Following a series of dramatic dreams and visions, Dylan finds himself propelled into a personal quest for the Holy Grail spanning several decades. He is spurred on by recollections of his past life as Maelgwn Gwynedd, who fought alongside King Arthur and Uther Pendragon during their battles against the Saxons in the 6th century. This war was sanctioned by the Roman Church, who were determined to eradicate the threat posed to their hegemony by the Celtic Church, whose fusion of Gnostic and Druidic beliefs had created a mystery religion revealing man’s true purpose on earth.
Dylan’s quest reunites him with a reincarnated Arthur and Uther, who have returned as spiritual warriors to aid in the transition to a Golden Age of justice, peace and love.
His challenging journey leads to the unravelling of the mysterious 6th-century ‘Melkin Prophecy’, which describes in obscure Latin the location of the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea where, legend has it, the Holy Grail is also to be found. Deciphering the Prophecy through otherworldly revelations leads Dylan to the heartland of the original Avalon in the ancient Welsh kingdom of Siluria, whose connection to Joseph and his followers has long been overlooked.
Assisted by his Grail Maiden companion, they discover a ruined chapel hidden amongst trees on a rocky tor overlooking a river close to the sea. What follows is the unfolding of the earth-shattering mystery of the Holy Grail, an enigma which has baffled Grail seekers for centuries.
The novel is based on the author’s real life experiences. Although certain names have been changed and scenarios condensed for dramatic effect, it is nevertheless an accurate portrayal of events.
