To lose a manservant once may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose him twice looks like carelessness. When Merlin vanishes in the mines of Kemeray, Arthur’s search for him uncovers decades of secrets and betrayals. But the sudden appearance of a baby white dragon bodes well for Albion, for Merlin and Arthur, and for the land that they will build together.

Oh my goodness! Love Arthur in this! Just to see him grow and deal with the truths that are revealed when Merlin’s prolonged kidnapping at the hands of Morgana might mean his death. Brilliant. And a baby dragon!
