A Story Never to be Told, is the fourth book in the Tales of Avalon Series. What happened to Azgoose, the clever old witch, who created the clouds of goo which delayed the Trajaens at the Battle of Merlport? Although the Avalonians sent out search parties, she was not found. In A Story Never to be Told secrets continue to unfold. In this book we meet the Rabbart lll, the powerful King of Barrmin, and his family. King Rabbart rules all the former kingdoms and tribes in the northern lands. King Rabbart befriends Arthur and the magical people of Avalon. He offers one of his beautiful daughters in marriage to Edward. Is Rabbart lll’s friendship with Avalon sincere? Will Edward remain loyal to Daisy, or will he marry a Princess of Barrmin to strengthen the alliance between the two countries? The answers can only be found in A Story Never to Be Told


I'm absolutely loving writing the Tales of Avalon series. It was great to receive positive reviews from professional reviewers like the US Review and Pacific Book Review. Nevertheless, it was a huge and unexpected surprise to be a 2017 Eric Hoffer Award finalist. There will be eight or possibly nine books in the series. Each book is a complete story but with one theme running throughout the series. We reach a final conclusion in book eight (or possibly nine).

Caroline Evans is a freelance illustrator and award winning artist whose work sits in two opposing ends of the genre spectrum - Realism and Fantasy.  All her work is drawn and coloured by hand with the very occasional use of digital wizardry to add special effects.

Caroline’s own fantasy illustrations are inspired by a childhood exposed to a wide range of culturally different fairy tale and mythical characters, which in her words, ‘allow me to forget about the real world for a while!’ Her work has been featured in Spirit & Destiny (UK) magazine and Irish America (NY) magazine, as well as the ongoing Magical Series of children’s story/colouring books. She has recently completed illustrating A Story Never to be Told, Book 4 in The Tales of Avalon Series.

Caroline has recently moved back to the Rep of Ireland, having lived in London for the past 5 years.
