The second volume of Holdstock's Merlin Codex saga returns Merlin to Alba, the future England. The hill has been seized, however, by warriors supernatural in origin and habits, and must be liberated.

In the sequel to Celtika, the enchanter Merlin returns to Alba-only to be confronted by three dire by Urtha. Holdstock's strength lies not so much in his storytelling (I could not feel the gravity of what was at stake) but rather the haunting, at times hypnotic, reimagining of Druidic magic/lore ("the Speakers for the Past, for Kings and for the Land" p. 186) and Celtic warrior spirit. Merlin's real motivations remain vague: he summons the dead's assistance; elsewhere he is yet again seduced by his former companion/lover, the ageless enchantress Medea; or wears the forest as a cloak, etc.
These three warnings greet Merlin on his return to Alba, the future England, to the deserted fortress of Taurovinda--the Hill of the White Bull.
At the heart of Ryhope Wood, Steven and the mythago Guiwenneth live in the ruins of a Roman villa close to a haunted fortress from the Iron Age, from which Guiwenneth's myth arose. She is comfortable here, almost tied to the place, and Steven has long since abandoned all thought of returning to his own world. Jason and the Argonauts are aboard her, enchanted into sleep. These three warnings greet Merlin on his return to Alba, the future England, to the deserted fortress of Taurovinda--the Hill of the White Bull.

After long travels, Merlin has returned to Alba, the future England. Likewise, Urtha, High King of the Cornovidi, is coming home as well. But Urtha's stronghold has been taken by warriors from Ghostland.

In this sequel to Celtika, myth and history weave together into a tale of honor, death, and magic. At the core of the story is Merlin himself, the enchanter in the prime of his life, reckless, curious, powerful, yet a stranger to his own past-a past that is catching up with him.
