By land and water shall it go home, and lie hidden in the floating stone until by fire it shall be raised again .
Arthur has raised the sword and claimed his birthright as High King of Briton, determined to unite the many tiny kingdoms that make up his country. Now he sits upon his throne at Camelot with Merlin by his side, his most trusted adviser.

But Merlin is growing old, and his sight is dimming. He knows that Mordred, child of Arthur's unknowing union with his half-sister Morgause, will be Arthur's downfall. But he cannot see the future clearly enough to know why, or how - or when.

And he's distracted: his gifted young apprentice, Niniane, is more than meets the eye. As Merlin teaches her to control her powers, he seems to lose his own.

Merlin has secured Arthur's place in history. Now he must take his own.

I loved this entire trilogy and the final book was no exception. Merlin came alive through all of the books and his character stayed consistent as a child to an older adult. I loved the fact that his "magical talents" were realistically written. In other words, he's not tossing pots and pans in the air as the Disney character. His talents were something I could easily see happening in the real world. He was a real character for me, which I appreciated.

The story is a good detailed telling of familiar touchstones of the Arthurian legend-- the building of Camelot, the abduction of Guinevere, the threat of Mordred-- as Merlin declines in power and confronts a formidable enemy: the witch Morgause. I just wish the author gave Merlin a more active role in events instead of such a passive one.

"You have just been telling me that love cannot be ruled or stopped. If you are prepared to accept love, knowing that it may well bring you to your death, then how much more should I accept this, knowing that it cannot destroy friendship or faith?"
