The Excalibur Mystery

The Excalibur Mystery is the third in a planned series of fictional works, The Glaston Chronicles. In this book Matt Bergin and his cousins learn more about the Abbey at Glastonbury, and also about King Arthur, and his legendary sword, Excalibur.

Against the background of the historic medieval Battle of Bosworth, which took place in 1485 between King Richard III and Henry Tudor, they find themselves in a struggle with evildoers fascinated by Excalibur, who want it for the occult power it will give them.

They also have the task of rescuing their cousin, Theo, who is at large in medieval England, and in great danger.

The Excalibur Mystery, like its predecessors, the Glaston Secret and Journey to Castle Raven, is the story a battle between good and evil which has a fascinating plot, enthralling characters, suspense, excitement and ever-present danger.

This book is particularly meant for 12-16 year olds, but can also be read older young people, or by adults.

“In an age when young readers are often exposed to secular literature with pessimistic and occult influences, the Glaston Chronicles by Donal Foley provide a refreshing alternative. The Excalibur Mystery continues the series of the Glaston Chronicles with the same spirit of excitement and courage within a Catholic vision of history and Divine Providence.”

“I enjoyed The Excalibur Mystery. The themes of loyalty, of strength in the face of adversity, of the power of faith and prayer, should appeal to young people. A young reader can also learn from this book about English history, architecture, customs, and legends; and it also gives them a view of King Richard that doesn’t fit the prejudices of so many historians.”

A review of The Excalibur Mystery by Donal Anthony Foley, from Mary Ann Kreitzer at Les Femmes, The Truth:

The third book in Donal Foley’s excellent series, The Glaston Chronicles, is finally here and it’s well worth reading, The Excalibur Mystery, continues the adventures of Matt Bergin and his cousins, Luke and Annie Martin. The teenagers use the portal at Glastonbury Tor to travel through time in order to solve problems and aid those in need. They originally stumbled into the portal accidentally when Annie’s little dog, Toby, disappeared at the Tor inside the arch and the cousins ran after him. They found themselves in World War II France embroiled in the underground movement.

A review of The Excalibur Mystery by Donal Anthony Foley, from Steve McEvoy at Book Reviews and More:

“I am very thankful this long teased third volume in this series has finally been released. The books are now with a new publisher, and the first two volumes have been rebranded and reprinted. I reread books one and two before reading this one. I have read a several of Donal Anthony Foley’s nonfiction works and have loved them all. Both books he has written and books he has edited. This was the third of his fictional works I have read, and it is an excellent story. It is an awesome story, in a classic style and genre.”
