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. 🙂

A. White, a former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. 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 do not feel it is necessary to use negative words which are hurtful some other people in order to be straightforward and decisive about your writings. While making your decisions on how a book could go. Also, do write in a way that permits both the characters and the recipient of the work to be able to see it as pleasant. King Eochaidh is mean, nasty and condescendingly. These people called Ana a Moor.

    • Dusseldorf, thank for your input but I can’t changed how the ancient text describing Azazel if I am going to remain true to the source. According the ancient texts about him, he was mean, nasty and condescendingly to every one long before he became a Watcher.

      And the word Moor in the 7th to 8th century didn’t mean the same thing it means today. Back then it meant someone of the Arabian clans who had invaded the Mediterranean, Northern Africa and eventually invaded most of Europe. They were called Moors because of their complexions which were dark brown or near black to very dark,. the color of the Berbers. Back then being black wasn’t viewed as negative.

      The perception and definition you have of that word didn’t come about until nearly six hundred to a thousand years later during the African Slave Trade which the Muslims were involved in. In 1411 the Muslims made a deal with the Catholic Church to help wage war against the other half of Christendom, mainly the Church of Ethiopia because they refused to accept Rome as the See of Christianity. The slave trade was an ethnic cleansing by three separate sides each having their own reason. Not that any of them were innocent of their transgressions. Many Africa tribal leaders wanted them gone because it was taking away the fear of them and the fear of magic and curses. The Catholic and the Muslims were interested in the monetary gains.

      Many wars were fought in the Sinai Peninsula to prevent the slave trade from happening but it was hard to win when one is being attacked from three different sides.

    There’s a meticulous conversation going on regarding this piece of writing here at this web site, I have read it, so at this time I’m commenting here since Amazon won’t let me comment on their site. It’s truly a great story. Provoking so many emotions: Love, humor, sadness, jealousy, cockiness, loneliness, fear, angry, rage, (bigotry by today’s standard.) Futuristic travel, war. I don’t know how you put all this in one book and made it work but my hat off to you.

    Fantastic book! I loved everything about it. Most historical fictional are boring. But not this one. You didn’t kill a reader’s interest with heavy historical facts that readers could care less about. Eochaidh and Erin Alyth had an interesting but love/hate relationship. Why is Ana feel jealous of a woman dead love before her birth? That seems to be Ana’s only flaw. Insecurity of Azazel’s love for her. But how those two work things out surprised me.

    Your knowledge on this subject is extremely rare. Are you a historian? That’s a little known fact of what happened to Alfred after a battle in Merica. He poisoned the Vikings with bananas, so they poisoned him back with a fish parasite. Creating stomach problems for the rest of his life.

    Eochaidh and Erin…well it’s hard to say if they love each other or not or just enjoy each other…you know what I mean. But King Eochaidh was wrong for pulling Ana over the time line and embarrassing Erin in front of her guests. Oh well, he’s Azazel so why does anyone expect him to behave?

    Tell me, how does it feel to be an author seeing work you know is inferior to your own but yet everyone raves over it? Doesn’t it bothers you? King Eochaidh has it all but seemingly few people know about or perhaps thinks it’s too scholarly written to understand.

    • Thanks for visiting and noticing Eddy. No, it doesn’t bother me. I appreciate your inquiring of it but whomever they are. I wish them well.

      But had not the policy been changed the exact same year my books were published, all the reviews you see here would be probably be on the sites selling the books. Those interested in my work doesn’t seems to mind the extra click to see the review here.

    You makes writing a book seem easy with your smooth presentations of your books. I tried writing a few years ago and it seems too complex and it is extremely tiresome. Therefore, I appreciate what you do. I know it’s hard. I tried it and gave up. Everyone wasn’t meant to be a writer. Anyway, I am looking ahead in your next book!

    I have never heard of Eochaid but I have heard of several others. Have you ever heard of the Irish king who had horse ears? I serious. It said Labhraidh Loingseach was said to have had horse’s ears. He kept this secret by growing his hair long and having it cut once a year and then putting the barber to death.
