Centuries before he meets Arthur, Merlin wanders the earth, eternally young, a traveler on the path of magic and learning. During his journeys he encounters Jason and joins his search for the Golden Fleece. It is a decision that will cost him dear... Hundreds of years later, Merlin hears of a screaming ship in a northern lake and divines that it is the Argo... that Jason still screams out for his sons, stolen by the enchantress Medea and thought dead. But death is not the end, and Merlin's trek to the north leads to the revival of both man and ship, and a new quest, with new companions-to find Jason's sons.Roving from the frozen north to the blighted island that will become Arthur's realm, from the deep forests of ancient Britain to the sun-washed shores of ancient Greece, Merlin's journey is an epic tale of mystery and enchantment.

Clever weaving of celtic and european legends.Well written but not so gripping ( )

Tämä käynnistyi jotenkin hitaasti ja alussa teksti tuntui jotenkin töksähtelevältä. Ei ollenkaan sellaiselta minä Holdstockin tyylin muistin. Lopussa tätä töksähtelyä ei kuitenkaan huomannut.

Tarina on kiehtova ja yhdistää taas niin hienosti erilaisia myyttisiä aineksia. Metsä tuntuu olevan Holdstockille pakkomielle, mutta annettakoon se anteeksi, koska Holdstockin metsä on hyvin mielenkiintoinen.

Odotan tarinalle innolla jatkoa. ( )

Robert Holdstocks books always suck me right in. The Merlin Codex's mix of myth and legend is not an obvious one - Arthurian Britain meets Greek myths - but it works. Its got a very interesting take on Merlin,too. Holdstock has created another fascinating world. Loved it - loved the whole Codex series. ( )
