The hill below the fortress of Taurovinda, stronghold of Urtha, High King of the Cornovidi, is coming alive: the Otherworldly realm of the Shadows of Heroes are claiming the land as their own. But this time their actions are driven by a force that is darker and older than even the oldest among the ghosts. Who or what is raising the Dead? Merlin, a temporary resident in the fortress, must answer that question if this time of kings and lovers is to be saved. Jason's wonderful ship, Argo, has returned, drawn back by her own guilty past, and a dreadful secret that she will reveal only to Merlin. Argo holds the key to the mystery. And Niiv, the bewitching, beautiful Northlands enchantress, is working her way even closer into Merlin's charms. This is a journey that will take Merlin back in history, and to a fabled island of legend. Love is in the air. But at a price. In this third volume of the Merlin Codex, Robert Holdstock weaves myth and history into a fabulous tale of honour, vengeance and magic. At its centre, moving along his never-ending path, is Merlin himself, an enchanter in the prime of his life, feckless, curious, powerful, yet a stranger to his own past - and a man about find a true and honourable use for his talents.… (mais)

The third book of the Merlin Codex concludes the story of Medea, Jason and her sons but suffers the same problems as volume 2 - Urtha's land is under threat again but he is given very little to do and is something of a non-entity. The growing animosity between him and his own son never really goes anywhere and the plot rambles.

Only the first volume of this series shows Holdstock at his best. ( )

A bit of a disappointing ending to an otherwise solid trilogy. Without spoilers I can't say too much, but if it were a storyless journey, it would be all right, but the various story threads gradually fizzle away until you're left wondering what was the point of the details?
The other issue I had may be a perceptual one, but the emotional engagement with the protagonist (surely one of the more important reasons for running with a first-person account?) was, until the final few dozen pages, absolutely non-existent.
The story as a whole cannot finish, due to who Merlin is and what he will become, but I did expect some sort of dramatic denouement that would grip; me. It did not, I am afraid to say, which is very disappointing, because the first book in the trilogy was so good. ( )
