This month The Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog Tour is featuring the first two books in Sigmund Brouwer‘s Merlin’s Immortals series, The Orphan King and Fortress of Mist. Here are brief descriptions of the books thanks to CBD.
Since Stonehenge, the ancient and mystery-shrouded Druids have been ghostly hunters, infiltrating the highest power circles of each new conqueror of Britain. Merlin himself was a Druid, until rebelling against them. He established his own line of descendents, bequeathing them the power and knowledge to hunt the Druids.
It is a dark time in medieval Europe. A young man, Thomas, journeys to an isolated castle, unaware of his ancestry, roots that stretch back to the Byzantine Empire. Thomas doesn’t realize that he carries the secrets needed to re-conquer the castle for the Merlins. At stake is the direction of mankind’s future because the Druids have the ability to end al progress in science, medicine and technologies, thus ensuring the Dark Ages continue for centuries more.
Now that Thomas has conquered Magnus, his work is only beginning. He must rid his land of the dark forces once and for all. But who will stand with him to battle against the powerful Druids? And after being abandoned by his “adopted family,” can he trust either Katherine or Isabelle with his secrets—and his heart?
Sigmund Brouwer is the author of eighteen novels with nearly three million copies in print. His recent novel The Last Disciple was featured in Time magazine and on ABC’s Good Morning America. Sigmund is married to Christian recording artist Cindy Morgan, and they and their two daughters divide their time between homes in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada and Nashville, Tennessee.
The folks on the CSFF tour will be featuring Brouwer and his books for the next 3 days, so be sure to check out their links.
