Description of The Orphan King, Merlin's Immortals Series Book 1 by Sigmund Brouwer

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.

3 StarsGood introduction to the series
First, I was attracted to the book for its cover, not just the design but the name itself: Orphan, King, Merlin, Immortals, that’s sounds cool, the mysterious guy and the “medieval feeling” attached to it. The narration pace flows well, you can get some details from here and there, and know where you are, and whom the characters are. It’s easy to identify the main characters but also you can feel identified with one of them, their personalities are nicely crafted. The “team” formula while simple remain powerful trough the story. As a christian book, a message of faith and confidence on God unfolds from begining to the end. It’s not an “in your face” message, which is good, and takes more strenght from the plot itself, so nothing seems forced. In the other hand, the feeling I had with the book was like when you push fastforward to a movie. Yes, you get the glimpse of the story, but some details get lost. In some parts I just couldn’t relate to a place description because there wasn’t enough detail. There was more potential with details on places, characters, and action. Talking about this topic, being a historical-action-medieval story I expected an epic climax full of action, fighting and maybe some, just some little blood, but instead there’s a weak solution to solve a strong conflict. At the end, the book finishes very well. Left me wanting to read the next book, which is expected to be released early in 2013, and also wishing the story to be more developed and exciting. Disclosure: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for an honest review.
