best historical fiction novella


Rhodes, 1309 AD

The good Knights of St John battle ancient evil as mysterious disappearances and insane devil-worshippers threaten to turn the island into a bloodbath…

When three heavily armed Hospitaller knights go missing from a sleepy village their Grand Master sends legendary hero Sir Richard-at-Lee and his sergeant-at-arms to discover their fate. Met with resistance from terrified locals, and whispered rumours of a blasphemous sect performing strange rites underground, Sir Richard finally realises he must defeat not only the cultists, but the faceless, unstoppable demon that haunts his dreams.

Fans of the Forest Lord series will enjoy this explosive spin-off novella that sees the much-loved English knight up against a foe that threatens his life, his sanity, and even God Himself!

“A fabulous action-filled read that manages to pack an epic punch into a novella-sized story.” Matthew Harffy, author of The Serpent Sword

Very good news for authors in Ireland and Canada methinks.

Knight of the Cross audiobook sample!

The full audiobook will be available from Audible/Amazon within the next couple of days. For now, here’s a short sample. Have a listen and share with your histfic loving friends!

The full production lasts just 2.5 hours so it will be, I imagine, very cheap. If you ever fancied trying out an audiobook but didn’t want to pay £15 or whatever, this will be ideal!

The Elder Sign…

 Not my pic, it's from a pendant you can buy here, just to give the artist/photographer credit where it's due:

“Here, take this and sleep with it by your side.” He pressed a small, flat stone into Sir Richard’s gauntleted hand and the knight examined it curiously. It was inscribed with the symbol they’d seen on the house on the outskirts of the town; a line with five smaller lines branching off it, like a tree. “It’ll protect you,” the merchant promised, “as it protects the buildings you’ve seen with the same stones outside. I must go now – if they discover I’m helping you they’ll kill me as they did my wife.”
He pulled away from the knight’s grasp and headed off into the shadows. “Come to me again if you need me. But act quickly – Dagon is coming!”

Knight of the Cross – just 77p/99c on Kindle, now! Paperback also available and audiobook will be on Audible within the next day or so!
And carving yourself a few stones with the Elder Sign on them might be a good idea in time for Hallowe’en

Not my pic BTW, it’s from a pendant you can buy here, just to give the artist/photographer credit where it’s due:…/hp-lovecraft-elder-sign-pendant…
