Celtika (The Merlin Codex #1) - Robert Holdstock 7.58   53

Centuries before he meets Arthur, Merlin wanders the Earth, eternally young, a traveller on the path of magic and learning. During his journeys he encounters Jason, whose search for the Golden Fleece he joins. 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, and 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.

Celtika begins The Merlin Codex, a new series from Robert Holdstock, Britain’s premier author of the fantastical. Roving from the frozen north to the blighted and ghostly island which will become Arthur’s realm, from the deep forests familiar to Holdstock’s readers from his Award-winning Mythago Wood and Lavondyss to the ancient sanctuaries of Greece, Merlin’s journeying is rich with incident, character and history. Celtika mines a deep vein of epic tale, mystery and enchantment.
