9780956810335: The Last Seal

What caused the Great Fire of London? The Last Seal offers an explanation... September 1666: a struggle between two secret societies threatens to destroy London. Three hundred years previously the Praesidum defeated and incarcerated a demon beneath the city. Now the Liberati aim to release it and gain its power for themselvesAgents of the King are seeking four suspected foreign spies who are, in reality, disparate and unlikely heroes: GABRIEL, the sole remaining member of the Praesidum, crippled by his fear of failure; FREYA, a young thief orphaned by the Great Plague, driven by poverty and self-interest; TOBIAS, a cynical physician, obsessed by his desire for vengeance against the Liberati cavalier who killed his father, and finally and most vitally, BEN, a Westminster schoolboy, whose guilt over his parents' death threatens to destroy him. Yet these four must overcome their personal problems and work together if they are to foil the evil plans of the Liberati, protect the city and gain the means to defeat the demon. Thrown together by chance when Ben finds an ancient scroll revealing the location of arcane seals that bind the demon beneath London, the story launches into a battle between the Liberati and Praesidium, a battle which takes place within the Great Fire of London. Ultimately, Ben and his friends must confront and defeat both the demon and the evils of the Liberati to save their city and themselves.

From the Author:

The Great Fire of London raged from September 2nd to 5th and destroyed the heart of the medieval city of London. Some 13,000 houses and hundreds of churches, guild houses, warehouses and historical buildings went up in smoke. 80,000 people were made homeless. 

I have always found this great event fascinating and started researching it in detail a few years back. I started reading around what beliefs and superstitions people had. I found about the widespread paranoia about foreign plots and conspiracies that people had at the time as well as their belief in magic being real. 

All that came together very quickly into a idea. I asked myself what if the fire was not just an accident, what if there really were secret societies involved and a supernatural explanation behind the great event.

About the Author:

I was born in Ilkeston in Derbyshire, UK and live in Sutton Coldfield in the West Midlands. I work as a General Practitioner with a North Birmingham practice. I am married with two children.
I am a Young adult Sci-fi, historical fiction and fantasy writer. I also write book and board game reviews and online articles on historical and gaming related topics. I own my own small publishing house, Mercia Books, and I am part of a board game design house Medusa Games.
A keen player of board games and other games I am one of the directors of UK Games Expo (the UK's largest hobby games convention). I am a board game designer and my first Board Game 'The Great Fire on London 1666' was published by Medusa Games and Prime Games in October 2010.
