After a night of turbulent starfall—a grievous omen—six individuals begin an intersecting journey that even the gods could not have predicted.

King Orson and King Odell are power-stricken, grieving, and mad. As they wage war against a rebel army led by Elise des Eresther, it appears as though they’re merely in it for the glory. But their struggles are deeper and darker.

A strong book with interesting characters and an intriguing plot – what more can you want?

In Dead of Knight, an omen falls from the heavens – starfall – and six people begin a journey, while two mad kings struggle for control over a kingdom. With darkness lingering on the horizon, there’s a lot more at stake than the glories of war.

There’s Elise des Eresther, leader of a rebel army, who plots against King Orson when he plans to take siege over Eresther, her beloved home town. Ryan, a former farmer boy, who left his hometown behind to work as a soldier, finds himself questioning everything he ever believed in when he encounters Elise.

Gwen is a woman with magical abilities, who must hide as a man while she boards a ship. If not for the enigmatic captain Adrian, who catches a glimpse of her true nature, Gwen’s journey might have ended differently. But Adrian has secrets of his own.

And then there are King Orson and Odell, two mad men struggling for power.

It’s the start of an interesting journey, as the different personalities clash, and a touch of destiny comes to interfere. There’s some solid writing to back up the plot, and overall, a pleasant reading experience. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
