The Crown's Chevalier

By Bryan McCarthy All Rights Reserved ©

Romance / Adventure

Tyrol

In 1276 in the fourth year of his reign Edward I; King of England, Duke of Aquitaine and Lord of Ireland; was taken captive by Ottokar II; King of Bohemia, Duke of Austria, Styria and Carinthia and Margave of Carniola. In the early days of Edward’s imprisonment in Tyrol Castle, he received a message from his brother Edmund, the Earl of Lancaster and Leicester, whom Edward had left as regent in his absence. The message told Edward that Edmund was having difficulty getting the money for his ransom. A treacherous chevalier was robbing and attacking his domain! And yet there was something off about this message. The traitor was identified as Lord Wing the Crown’s Chevalier, Edward’s champion, who was the loyalist of his subjects. Something was wrong here and Edward knew it.

So it was that Edward wrote his own message. He wrote to his friend the King of Desmond to go to England and investigate Edmund’s claims, which were most likely false.

Unfortunately, the King of Desmond was unable to leave Ireland at the moment. Desmond was leading a campaign against a band of invading Scots and Welshmen and his eldest son was both bedridden and doltish leaving it to Desmond’s second son Conn, a boy of thirteen.

Upon receiving a message from Desmond stating that Conn would be the one going to England, Edward wrote up another message for Conn specifically to give him instructions. Conn’s instructions were to inform Edmund of his presence in England personally, then find people to stay with who could be trusted and most of all to never be alone with Edmund or his champion and Chief of Military Operations Barons Len de Beaumont and Dan Bertram of Igorboulder. Beaumont had been Edward’s previous champion and held a grudge against Edward for replacing him making it possible that Beaumont would kill Conn for being in England on Edward’s behalf while Bertram had murdered his own father.

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Grapes Are Juicy yes!!!: I give this novel FIVE STARS ! This novel is worth reading from the beginning to the end! The plot and conflicts in this story are very smartly integrated. The language facility is a little odd , but i guess this was done on purpose, given the novel's set era. Other than that, this should definit...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

spec4huff: Thank you for creating this world. I am a 6'3" veteran that thinks himself tough. But the piece of literature you have created made me misty eyed on a number of occasions. I want a love like this. Thank you again, I would totally buy this book and hopefully the sequels to this ever enchanting lov...

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

jessiehs: This was absolutely amazing. I loved how it went back and forth between perspectives. I actually cried at the end I was so happy. This was amazing. I can't even think of another word to describe it. Thank you for writing his.

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...
