01. Merlin’s Mistake: Brian and Tertius set out on a quest to find a wizard and save a kingdom from an evil knight
All his life, Brian has craved a grand adventure. On his sixteenth birthday, he meets the young traveler Tertius and knows it’s a sign that his adventure is about to begin. Tertius is on a mission to find a wizard to teach him magic, and Brian promises to help him. But before they can begin, the two must pass through Meliot, a small kingdom with a terrible problem: every year, it must pay tribute to the wicked Black Knight, or else he will cut off the king’s head. When Brian falls in love with one of the king’s twin daughters, he’s ready to do whatever it takes to win her hand in marriage, even if it means finding the one knight prophesied by Merlin to destroy the Black Knight and rid Meliot of his evil forever.
With the help of a mysterious old woman, Brian and Tertius set out from Meliot, both swearing to help the other with his mission. But they know their journey will be far from easy. If the two boys can persevere, they may discover that sometimes, what you seek is right in front of you all along.
02. The Testing of Tertius: Brian and Tertius are back, but this time, the stakes are higher than ever
When Brian and Lianor receive a coded message for Merlin, the know it’s urgent that they take it to him at once. Merlin’s apprentice, Tertius, couldn’t be happier to see them, but Merlin quickly realizes that the news is more serious than anyone could have imagined: the dark wizard Urlik is back, and he has vowed to take over King Arthur’s empire and destroy all who oppose him. As Merlin attempts to contact an old mentor, he is tricked and falls under Urlik’s spell. Without Merlin, how will the three stand against the most evil power England has ever known?
It’s up to Brian, Tertius, Lianor, and their friends to rescue Merlin and save their world from Urlik’s wicked plans. But the wizard is cunning, and it will take all their strength, skills, and smarts—and a little help from King Arthur himself—to have even a hope of triumphing over evil.
