Merlin gone corrupt. Taliesin is the hero. Mordred narrates the story of his young life growing up in Brittany under the tutelage of magical Merlin. They must defeat Morgana before she can ascend from out of the earth and make everyone in Britain into slaves. The kids agree to the mission and despite the bullies occasionally causing trouble, eventually they band together to fight Morgana and her minions.
The film makes use of Arthurian locations by having the children travel to Stonehenge, Tintagel, and Glastonbury Tor. Unfortunately, none of these locations are used well in the film—we get no really good cinematography of them that makes them feel magical or inspiring.
The most powerful moment in the film comes when Alex learns his father was just a drunk and not at all a descendant of Arthur. Merlin, who usually appears as a goofy young wizard, now appears as an adult. The kids now get to Glastonbury Tor where they discover a secret passage into the cave where Morgana dwells.
This was the worst part of the film in my opinion—Morgana is twisted up in a bunch of tree roots in the cave and she has power over trees, causing roots to come up from the ground and grab the children at times. These rootlike connections also flow over into her serpent depictions—she flies about like a flying snake or gargoyle and later as a dragon. Overall, her depiction is insulting to the character and also misogynistic. There is a long history of women being associated with serpents as a symbol of them being evil which goes back to the Eve and the Serpent and depictions of Lilith and the medieval fairy Melusine.
I hate when Morgana is simply depicted as a villain—her character is more complicated in the legends, yet the film makes no effort to develop her and she barely even gets any lines. It was anticlimactic and I was ready to go home and forget the movie, but then Merlin shows up once the kids return home to say Morgana was only wounded and will attack during the eclipse. The kids even end up wearing armor which looks ridiculous since they have shoulder pads but their chests and stomachs are exposed.
Of course, good triumphs over evil, and ho hum, after a big battle scene that fails to be inspiring or creative, life goes back to normal. The film does end with a positive message. He then gives Alex a copy of the book his father gave him, only now the cover has changed to show Alex and his friends depicted on it. Patrick Stewart as Merlin — this tender moment at the end of the film felt unwarranted — I guess Alex sees Merlin as a replacement for his lost father.
As I said, the film is well-intentioned, but it lacks true creativity or inspiration. How many films with skeleton armies do we need? If Morgana wanted to conquer the world, why would she go after a boy with a sword and attack a school? Any villain with half a brain would have headed for Parliament instead. None of the Arthurian landmarks are used to any real purpose. Even the soundtrack is dull—music is essential for a film to make us feel emotion, but I was left not feeling anything. The most magical moment in the whole film might be when Alex explains to his mom that the Arthurian legend is real and to prove it, he fills the bathtub with water, then asks the Lady of the Lake to bring him the sword and her hand pops up with it.
This was a bit different, and manages not to be cheesy. I do give the film points for its sincerity—it never tries to make a mockery of the legend but tries to repurpose it for a new generation. Overall, I would give the film a C-. There are a few worse Arthurian films like King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Merlin and the War of the Dragons , but there are also many that are better, Knights of the Round Table , Camelot , and Excalibur lead the list; heck, even Quest for Camelot and Prince Valiant with Robert Wagner in a ridiculous wig are more fun to watch.
It also begins in the twenty-first century. We are introduced to sixteen-year-old Mila Roth and her ten-year-old sister, Lilly. They live in Wales in a house called Avalon Cottage, which is rumored to be haunted. So yes, we have another novel with King Arthur having daughters. What is interesting from here on is that Morgana is the mother of two girls. As the novel progresses, there is no indication that Morgana is the mother of Mordred, as is more typical in Arthurian fiction.

Here I should point out that this novel was written after Hosie wrote her The Return to Camelot Trilogy, which I have not read, but which seems to be a prelude to this novel. In order to save Lilly, it is necessary for the Roth family why did Hosie choose that name? Here I think is the only real fault of the novel.
Hosie has her characters travel back in time one thousand years—this date is preposterous to me because it would suggest they go back to the year A. They arrive in the kingdom of Logres at Glastonbury and then travel to Camelot. This year is about years too late. No one in medieval Britain would have had that name. Some of the other name choices are equally odd. In any case, the family arrives back in medieval Logres.
The plot now revolves around Merlin trying to heal Lilly while the family reside at Camelot—ruled by Guinevere, who is in love with Lancelot. It turns out that Mila must do battle with Nimue in order to save Lilly—this also relates back to themes in the earlier novels—apparently Nimue had some sort of romantic crush on Arthur that caused trouble.
In the end, Mila succeeds and Lilly is healed, and then everyone returns to the twenty-first century, but Rustin is unhappy and decides to figure out how to return to Camelot. One final point of interest in terms of treatments of King Arthur and his children should be mentioned here. Mordred is dead at the time of the novel. The novel closes with Melehan traveling to the twenty-first century to meet Mila and tell her he has much to tell her about Rustin and the others back in Camelot, leaving the ending open for a sequel. I especially enjoyed the realistic depiction of Mila and her teenage friends in Wales.
