Synopsis: One and a half thousand years, and life is as complicated as ever.
Merlin, the legendary King Arthur’s mysterious magician, is immortal. As Arthur lay dying he promised to return. Merlin is holding him to his word. Forever young, forever waiting, Merlin lives an unassuming life in the city, keeping his identity and abilities secret from his friends. It's a long and lonely road, but Merlin is a patient man.
It's now the 21st century and when the earth begins to groan with earthquakes, Merlin knows the situation is anything but natural. An eruption is imminent, but something—or someone—is forcing this volcano to erupt. Merlin must use his concealed talents and practiced charisma to save a town of innocent people before disaster strikes. He has the power to thwart a catastrophe—if time doesn’t run out first.
Review: IGNITION is a story of Merlin set in the 21st century. Merlin’s a professor and goes by Merry now, for the time being. Merry is lonely and waiting for Arthur’s promised return. In the meantime there is a threat to the natural world which Merry cannot ignore. There is trouble up on Mt. Linnigan and Merry will need to use all his ability manipulating lauvan to attempt saving the world. IGNITION is definitely a great addition to the myriad stories of Merlin. The characters were great and I was quickly drawn into the story. I thought IGNITION was well-written and I look forward to seeing what the author has in store for Merlin next. I liked how different IGNITION is from so many of the Merlin stories out there and how it gives the readers a unique take on his life without Arthur.
