    Summary

    EXCERPT:

    “What are you doing?” Merlin asked, sounding tired. “The war is over. Magic is no longer banned. Take your men and go home. Live your lives in peace.”

    “There can be no peace so long as that castle stands!” the sorcerer yelled.

    Merlin ignored him, addressing the three others by his side instead. “This isn’t what magic is for. You know it isn't. If you listen to people like him, you will be driven into the same darkness that forced me to end Morgana’s life. Is that really what you want?”

    The three men glanced at each other.

    Uncertain, Gwen thought.

    The sorcerer in black let out a yell, and thrust his arm forward, a fireball flying from his hand.

    Merlin barely spared it a glance.

    ------------

    SUMMARY:

    A year after Arthur's death, and magic is permitted once again in Camelot. But Uther's legacy lives long, and many want revenge for his crimes, now with magic at their disposal.

    As Camelot stands faced with an army lead by four sorcerers, there is but one who can save them all -- if only he can be persuaded to leave his silent vigil, upon the shores of Avalon.

    Summary

    Rome is even more the majestic city Arthur imagined centuries ago, as he’d listened to his tutors’ lessons.  Imperial antiquity breathes from every stone, somehow made even more grandiose in comparison to the modern buildings among them.

    Unlike their trip to London five months ago, Merlin is comfortable amid the modern chaos. Despite cars speeding past on too-narrow stone roads, and tourists clogging pavements beneath towering monuments, Merlin shows no signs of distress.

    Arthur, to his own surprise, is at ease as well. Not bad for a man born fifteen centuries ago, he thinks, more than once.  It’s an immodest thought, one more befitting the king he was, or perhaps still is, depending upon your point of view. 

    He knows he should let go of such arrogant old habits. But on this one topic, he thinks he’s entitled.

    It isn’t many people, after all, who could handle being murdered as a king only to emerge from a lake fifteen centuries later, to discover a land he no longer knows. To say nothing of having to prevent a predestined apocalypse days later. Or deal with being in a relationship with Merlin, who he's apparently been in love with since the first day they met.

    Summary

    If you've read "And Like The Cycle of the Year We Begin Again", and its sequel "Our Destinies Our Own", you'll enjoy this little text exchange, in which Merlin and Arthur share the news of their engagement with their friends in Avalon...

    ... with some unexpected -- and humorous -- consequences.

    Well. Perhaps not so humorous for Heath. But that's what you get, when you mock a sorcerer. :)

    Summary

    For many long years Merlin waited.

    For the other part of his soul, for the other half of his life. He was born to serve Arthur. So that meant he was also born to wait. Even if it took a thousand years. Even if the wait seemed never to end.

    Until one day, suddenly, it did.

    ------
