Valley Of The Kings
Three years have passed since the events at Vercovicium. Archy has enrolled in studies at King's College London. One day a telegram arrives inviting Archy to attend the Valley Of The Kings in Egypt. Something has been found in the tomb of an ancient King, and Archy could hold the key to its origins. Fuelled by curiosity Archy embarks on his next step along the dark path in search of The Magdon.
Origins Of The Magdon: Valley Of The Kings marks the second in a series of episodic adventures following Archibald "Archy" Skevington as he struggles to find out the truth behind the hidden monster. Archy's second encounter happens three years after the events at Vercovicium, but the adventure lasts for the rest of his life.
Note from the author:
The whole idea of the Magdon came about when my youngest son as a toddler asked me what a noise was in the woods as we walked home. Instead of telling him what it was I made up the idea of the Magdon and since then it has been part of our family adventures. Between this and the constant questions and my sons have grown up I have created a whole mythology and background behind the monster. It was during a conversation with one of my children's teachers that I was told how much I had captured my children's imaginations, and they encouraged me to write the story down. As a result, I have decided to break down the "origins" story into a series to make it accessible to younger ages but also keep the story clean and to the point setting myself a limit of 10,000-12,000 words per volume. The fact my children have totally immersed themselves into the twisted world of monsters I have created, it only seems fair (for them and me) that I share it with the world. So here is truly the madness of my imagination and something I have made so real and believable for my children.
Hopefully, you will enjoy the adventure.
