Celtika by Robert HoldstoCenturies before he meets Arthur Merlin wanders the Earth eternally young a traveler on the path of magic and learning During his journeys he encounters Jason and joins in his search for the Golden FleeceHundred of years later Merlin hears of a screaming ship. Celtika held so much promise It is an ambitious startlingly original work Unfortunately it is partly undone by a convoluted plot and certain confusing creative choices Holdstock has built an intriguing world that mixes Arthurian and Greek legend with shamanism the characters found or likely to be found in those stories and a plot that concerns the invasion of Greece by Brennus and the search for Jason's sons hidden in time yes not in space but in time by his devious wife MedeaCertain scenes in this book are stunningly evocative in true Holdstock fashion and every time I came across one I was reminded of what this story could have been had it been cohesive and less prone to meandering off into confusing situations and long somewhat repetitive stretches of internal narration by Merlin The choice to make an area of woodland in Britain the Land of the Dead was jarringly out of context with the sense of visceral Iron Age reality brought to the rest of ancient Europe Giving it the name Ghostland didn't help Its presence was too literal and pulled me out of the story and since it is a central location in the plot I couldn't ignore itIn the second half of the novel the story leaves Ghostland and heads for the Mediterranean world and the narrative picks up considerably yet is still weakened at the very end by another confusing development I felt disappointed that a book that started off so compelling and fresh for the fantasy genre could not have been consistent throughout in maintaining those ualities
