This is book number 1 in the The Merlin Series series.
This wonderful trilogy has been unavailable for years and now...finally...a new edition! Anyone who loves historical fiction will be delighted. The author based these novels on the historical as well as the legendary evidence for Merlin and the whole Arthurian myth. The other two books are: "The Hollow Hills" and "The Last Enchantment". Fantastic — Karen Frank
Born the bastard son of a Welsh princess, Myridden Emrys -- or as he would later be known, Merlin -- leads a perilous childhood, haunted by portents and visions. But destiny has great plans for this no-man's-son, taking him from prophesying before the High King Vortigern to the crowning of Uther Pendragon . . . and the conception of Arthur -- king for once and always.