The build-up of Mila learning the truth about her family and background were all well-done. Those who are diehard fans of historical fiction and a more traditional Arthurian storyline will find it less appealing. Tyler Tichelaar, Ph. Meleon had never thought it would come to this. He knew he and his brother, Prince Morgant, were far from the great knights that their grandfather, King Arthur, or even their father, Prince Mordred, had been, so if those two great men had not succeeded in defeating the usurper Constantine, how could he and Morgant?
Yet, Meleon had hoped the good Lord above would aid them in their battle. But it had been a slaughter, a hopeless slaughter. But what could they do against a tyrant who was aided by a witch? Meleon hated to turn and run, but he knew his brother was right. His father and grandfather would not have thought it cowardly if he sought to save his own life. Then perhaps he could make it safely to Lesser Britain, to their distant cousins there, to raise a new army, to seek out Merlin, the great wizard who had disappeared from Britain years before, but who might be the only one alive now who could fight against the witch.
Meleon, however, had never even met Merlin, only heard tales of him, so how could he know whether the wizard were still alive? But sightings of him had been rumored over the years, and what other hope was there? No time to think of Merlin now.

But once his men reached the forest, the enemy failed to pursue them farther, and Meleon and Morgant led their loyal handful of followers into the woods. They were hardly worth pursuing now. Doubtless, Constantine and his men would find them if he wanted their lives, and they were bleeding so profusely from their many wounds that they could not run far. Still, they managed to make their way through the forest as the sky darkened, and after a couple of miles, as night finally fell, they emerged into a clearing where stood a small monastery, one Meleon knew well—it was where the great Sir Bedwyr had retreated after the fatal Battle of Camlann where Arthur and Mordred had been slain.
All the trouble that has come upon Britain is my fault. I am not wise, nor good, but I can hold off causing more pain and bloodshed. Never had there ever been a braver man in all the history of Britain than Sir Bedwyr, so how could he desert them now? But Bedwyr would have none of it. He need not have wondered, however, for the monks had been watching for their return, and without surprise at their greatly reduced numbers, the holy brothers quickly rushed outdoors to help them inside to treat their wounds.
Bedwyr greeted the princes, separating them from their men and telling them to come with him into the chapel. And then he turned and walked to the chapel, and the princes, too exhausted to argue, decided it was best to follow and get the praying over with so Bedwyr might find them a meal and aid them in further escape. We must find a boat and sail to Rheged so I can warn her of what has happened. He journeyed all night and was exhausted; he is resting inside the monastery, waiting to give you the news, but for now, it is enough to tell you that Princess Rachel gave birth two days ago to your son, whom she named Arthur after your grandfather, and this morning, she embarked with the child and several knights of her father, King Accolon, for Lesser Britain to find safety there, for Constantine has sent another army against Rheged.
The messenger barely escaped them as they marched toward the castle just an hour after Princess Rachel and the child made their escape. Bedwyr bid the princes follow him to the altar in the small chapel, and there the three knelt and spoke silently to God of what troubled their hearts. But their prayers were not to be finished. Not three minutes after they knelt, the chapel door was flung open and in strode Constantine with half-a-dozen of his armed men and the Witch Queen following him. One of them, having not a shred of honor, struck Meleon a blow in the back, which did not pierce his armor but sent the prince to the floor.
Stepping up to Bedwyr, she laughed in his face. To such humility I have driven the strongest man in Britain. You are just like every other man since the time of Adam himself. Weak, foolish, a coward, afraid of women, afraid of my power, afraid of your very self. Meleon could not believe the agonizing sting of the metal as it severed his flesh. He struggled for breath, his body going into panic mode.
First I must know where the rings are! He knew which rings she meant—the royal rings of Avalon, the rings his grandfather and grandmother had always worn. But one day it shall be yours, and you shall pass it to all the Kings of Britain who shall come after you. Neither his grandfather nor grandmother ever would have taken those rings from their fingers, so if…as Sir Bedwyr had told him…Morgana had…had taken…. Meleon could barely think…hated that he was dying…would never again…see Rachel or his son….
But if Morgana had taken…King Arthur to Avalon…the rings were there…and safe until his son…. You can visit Tyler at www. The series finale offered few surprises in my opinion, but that is because we have heard the tale of King Arthur so many times before, and despite the original elements of the series, which often seriously diverged from the legend, I doubt any viewer who knows the Arthurian legend would have been content with any other ending than Arthur sailing off to Avalon.
For me, this series had a serious amount of content that needed resolving in this final episode.
