The Most Magical Adventure Of All Time.
In a time long past, when magic was fading from the world of men, the malevolent sorceress Mab summoned forth a mighty wizard to keep the power of the Old Ways alive. The wizard’s name… was Merlin. But when his heart is touched by the love of the beautiful Nimue, Merlin turns away from Mab’s dark enchantments. Allying himself with the young warrior who will rise to become the legendary King Arthur, Merlin pledges his mystic skills to Arthur’s visionary cause: bringing peace and justice to the realm haunted by monsters and ravaged by war–and setting the stage for the ultimate clash of Good versus Evil.
