King Eochaidh the Horse Warrior

book-cover

It was the year of 887 A.D., the end of Roman occupation in Britannia and still the very mention of his real name congers up of the dark images of hell, torture, vile things and fire. So he kept it to himself. At this time the Scots were fighting off the kings of England as well as coping with the bitter struggles of their own clans. Not to add their defense against the fearsome Viking. They needed all the aid they could get. But as their sphere of military influence grew they waged better battles against the kings of England. But was unable to defeat them. Little did they know who was helping them fight for personal reasons. Reasons this strange king kept to himself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the first book of the quadrilogy (4 books) that will begin in later March. It may seems as thus I have written a lot of books but actually all were written years ago. I am just getting around to publishing them. 🙂

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    I’m amazed, I’ve to admit it. The book blew me away. Rarely do I come across a book leaving me wondering about a secondary character. After reading “King Eochaidh the Horse Warrior,” I have to read the other books to find out more about Ana. Who is this Ana. Who is this woman powerful and sexy enough to bring the mighty Azazel to his knees. No woman or man, mortal or immortal can bring Azazel the Destroyer to his knees and make him behave like a man in love. Only archangels can handle him. Not even Lucifer can handle this bad boy. Usually if anyone speaks to Azazel the way she affectionately ordered him to do things. You need up dead and scattered to the winds or if found, you’re unrecognizable, missing body parts.

    I think the Vikings used a fish parasite commonly found in fish in that region of the world against Alfred the Great. I think they did it as payback for poisoning them with bananas. I had never heard of that allergy until I read it here. I looked it up and it exist. So if I got in a fight with a shield maiden I could win by throwing bananas on her?

    • LOL! Marian, I doubt you would win against a shield maiden merely by tossing bananas on her. They had to digest them. So I would suggest appear to her better angel or run like the wind. 🙂

    Fantastic story. I loved the action. It wasn’t an overkill in brutality but enough to let you know there’s a war going on. The English had been attacking the Irish and Scots for years for complete dominance of the island of Britiana and the Irish and Scots were on their last leg fighting the Vikings and the English when they made contact with the ancient king of their ancestors. Eochaidh wasn’t coming until he was told his castles were damage in the siege where they barely beat Alfred the Great back.

    Queen Erina is quiet a warrior herself. She has to choose between her heart and her country. She chose her people. I didn’t care much for the wife of Alfred the Great. She struck me as an uppity b**ch. She and Alfred were exactly alike. She was subdue with her brutal ways and Alfred wasn’t. She was having helpless women murdered who caught Alfred’s eye as if those women had a choice rather they visited his bed.

    • She was having helpless women murdered who caught Alfred’s eye as if those women had a choice rather they visited his bed.

      Thank you Mary for catching that part. You’re the first person to notice that brief paragraph. No, the women had no choice if a king, prince, duke,earl or lord found them attractive or favorable. If she resisted in some cases she was tried for treason and hung. Charged with disloyalty to the ruler. In most cases the offsprings’ status were not elevated in life. This is a fact that’s often omitted when people glorify the Middle Ages. The child was often stigmatized and in some cases killed depending the wife’s feelings about his or her existence.

      The popular show Downton Abbey merely brushed the surface of this horrible absolute power over the lives of others. You’re right, many of the wives were not nice people. It’s was all about exercising power.

    This book is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit, jokes, and your snappy comeback, I was almost moved to start my own collection of medieval figurines (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Way too cool! I almost died laughing at Eochaidh asking Tearleach did he see a golden tree outside when he entered the castle? Tearlach said no. Then he asked him did he look liked any of the crazy mythological people he’s raving about? It’s much funnier in the book than I’m retelling it. But anyway Azazel is lying is butt off and trying to make Tearleach say he isn’t who he know he is.

    Loved the battle scenes. They’re realistic. They weren’t blood-lusty, cold as in so many narration which are presented as if machines are fighting not flesh and blood humans. I place this on the level of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace. But it’s a lot shorter.
