The Order of Ascalon

By Daniel J. Franks

Young adult | eBook


A magical, mystery adventure for people of all ages... After a group of drunken yobs mug sixteen-year-old Peter Butler one evening, he discovers that he has ancient magical powers which will change the course of his life. Powers that will embroil him in the oldest conflict in human history, fought by influential and deadly secret organisations. Embarking on a daring magical adventure around the world, deciphering clues that lead him to long lost and powerful artefacts, hidden in famous landmarks, the Illuminati hunt him. The Arcanium need him. Governments want him! Review by bookviral.com: "A quest that arcs across the centuries, The Order Of Ascalon is the debut fantasy adventure novel from author Daniel J Franks. It’s an imaginative read, with Franks weaving the requisite elements of popular fantasy and is bound to have readers engrossed in no time as a gamut of historical characters are given an intriguing makeover. From Merlin to George Washington, each adds an interesting dimension that is in keeping with the tone and levity of the yarn Franks spins. Cleverly integrating myth and legend, the magical elements are often over the top, but in the context of his young protagonist’s quest they certainly keep the pages turning. Making for an entertaining read that is unpredictable without being overly complicated, whilst the action rarely slows to idle. It isn’t a tale to wallow in deep thematic prose and for that reason is likely to have a broader spectrum of appeal beyond its genre. The Order Of Ascalon is certainly an ambitious start to a series with much potential and is sure to attract many interested and enthusiastic followers. It is certainly recommended."

Biography I was born a long, long time ago in 1979, in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. Back when the dinosaurs played tennis at Stonehenge. I grew up in a lovely little town called Whitby. I am married and have two wonderful daughters. I like coffee, gherkins and writing fantasy stories. I have so far written one book "The Order of Ascalon", which is part of a trilogy. I am currently writing the next installment called "The Order of Ascalon - Retribution".
