Read Legacy: Arthurian Saga 1-4 Storyline:

The Crystal CaveWHO WAS MERLIN? Was the famed magician of Camelot and King Arthur's court really a sinister, all-powerful being from another world? Was he truly a Prince of Darkness? Or was he a man with the passions of other mortals? A man with unique intelligence and unusual gifts? Why was he so feared? How did he come by his occult powers? Why was the crystal cave so important to him? Mary Stewart's novel brings to vibrant life one of the world's great legends and sheds a fascinating new light on the turbulence and mystery of 5th-century Britain. In this enthralling work, Mary Stewart once more shows her own great wizardry. Again she reveals those qualities of suspense and romantic adventure which have made her one of the world's most widely read novelists.The Hollow HillsThe spellbinding, suspenseful story of how Merlin, the Enchanter, helped Arthur become king of all Britain--a magnificent novel set in a time when no life is safe, no law stable. The prophetic voice of Merlin communicates not only the bristling atmosphere of the story's ancient setting but also its profound relevance to our own time. Once again, as she did in her bestselling THE CRYSTAL CAVE, Mary Stewart provides a glowing re-creation of pre-Camelot England.The Last EnchantmentArthur is King! But while he is unchallenged on the battlfield, sinister powers plot to destroy him in his own Camelot. When the rose-gold witch Morgause, Arthur's half-sister, ensnares him into an incestuous liaison -- and bears his son, Mordred, to use to her own evil ends -- a fatal web of love, betrayal and vengeance begins.... Seen through the eyes of Arthur's prophetic protector, Merlin -- whose own mysterious powers are in dire danger -- here is a tale rich with the majesty and turbulence of the magnificent legend it tells....resplendent with Mary Stewart's own special magic.The Wicked DayYoung Mordred was born of an incestuous relationship between King arthur and his half sister, that evil sorceress, the witch queen Morgause. He was reared in secrecy by fisher folk who knew little of the truth. When events called Mordred to Camelot, he learned of his true parentage. He also became King Arthur's most trusted counselor, setting in motion the Fates and leading to the "wicked day of destiny."
