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. 🙂

About unholypursuit

A. White, an award winning former librarian, who is also a 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 later 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 curious have you consіdered changing Ana’s over all personality. She angry all the time. Have you considered making her less combative? I think a change in Ana’s personality would attract a large female audience. I noticed more of your readers are men.

    • Hi, I appreciate you taking the time out to read the novel. No, I haven’t considered changing Ana’s personality. She need to be tough if they are to survive. Those seeking to kill her aren’t going to change their mind about it if she’s nice to them.

      I simply writes, I don’t determine who reads it. I understand it is not for everyone but thank you. 🙂

    Hi, I’m an airline stewardess and recommended this book to a passenger. The plane was enroute to Ireland and I thought it would give them a thorough understanding of the Irish history. Yes, I know the story is fictional but it kept them quiet and in their seat until we landed so it worked.

    I read some comments and would like to add my two cents. Please don’t change these stories. There are plenty of feel good stories out there. The market is running over with them. Keep them going the way you have them going. This kind of change is what messed up the last Martix. I haven’t forgiven them for messing up the Martix and I won’t forgive you if you turn this series into a Hallmark Greeting card. Every story isn’t feeling good. Ana is just fine the way she is. That’s what make her exciting. She doesn’t spend the entire book being a wimp. I gathered from the first book there’s no reasoning with Nikola.

    I really like reading a post that can make me think. After reading this book. I had to look at another. Shoot me for saying this but I think_I have a sneaking suspicious the world has already seen and read the work of A. White. By this work predates “Supernatural” by many years. I think the creators of Supernatural got their ideas from this author. There are changes in the genders and race between the book and television show, (to make it more marketable to the American public) but otherwise, they’re very similar in many ways. Bea was changed to Dean and John Winchester is Ana, and Sam wasn’t originally a member of the family. Crowley is Nikola. Azazel is different not better but different. So, if what I suspect is true, “The Devil On My Trail” is the original. I’m reading the original “Supernatural” in the book, “The Devil On My Trail” it’s different and much better. I am not trying to stir up anything but the books predates Supernatural but in many ways are similar. So the one whomever wrote it first is the creator no matter how famous the copycat becomes. Also, thanks for permitting me to comment!

      Yeah. I got that feeling too. I keep feeling she submitted somewhere and they said it wasn’t what they were looking for but yet turned around and sold her ideas. It happens all the time in the literary world. If an idea sells better being attached to someone else then it’s done and oftentimes the real author doesn’t have the money or power to fight back..

        My favorite writer of this genre is Bernard Cornwell but I must say although I never heard of you, you come very close to Mr. Cornwell with your vivid details. You need to read about his Napoleonic Wars featuring rifleman Richard Sharpe. I think he has a book about Alfred the Great. In his story…let’s just say Alfred is a better person. Of course, he’s English and you aren’t.

        • Thanks for visiting. Yes, I have heard of Bernard Cornwell and have enjoyed a few of his books. No, I’m not English. I’m American. But I do not write on historical figures already widely written about. As to why we write on different subjects. I don’t wish to sound like a mere revision of Bernard Cornwell or any other author. I write on historical figures not so widely written about to create fresh new material.

        • Hi Dan, after checking out your suggestion. I am updating the post. As a history major I am well familiar with Napoleon Bonaparte and his military feat.But I try to stay away from characters there are already many fiction books on. This is why I chose King Eochadih and not King Arthur. Too much has been written about Arthur. I didn’t figure the world needed another story about Camelot.

          I wrote exactly how the English historian recorded him. Overrunning your wife’s people may not had been a big deal nearly a 1,000 years ago but today it isn’t exactly view favorable. And apparently, the early medieval historians didn’t think so either or they wouldn’t haven’t old us. I don’t dress up whatever the historians of long ago wrote. So not being English has nothing to do with my not writing Alfred the Great as a good person. The English Historians did. I simply weave it into a fictional story.

          I reviewed Mr. Bernard Cornwall’s Napoleonic Wars books. He and I write from two different aspect of the same subject. He writes more who the man was military leader and I write more on the aspect of who he was as a person. A man. I mention a little about the Napoleonic Wars in “The Immortal Lover” when Napoleon Bonaparte met his idol Casanova when he invaded Vienna.

            Bernard Cornwell writings are ok, if you like that kind of stuff but to me, they aren’t that great. I feel people only brag on him all because he’s a white British guy. It’s like reading a history book about war. To me, they’re emotionless and stale. All they talk about is great war and how great the hero is while is leaving out all humanity of the leader even if he’s a cold blooded killer. The man wish he could bring out the emotions in a character as A. White can.

    This is not a partisan matter at heart, it is a subject of a powerful king bending others to his will and to that of another more powerful ruler and should not be derailed by attempting to add partisanship into the story. I am glad you didn’t attempt that.

    • No, Alfred the Great isn’t trying to get along with Queen Erin. He anticipated the kingdom would fall when he killed the king and the crown prince. He wasn’t anticipating a woman like Erin to pick up the banner and carry on. He only attempt a treaty when he learns she isn’t as easy to defeat as he first believed.

    I just couldn’t go without commenting that I really enjoyed the book and how I loved that you didn’t try to modernized it. I feel some books it is disrespectful to do so. I feel it’s trivializing the suffering of those of that era by not describing what they went through. I couldn’t help but respond to those expecting a historic fiction to be written in a modern day mindset. To remain authentic to the time period a writer may have to add issues not considered proper to do and say in the present day.

    • Thank you Monique, I too feel it is trivializing the suffering of others to write a sugarcoated version of what was truly going on in that era. Hisotry isn’t pretty and we can’t change it. But we can do better. But how will we know what better is if no one write it?

    A little bit more inclusion of the Irish history and slightly less about Ana would appear to have been a greater strategy .

    • It would have been impossible to leave Ana completely out of the story when she’s the reason King Eochaidh agreed to help them fight Alfred the Great. Alfred the Great torched a castle housing a portrait he painted of her. He wanted that castle which he last saw her in safe from Alfred’s fiery fingers. He’s an Immortal. No human history is important to him. I had to establish something beyond Ireland as his reason for fighting.
