The Dark Tides
by Mark Piggott
The Drake family has known more than its share of tragedy at sea. After the devastating and mysterious loss of their patriarch, Bryan, to a strange storm, his grieving wife and children sail to his last known location to lay a wreath in his honor. They are caught in a storm freakishly similar to the one that took Bryan from them. A funeral becomes a joyous reunion, as they find him alive and well but equally stranded on the mysterious island of Avalon, where the descendents of King Arthur rule a world filled with knights, elves, dwarves … and magic!
Lord Bryan MoonDrake–as he is now known–has attained the rank of the Gil-Gamesh, protector of the realm. He helps his wife and two of his children build new lives in a medieval society. His daughter Ashley has returned to Avalon with wonderful news. Bryan sees an opportunity to bring his family back together at last, so they plan a grand Avalonian wedding for Ashley and her true love, Andrew.
But all is not well in the kingdom. Dark forces arise to fulfill a prophecy to resurrect Morgana le Fay, the most powerful sorceress in the history of Avalon. If successful, she will unleash the Dark Tides to destroy the line of Pendragon once and for all. To save his family, his new home, and his king, can the Gil-Gamesh overcome incredible odds and powers beyond his comprehension to rid Avalon of Morgana’s evil forever?
Praise for The Dark Tides
“Mr. Piggott’s narrative is a refreshing take on a subject seen, hundreds, if not thousands of times before. The Authurian legends have been done before by a myriad of authors but Mr. Piggott’s spin on the trope make it accessible and entertaining!”
“This book is the second one, and can stand alone. It was a great read, very polished, and fantastical!”
“I do believe that Mr. Piggot has a wonderful imaginative gift and truly loves the fantasy/adventure genre.”
