KNIGHT OF GAELGARA

THE WAR OF SOULS APOCRYPHA 1

Sir Roslind of Aksson, fierce and unyielding, is not the only female knight; but she is few among men who cling to older ways. And while whispers of disdain are so easily heard in a land pushing beyond tradition, whispers of rebellion are more subtle, more insidious; and much more costly to ignore.

 

As the waves of religious reformation crash upon the shores of Aksson, a disgruntled son learns the error of his ways; a traitor leads an unexpected defence; an embattled cougari unsheathes his claws; and one who hides in plain sight will open the gates to a fearsome enemy with ancestral zeal in their hearts.

 

The Baron of Aksson is a powerful man, proud and ruthless; but he is fading, betrayal already at his door. As his daughter returns from years of training, she must prove her mettle in the fires of the old world as the siege bears down upon the great port city.

 

But one thing is certain.

 

Aksson will burn.

Axel J. Kelly, ARC Reviewer

…really captures the kind of dynamics that were found in real-world medieval realms. Martin’s really managed to create a world that feels like it’s ‘lived-in’ and dynamic…[a]ll in all, an excellent debut, and I look forward to reading more by this author.
