Overview

Samuel Osmond opens his eyes in a world he has always dreamed of, where legends are more than bedtime stories and fabled heroes battle fearsome foes. In his hand are the mysterious dice that brought him here, to this world called Metverold. He remembers casting the dice in his bedroom, and the red light that engulfed him, but has no idea why he has been brought to this place. Fortunately, he will soon meet Angeline, a fata tasked with helping Samuel understand his role as the new Lorekeeper, a guardian of legends.

But Metverold is a harsh world, and Samuel quickly grasps the danger he is in. Hiding among the Briton army of King Vortigern, on the run from Saxon invaders, Samuel must find a dark sorcerer who threatens to change history before a force from an earlier time is unleashed upon Dinas Ffaraon. And what of this strange boy who knows much more than he should? Could he be the key to it all?

Discover the story that has captivated readers all over the world, and join Samuel as he journeys across mythical lands and fights alongside legendary heroes.

Meet the Author

Martin Rouillard is the author of the best-selling series Tales of the Lorekeepers, which includes Rise of the Red Dragon (2012), The Giants of Albion (2013), and The Last Prince of Troy (2014). The first books in the series have been among the best-selling ebooks in France since publication, making their way into the Top 100 on Amazon France and other retailers. The series will include three more books, to be published over the next few years.

Martin is passionate about writing, and is also an avid student of mythology and its impact on the history of our world. He believes the legends of our past have forged who we are today. Without those tales, our world would be very different. With the Tales of the Lorekeepers series, Martin aims to entertain his readers, and also to introduce them to legends they may not know, but that have shaped the world in which we live in one way or another.

Martin is French-Canadian, and writes in both French and English. He lives near Quebec City, in Quebec, Canada. With a background in business management, self-publishing was a natural fit for him. When Martin is not writing, promoting his books, or helping new authors publish their work, he enjoys traveling, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.

    This was one of the best books I've read, the author was so descriptive that it was daytime, and I felt like it was night time and was storming, I absolutley loved the book, I hope he makes another book. I will certainly be buying. I wish there were more stars, if there was an infinite number of stars, I would certainly choose, buy the book. Do not second guess.
