Overview

The belief that Merlin the Magician lived backwards through time is one of the most fascinating theories in Arthurian Legend. In this modern-day fantasy for fans of the King Arthur Legend, evil sorceress Morgan LeFay leaps through time to Merlin's youth, intent on destroying the wizard before he becomes the legendary mentor of kings. However, she is not prepared for what awaits her -- a seemingly strange and magical land filled with horseless carriages and flameless lights. Undaunted, Morgan sets out to expel Merlin from history and to destroy Merlin's student, a very special young hero.
Living on Vancouver Island, 12-year-old Michael Halsey is protected from an evil sorceress by his eccentric 6th grade science teacher, Mr. Merlin. Beautiful but deadly Morgan Le Fay pursues Michael into the coastal rainforest of Strathcona Provincial Park where he meets the Lady of the Lake. In a final battle of wits, wills and magic, Merlin sacrifices his future to preserve the past.

A wonderful story and take on the Arthurian legend. Highly recommended. Some small punctuation errors, which brought my rating to a 4 instead of a 5.
