With alchemy and dragon’s fire, your fortune shall unfold For with each book the prize enriches by a grain of gold. So if you seek and find herein the fabled golden spell Merlin’s wand is yours to keep and all the gold as well.
In the mists of time, dark sorcerers tried to destroy our world. Only the power of three great wizards, Merlin, Blaise and Kells, could stop them. They gathered at Stonehenge to forge a great Wand to preserve the earth.
To symbolize the Earth itself: a fabulous crystal ball, of 150-million-year old rutillated Brazilian crystal. Around the crystal, a flaming corona of solid silver and 24 carat gold, a magical wall of flame to protect the world. The crystal ball is set upon a great branch – forged of solid silver – representing the Tree of Life itself: the gnarled oak growing within the circle at Stonehenge. And all about the Wand runic symbols of solid gold, alchemical sigils and a powerful touchstone of precious lapis lazuli.
The Wand has been lost for centuries: but now it has been found. It lies in a safe and secret place, to be freed only by the person who can break the code. Woven into the beautiful illustrations, the mythical symbols and the story of Merlin and the enchantress Nimue, is a fiendishly difficult puzzle.
A thousand clues: but only one solution: the spell of alchemy, that will unlock the wand.

“The Merlin Mystery must be considered one of the most challenging puzzles since the Enigma project of World War II. I think it’s quite brilliant – an elaborately constructed but ultimately solvable puzzle which will give millions of people great fun, frustration and a sense of achievement. But it’s going to take a long time for anyone to solve it – it’s fiendish!”
