"The soul of man is immortal and imperishable" - Plato
When Merlin first arrives in Camelot, he is certain of the destiny that awaits him: Clearing the throne of the Pendragon dynasty to make way for the Once and Future King. Working with Nimueh and a rebel band of druids, he is sent to infiltrate Camelot, working from the inside to overthrow those that will challenge the rise of Albion. He didn’t count on becoming the manservant of the crown prince—or, worst of all, liking him—and, slowly, Merlin begins to wonder if the king he has been searching for is a lot closer than anyone believed.
