From Publishers Weekly

In this sequel to the exciting fantasy, Winter of Magic's Return, Service begins her story two years after Heather, Wellington and the strange boy Earlreally the wizard Merlin, preserved through the centuries and returned as a youthhave conjured King Arthur and his army from Avalon. Britain is becoming united once more, and when Merlin negotiates an uneasy truce between warlike Queen Margaret of Scotland and Arthur, all of Britain looks toward the south, where Morgan the enchantress is raising her army. Merlin's Old Magic is not working, but he sees a glimmer of a new and better Magic in Heather's empathy with animals. Although her talent and the New Magic are elusive, Heather ultimately provides Merlin with the means to save Arthur and the world. Although not quite as exhilarating as the first bookwith its almost giddy sense of discovery for the readerthis book will satisfy fans of the three protagonists. Ages 10-13.

From School Library Journal

Grade 6 Up This continuation of Winter of Magic's Return (Atheneum, 1985) does what a good sequel shouldit continues and enhances the original story without rehashing the events of the first book. It also does it in a way that makes this book stand alone; it is not necessary to have read the first. Heather and Welly, children of a future England recovering from a holocaust and nuclear winter, are now teamed up with a youthful Merlin and King Arthur, allowed to return from the past as a result of the nuclear devastation. Arthur still dreams of being able to rule a united Britain, although tribes developing in the North, led by the firey Queen Margaret of Scotland, dispute his claim. But there is a greater enemythe witch Morgan. Heather not only has to come to terms with her approaching womanhood, but also with her new-found talent for magic with animals. She sees the loneliness that magic has caused Merlin, and is not sure she wants to live like that. And Welly, nearsighted and overweight, is nothing like the great warrior he would like to be, but he is a staunch and loyal friend to both Merlin and Heather. A well-crafted novel, with equal doses of action and thoughtfulness, this should satisfy many readers. Susan M. Harding, Mesquite Public Library, Tex.

Format: Hardcover
A sequel to "Winter of Magic's Return" this book deals with King Arthur's return to England, with the aid of a very young Merlin and his companions. Set in a nuclear winter where technology barely exists and magic is staging a comeback this is a highly amusing book. Merlin (for reasons explained in the prior book) is in his late teens and his two companions are also teens of that era. The three of them, plus Arthur are attempting to reunite the various duchis, kingdoms and principalities that England has become, against Arthur's old enemy Morgan Le Fay. While not as fascinating as the book that preceded it, this is still a servicable sequel, although i wish there were one to this as well.

I just want to know when Ms. Service is going to come out with a third book!
This is a magical follow-up to WINTER OF MAGIC'S RETURN, and it focuses on the trio of close friends, Welly, Heather, and the youthened Merlin, now known as Earl. Five centuries after nuclear devastation, magic finally returns to the world, and King Arthur as returned to Britain in time of her need. However, as evidenced in the title, there is a new kind of magic appearing in the world -- and there may not be any room for Earl's magic now! As fun a romp as the previous book!

I thought this book would be so much better, but it lacked passion to me. It did no grip me, and want to read it again and again. The beginning of the book seemed to move slow, and was just boring. At the end of the book I was waiting for something big to happen and it just never did. For the most part it seemed like everything that happened in the book you know would happen. This book is an okay read, but I would not suggest to go out an buy your own copy of it. This book I would not likely read again.

Pamela F. Service's TOMORROW'S MAGIC is set five hundred years since a nuclear holocaust decimated the Earth's population, in Britain where mutants seem to be taking over. Wellington and Heather are concerned about trying to keep up school when their classmate discovers he's Merlin the wizard - and thus begins another Arthurian fantasy, this set in a future struggling for humanity and survival.
