Martin Weston of Apex Reviews read and critiqued my first book, “The Brotherhood of Merlin: Book One.” As an author publishing my very first book in The Brotherhood series, I can tell you how anxious and nerve racking it is to wait for any book review. It is like waiting for a blind date knowing a quick reject or acceptance is imminent.

Much lore exists about ancient kings and queens, embattled knights, and the glorious realms for which they heroically fought. While the stories themselves typically aren’t unique, the legendary characters they highlight often leap from the page directly into the reader’s imagination.
Such is the case with The Brotherhood of Merlin. Masterfully crafted by author Rory Nelson, this sweeping tale of a long gone era both stirs the soul and pulls at the heartstrings. Chronicling more than just medieval battles, The Brotherhood of Merlin tackles such challenging issues as family loyalty, personal sacrifice, and courage in the face of certain doom.
In addition, The Brotherhood of Merlin is written in such convincing detail, readers will find it hard to believe Nelson didn’t walk the Earth during the exact time and place in which the story is set. His characters are original and life-like, the scenarios in which they find themselves are ultra-realistic, and the plot is uniquely presented – with an intriguing twist sure to leave readers wanting more.
Fans, friends, and family, I am so happy to be passing this on to you. Please share this review and get the book at Amazon for $0.99 while you can. And if you’re thirsty for more, don’t forget to download its free prequel “Dawn of the Merlin” from www.rorydnelson.com with signup.
