About Blades of Valor
Thomas is finally in the Holy Land and reunited with Sir William, but is forced to travel on his own from the coast through Nazareth, and finally to Jerusalem. The road is a dangerous one—especially to a lone traveler. Bandits masquerade as slaves, traitors appear to be allies, and once again, Thomas doesn’t know whom to trust. He must rely on his own resources to discern friend from foe, and to finally discover the final key to the Druids' master plan before returning home to expose them.
Back in England, a final storm is brewing against Thomas, for the Druids are much more powerful than the Orphan King can even imagine.

Blades of Valor is the final book in the Merlin's Immortals series. The series itself does not take place in Merlin's time, but 1,000 years later in 1313. The first three books in this series are: The Orphan King, Fortress of Mist, and Martyr's Fire. From what I've read in other reviews, the four books are based on a book Brouwer wrote on an adult reading level: Magnus. The series was re-written for youth ages 8-12. This is an appropriate...
One reason I was excited to finish school a month ago was to get back to reading fun booksâ?"like Sigmund Brouwerâ??s YA book Blades of Valor, the fourth (and final?) book in the Merlinâ??s Immortals series. For me, reading a Brouwer book is like eating a bag of candyâ?"fun and easy. I tore through this book, eager to find out what happens to Thomas and Katherine and the other Druids and Immortals. As Blades of Valor opens, Thomas is...
Sigmund Brouwer's series, Merlin's Immortals comes to a close in this installment. The same themes that have run from the beginning emerge in this work. Good versus evil, and the discernment required to tell the different. The concept of trust runs strongly, and there is a small thread of redemption that emerges. Thomas of Magnus has ridden the roller-coaster of life. He goes from orphan to king of Magnus to losing the city and...
