  1. Summary

    Merlin is a recent graduate with a double doctorate in metaphysics and physics. Arthur is a low-level paper pusher with a desk in the sub-basement of MI5. They live in a world with ridiculous laws and restrictions against anyone who might be supernatural in any way, shape, or design.

    Merlin has huge debts looming over this head, a few quid left in his bank account, and no job prospects. Arthur is pushing thirty, in a dead-end job with no chances of promotion to fieldwork agent, and is thoroughly bored with his life.

    One ill-advised Craigslist advert, five pushy mates, one nosy all-knowing sister, and a hacked email account later, Merlin and Arthur take the world by storm.

    (Or, more precisely, they take over the world.)

  3. Summary

    If Into the Badlands met The Once and Future King, this is the story that would be told:

    Merlin has three strikes against him: he's one of the last surviving members of the grove of Ironwood, he's renowned as the dread sorcerer Emrys, and there's a large reward hanging over his head like Damocles' sword. After decades of running, there's nowhere left to go. His dream of peace -- Ironwood's dream -- seems impossible to achieve until he meets the young son of a thane whose greatest secret is a traitorous desire for more than the tyranny that runs rampant throughout the Kingdoms of Albion.

    It was disaster that brought the world to this. It's war that will cleanse it of its sins. But it is prophecy that heralds the day when the guardian of the realm can wear his mantle once again, and when the King of Kings will rise to take the throne that is rightly his.

    Summary

    Arthur has always loved Merlin, the kindly old court physician. As he grows and begins to leave childhood behind, his feelings mature with him and it doesn’t take him long to realize that Merlin is changing too, affected by a spell that puts the two of them on a collision course with fate itself.

    Summary

    He shivered and the iron chains holding him to the pole, holding his magic inside, rattled without budging. Publicly, his crime was simple: he had magic and he had used it in the presence of the king and prince.

    Summary

    There's a man sitting in Arthur's spot at the bar, talking to Lance. He's gorgeous, and just about everything Arthur finds attractive in a man. But when he turns around, Arthur's more than surprised at what he finds.
