Prince Taliesin falls in love with and marries Princess Charis of the lost city of Atlantis, and their son, Merlin, grows up to be a powerful wizard

Zondervan House
An enchanting tale of love and loss, glory and grandeur, set in the twilight of Rome's power -- where the Celtic chieftains of Britain battle to save their land from an onrushing darkness. In this modern classic, Stephen Lawhead presents a majestic retelling of western literature's most compelling epic. A Druid Prince -- Singer at the Dawn of the Age. His song would kindle a vision that would burn forever. Taliesin, oracle of melody. His singing bore the haunting beauty of another world . . . and the spark of a kingdom yet to come. Charis, Lady of the Lake -- Driven by the cataclysm that destroyed her home -- the scented groves of the Isle of Apples, the coliseums of the bull dancers of Atlantis -- she encountered an uncertain future in a barbarous land . . . and the bard who would capture her untamed heart. Their love would bridge two worlds. And like golden threads, their lives would knit the fabric of a timeless legend; that of Merlin the prophet . . . and Arthur the king.
The legends of King Arthur come alive with a Christian world-view in these masterfully told adventures. These new editions contain new maps and other new material.

Reading this was like wandering through an ancient forest of Britain...tall, gnarled trees, drooping curtains of moss, and banks of mystical fog lying across the borders of unknown lands. In other words, a terrific read. It maintains the tone and qualities of the legends.
