LITHEGOL: The Prophecy
This new chapter to the legend of King Arthur begins in the year 2025. Michael Brenlan is a 15-year-old boy who was born with incredible and unusual abilities, that are only becoming more powerful and he doesn’t know why. He learns from his parents that his destiny is to become a great leader. They present him with a box that only he can open on his Anointing day or his 16th birthday. Once Michael opens that box, he begins to discover his true potential within the Kingdom of Lithegol. He must stop the Legion of Gaddin and learn to harness the magical power of Sullice on his way to fulfilling the ancient prophecy of the High Sentinel. The fate of the world is at stake, as the Legion has taken over the United States government and is rolling out a storm of evil to blanket the Earth.
“This story is coming to life — big time!
The battle scenes are dramatically written with picturesque descriptions and powerful images. Very well done! I like how you link the battles between the Legion and those following the High Sentinel to the forces of good and evil. You take advantage of the ending to create several teaching moments for young minds and hearts, which is a major strength of this novel.
You have such a rich imagination and so much more for your characters to witness and experience in future books.”

“The character development was spot on. It captured my liking even though I can tell it is geared towards tweens/teens. I liked it.”
“I was totally hooked! You did a great job making it compelling right from the start! It was suspenseful. I didn’t like putting it down! I really, really enjoyed it and think you did a fabulous job! I can't wait to see what happens with Michael.”
“I liked the balance of creative weaponry, battles and strategy, and emotional family/friend relationships and progressive storyline. Your writing is great, Josh. I really liked it, especially the second half. That’s where I really got lost in the story."
“You have got a winner!!! The fact that Michael is (spoiler)... is a new premise with so many possibilities as a new character. Love that!"
“I really liked the uniqueness of it. It reminded me of the Percy Jackson novels at first but it’s also something totally different. I loved it! It was such a good book!!”
“I liked it better than Fablehaven. I couldn’t put it down. This is one of only two books where I almost cried. I’m ready for the second book!”
“I loved it! I couldn’t put it down. I read the entire book in one day!”

"I absolutely loved this book from the very beginning! The dialogue the characters have between each other is amazing! Josh described every scene so well I can picture it. GREAT READ! Do recommend this book if you like fantasy!"
