Story of The Acolyte
“The Acolyte series is a set of seven fantasy novels set in the world of Pell, created by C S Reid. The books follow the adventures and exploits of a ragtag band of misfits who live on the fringes of society. These adventures take place in a world that is strongly reminiscent of the Old West, only with magic.” (Wikipedia)
The series began with “Acolyte” published in 1986, in which a mysterious stranger called the Acolyte arrives on the streets of an old Pueblo. The Acolyte’s intentions are unclear, but soon he is embroiled in a complex series of events tied to some of Pell’s most powerful families and their covert agendas. It ends as the Acolyte learns that his life has been intertwined with that of Pendrake for many years.
