The final novel in the series inspired by the phenomenal mini-series MERLIN – the Arthurian legend told on a grand and epic scale!
MERLIN is the Arthurian legend with a difference – this time, the famous myth is told from Merlin’s point of view. It is above all a love story, following the wizard’s quest for the enchantress Nimue. He must use sorcery to battle the evil Queen Mab, cunning Morgan Le Fey, and tyrannical Lord Vortigern, seeking ways to end the bloodshed which has plagued England since the Christians first clashed with the followers of the old ways.
The traditional elements of the legend – the incestuous conception of Mordred, the founding of the Round Table, Queen Guinivere’s infidelity with Lancelot, the quest for the Holy Grail – all contribute to the emerging struggle between Merlin and the dark forces which threaten all of England. Ultimately, Merlin must choose between his love for Nimue and his sworn loyalty to Arthur, Camelot and his people.
This 4-part mini-series which took the US by storm was a huge success in the UK as well. And with what a cast: Sam Neill, Sir John Gielgud, Isabella Rossellini, Miranda Richardson, Rutger Hauer, Helena Bonham-Carter, Martin Short and James Earl Jones.

The triumphant conclusion to the enthralling Merlin trilogy
Britain, after years of bloody war and dark influence from the pervasive magic of Mab, powerful queen of the Old Ways, is finally, with the help of Wizard Merlin, peacefully united under the rule of King Arthur Pendragon and his beautiful wife Guinevere. But Arthur, paying for a monstrous sin in his past, vows to set out on a quest for the Holy Grail, and Merlin must seek out a champion to hold Britain while the King is gone. When Arthur defeats all of Artthur's Knghts at the Easter tourney, Merlin knows he has found Arthur's replacemnt. But Mab, scheming to topple Arthur out of her hatred for Merlin, causes Lancelot and Guinevere to fall passionately in love, and attempts a desperate final bid to resurrect the Old Ways and destroy Merlin in the process forever.
