Description: The discovery of an ancient artifact at an archaeological site sets off a chain of events that puts the world in danger as a ruthless group of Nationalists attempt to raise a villain from Arthurian legend with the hope of gaining power, and fulfilling a long-standing prophecy for England. The only ones who can stop them are Bridgette McGuire, ex-monster hunter, and her grandson Duncan, who is soon swept up into a world of magic and myth as he comes face-to-face with the legends from England’s past and his own complicated family history.
Description: There’s no turning back now as Bridgette drags Duncan deeper and deeper into the heart of British mythology and folklore to search for a way to stop a rising group of Nationalists from bringing an ancient and terrible power to life. Duncan’s just battled an absolutely impossible creature from legend and been shot – by his Gran, no less! – so he feels he’s due a few explanations, starting with how his nice, perfectly normal Gran knows so much about monsters and how to deal with them?! And what else has his family been hiding from him?
Description: Duncan and his Gran were too late to stop the Nationalists, and now the ancient King is awake, looking to take power over his land once again and unite it under his rule – spelling disaster for Britain. The only way to stop him now is to track down the legendary grail! But with Arthur’s army growing they’re running out of time and resources, and what does Duncan’s disastrous first date, Rose, have to do with any of this?
Description: With the fate of the world in the balance, Duncan must finally accept his role in the larger story. But has Gran trained him well enough to defeat the undead King of the Britons by himself?
Description: Although Bridgette and Duncan were able to escape the Otherworld, their adventure is only just beginning! As the chaos of Arthur’s retrurn reaches London, an artifact at the British Museum is stolen. But is it Arthur who’s interested in the relic… or someone, or something, new?
Description: With Merlin-and the magic he wields-back at his side, King Arthur is stronger than ever. Brigette and Duncan continue to fight against Camelot’s dark forces, but when Merlin calls to life another story entirely, will the two heroes save the day? Or will they find themselves becoming the villains they’re sworn to defeat.
Description: Bad news comes in threes and so do the creatures terrorizing London – and if they’re going to save the city, Gran and Duncan will need to revive a connection with an old enemy. After all, you’re always better with the devil you know… right?
Description: The veil between the Otherworld and the human world is thin, and as the story changes around Duncan and Gran, each foe becomes harder to defeat…and predict. They may be holding the line, but enemies both new and old are closing in fast, and even Gran and Duncan may not be prepared for what’s next!
Description: The arrival of Beowulf and Grendel from the legendary Old English poem was an unexpected one, leaving Team Gran to wonder – if Beowulf can be brought to life, what other heroic figures or deadly creatures might get dredged up from the annals of history to wreak havoc and destruction across the country?! Meanwhile, in the Otherworld, Merlin is up to his old tricks and crossing over with another story was just the beginning of his plan . . .
Description: Gran, Duncan and Rose are on a new quest to learn more about Merlin’s plan when they come face-to-face with… the fearsome Green Knight! But if they want to track down the powerful Nimue and stay one step ahead of their enemy, it seems that the unlikeliest member of the trio will need to play this knight’s twisted game… even if it means facing certain death.
