the story’s ancient setting but also its profound relevance to our own time. Once again, as she did in her bestselling The Crystal Cave, Mary Stewart provides a glowing re-creation of pre-Camelot England.

  • “Narrator Derek Perkins is a perfect guide into the fifth century and the legend of King Arthur, told from magician Merlin’s point of view…Perkins delivers appropriate solemnity to Merlin’s remembrances, while his infusion of youth and urgency identify Arthur. He slips in and out of secondary characters deftly, gliding over difficult place names and showing remarkable dexterity with names that have almost no vowels.”
