The greed-filled tyrant, King Jason, massacres the people of Gilleon over mine rights.
Merlin and the Brotherhood battle against King Jason's force of 9,000 and must end this madness.
The Brotherhood Merlin: Book One – Gilleon: Five hundred years after the death of King Arthur, King Jason, a sadistic tyrant of Visi-Galia attacks the peaceful township of Gilleon. Because he was unfairly denied a proper chance to compete for valuable mine rights and outbid by a Councilman from Gilleon, he invades Gilleon’s vulnerable townships to force the Council to negotiate with him. Merlin, the lead knight in Lycenea, has foreseen just such a predicament. With the gifts of premonition, telepathy and intelligence, he and 9 of his most formidable knights of the Brotherhood battle against Jason and his force of nine thousand.
Merlin and his brethren lead the Visi-Gauls in a high stakes game of cat and mouse. King Jason, though capricious, is not stupid. He uses every means at his disposal to eliminate Merlin. So, who will prove the victor? Fighting a severe war of attrition, it seems at times that King Jason will inevitably win; but don’t count the Merlin out. He is beyond slippery. But, every time it seems that King Jason has the gifted knight cornered, he is thwarted yet again.
The Orphans: Sylvia, Adele, and Dante
At stake is everything. King Jason’s deadly knights holds the fate of the prisoners who are awaiting to be sold into slavery. Specifically, two girls who were attacked in Missalia, are now orphaned and are at the mercy of the sadistic King. Will Merlin and his band of knights be able to rescue them in time?
Adele, the older sister, plans her escape. Will she prove successful or will her plans be foiled? And, if she is caught, what will become of her and her sister, Sylvia?
Dante, a boy from Coifen, is also now orphaned. He is the sole survivor of a brutal attack on his family. An unlikely heroine has come to his rescue- a mysterious white wolf. Unfortunately, the attack has left him temporarily blind. He and his guardian make their refuge in a remote cave. In addition, he clings desperately to the hope that God has spared him for a reason. Every night he goes to bed, he says a prayer to his talisman, the Merlin. It’s a game piece and the last gift his father gave him before he was forced to abandon his son. Then, all hell broke loose. Will Dante be rescued? And, will he find a permanent haven? His fate also lies in the hands of the Merlin.
The jaw-dropping confrontation leaves you breathless!
