"Once upon a, no, that's not the way to start. You'll think this is a fairy tale. And it isn't".

In the terrible years of tyrants and invaders, England's surviving pagans cry out for help to their deity -- and Mab, Queen of the Faery realms, creates for them a champion.

Merlin. Half human, half Magic; raised in the love of his foster mother, Ambrosia, trained in sorcery by the gnome Frick, destined by Mab to lead England back to the Old Ways. But Mab, once beloved, has grown selfish and cruel, so Merlin turns against her.

And their war of magic will change the world.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not your normal post-movie fare Unlike most books "based on" some media event, this book does not simply read like a screenplay. While strictly adhering to the storyline of the mini-series, this book elaborates on many of the key scenes, while giving a much deeper insight into the thoughts and feelings of the characters. For those who've seen the movie, the "training" Merlin receives in Mab's land of magic is greatly elaborated on, and his decision is much better understood. I really liked the mini-series, but was wary of these books, as I've been disappointed in the past. Don't be - they're all simply wonderful!
