Enter In Search of Adventure, the thrilling second installment of The Comrades of Honor series. Packed with action at every bend, this tale takes up the story of Nathaniel de Lance, once the page of Sir Robert.
Now a young man and belted knight, Sir Nathaniel takes young Kenneth Dale for his squire, a boy left destitute by a stroke of ill fortune. Quickly learning to trust and care for each other, Sir Nathaniel and Kenneth become fast friends, little knowing how much they will need their mutual comradeship.
Taking advantage of his liberty as a knight, Sir Nathaniel leaves his boyhood home to visit old friends. The small journey quickly takes an unexpected turn, however, and climaxes into a perilous adventure. Old enemies revisit the scene, creating hazards that require all of Sir Nathaniel’s strength and valor to overcome. Trapped in a hostile country, the question arises: will he ever return?
Join Sir Nathaniel and Kenneth in their rousing adventure, and witness the perils that strengthen their courage. Their friendship is extraordinary, but will the rewards of their devotion be greater still?
A novel of adventure, comradeship, and suspense, as a valiant knight seeks to overcome his merciless foes and retain honor in a hostile land.
Targeted Age Group:
My dialogue is mainly Middle English. It’s easy to understand, but it gives you the sense of actually being in the Middle Ages. I also include footnotes and a glossary so you can understand the meanings behind certain customs or words. My series is adventurous and character-led, and each installment will generally have you on the edge of your seat. But, at the same time, you learn about medieval customs along the way.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t give up. Learn everything you can about your genre and craft, and then WRITE. Don’t be intimated by the fear you can never be good enough. You CAN. Just give it time and determination, and do not settle for second best. I worked for my first book for over seven years before it was published. I learned so much and you will too. Keep going!
