    Comments about Everything Castles:

    I bought this for my 13-year-old, and he couldn't put it down. He loved the big pictures and the stories about knights, jousting and castle battles. He had fun quizzing me to test my knowledge of castles and see if I could tell myths from facts. I only wish the book was a little bigger-he's already read it twice!

    Doomsday Castle 2-DVD Set
    Doomsday Castle 2-DVD Set
    (Based on 1 review)
    Category: DVDs/Adventure and Exploration

    Castles: they could be considered were the ultimate homes for medieval preppers, kings and nobleman who were under constant threat from neighboring enemies. But for American prepper Brent, these relics of the Dark Ages are still the most desirable quarters for the doomsday scenario he fears, an electromagnetic burst where the power grid fails resulting in a blackout. Brent is summoning his kids—an amateur model, an experienced prepper, and a 41-year old who has barely handled firearms—to his partially built towering castle isolated deep in the Carolina mountains to help him finish construction and to test their survival skills. The apocalypse he fears might pale in comparison to this clash of characters as they try to live and work together to prepare for Doomsday. If doomsday comes will they survive to rule the mountains, or will it self-destruct before the castle is ever completed?
