    Summary

    King Arthur sets out to keep his promise to the spirit of the Druid boy by repealing his father's ban on magic. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done, for reasons including but not limited to the following:

    (1) He can't change the law until he understands magic better, but no sorcerer is willing to explain magic to him until he changes the law;

    (2) The sorcerers all have some strange obsession with Merlin, which is awakening all sorts of feelings in Arthur that he really doesn't fancy examining too closely;

    (3) He is starting to feel like the butt of some Druid-population-wide inside joke involving the mysterious phenomenon called Emrys; and

    (4) Oh yeah, Morgana is still trying to kill him.

    Thus he embarks on a journey of discovery, diplomacy, accountability, and self-improvement, and maybe even falls in love along the way.

    Summary

    It’s the year 2020. The world is in lockdown, and Arthur is unable to work as a sports commentator while there is no sport being played. What’s worse, in the recent acrimonious divorce from Sophia, he lost his flat in Mayfair, his Porsche and a large part of his dignity. But on the plus side, he gained Sophia’s labrador puppy, Cavall. As he comes to terms with his reduced social status, whiling away the days of the pandemic in a rented cottage in the country, he begins to realise that maybe he has got the better end of the deal. Especially when his destiny collides with that of his neighbour, a furloughed pharmacist with shaggy hair and an equally shaggy dog of his own.
