About the Author
Marshall Best is an avid reader, father of six and business owner. In the past several years he has found his love of writing as well. What began as a desire to write a story for his children has evolved into a nine book series. Marshall has done extensive research into the history behind the legends, people and places of England, Scotland and Ireland involved in his books. He loves being able to weave real people and legends into his stories making them come alive. He is definitely a writer that tends to the details often mapping out timetables, calendars, genealogies, etc. that pertain to his book to ensure that it is as realistic as possible. Marshall also enjoys putting real life issues into his books, delving into a bit of philosophy while entertaining with orcs, dragons, magic and battles. He is someone who loves a grand adventure but makes sure it is not a shallow one.

Having destroyed the Fomori in England, to eradicate them fully and stop them coming back, Morlanos has to cross the sea to Ireland. Taking with him the Cruthin people to establish their own settlements.
In pursuit of this venture he comes across even more dangerous creatures and has to call upon help from the gods.
The writer totally enthralls and absorbs the reader into a time gone by and again you feel you are there fighting and wanting to warn Morlanos of the danger he is facing.
Anyone who is interested in legends and has an vivid imagination and believes strange creatures and magic (or the belief that wizards/witches existed) governed the thoughts of the people and their lifestyles will find this an excellent read.
The fable is easily followed and the hidden messages you can pick up from the gods and their beliefs is one for the peruser to interpret for themselves.
The references at the end of the book to the language used is excellent and again shows the amount of time and care the writer has taken in producing another great book and can be read by all ages.
The fantasy adventures of Guiamo continued to build and develop into a story which is hard to put down. Just when you think it can’t get any better the author throws in another twist to the plot and off you go. The action is great and the adventure is fun. Marshall Best has done an excellent job of developing a great fantasy adventure.
As in the first two books of the series, Marshall Best did a great job of character development. He continues to build and strengthen the lead character, Guiamo, making him more believable and a true hero. Not only did the author continued to develop the hero of the story, but also continued to build a supporting cast of characters which were easy to identify with.
I really enjoyed reading Morlanos by Marshall Best and I highly recommend the book.
