‘When is the life of a hero sworn to protect his people deemed as less than the survival of his mentor?’
In ancient times King Arthur made a sacred vow on his enchanted sword to return at the time of his people’s greatest need. This worked very well through the centuries until the spirit of his erstwhile mentor, Merlin, becomes trapped in a computer data base.
Avalon of the future is an undersea city housing the last remnants of free people, but it is failing. Technology and raw products to make the repairs no longer exists in a world over run by mutant overlords on the surface. Merlin needs a body to escape, but he has to acquire one capable of containing his power. Arthur’s will do nicely if he can generate a successful eugenics program with what is left of humanity to trap the king’s spirit into regeneration.
Who will win the power struggle? The enchanter hell bent on his own escape, or the hero committed for all eternity to serve his people? Yanked out of time, in a body where he has no memories of his past life, Arthur doesn’t stand a chance. Or does he?
