Merlin’s Magical Comeback!

Imagine a world teetering on the edge of darkness, it's only hope locked away in a dusty Oxford classroom. That's right, Professor Limren is none other than Merlin—the most legendary wizard ever.

The World is Full of Magicals!

So many beings possess magical powers in the world. Some want to protect the world, while others want to control it. Join Merlin on his journey as he comes across the most mystifying creatures, including his encounters with the Order of Rhamnusia…
