Limitations are for people who have them, and excuses are for people who need them.


Contrary to what many believe, Merlin wasn’t a man. It was a title. Merlins were the advisors of the ancient kings. The Penmerlin was the High Merlin who sat at the right hand of the reigning monarch while the others were referred to as waremerlins.

The best known of the Merlins was Emrys who served both Uther and Arthur Pendragon, but Emrys Penmerlin was a man with well known weaknesses. Weaknesses that Morgen exploited so that she could not only defeat Arthur, but end the line of the merlins as well.

What she never counted on was the backlash her actions would have with the other waremerlins who refused to see her take possession of the sacred objects they were charged with protecting. More than that, with the capture of Emrys Penmerlin, the waremerlin Aquila came into her full powers. Now Aquila Penmerlin guards the isle of Avalon with the remnants of Arthur’s knights. She is surrounded by men and women whose loyalty is above reproach (at least most of the time).

More powerful than her predecessor, she guides the Lords of Avalon in their quests and waits for a time when she and Morgen can battle for supremacy. However, her time, like that of all Penmerlins is limited. If she doesn’t complete her goal before much longer, she will have to step down and bequeath her powers to the next in line…

The only problem is no one is sure who the next Penmerlin will be. He or she could be born of goodness… or the next merlin could be born of evil. It is up to Dame Fortuna who is chosen and Dame has a most bizarre sense of humor…
