Overview

Inspired by a real-life unsung hero, this amazing journey takes the reader into a world beyond our mortal comprehension. We learn that only a thin barrier separates what we mortals have always known and accepted as "reality," from what is "actual reality."

In "actual reality," Merlyn’s evil cousin tricks a modern teenager into removing Excalibur from its secret hiding place so he can use it to conquer new worlds and universes. Merlyn is forced to travel forward in time to bring the reluctant modern lad back to pre-Camelot in a desperate effort to retrieve the mystical sword before an ancient curse is let loose on the mortal’s universe.

As the modern lad named, Lance, is drawn into the centuries-long battle between warring magicians, he learns secrets about Excalibur’s origin, a special priest at Westminster Abbey, the true purpose for Stonehenge, secrets that Albert Einstein took to his grave, the numerous dimensional portholes leading into and out of The Forest Savage, as well as how the imps and elves govern their dimension.

Along the way Lance meets a host of intriguing characters, including a talking moose head mounted above the rock fireplace in Merlyn’s unique cottage. He discovers that outside the safe world he had comfortably existed, certain animals have personalities and voices to express themselves in extremely intelligent conversations. He soon realizes that any object around him might actually be alive.

Lance must battle his own feelings of inadequacy when he discovers that his fate and the fate of his world and universe are entwined and that he has no choice but to stay in the past and assist Merlyn on his quest to recapture Excalibur. They face overwhelming odds. In this strange and new world, fraught with unseen and unexpected peril, Lance and Merlyn race toward the deadline for retrieving Excalibur. It appears neither Fate, or time are on their side. They must rely on each other, and the special abilities Merlyn knows Lance possesses, if he will only believe.

Before Merlyn and Lance’s perilous journey reaches its eventual destination, and the final epic battle with evil, Lance will be able to answer the ancient riddle: If a man stares into a lake and sees his own reflection, which is the truest representation of himself; what others see reflected on the surface, or what he knows lies deep within?

You won't be able to put it down until the journey is done! I'll be keeping my eye out for more from this author most certainly!

Great book! The 2nd I've read by this author. The other book "Defiant Victim" was also great just in a different vein. "Merlyn and the Mortal's Curse" is suspense, intrigue and mystery wrapped around a coming-of-age story based on a real relationship between the author, Otis Farmer, and a friend. Luckily, the ending of the book left itself open to a sequel (or sequels) so we should be hearing more from this author. Read it...you'll like it!

Sit back and travel with Lance and Merlyn as they are faced with life challenges in a mythical realm of time and space, This book will captivate those between the teens and 90 plus young at heart. I hope a second book is forthcoming with new adventures for Lance and Merlyn.
