A Darkness Past Midnight (The Merlin Protocol, Book 1)

By M. E. Mendrygal

Sci-Fi, Fantasy | eBook


What happens when prophesies of Armageddon self-fulfill? When prayers summon the End of Days, but not the Rapture? When the horrors of War’s aftermath make the billions who died screaming the lucky ones? Can a competing prophesy set things right again? American computer scientist Steven Rayne stakes his life on it. Marooned in Britain, robbed of his wife and unborn child—as well as, it must be said, his sanity—he’s changed his name to Merlin. Sublimely inspired or only barking mad, he may yet find destiny in the audacious nom de guerre. In 2041, a champion emerges from his hermitage in a fabulous underwater Sanctuary. Wielding technologies that rival the powers of his namesake, a new Merlin looks to relight hope’s cold candle in a new Dark Age. He wants to save the world by recreating Camelot; he’s going to find that legends have minds of their own.

M. E. Mendrygal is a writer, designer, and 2- & 3-D illustrator. "A Darkness Past Midnight" is the first book in his science fiction/fantasy series, "The Merlin Protocol." A surname derived from a Slavic word for "mandrake" suggests his affinity for myth and legend is a natural one. And magic is a reasonable explanation for the Brownian motion that delivered him to this point in his career. Currently preparing Book 2, "Shadows of Light and Sound," for indie publication, Mendrygal lives in suburban Atlanta with Donna, his wife, editor and muse, and their mad feline, Cleo.
