The Peleg Chronicles
By Matthew Christian Harding
Reading Level: Grade 6 to adult
Book OneA witch has pronounced a curse on Lord McDougal. He and all his family will die by the end of the year. One by one, the others passed away. Now the nobel McDougal is the only one of his family left.
Fergus, his loyal servant, fights by his side as they encounter dragons, giants, evil priests, and other enemies from a pre-historic world. The two befriend orphan foundlings who are also in danger.
The author portrays the challenges of those who followed Noah's God in a hostile world. It ends in a dramatic scene. Wild beasts are sent on a Death Hunt of McDougal and his followers outside as the people inside the walled city watch. An exciting adventure story which leaves the reader craving for the second book.
Book TwoDanger and suspense continue in the second book as Lord McDougal and his servant Fergus are separated. The intrigue builds as king's courtiers, grave robbers, and the dragon priests plot against the orphan foundlings and their protectors - the paladins. Like the first book, the second story also ends with a dramatic flare as a main character faces unknown enemies in the arena.
