Born on Christmas Eve, Arthur Pendragon is the illegitimate son of the married duchess Ygraine and Uther Pendragon, brother of a great king: a union Merlin arranged. But Arthur's birth is not welcomed by everyone: his father demands he be hidden until a legitimate son can be born, and Merlin is forced to give the babe to his own childhood nurse for safekeeping and go into hiding. In a dream, Merlin learns of a sword of unparalleled beauty and extraordinary craftsmanship, hidden in a long-deserted Roman temple. Merlin retrieves the sword and hides it in a cave on an island in the centre of a lake, where it remains for years. But what is hidden must be revealed. For it is foretold that the irrepressible young man named Arthur will find a sword and claim his birthright: as heir to Uther Pendragon and king of the Britons.

As legend has it, the Hollow Hills are the hidden abode of the gods -- they withdrew to them when people began to no longer believe in the gods. Within these Hills the gods still live, delighting in the joys of companionship and riches of song and story. And sometimes the song of the Lordly Ones can still be heard by travelers on the road. Some people even enter the faery halls and learn new songs and stories to reenchant the world. In this book, a sequel to the popular From Isles of Dream, John Matthews has collected the best imaginative writings by contemporary Celtic writers. Included are tales and songs by such as Robin Williamson, R.J. Stewart, Rosemary Sutcliffe, Caitlin Matthews, David Spangler, and Margaret Elphinstone. This is a unique collection that will become a perennial favorite of all lovers of fantasy, imagination, and Celtic lore.

Tim Ryan can't shake the feeling that he is different from other teens, and not in a good way. For one thing, he seems to have his own personal poltergeist that causes fires and sets him up to be arrested for shoplifting. As a result Tim has been sent to live on a rundown farm on a remote island off the coast of Australia with his crazy grandmother, a woman who seems to talk to the local spirits, and who refuses to cushion Tim from facing his difficulties. To make matters worse, Tim is expected to milk cows, chase sheep, and hunt fish with a spear. But he's been exiled to an island alive with ancient magic—land magic that Tim can feel in his bones, and sea magic that runs in his blood. If Tim can face down the danger from drug‑runners, sea storms, and the deadly threat of a seal woman who wishes to steal him away for a lingering death in the land of Faery, he may be able to claim the mysterious changeling heritage that is his birthright, and take hold of a legacy of power beyond any he has ever imagined.
