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. 🙂

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 loved Erin’s strip tease. It was funny how Eochaidh pulled her petticoat over her head like one would undress a toddler.

    You’re really a master at writing and weaving scenes in historical books. Being an history expert, I must say you have performed excellent with the topic. Most people have heard of King Arthur, but many have never of King Eochaidh The Horse Warrior and his tall horse. Well, as you know, Eochaidh is to the Irish what Arthur is to the English. I loved Tearlach hissing when he’s upset. You don’t encounter many writers who knows that Ireland was once called Ereland, or Erinland. What made you selected a relatively unknown character like Eochaidh of Niall of the Nine Hostages? Again, congratulations, you did a great job of bringing the old legend to life.

    Das Buch war wirklich gut. Ich mochte es. Ich mochte den Humor. Ich konnte hier viel mehr über die englische Geschichte lernen als in einem Klassenzimmer. Ich freue mich darauf, mehr über diesen interessanten Charakter zu lesen. Haben Sie historische Fiktionen über Deutschland?

    Heidelberg ist besonders bekannt für seine Burgruine. Jedes Jahr strömen Tausende von Touristen aus aller Welt hierher. Sie können die Burg von weitem sehen – sie präsidiert die Stadt wie ein König auf seinem Thron. Eine weitere beliebte Attraktion ist die “Alte Brücke” mit ihrer Affenstatue.

    Trotzdem Danke und Grüße aus Heidelberg – Schneider Feindler


    The book was really good. I liked it. I liked the humor. I was able to learn a lot more here about the English history than in a classroom. I look forward to reading more about this interesting character. Do you have any historical fictions about Germany?

    Heidelberg is particularly well known for its castle ruins. Every year, thousands of tourists flock here from all over the world. You can see the castle from miles away – it presides over the city like a king on his throne. Another popular attraction is the “Alte Brücke” with its monkey statue.

    Anyway Thanks and greetings from Heidelberg, Germany- Schneider Feindler

    Norshires is not wholly in this world. It seems to be in a realm partially in or on this plane and another. I loved it so much I overlooked the few errors. They aren’t nothing major. What was that fire thing chasing Erin in the forbidden forest? Even her horse ran like hell forcing her to hang on for dear life. Not many know Ireland history so well. I agree with the same. I can’t wait for the other three. 😘😘😘😘😍

    • Thanks for noticing that Norshires isn’t completely in this world. It’s partial in another world which make it difficult to find. The thing chasing Erin was a fire spite. A maliciously type of fairy.

    Great story. Can’t wait for the next part. The ending crept me out. Didn’t see it coming. You don’t realize the book is scary until you have read it and thought about it.

    That trip across the Irish Sea and down the Thames at night, when you think about it..that boat wasn’t sailing wholly by wind power. Azazel was powering that ship.

    I think one of the things that make the book good is the originality. It didn’t real like a supernatural book while actually it was. Even Erin meeting the goddess in the forest for the poison didn’t read like it was supernatural scene but it was. You are very good at making the abnormal feel like a real part of this world. That take skill. ✨

    Very interesting, I loved the thorough details you used with the historical fact and Queen Alyth. This was supposedly the era of “Women have been trained to speak softly and carry a lipstick. Those days are over.” by Bella Abzug.

    However, Alyth McDaniel carried a blade instead of a stick and spoke her piece very loud and very clear.

    This book would make a great movie. The book industry is getting all the attention during the Covid-19 lock down and recession. The world is being driven by the cyberworld these days, everybody has to learn to think for themselves and not follow the crowd. You struck gold in this aspect. Not following the crowd.

    I am assuming the next book continues with Woldeniel leading England to world dominance. I loved the story. It reads a little like mythical tale but much better. All I can say is that Edward the Elder should’ve not met that person calling unto him, to come to his father’s crypt in that weird-a$$ fog at such ungodly hour. Well, that’s what you get for murdering your own siblings. That shyte will drive you mad.
