HUNTING WITH GODS -- MERLIN' S DESTINY IS FULFILLED Disappointed after meeting his father in Constantinople, Merlin returns home to find Britain is engaged in a bloodthirsty war against the Saxons. Spared by the king of the Britons, he begins to train other healers across the land. But the king' s untimely death puts Merlin under the grip of Uther Pendragon, an evil war leader. Uther orders Merlin to use his magical powers to help him seduce the young wife of King Gorlois. The healer is horrified by the High King' s demands but realizes that many others will suffer at Uther' s hands if he disobeys. Can Merlin survive Uther' s madness and enable good to overcome evil? In Hunting with Gods, Merlin' s morality is challenged as never before. M. K. Hume has won the praise of readers and critics alike with her original take on the Merlin legend. Her background in Arthurian literature provides historical accuracy to a beautifully written trilogy wrought with passion, heart, and adventure.
