Feedback from Readers


“I’ve never read anything Arthurian, but we were given this book as a gift and read it aloud as a family. We were immediately swept into another world that we found absolutely irresistible. Each chapter left us craving for more, anxious for the next time we could imbibe in this feast of words. Written almost like a screenplay for a thriller, we loved all the rich colourful details that transported us from one epic scene to another. The second book is on our Christmas list, and we can hardly wait. This book, and likely the rest in the series, must certainly be made into movies.

“The reader hops from country to country in a nail-biting drama that pulls back the curtain on the little-known historical facts surrounding one of Hitler’s obsessions. Here, fact is more intriguing than fiction and makes The Lucifer Scroll one of those books you can’t put down. I keep waiting for the militia to come to the rescue of the weak and end the tension but it goes on. I sense a parallel to the events of history today. Perhaps the sequel will tell all or leave me wondering.”

After reading a few reviews for The Excalibur Parchment by Barrie Doyle, we agree that it would be a great addition to our collection.  We have also ordered book 2 in the series – The Lucifer Scroll.  We hope you enjoy these exciting new reads.

She wins a free copy of Book 2 in the trilogy (coming later this year) plus gets a character in the story named after her. She has chosen (wisely, I think) to be a goodie!

She was reading the book while having a curbside foot massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

We received shots of people reading the book waiting for a bus in a snowstorm, in the middle of a ruined abbey in Wales, at the beach in Australia and at Disney World in Florida. Thanks to all who entered and congrats to Brenda McClelland!
