472 A.D. Britains greatest king Arthur Pendragon is dead, killed by his evil nephew, Modred, and Merzail, the son of the wizard Merlin, prays in desperation for help. His kind, the wizards who served Arthur loyally and protected Britain during his reign, have been declared heretics by the leaders of the emerging faith, Christianity, and are being hunted down and killed by their armies. His prayer is answered by the Lady of the Lake, the keeper of the sword Excalibur. She gives him the sword and commands him to lead his people in a new world to which she will send them. In their new home, they take a new name for themselves: Zagi.
After ruling an empire spanning a galaxy for 3,000 years, the Zagi are overthrown by a demon called Armeggon, and their salvation rests with DraKain, the leader of an army of elite warriors, whose massive starship the Thermopylae is the one weapon that can defeat their enemy. His quest to destroy Armeggon will lead him to discover vast magical powers within himself and his birthright as the true emperor of the Zagi.About the Author
