Summary Excerpt Comments

Druids is a medieval fantasy adventure of an isolated lad born with an eerie sense that earns him the suspicion and contempt of those who fail to see it as a gift. He joins with two renowned knights – both caught up in a terse gender rivalry – while on a perilous quest to liberate a ruined land from a druid-lord’s deranged sorcery. It raises images of a nerve-wracking game of chess come to life: a broken castle, a captive queen in dire need of being released, a dread knight whose very name terrorizes foes, and underling foot-soldiers deemed “pons” -- who yet harbor a latent strength of their own. And rippling through the saga, like a whispery breeze, is the mysterious Cryptic Sense – possessed by those destined to become druids. A blend of ancient beliefs like animism and the early science of alchemy – and draped in the Native American spiritualism of Manitou. – the Cryptic Sense of this tale explores the tight bond between druids & nature.
