"Pursued by dreams, the boy fled..."
In flight from the visions that haunt him, young Merlin plunges back into the deep forest. There he falls into the hands of the Wodewose -- wild folk who, according to legend, live in the company of serpents and wolves. But the wodewose aren't what they seem -- and neither is young Merlin. He is destined to become a great wizard -- if he isn't killed first. With the help of a future king, he must escape the forest...and meet his destiny.
