H. B. Bolton about this book: Since childhood I've enjoyed hearing tales about Arthurian Legends: the Knights of the Round Table, the sorcerer Merlin, the sword Excalibur, the gallant King Arthur, the forbidden romance between Queen Guinevere and Lancelot, and honestly the list could go on for miles. According to legend, Merlin fell in love with the Lady of the Lake and trained her in magic. Although his power of foresight showed him that she would one day betray him, he ignored the premonitions and continued to teach her. In time, she locked him either under a rock, in a tree or inside a glass castle. For purposes in The Dragon's Egg, I decided to have her place him inside a glass castle, where he sleeps in an enchanted slumber. I also liked how BBC's show Merlin connected him to being a dragonlord.
It seemed the perfect fit for my story, but I still needed to add a twist. Merlin became the protector of the Dragon's Egg, which helped him control the ruthless dragon Thrakon. That was until the Lady stole the Egg, thus rendering the wizard powerless against the vengeful dragon. As it turned out, Merlin was also a member of the Band of Unlikely Heroes. Of course, this legendary group of warriors can be found only in the Relics of Mysticus series.
