For centuries, I was the only one with magic.
Why? I don’t know. And I’m out of time to find out.
I’m Merlin. Perhaps you’ve heard of me. My friend Arthur died in fifth-century Wales, but I didn’t. Eternal youth is not as great as it sounds, when friends and family die and I am left alone.
But the mystery haunts me: why am I the only one with magic?
I thought this was a mystery that would remain forever unsolved until a volcanic eruption threatens a nearby town. At first, I didn’t care about the looming disaster—after living through the Black Plague, other death tolls seem insignificant—but it’s not natural. Someone with abilities like mine is forcing this disaster. If I can figure out what’s causing this eruption, I might finally discover why I’m different.
I am Merlin, after all—one of a kind.
Suave. Good-looking. Flair for languages. Magic powers.
Merry Lytton, or Merlin as he was once known, has been waiting for the return of his friend King Arthur for centuries. It's an eventful wait: only weeks ago, he stopped a wicked plot to magically erupt a nearby volcano. Merry's latest worry is the revelation of his immortality--his modern-day friends are a little too curious. They do not need to know he has a history that could fill a library.
Unknown to Merlin, the organization Potestas is furious at his geologic meddling, and an enraged member of the group is determined to wreak vengeance. For the first time in Merlin's ancient life, he must confront an enemy that is vastly more powerful than himself. Battling high in the skies and over mountain peaks, will Merlin's foe leave him breathless—forever?
An immortal who might finally have met his match.
Merry Lytton, known as Merlin in ages past, is now a spy in the organization Potestas. Their mission is to gain unimaginable powers, and their charismatic leader has welcomed Merry but keeps a close eye on him.
Merry discovers that Potestas must recover King Arthur’s lost grail to complete their nefarious plans. Unfortunately, it’s connected to the seafloor by magical means. He fears for his sanity when bodiless voices start taking over his mind. Against voices in his head and hostile spirits in the sea, can Merry stop Potestas before they unwittingly trigger a tsunami of epic proportions?
What are centuries-old secrets worth?
Immortal Merlin, known as Merry Lytton to his twenty-first century friends, is in a battle of wits with the powerful Potestas organization. Potestas is determined to gain unimaginable powers for its members, and Merry holds the key to unlocking this ambition. In exchange, Potestas promises to reveal crucial information on Merry's heritage and answer questions he's had for centuries. But when Merry learns that Potestas plans a human sacrifice, he is in a race against evil. Can he save an innocent life before a destructive new reality is thrust upon an unsuspecting world?
Immortal Merry Lytton, also known as the magician Merlin in centuries past, is blissfully reunited with his first friends and his long-lost love. But when a powerful elemental spirit tears through the forbidden barrier between worlds, Merry must decide whose side he's on. Will he honor his long-held humanity, or should he join the elemental world of his heritage that he's dreamed of forever?
