Legends have been told about Merlin for millennia. Of his accomplishments and skills. Of his destiny and goals. Of his relationship to King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. Ballads have been sung about him, stories, legends, poems, and other works of literature have been written about him. But never like this. In a future world, Albion has fallen. Darkness reigns over the land, and those who have the power to stop it are either enslaved, imprisoned, or unaware they hold such power. Rumors run rampant in the streets, whispers slip from tongue to tongue. They say the Crown Prince didn't die with the rest of his family as they were cut down before the populace. They say he escaped into a village far away, and was carefully plotting his return and revenge. They say a child was born that was impervious to Urien's mental prowess, who withstood his wrath and also escaped into the unknown. But the rumors quickly fade to legend and fable, twisted by the voice of Urien. No one can stand before the face of his terrible power--not without aid. The Prince has been hidden in a village far from the Capitol, unaware of what transpires, of who he is, or what destiny awaits him. The child also lives in the same village, and has lived with the Prince their whole lives. But when a devastating explosion rocks their world, the truth comes out, and the pair are forced on a dangerous quest, uncertain of who to trust. Will they find the allies they need to destroy Urien? Or will they fail, as yet another demonstration of the Dark Lord's terrible power?
