Author: Alexander Charalambides
You’ll love this dark but compelling set of fantasy tales filled with magic and adventure.
The Black Blade Trilogy is a darkly imaginative, contemporary fantasy as well as a fun read for anyone who’s ever had that fish-out-of-water feeling or been in the wrong place at the wrong time. With firm roots in the story of King Arthur and the legendary sword Excalibur, the story draws on elements of celtic myth to spur the hero on, or as one reviewer of Black Blade puts it “Black Blade is a well written story and has everything from action to paranormal and was very enjoyable to read.” – Bookbub Reviewer Joannee828
A novel is more than the story within it. The way the story is told is important too.
Using various points of view as well as the present tense, Alexander Charalambides takes his readers inside the main characters as the action happens; you’ll feel like you’re right there with American teens Lance and Megan, experiencing the magic and danger first hand as our college student heroes set off on a forbidden quest lead by three elderly and eccentric wizards.
The story is fast-paced and exciting, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing, all the way through short stories featuring the wizards in their youth through to the three full-length novels and one, never before seen novella, Merlin’s Quest, written especially for this collection.
