Godric is the protagonist and covers him as a young child(not that much) and mostly focuses on him and Salazar growing up together and becoming Knights of Avalon. An Avalon where Merlin is a long dead historic figure. It really tries to portrait a different history period and does it in a similar style as LoTR. It's also dirty, harsh and bloody. In a sense it doesn't really read like a Harry Potter story and the author is a bit creative with the age of the events(around 1090A.D) to match with the known history. But if you enjoy history pieces this could become the defining Founders fan fiction with a great immersion. It really impressed me. To me the level of detail and execution is 5/5 for the available Book One. Book 1 is complete and I'm looking forward to Book 2 of this series.
