SWORDS at CULVER by Richard Gwyn Davies
Special Advance Release: not yet available from bookstores or other online booksellers! This promising new book is available exclusively at this location, for a limited time only!


ABOUT THE BOOK:

From John Buxton, head of the Culver Academies: “Pam and I both read it cover to cover and enjoyed it thoroughly. It was Culver’s/your version of The Rule of Four (Princeton) and The Dante Club (Harvard). The characters were well developed, and the plot fast moving. It is indeed a real ‘page turner.’ Bottom line - thumbs up!”

From the South Bend Tribune: “King Arthur, Star Wars, Harry Potter and more meet at Culver.”

In a mystical fantasy story unfolding at a starkly real secondary school named Culver Military Academy, cadets Tim Marks and Merthyn Jones are attacked by a Native American cult group, followers of a malevolent goddess. Surviving the initial attack, the boys kill a fearsome water monster rising from the depths of Lake Maxinkuckee, using swords that they later learn are Excalibur and the sword of the biblical King David. After an assault by a shape changer in their dormitory, both boys prepare to become initiates in the Midewewin Native American society and postulants for knighthood. Assisted by their faculty mentor and his colleagues, the cadets prevail against formidable challenges to bring the story to a satisfying conclusion. Or do they?

The BUDDHA at CULVER by Richard Gwyn Davies
Special Advance Release: not yet available from bookstores or other online booksellers! This promising new book is available exclusively at this location, for a limited time only!


ABOUT THE BOOK:

This is the sequel to SWORDS AT CULVER, a fantasy novel set at Culver Military Academy in Indiana, about which the South Bend Tribune wrote: “King Arthur, Star Wars, Harry Potter and more meet at Culver.”

In the sequel, once again, Merthyn Jones and Timothy Marks find themselves the targets of a pair of renegade and rogue Native Americans.

The Venerable Shi Wu Ling, a Buddhist monk joins Davies, Meek and Irwin to assist the Culver students in fighting off their attackers by introducing them to Tibetan Buddhist meditation techniques. Tim finds that, in his dreams, he can go back to the world of Pau-koo-shuck, the son of Pottawattamie Chief Aubenaube, who had been forced by tribal custom to kill his father because he had slain his mother. A group of Tibetan monks come to Culver to build and then destroy a mandala; their presence triggers a vicious attack on the boys’ classmate Jessica, leading to a healing ceremony for her performed by the Lama. Events rise to a crescendo when two cadets are captured by the rogue Indians-this leads to a titanic struggle in the Council Ring between the forces of good and evil.
