Is magic dying?
In sixth century Britain the new religion Christianity wages war against the Druids and other people of nature, against magic itself. The persecution of sorcerers is ferocious.
Into these violent and dangerous times four children are born – Myrddin, Morrie, Arthur, Gwen. Their destiny is to come together only to be torn apart by love and fear. The kingdom of Caem Lw arises. On its throne are King Arthur and Queen Guinevere who transform a kingdom of aggression and oppression into a realm of prosperity and hope.
At their side is Myrddin Emrys, the greatest sorcerer the land has ever known. We know him as Merlin. This is the sweeping epic of the struggle for the survival of magic and the forces of nature against fanaticism and hatred.
Of the rise and fall of a king and queen and their realm.
Through it all – Merlin.
The man. The magician. The myth.
