About this title

Synopsis:

In a mystical fantasy story unfolding at a starkly real secondary school named Culver Military Academy, cadets Tim Marks and Merthyn Jones are attacked by a Native American cult group, followers of a malevolent goddess. Surviving the initial attack, the boys kill a fearsome water monster rising from the depths of Lake Maxinkuckee, using swords that they later learn are Excalibur and the sword of the biblical King David. After an assault by a shape changer in their dormitory, both boys prepare to become initiates in the Midewewin Native American society and postulants for knighthood. Assisted by their faculty mentor and his colleagues, the cadets prevail against formidable challenges to bring the story to a satisfying conclusion. Or do they?
