According to the book description of Forever Avalon, "Stephanie Drake and her three children-Ashley, Rose and Hunter-are just glad to be alive after that terrible storm slammed their boat ashore on an uncharted island. What started as a one-day jaunt at sea to lay a wreath where Stephanie's husband and the children's father-a sailor in the U.S. Navy, lost at sea during a similar storm-has turned into a living nightmare. They find themselves in another world ... on the mythical island of Avalon, where magical creatures, medieval knights and powerful wizards are ruled by the descendants of King Arthur. On Avalon, Stephanie and her children find themselves being hunted by bounty hunters, thieves and brigands. They are caught in the power struggle between Lord Kraven Darkholm, a powerful wizard descended from the evil sorceress, Morganna le Fay, and the Gil-Gamesh, the champion of Avalon. The people of this magical isle have been protected for centuries by the descendants of Sir Percival Peredyr, the last Knight of the Round Table who served as the first Gil-Gamesh of Avalon. But who is the Gil-Gamesh and how does he know so much about Stephanie and her children? Now, it's a race against time as the Gil-Gamesh must protect the outsiders and get them home to the real world. All the while, Kraven Darkholm continues to scheme against them all, vying to achieve his ultimate goal of becoming ruler of Avalon."
