A four-thousand-year-old prophecy warned that when mankind had made certain advances over nature, it would face an unstoppable tide of evil unless certain bizarre events came to pass.
Jake King, an American forestry consultant, chanced upon a medieval shield while tracing his English ancestry. The shield began to glow, drawing him into a glen where an ancient thornbush unfurled a bedraggled Merlin, magicked there fifteen hundred years ago.
Merlin hailed the bewildered Jake as the prophesized reincarnation of King Arthur. Before he can gather his wits, Jake finds himself thrust into a series of unbelievable Arthurian adventures, confronting a man-eating giant, a fire-breathing dragon, marriage, and the devil himself.
In parallel, Merlin is thrust into his unbelievable images of twenty-first-century England (cars, TV, telephones, etc). But the combination of his rusty magic and seventeenth-century English caused mayhem everywhere he trod, and nearly everybody he met was left teetering on the edge of insanity. Accordingly, his innocent quest to save the world elected him to Public Enemy Number 1.
Could Arthur and Merlin fulfill the conditions of the prophecy and save both worlds?
