Eldon Blaise, magician and misfit, has arrived at Gwaed Lyn to turn Rosa's life upside down. Not only is he claiming to be the lost son of Eli Vane and his human wife Deryn, Rosa's ancestor, but that he also used to be none other than Merlin Wylt, the magician of legend who fought by King Arthur's side. The curse the Autumn Queen has placed over the Aos Si is breaking, but she isn't prepared to go down without a fight, and releases the one person that brought the great Merlin to his knees...Nimue. Her spirit broken from a lifetime imprisoned by the Autumn Queen, Nimue must convince the Vanes to trust her. She wants to be free of the Queen forever, but winning over Merlin is going to be no easy task. She broke his heart, and being together again will bring back a life of pain and passion that neither of them can fight. To defeat the Autumn Queen and protect Gwaed Lyn, Merlin will have to stop running and become the powerful man he used to be...that includes having the fearless and formidable Nimue by his side.
