While most teens are concerned about looks and technology, Verena is obsessed with the legend of the Holy Grail in The Swan Knights, the new novel by Stefan Scheuermann.
Verena’s obsession leads to the discovery of the lost journal of King Ludwig II of Bavaria, a German king who died mysteriously in 1886. It reveals Ludwig’s secrets and an ancient enterprise to protect the Holy Grail. It also reveals the Swan Knights, the direct descendants from the Grail Knight, Parsifal, and a secret portal leading to the Grail’s hiding place.
Ludwig’s writings detail the many heroic figures and fantastic creatures wrapped in the Grail’s fate, including The Ancient One, a giant swan who has served as the custodian of the Grail secrets and teacher of the Swan Knights’ children since the beginning. Verena eventually discovers her own connection to the Grail and its stories, and the reason for her strange obsession.
