I started the present volume in the belief that it came before Merlin s Godson because the copyright date of this was 1974 and the latter was published in 1976 It soon transpired that this was a seuel and on investigation Merlin s Godson was a compilation of two earlier stories in the series Presumably it was reprinted to make those available again as they had been published around the 1940s or so So I put this aside to read that one first though it was unfortunate that the first part of this is a big spoiler for the events of The Ship from Atlantis which forms part two of Merlin s GodsonAlthough this seuel was written in the 1970s the author s old school style is preserved including the unfortunate tendency to constantly head hop and comment on things that the characters themselves do not know especially as the action of this story occurs over several centuries I found the style very dry and wasn t sure I would finish it but I finally didThe story follows on from The Ship from Atlantis Gwalcmai son of the ex Roman legionnaire who became king in the pre Columbian New World and the local woman he married has been trapped in a glacier for about two centuries During that time his love Corenice the Atlantean woman who has the knack of sending her spirit into other living things has been hanging around as various creatures hoping that a human being would arrive just in time to prevent him being lost as the glacier melts and bits drop off into the sea She manages to possess a Viking girl Thyra so the girl s father and rather unpleasant betrothed plus the much nicer Irish slave do come to his rescue and they live for a while with a pacifist community nearby but soon the psychopathic betrothed is plotting to do away with the other men to possess Thyra himselfEventually Gwalchmai ThyraCorenice and the slave who loves Thyra set out on Gwalchmai s long interrupted mission to Rome in The Ship from Atlantis he set off to bring word of the Americas to the Emperor of Rome and offer the New World as a refuge for the people of Rome beset by the barbarians but it is soon interrupted when he receives a communication from the ring he wears which is an heirloom from his godfather Merlin This tells him to go off to a spae wife someone who sees visions and he will be told what to do And so commences the long winded and torturous journey performing one uest after another and sometimes spending a century or two in suspended animation while Corenice has to inhabit other bodies and hang around Various supernatural beings are encountered along the way including fairies the god Thor Corenice s sea goddess and a dark and hostile being which was mentioned in the earlier volume as having descended from another planetEverything bar the kitchen sink is thrown in including the court of the Mongol Khan medieval Japan and why should being knocked on the head cause Gwalchmai to lose a whole lifetime with the reincarnated Corenice King Arthur where I found it hard to believe that Merlin had created an elaborate mausoleum complete with magical paintings in the time that Arthur s followers were hanging around at the bottom of the hill in The King of the World s Edge part one of Merlin s Godson and Joan of Arc view spoilerIt transpires that Gwalchmai and Corenice while she inhabited a body with no spirit of its own had a son who was born after Gwalchmai went off on his ill conceived journey to Rome and they are therefore the ancestors of Joan hide spoiler

Warner Munn ï 5 Read & Download The apex of his art a synthesis of myth and history imagination and reality to show the heroic ualities by which the human spirit endures Don Herron in Survey of Modern Fantasy LiteratureThe story of Merlin's Ring is a colossal achievement of sheer imagination From the moment the wandering spirit of the sorceress from Atlantis occupies the body of a Viking maid and liberates Gwalchmai from his frozen tomb within an iceberg wherein he has lain in suspended animation for centuries the tale expands to include shamans and witches and magical and supernatural forces The. Merlin s Ring 1974 by H Warner Munn is among the last fantasies of the pre Tolkien style Drawing from the Western and Arthurian corpus the story is of Merlin s Godson Gwalchmai and his beloved Atlantean warrior maiden Corenice The mission is simple reach the Emperor of the Roman Empire to add a faraway land to his kingdom The problem Rome fell five hundred years agoI found this a book that one must intend to read It s not like an exciting modern novel that whisks you away Instead one must walk in and accept the author s story style and pacing The story itself would be considered bad by many modern measures as Munn stomps on many modern taboos In some ways he shows you why the taboos are taboo but in other ways he shows that the taboos are nonsense Much of his success depends on how well he told any particular piece of the story with the unevenness being the determinant on whether it worked or notThe story is broad as an historical epic is broad taking place over centuries giving the reader a witness to historical times Munn does his work because history matters here not the fantasy history that we ve grown used to but history informed by scholarship While I can t say that the history is perfect he takes it as close as the scholarship of the time can bring himThe tale itself consists of many arcs arcros many times giving it the feel of multiple novellas rather than one large novelI felt uite charmed with the relationship between Gwalchmail and Corenice They do not have intercourse before marriage and then strive to keep faithful to each other despite the arc of time moving between them He is extremely long lived due to magic and she flits between bodies sometimes in control and sometimes not What catches me most is the earnestness of this faithfulness that neither is trying to wiggle out or create moral escape clauses When they said faithful they meant faithfulI found the ending rather lackluster How does one end a book uite like this That s always a problem Good ending are hard and hard for this book because Munn never uite got the book leading up to something specific The end comes because in the end there must be an endI recommend this book because it reads so differently than a modern fantasy It represents a path that fantasy once followed a path that s been forgotten but for a handful of old books The hero is no hyper macho The heroine is not hyper competent Both are uite earnest without cynicism or witty banter They are who they are
