Series description

The premise of this series is that a group of mercenaries, known as the Damned and led by Captain Gideon, failed in their duty to protect a caravan. They did die gallantly attempting to rescue the survivors. and the Lord and Lady of the River offered them a chance at salvation. They would live in a sort of sleep for centuries in the depths of the river. Those who knew the proper spell, to be recited on the spring solstice, could request them as champions in a just cause. If the gods approved, they would be released to serve the supplicant. They had until the summer equinox to succeed, or they, and the supplicant, would be damned until the end of time.

The five, Gideon, Kane, Murdoch, Averel and Duncan are aided by animal avatars that rest as painting on their shields until released by the proper spell. They have supernatural powers of healing, and do not age.

In the series, they are summoned by Merewan, who is oppressed, along with her people at her estate, but her guardian uncle. What she does not realize is that there is a more serious magical evil threatening the entire country.

How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
