Blades of Valor
By Brouwer, Sigmund
Travel with Thomas from Jerusalem to England in this exciting conclusion to the Merlin's Immortals series. Thomas is finally in the Holy Land and reunited with Sir William, but is forced to travel on his own from the coast through Nazareth, and finally to Jerusalem. The road is a dangerous one--especially to a lone traveler. Bandits masquerade as slaves, traitors appear to be allies, and once again, Thomas doesn't know whom to trust. He must rely on his own resources to discern friend from foe, and to finally discover the final key to the Druids' master plan before returning home to expose them. Back in England, a final storm is brewing against Thomas, for the Druids are much more powerful than the Orphan King can even imagine.
