However, his powers also remain untried and untested. The Seraphinium follows Kael's journey as he discovers not only how to use those powers, but also what part they must play in the salvation of the Nearing World.Review for Book I: The Merchant and the Menace:5.0 out of 5 stars The Old and the New in the Next Great Fantasy SeriesIf you like David Eddings and Terry Brooks, then this is the book for you. Like Eddings, McHugh loves to play around with old philosophical and religious ideas, dressing them up in new clothes for a night on the town in the 21st century. Like Brooks, McHugh is enchanted by the same tropes all fantasy lovers are enchanted by: elves, a young hero shepherded by a mysterious but wizard-like guide, and big battles with swords and magic. But McHugh is no Tolkien-lite. He has provided his readers with some fresh creations that fill the imagination with vivid pictures and scenes, reminding the reader why fantasy is such a beloved genre.

The Seraphim. Beings of power, created to guide the world in times of trouble. They live their lives of near immortality in servitude to a lesser creature, man.

One rebelled. Amird, the Hand of the Creator, bridled at the sovereignty of his lord. In defiance he murdered a brother and was cast into the Mists of Chaos.

Millennia passed as the Deceiver plotted his return. Backed by the might of a seemingly unstoppable army of Ulrog Stone Men and their fire-eyed Malveel Lords, Amird plans to wrest control of the world from the Creator and rain violence on the humans he once served.

All that stands between Amird and his triumphant return are the remnants of battered human armies and the hope that Seraphim, loyal to the Creator, still roam this world.

Kael knows little of this struggle. His quiet village lies deep in the Southlands, unchanged and unchallenged by the wars raging in the frozen North. In fact, the boy longs for a bit of adventure and freedom from the boring routine at his fathers inn.

Freedom comes at a cost. Kaels first journey outside his secluded village results in a tragedy so deep it destroys the boys sheltered world and immerses him in the struggle.

Revelations surface. Kael uncovers a past linking him to legends. He grapples with a present that spins from his control. Lastly, he confronts a future that demands he tap long dormant power and stake a claim in the defense of the human races.

Kaels first step toward that future lies through the darkness of the Nagur Wood, and the boy is unaware of the darkness that prowls the Nagur!, BOOK III of The Seraphinium Series

*************************************************************
Kael and his companions are determined to rescue Lilywynn from the Ulrog Horde. The company splits. One group struggles through the rugged Scythtar Mountains, home of the Ulrog, in a dangerous race to overtake the girls captors. The other, led by Ader the Seraph, rushes across the Eru plains, hoping to outstrip the stone men and halt them at the Mnim Valley.

Neither task is without peril for both groups not only pursue, but are pursued.

A desperate Ulrog priest, Hnarg, gambles all and faces death if he does not deliver the head of Ader to his masters.

At the foot of the Scythtar, the Malveel Lord Woil discovers the tracks of humans entering his realm. He leaves the death of Ader to his lesser minions and drives his Ulrog up the mountain range in frenzied pursuit of those who dare set foot upon the conquered lands of the Malveel.

Book III of The Seraphinium leaves the comfort of the protected lands south of the battlefields and squarely places Kael and his company within the bloody clash for control of the Nearing World., -, SPOILER ALERT: BOOKS I, II & III OF THE SERAPHINIUM; THE MERCHANT AND THE MENACE, THE POOL AND THE PEDESTAL & THE TREES AND THE NIGHT are available on Amazon.
