Follow the Author
Combining legitimate legends with actual historical events, Marshall Best weaves an epic story that portrays the ancient world as it might have been, a world which the ancient historians recorded as fact; a time when gods ruled the earth and strange creatures dominated the land. It is the era of civilized conquerors exploring distant and primitive new lands. Scant recordings left to us today by ancient writers only touch on the fringe of the fantastic and brutal reality that existed in those distant lands of the west. Into this age, young Guiamo enters the world stage as the great game-changer, and by his hand the gods and beasts become destined to disappear into myth and legend

Guiamo (Book 1)
Having destroyed the Fomori in Britain , Guiamo Durmius Stolo decides in 51 B.C. to bring the Cruthin people, once slaves to the Fomori, to Ireland , but encounters the Fomori who reside there as well. Guiamo discovers that the gods venerated by the Druids are unworthy. The gods are displeased with him and begin to work against him.
The author springs yet more surprises and again shows expert research and intense historic knowledge.
Our hero is now facing even more challenges, both from the creatures that want to destroy him and the jealousy from the Druids which could ultimately damage his reputation.
The real challenge for him is when he finds 4 volumes of ancient writing and in his quest to decipher them he realises that the teachings could have a massive impact on the life's of everyone and then discovers the treasures of Cichol.
The author brings all the previous books together in an excellent manner, the story is not as exciting as the last three but is much more philosophic especially when Guiamo is transcribing the lost volumes and gives us a different view point to Genesis from the bible.
The writer is always making the reader believe they are along side the characters with his descriptive writing style and enjoyable mythical creatures and the challenges from the gods.
A superb series of books which will appeal to anyone who has an interest in mythology with a lot of twists and turns which add flavour and substance.
I always enjoy novels when an author has taken care and really believes in what he is writing about and this shines through in an abundance in all of his stories.
This series of books will enchant and enthrall readers across all ages and make excellent reading for a bedtime story to create magical dreams.
