Mortal Conquests of the Dark Ages

The Wayfarers

A Whimsical Historical Fantasy Novel

A time has come when legendary creatures will rebel against the encroachment of humankind. Their struggle is a desperate attempt to save their races from simply becoming fairy tales of the humans who fear them. There is hope for some, but not all will prevail.

Medieval Britain is in turmoil. The governing council of Wynelvenest has been overthrown, and the new elf king has declared war upon all of humanity. Poverty, famine, and uprisings plague the land. This is the compelling story of a young boy who must survive in a world that history will forever deem as "The Dark Ages".


Hezekiah "Zeke" of Dumnonia is a simple farm boy who must flee his home after accidentally killing his cruel stepfather. Zeke's flight takes him to the wondrous city of Haven's Rest where his rotten luck steadily worsens when he again breaks the law by freeing a "nefarious" Halfling sailor from the hangman's noose.

Fleeing the city, the two begin gathering about them several unlikely wayward companions as they travel across the realms. Together they will discover the true meaning of friendship.


David Michael Dean Sr. is a student of the human condition, wielding the written craft to enrapture the mind much like an artist wields a brush. The pages are a blank canvas on which to draw from a unique talent matched only by a very active imagination.

Mortal Conquests of the Dark Ages merges medieval history with a whimsical mixture of fantasy in a way that will keep readers coming back for more.
