Merlin & The Magic

Of Time

The Once and Future Chronicles

Book 2

Merlin and Elanor are ripped apart after a mortal wound. With the desperate hope she is still alive, Merlin hurdles through time to find her but quickly discovers more than he bargained for in modern day Wales. Hidden amongst the crowded city streets lurk dark shadows and vengeful demons bent on destroying the promise of the new kingdom. Osian’s witchcraft has reached into what remains of the old catacombs of Arthur’s tomb, threatening to stop Merlin from awakening the Once and Future King. What is worse, the dragon’s Magic of Time is unpredictable, and Merlin struggles to find a pathway home—if one even exists.

Elanor’s adopted father, David, points the way to the remnants of the ancient past, while his son Jack is pricked with jealousy, opening a rift that could cost more lives. All hope hinges on surviving these new threats and making their way home. Will Merlin find his true love on the other side of time? And if he does, will he be able to bring her back to Prydain? Together, can they unlock the magic that has imprisoned King Arthur in death all these years? 

Angela R. Hughes creates a masterful ride of twists and turns, taking you to the edge of your seat in her follow-up to Elanor and the Song of the Bard, in Book 2 of The Once and Future Chronicles: Merlin and the Magic of Time.
